On Tuesday, it was once again proven that love does not last in Hollywood. TMZ announced the news that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are divorcing after two years of marriage and more than a decade together. It's definitely sent shockwaves across social media and now everyone needs to know details. I can't offer any insight to exactly why they split, but I can offer details about their finances, which is undoubtedly something else fans are wondering about at this time. What is Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's net worth?
Before we get into that, Jolie's lawyer Robert Offer confirmed the split via a statement released to Reuters, which reads, "This decision was made for the health of the family. She will not be commenting, and asks that the family be given its privacy at this time."
Pitt also released a statement. He told People, "I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well being of our kids. I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time."
If you've been refusing to believe the Brangelina breakup news, well now you no longer have a choice. It's real and it's happening. And, come on, you know you want to know more about their financial situation. When a powerful celebrity couple go their separate ways, finances are a big topic of conversation. Regarding Brangelina's prenup, it's unclear if they have one or not, but, what isn't unclear is that they have an impressive net worth. In what should not come as a shock, combined, Pitt and Jolie have a lot of money. By a lot, I mean, a lot.
After Pitt and Jolie's divorce was announced, Forbes released a report revealing the couple has earned $555 million combined since 2004. The business publication estimates that since 2014 and before taxes and fees were taken out, they earned a total of $117.5 million. Forbes also reports that in the past 11 years, she's made $239.5 million. Whereas, in that time, Pitt made an estimated $315.5 million pretax. In 2016, he made Forbes' list of 100 highest-paid celebrities and came in at number 94 for making $31.5 million that year. In 2015, Jolie made Forbes' list of highest-paid actresses for earning $15 million.
According to the Inquisitr, Pitt has an estimated net worth of $240 million and Jolie's is estimated at around $160 million. That brings their total net worth is $400 million. Whoa, that is a ton of money, but based on the big budget films they've made and continue to make, plus being two of the most popular celebs in the world, it makes sense. The accuracy of the numbers provided by Inquisitr is unknown, but Celebrity Net Worth also has $240 million listed as Pitt's worth and Jolie's as $160 million. According to The Richest, the Maleficent actor has a net worth of $200 million and Pitt has an estimated net worth of $240 million. All of the numbers provided are pretty close.
Whatever the exact amount of their combined net worth is, there's no arguing these have plenty of dough in the bank.
