In a report on the Business Insider published on Tuesday, September 27, Justin said on Brad and Angelina's divorce, "As a child of divorce, all I can say is that's terrible news for those children, and that's all you can really say. It's boring to sort of comment on anything else. People are having a bad time — that's horrible."
Justin was referring to Brad and Angelina's 6 children, 3 of whom are adopted. Reports say that Angelina is seeking physical custody of the children, with visiting rights for Brad, and she is not seeking spousal support.
When asked about Jennifer's name being dragged into the issue, Justin said, "There's an endless appetite for trash, apparently, though everyone would say that they don't have that appetite. But I think a lot of people do because people buy it. But there are bigger things to b-tch about. It's shocking how much bandwidth things can take up when there are far more important things going on in the world."
Justin and Jennifer have been in a relationship since 2011, and got married in 2015.
