Brangelina Divorce And How Much Is At Stake?

Divorce is an ugly word — but when loads of money is at stake, it can get even uglier. Enter the latest Hollywood spouses to check out of their union: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.




 While the Internet is still reeling from the news that this golden couple is calling it quits, speculation is rising as to just what’s at stake considering the enormous wealth between them. The answer, however, may surprise you.

As a quick refresher in case you’ve been living under a rock for the past decade, Brad and Angie (as we like to call them) met on the set of Mr. n Mrs. Smith. He was still married to Jennifer Aniston at the time, but that didn’t last long. 

Aniston filed for divorce in 2005, and shortly thereafter, Brad and Angelina went public with their love by vacationing in Kenya. Since then, they’ve been busy: In between making movies, they’ve adopted three children — Maddox (now 15), Pax (now 12), and Zahara (now 11) — and had three biological children: Shiloh, 10, and 8-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox. They also bought and renovated a villa in the French countryside, where they make their own famous (affordable!) rosé. And in August 2014, they finally made it official by getting married.


But the important note here is the last one. While the stars have been a couple for nearly 12 years, they have been husband and wife for only two — and, based on California divorce laws, this means that nothing really “counts” in terms of wealth acquisition beyond the past 26 months. According to Forbes, they’ve earned a combined $117.5 million since that date, though Pitt contributed $76.5 million of that total, placing him far ahead of her in the earnings. (Though she was raising six kids at the same time.)



While that sounds like a lot, it’s important to put this into perspective: Pitt has roughly $240 million to his name, while Jolie claims $160 million. In other words, he has more, but she still has, um, plenty. As a couple, they own Chateau Miraval (where they make that amazing wine), a mansion in New Orleans, and homes in Los Feliz and Santa Barbara, Calif. 


So how will their assets be divvied up?

That depends on one important question: Do they have a prenuptial agreement? 

“If there is a prenup, the likelihood of these two people arguing over the validity of it is unlikely,” Los Angeles family law attorney Goldie Schon explained. “Both of these people have such high net worth, it would be crazy for them to argue over what they’d previously agreed to.” This would mean that whatever they had previously decided about how they would divide assets such as properties would be honored.

But while many outlets have speculated that the document does exist, Schon isn’t so sure. Reviewing the initial filing for divorce made by Jolie’s attorney, Laura Wasser, Schon noted that no prenup was mentioned. “I do not see in Angelina’s initial pleadings which she filed … anything about a prenuptial agreement,” Schon said before adding that based on her familiarity with Wasser, she believes that if Jolie and Pitt did, in fact, have a prenup, Wasser would have mentioned it in the initial filing. “I believe that if there was a prenuptial agreement, we would see some notation on the initial pleadings,” Schon said, adding that her guess was that “there isn’t one.”


But before you assume that means these two are sharpening their knives for the fight of the century, consider this: While they’ve acquired what would be a large sum of wealth to mere mortals during their rather brief tenure as husband and wife, it pales in comparison to the whole shebang, which means it is unlikely they will spend much time or energy splitting hairs over who gets what.

I just pray they sort out their indifferences. They should make up for the sake of their children. anyway it is well with them again

Mao Akuh said...

This is huge. But wetin dey pain me be say, I have never heard of Marion's name in controversial news as this. Marion na wa for you o. Brad na wa for you too. Men and sex is like babies and breast.

She must have planned everything before filing for divorce since she hired a private investigator on her husband who confirmed it.

Big man divorce... ike adiro'm

barbie micheal said...

But why do people date for so long and can't stay married? It's a shame

Robyna Fenty said...

They most likely signed a prenup. Besides TMZ has said that all she wants is full custody of the kids, she doesn't even want child support from him. The divorce will get ugly only bcos their is no way Brad will give her full custody of the kids. He even adopted her adopted kids hence Madox, Pax, Zahara "Jolie-Pitt"

Eka Joy said...

And the bvs will not cuss out Angelina for 'snatching' but they will almost eat Stella raw for 'snatching' Daniel. Oshisco

These peeps stayed so long together over six years happy and content as cohabiters with kids only to split after just less than two years in marriage. This shows that this marriage thing is NOT for everyone. It doesn't work out for all and sundry as presumed. Well I wish them well in thier endeavors. I love both actors. They are great people. I know their divorce will be smooth and sexy. No tantrums. Money mount thier shores wella!

They hv a prenup, just google it. As far back as 2013. If they divorce, angelina gets all the kids. All of them! Sole custody wit just visitation rights to brad. Everybody keeps their money. Their common estates will be dissolved and shared, thats all.

I don't see these two fighting over money and properties.

It is the custody of the kids I wish they will settle amicably... Hopefully it doesn't become a tool to get back at each other,Especially if one of them moves on amidst the whole drama.

I love both separately, but I do not support snatchers and snatchees. Karma was bound to strike and strike soon. My Jen will be laughing (secretly) so hard

Jennifer anniston as at 2004 was peoples world most beautiful woman and 8th sexiest woman in the world,that didnt stop Brad from 'falling in love' /'sleeping ' with angelina jolie. There was even a report that angelina was caught on their matrimonial bed. Now he is married to one of the best woman you can get out there, a very great woman humanitarian to the core yet he cant keep his loyalty to himself. He went after Marion cottilard the French actress. I remember watching her on macbeth last year. Well K*m*r is bi*ch...Ill take solace in the fact that I got my own copy only their joint novel 'Brangelina'.
