Say goodbye to Angelina Jolie Pitt. Say hello to Angelina Jolie. The actress legally dropped "Pitt" from her name on Friday and is officially single, as is Brad Pitt, reports People. All the details of the split aren't quite wrapped up yet, however. The couple opted for a bifurcated judgment, meaning they're no longer married but are still figuring out assets and custody, per the Blast. "California is one of the unique states that lets the parties get a divorce without resolving all of the other issues," a divorce attorney explains to CNN. Pitt, 55, and Jolie, 43, met in 2004, married in the 2014, and split in 2016. (Jolie is getting back in the acting groove.)
