Brad Pitt himself.

According to an Us Weekly insider, Pitt remains totally "crushed" by Jolie's decision to end their two-year marriage and decade-long relationship.

Almost more than that, however, he remains utterly baffled that it has come to this.

“He can’t believe this is what his life has become and he’s in bad shape but the kids are the only thing he’s hanging onto,” a source tells the aforementioned tabloid of Pitt.

“He’s been leaning heavily on his family and speaks to his parents and close friends and his manager constantly. His mom has been talking to him constantly.”

It's all happened very quickly, of course.

Just a few weeks ago, Pitt was looked at as one of the most beloved celebrities on the planet.

He and Jolie were considered as stable a couple as existed in Hollywood.

Then, on September 14, rumors say Pitt got drunk on board a private airplane and got into some kind of confrontation with his 15-year old son, Maddox.

The FBI has even been called in to investigate charges of physical abuse against Pitt.

The next day, Jolie and Pitt separated.

Then, on September 19, Jolie cited "irreconcilable differences" in filing for divorce. She also asked to be granted full physical custody of the couple's six kids.

Suddenly, the public is wondering whether Pitt cheated on Jolie.

Questions have arisen over his parenting methods, as well as his sobriety.

This past Friday, news broke that Pitt and Jolie have reached a temporary arrangement that extends to October 20; it will allow the actor to see the couple’s six children - Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8.

The document states that mother and father have joint legal custody, but the stars have agreed that the kids will remain with Jolie for the time being.

Pitt's first visit with the children after weeks apart will be supervised by a therapist.

Both halves of the estranged couple will also meet with a therapist separately from one another.

At the time of her filing, a rep for Jolie released the following statement:

"Angelina Jolie Pitt has filed for dissolution of the marriage.

"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."

Naturally, such privacy has not been granted.

There has been endless speculation over who said what to whom and who did what that prompted this shocking split.

Are Pitt and Jolie really fighting over the latter's engagement ring? Who will end up with the kids in the long run? Is there any hope at all for reconciliation?

And, yes, many are wondering: What role did Jennifer Aniston play in this divorce?

Don't expect the questions to come to an end any time soon.
