Angelina Jolie's 'Family Is Broken and She Is In Agony': How She's Coping with Divorce
09/24/2016 AT 03:35 PM EDT
A family member exclusively tells PEOPLE Angelina Jolie is "in agony" days after filing from divorce from Brad Pitt.
"Her family is broken and she is in agony," the relative says. "Her children are recovering from the events that brought about the filing of the divorce."
The family member adds that the mother of six's primary concern is for her children.
"Her focus is on their health and emotional well-being."
Jolie, 41, filed for divorce from Pitt, 52, in a Los Angeles court, Monday and stated that she separated from the Allied star on Sept. 15 – just one day after the couple and son Maddox, 15, were involved in an alleged altercation aboard their private plane.
The actress requested sole custody of their six children: Maddox, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
Pitt is accused of being "verbally abusive" and getting "physical" with Maddox during a fight with Jolie that "escalated more than it should have," a source with knowledge of the situation previously told PEOPLE.
The source said that Pitt did not hit Maddox, but "made contact" with him "in the shoulder area." The source says there was no sign of physical injury on Maddox.
