Angelina Jolie, a lecturer at a respected London university - and Oscar-winning actress - is set to divorce her husband, according to reports.

Jolie, who was appointed as a visiting lecturer at the London School of Economics in May and is a good friend of former Tory leader William Hague, filed for divorce from actor husband Brad Pitt on Monday, TMZ has reported.

The actress, who was named one of the 100 most powerful women in the world by Forbes last year, was appointed alongside Hague to lecture on the university's Msc course on women, peace and security.

If the couple finalise their split they face the daunting task of dividing up their not inconsiderable assets, including a wine business - the high-powered pair produce the popular Miraval rosé.
