When Angelina Jolie shocked the world with the news that she was filing for divorce from Brad Pitt, both sides were quick to release official statements. Since they did nothing to quell the buzz and inevitable rumors, Angelina has decided to release a second statement now that the news is out and people have been left wondering what the heck is truly going on.

Angelina’s first statement came from her lawyer, Robert Offer, and definitively said that her decision and coming actions were focused on the health and well-being of her family. Now, her second statement is very similar.

This time, the statement comes from a second lawyer, Geyer Kosinski. Kosinski told E!, “Angelina will always do what’s in the best interest of taking care of her family. She appreciates everyone’s understanding of their need for privacy at this time.”

There’s no doubt that, although this is surely a heartbreaking sitch for them all, this is one loving family who will make it through these tough times together.
