In their midst of their heated custody battle, Angelina Jolie is reportedly making absurd financial demands of her estranged husband, Brad Pitt. Jolie has a net worth of $160 million, yet she wants Pitt to dish out a ridiculous sum every month for child support. Will Pitt agree to the terms?
An inside source told In Touch Weekly that Jolie is requesting $100,000 per month from the Allied star. “This will pay for all of the kids’ expenses as well as set up a trust fund for each child,” the source claims, explaining that Jolie will put aside $250,000 a year for a trust that will cap at $5 million.
Pitt is working hard to win joint custody of their six children – Maddox (15), Pax (13), Zahara (12), Shiloh (10), and twins Vivienne and Knox (8). While Pitt is willing to do whatever it takes for the kids, he doesn’t want Jolie running the trust. According to Metro, Pitt’s estimated net worth is around $240 million.
“Angie wants the divorce finalized within the next 90 days, including custody and property settlements,” the source added. “But with everything she’s asking for, it’s unlikely that will happen. She’s making ridiculous financial demands.”
Pitt and Jolie have been locked in court battles ever since she filed for divorce in September. The couple recently announced that they are hiring a private judge to keep everything out of the public eye, although they clearly haven’t avoided leaking details.
While the couple continues to fight, E! News is reporting that Jolie just landed a new job promoting a women’s fragrance for Guerlain Parfumeur. The actress agreed to the deal back in 2015 when she was filming her movie, First They Killed My Father, in Cambodia. The company also made the preferred fragrance of Jolie’s late mother.
“We create perfumes for the women we admire,” Jacques Guerlain shared, adding that Jolie is promoting the fragrance, “notes of a woman.”
The new gig marks a rare public showing for Angelina Jolie, who has kept to herself while the divorce rages on. Apart from a few random shopping trips with her kids and a video appearance for the International Criminal Court, Jolie has put her the majority of her projects on hold.
Although Jolie and Pitt clearly have a lot to work out, they did release a joint statement last month about the status of their split moving forward.
“The parties and their counsel have signed agreements to preserve the privacy rights of their children and family by keeping all court documents confidential and engaging a private judge to make any necessary legal decisions and to facilitate the expeditious resolution of any remaining issues,” the statement read. “The parents are committed to act as a united front to effectuate recovery and reunification.”
At the same time, The Wrap reports that Ian Halperin is currently working on a documentary about Jolie and Pitt’s nasty breakup. The divorce has been one of the biggest stories of the year, and Halperin is prepared to release even more behind-the-scenes details.
Halperin, an investigative journalist, is known for his revealing celebrity exposes. He has written two notable books, including Unmasked: The Final Years of Michael Jackson and Celine Dion: Behind the Fairytale. He directed a documentary on Jackson back in 2010, Gone Too Soon.
With Jolie and Pitt hiring a private judge, it isn’t clear how much Halperin will dig up about the couple. He has, however, confirmed that he is working on the project, although he has yet to announce an anticipated release date.
Jolie and Pitt have not commented on the latest rumors surrounding their split.
