Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are officially single, although more work is left before the terms of their divorce are finalised.
Los Angeles Superior Court documents show that Judge John W Ouderkirk entered a judgment on Friday, saying the couple are no longer married.
Her name was also changed to just Jolie rather than Jolie Pitt.
The couple’s lawyers had asked for a bifurcated judgment, meaning that two married people can be declared single before all issues in the divorce are agreed upon.
It is not clear what issues remain unresolved in the divorce, but Jolie has filed papers saying Pitt was not paying sufficient child support, which his lawyers disputed.
The 43-year-old Jolie and the 55-year-old Pitt have six children.
They were married in 2014, and Jolie filed for divorce in 2016.
