Brad and Angelina and the agreement

By Staff Writer

It is rumoured that Brad Pit and Angelina Jolie are to split up after 5 years together. The couple were never married but they had allegedly signed a document that would function as an ante-nuptial contract but for an unmarried couple, although there has been no official confirmation. The couple have a shared fortune of just over R2.5 billion and six kids. The kids will always have enough cash but the details of the agreement will work out their relationship to their parents. So what was allegedly agreed?

 

  • Joint custody
  • Kids to stay mainly with Angelina
  • Pitt a 'brilliant father'

 

The celebrity couple has been in the limelight for the entirety of their relationship. Five years is a long time but it is not forever and unplanned consequences could make a serious dent in a budget plan, especially if you don't have the billions that Brangelina do. Lawyers to draw up the split agreement will come at top price although with a couple of billion in the bank that should not really matter. However at the end of the day celebrity status or not they are, in fact, real people.

Real people break up all the time, it's just gets more focussed when a celebrity is involved, but the costs, while maybe not as expensive as a top flight lawyer, will be similar. The split costs of housing and access, how much maintenance needs to be paid by whom and by when. Breaking up is never fun and it can be worse if you don't consider your personal finances especially when you have shared assets with your partner. If you are planning on a break up, have a long hard look at your budget plan first and then work out what to do next.
