Brad and Angelina sign R3,2 billion prenup ahead of planned Christmas wedding


Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have signed a prenuptial agreement worth £200 million (R3,2 billion).

The couple ? who raise six children together ? are planning to marry over Christmas and the Moneyball actor has had his lawyers draw up a 101-page document which states that, in the event of a split, he’ll keep his premarital £110-million (R1,7-billion) fortune and his partner's £90 million (R1,4 billion) assets will be protected too.

The agreement also states the couple would share equal joint custody of their kids if they ever go their separate ways.

A source told Grazia UK magazine, "Angelina has always been a bit reluctant about having a prenup but Brad persuaded her it's for the best.

"He's a romantic guy, but also very practical, and given they're worth £200 million (R3,2 billion) between them, with six children and a lot of property across the globe, it definitely makes sense.

"Both Brad and Angelina have been married before so they know how messy a divorce can get. It's even more important this time because there are children involved and Brad wants them to cover all eventualities."

The couple can't legally marry in France as they’re not residents of the country, but are planning a wedding blessing at their French home following a ceremony in Hawaii, the favourite place of Angelina's late mother, Marcheline Bertrand. -Bang Showbiz Share your thoughts:
