Jon Voight On Daughter Angelina Jolie's Divorce From Brad Pitt: 'Say A Little Prayer'


Brangelina is reportedly over and Angelina Jolie's dad, actor Jon Voight, has unloaded his feelings on the divorce shocker to Inside Edition.

"It’s very sad," the Midnight Cowboy star said Tuesday. "Something very serious must have happened for Angie to make a decision like this."

Reports of the split first appeared on TMZ. Voight confirmed them, but said his daughter's motivations are not yet clear to him. And whatever the reason, he's concerned for his daughter.

"I don’t know what it is," Voight told Inside Edition. "It’s a sad thing. Say a little prayer."

The 77-year-old said he learned the news not from Angelina, with whom his relationship has been strained at times over the years, but from his son.

“I am concerned for Angie and the children and hopefully I will be seeing them very soon," he said.

TMZ reports that the Mr. and Mrs. Smith co-stars' rift began over a conflict involving their children.

Jolie cited irreconcilable differences in documents filed Monday. 

The 41-year-old actress is asking for physical custody of their six kids. She is reportedly not asking for spousal support.

However, Jolie reportedly does not want Pitt to have any physical custody of their kids, only legal custody. TMZ reports a source said Jolie "was extremely upset with his methods" of parenting.
