The A-list Hollywood couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt will not fight for their financial assets but on children’s custody following the divorce.
With the couple having a fixed prenuptial agreement, dividing their $400 million combined fortune would be easy.
The ex-couple has 12 properties together, which they acquired preceding their marriage, as reported by TMZ. Pitt owns seven while two belongs to Jolie.
Three properties that includes a vineyard in France, a mansion in New Orleans and an apartment in New York are purchased together before they got married in 2014. The prenuptial agreement will detail on who gets what.
The real war will be on their children’s custody. The Maleficent actress wants sole physical custody of their six kids, Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10 and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8, while allowing visitation rights for estranged husband.
Pitt will not agree. Sources told TMZ the World War Z actor “will engage in a legal war” to fight for joint physical custody.
Joint custody is usually favored by judges unless one of them poses a risk to the children. As of now, Pitt is under investigation for allegations of child abuse following an altercation that occurred in the family’s flight to California, a day before the 42-year-old actress filed a divorce.
Jolie claims Pitt has an anger problem heightened by his use of weed and alcohol. During their flight in their private jet, Pitt allegedly “got wasted” and went wild. According to some reports, he got physical with oldest son Maddox.
Jolie, having a soft spot for the first born, decided to file a divorce immediately despite previously having a discussion with Pitt to file a divorce together.
Someone anonymously reported the incident to L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services. Afterwards, Jolie and Pitt were interviewed, as common procedure, when there is a report on child abuse.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s family are working on a reconciliation for the two.
