Megan Fox has filed for divorce from husband Brian Austin Green after five years of marriage.

According to documents obtained by PEOPLE, Fox cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split. She has requested joint physical and legal custody of the couple’s two sons Noah, 2, and Bodhi.

The news comes two days after a source confirmed to PEOPLE that the couple had split. In her divorce filing, Fox lists the date of separation as June 15.

“Megan and Brian’s split is a classic Hollywood story of two people in different stages of life and career,” a source close to Fox tells PEOPLE of the couple, who were together for 11 years.

“Megan is young and hot and sought after for work, and she is eager to move ahead in her career,” the source adds. “Brian wants more of her time than she can allow.”

The couple also apparently were at odds over how to balance family life with work, the source claims.

“She was overwhelmed with the children and her husband’s expectations, which got in the way of work responsibilities,” the source tells PEOPLE. “They had many disagreements and arguments about her time at home, which led to problems.”

Another source says that Fox’s shifting goals may have been a factor in the couple’s estrangement.

“Megan has always been career-oriented and noted because she was so beautiful,” the insider tells PEOPLE. “Now she is being recognized for her talent, and like anyone else with Hollywood ambitions, she wants to pursue those options. The timing just wasn’t working for her relationship.”
