What will happen to the huge combined fortune of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, post their divorce?

American attorney for Family law and divorce, Marilyn Chinitz has estimated that the couple has a combined worth of up to 500 million dollars, reports PeopleMagazine.

While estimates of their earnings vary, celebrity estate attorney Donald David approximates the 52-year-old actor be worth up to 350 million dollars and Jolie up to 275 million dollars.

The ‘Maleficent’ actress, who also co-starred in ‘Mr And Mrs Smith’ with husband, Brad Pitt had recently filed a divorce after two years of marriage citing “irreconcilable differences.”

As two of Hollywood’s wealthiest stars, Forbes estimated a combined earning of almost 20 million dollars since 2014.

“I would be somewhat surprised if there wasn’t some kind of prenuptial agreement. I would think that the financial aspects of the divorce are probably not going to be as difficult,” said a New-York based legal expert, Jacqueline Newman, adding, “My guess is that they are going to take the high road and settle this case out of the courts.”

On the work front, the ‘Troy’ actor is all set for his upcoming movie, ‘World War Z 2’ produced by his co-owned company, Plan B and the ‘By the Sea’ director is preparing for her upcoming movie on Cambodian genocide, ‘First They Killed My Father.’
