Hot on the heels of Brangelina's shock split, the Hollywood couple's waxwork figures over at Madame Tussauds have also broken up.

Yes, the famous wax museum in London has confirmed the statues of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have been separated and placed at opposite ends of the hall.

So sad.

Madame Tussauds shared an image to Twitter showing the new placements of Brad and Ange, with Robert Pattinson now stood between them. A caption read: "Following the news that has shocked celebrity watchers worldwide, we can confirm we have separated Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's figures."

A rep told PA: "We reacted quickly to yesterday's news of the separation of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt and their plans to divorce by mirroring the separation in the attraction. The couple's wax figures, which were launched in 2013, have been split up and are now featured at a respectful distance from each other. Angelina is keeping Nicole Kidman company and Brad Pitt is with his several time co-star Morgan Freeman."

Angelina, 41, filed for divorce from Brad, 52, on 19 September, citing irreconcilable differences.

The couple had been married for two years and together for more than a decade. It's thought Angelina has requested sole physical custody of their six children, with Brad having visitation rights. They're parents to Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Vivienne and Knox, eight.

Both have released brief statements asking for privacy.

Angelina's attorney said on her behalf: "This decision was made for the health of the family. She will not be commenting at this time, and asks that the family be given their privacy during this difficult time."

Brad responded with his own brief statement, simply saying: "I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids."

They met on the set of action movie Mr and Mrs Smith. He once said the Jolie-Pitt kids could look back at the movie and see the moment their parents fell in love, which sparked controversy as Brad was married to Jennifer Aniston at the time.

After a 2012 engagement, they wed at their French chateau in 2014.

No reason for the divorce has been given but as with all celebrity splits numerous rumours have been flying around citing everything from infidelity to substance abuse, poor parenting and poor. All are totally unconfirmed.
