The end of Brangelina as we know it is only just beginning to really set in, but now we're left in a state of unknown.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's divorce is life changing in practically every way. A split between two stars of this magnitude will likely have a huge impact on their finances, their assets (both shared and separate) and most importantly, their six children.
Speaking of the Jolie-Pitt brood, what will Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox and Vivinne's new living situation be? In Angelina's divorce filing, she requested sole physical custody of the children with only visitation rights for Brad. Whether this is granted remains to be determined, but one thing is very clear: Both Angelina and Brad plan to make their kids' wellbeing the top priority throughout the divorce process.
Brad and Angelina own a handful of properties around the world, including Chateau Miraval in the French countryside and a sprawling compound in Los Angeles. They've also got money in the bank. According to Forbes, Angelina and Brad have earned $555 million combined since 2004 when their relationship began. Since tying the knot in 2014, Brad "has made far more than Angelina Jolie," Forbes' Robehmed told E! News. The World War Z star "has made close to $80 million...Angelina has made closer to $40 million, so he has made nearly double what she has earned since 2014."
Whether or not the couple has a pre-nup or post-nup will likely play a role in how Brangelina's wealth is distributed.
"They've only been married two years, which would mean the community estate is very small," attorney Troy Slaten told E! News. "[Since] California is a community property state, anything earned or acquired during the marriage is split 50/50. Everything you earn and everything you owe is split down the middle."
Forbes' Ms. Robehmed did not not "see why their divorce would impact their [future] earnings," explaining, "I mean many celebrities are able to divorce and work successfully in Hollywood. I can only think of practical things that might impact it, if they spend a lot of time on divorce proceedings or some other logistical reasons why they can't physically work, that may impact it."
Mr. Slaten didn't seem to think Brangelina's finances would be a real worry in relation to the split. Rather, their biggest concern is and will continue to be their kids. As he explained, "It looks like this a very serious conflict about what's in the best interest of the children."
