Angelina Jolie has turned over ‘all her financial information to Brad Pitt’

Angelina Jolie visits Peru to help the Venezuelan refugees

Here’s something that will make everyone feel super-old: Maddox Jolie-Pitt is 17 years old and looking at colleges with his mom. Can you even imagine? What’s Angelina Jolie like on a college tour with her oldest? Is she weeping the entire time and pulling out all of the baby photos she keeps in her wallet? Or is she too much of a Cool Mom for that? I don’t know. But Angelina was reportedly in South Korea late last week on United Nations business, and while she was there, she took Maddox on some tours of universities in Seoul. Apparently, Maddox has been studying Korean, and he might be interested in going to school in Seoul. Which sounds crazy to me, but sure.

Meanwhile, the Jolie-Pitt divorce keeps on truckin’ along. According to The Blast, Angelina has turned over all of her financial information, and now they’re waiting for Brad to do the same.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are closing in on a finish to their volatile split, and as always, one of the biggest factors was about money. According to documents obtained by The Blast, Jolie just notified the court she has turned over all her financial information to Brad Pitt and his legal team.

Sources close to the negotiations tell us the A-listers have been hard at work on a final settlement for their divorce, and Jolie delivering her financials was an important step in the process. Next, Pitt will provide all his financial information, and from what we’re told he is worth significantly more than his estranged wife.

As we reported, Jolie was mulling over possibly filing a palimony lawsuit against Pitt because they were only married a short while and she would not be entitled to earnings made throughout the entire relationship. The negotiations got extremely bitter, and the “Inglorious Basterds” star felt that his ex was on a campaign to destroy his public image. However, we’re told things have calmed down as of late and the two stars both want to reach a settlement.

One of the big discussions on the table is the division of the former couple’s winery in France, Miraval. They bought the 500-acre Château in 2011 for a reported $60 million and planned on passing it down to their children to own and operate.

[From The Blast]

For a few years, I’ve found it suspicious that Brad and Angelina have made no moves to sell Miraval, arguably the biggest “jewel” in their extensive real estate holdings. Brad has owned – and still owns – some huge chunks of real estate in California, and my guess is that Angelina won’t be able to touch that. But Miraval was purchased by the two of them early in their relationship. Why doesn’t he just buy her out of Miraval? Hm. As for Angelina being worth less than Brad… yeah, that’s not shocking. She really didn’t work that much during their 11 years together, which is why it was so important that she get the child support and alimony payment structure up and running quickly.

    Child support of course but alimony?? For a millionaire woman? That is kinda BS. If she were a housewife I would understand.

    • Louise says:

      I am surprised at this, too. I really thought she would just take child support and make some kind of stand. Obviously divide what property they own and any joint assets but I am surprised at this, too.

    • Thirsty Hirsty says:

      For many of their years together, she was a housewife. Remember she carried 3 of their six kids, and the others were all adopted whilst very young. More a house Mom than a house wife. And yes, she deserves some of what she enabled him to earn whilst she cared for the family. He willingly adopted the children as his own, and thus, they are.

      • Actully, she acted in, voiced, directed or executive produced at least 15 movies in during their years together. He at least 30, mostly produced – including along side one of two of Angelina’s.

      • Yvette says:

        Along with what BewareFlyingGlass said, I thought the only time they deviated from their one-parent-works-while-the-other-parent-stays-with-the-kids rule was with Angie’s film Unbroken, which was released in 2014. Perhaps I’m wrong, but I thought a Studio scheduling glitch pushed Angie’s production schedule back and Unbroken ended up conflicting with Brad’s film Fury, which was also released in 2014. As far as I can remember, that was the first (only?) time where one of them ended up keeping all the kids because both were working at the same time, and wasn’t that when they traded out kids, with Brad taking two at a time while he filmed Fury in England? No shade on Angie, she’s my girl, but I don’t recall her staying home all the time while Brad worked. She was, however, home after her two surgeries. I hope this divorce is settled soon so they can both get on with their lives. I can’t wait to see where life takes Angie next. A career in politics? I’d be down for that. :)

    • Maya says:

      Angelina has not asked for alimony at all.

      She has only asked for 50% of the children spending aka child support…

      • BB says:

        She should get it if she ever stepped aside so he could take a job. There’s no shame in alimony. Those sacrifices aren’t free, those are lost earnings on her side. It’s all my own speculation though, obviously. I don’t know that she actually turned down jobs so he could take more on.

    • BB says:

      If she made sacrifices in her career to take care of the kids so he could work, then alimony is more than fair. They always said they wouldn’t work at the same time, so one of them had to be with the kids. They initially kind of switched back and forth, but it seems like he worked a lot more.

    • anp says:

      Perhaps some have not read the divorce documents Angelina is Not asking for Alimony just Child Support.

    • anp says:

      Angelina is requesting Child Support only.

    • cee says:

      She spent much of the time they were together taking care of her children while he worked and traveled alone. So yes she deserves alimony.

    • Lucy2 says:

      She hasn’t asked for alimony, and there is no need for her to do so, as she is wealthy on her own and fully capable of working to support herself. She had some of the biggest films of her career while they were together, several endorsement deals, etc.

  2. Pas says:

    Page sux’ source said the finality is near. Pitt’s source said to access denying its near, there has never a resolution between the two. Lol let’s move on pitt.

  3. lalaf says:

    Saw they visited Yonsei University in Seoul. It’s one of the top 3 prestigious schools there and you’re GPA has to be pretty impressive for any consideration to even get in so good for him. Anytime I see a young person wanting to continue their education I’m all for it.

    • Jan90067 says:

      For a big enough donation, anyone’s GPA is “good enough” (see Bush Jr, Dump & Dump, Jr., Kushner…the list goes on and on)

      • Peg says:

        Donations help pay for children, who otherwise would not be able to afford college/uni.

      • Loadedfries says:

        Peg, that’s similar to the hunting-funds-conservation argument. Harvard has a huge endownment and so do other top unis. Scholarships can fund kids from poorer backgrounds without letting kids who don’t meet the entry requirements (Kushner sons) in because of large donations.

    • Chaine says:

      Considering he’s the son of two international movie stars I suspect that they will overlook any flaws in his GPA or otherwise…

      • someone says:

        Depends upon the school. Admissions in asian countries are of two categories-merit based and donation based. In the best schools, like the IIT’s in India, you can’t get in even if you are the Prime minister’s child, unless it’s merit based..

      • Peg says:

        Why would you assume that he can’t get into the college on his own merit?

      • Loadedfries says:

        @Chaine The coverage he’d get for them based on that fact alone would be worth anything. I think if the top universities around the world make “special rules” for people like the Kushners and love celeb guest lecturers, they’d probably make “special rules” for others. That’s assuming Maddox needs “special rules”; he could be an academic genius for all we know.

    • Bettyrose says:

      In the U.S. there are untold numbers of small private colleges that offer a solid education but minimal financial support. Most financial-aid bound applicants are looking at either state schools or brand name private schools with large funding, but kids with college funds and a creative spirit have numerous options among schools with flexible admission criteria.

  4. BigGirl says:

    Anyone know the privately tutored schools are evaluated for University? I know we always have the homeschooled kids come in and take AP and the standaized tests at the end of the year, if they choose. The state also evaluate work samples for their grade level but how do they get into uni.?

    • minx says:

      In the US they would take the ACT or SAT college admissions tests. My kids took both because some colleges prefer one over the other.

      • Chaine says:

        I agree, even if you went to a school, if your ACT or SaT scores are good enough you can get in without completing high school or getting your diploma at all. Didn’t Ronan Farrow start college at like age 10 or something?

    • Peg says:

      Ronan Farrow started at 11 graduated at 15.

  5. Maya says:

    At Kaiser: the same day Angelina submitted her financial situation and requested Brad to do the same, Brad legally filed for extension.

    6 months and Brad has filed for the divorce to be extended twice now.

    People claimed Angelina was stalling but it is pretty clear Brad is the one who is.

    • Indigo says:

      How do you know Brad filed for an extension?

    • Lilly says:

      He seems to think there will be a perfect time and I’ve seen men extend things just to have some feeling of control, even if the woman asks for nothing. I doubt she’s asking for anything unreasonable and whatever he hopes will rehabilitate his image will take time, if ever, and work. He probably wants to see how his latest movie will be received and whatever power he feels from that. Urgh Brad.

  6. Talie says:

    I’m sure she now feels it was a huge mistake not to marry him sooner with alimony.

    Child support has been tamped down a lot lately in these celeb cases – judges just don’t sign off on big monthly payments anymore.

  7. crogirl says:

    Kaiser why do you always act as if everything about Miraval is Brad’s decision only? It’s half Angie’s and if she doesn’t wanna sell it that’s her right.

    • LNG says:

      Angelina may not be able to afford to buy Brad out. If she can’t, then what happens to it is completely up to Brad. He either buys her out or he doesn’t and they sell.

      • BearcatLawyer says:

        Or he deeds his share over to her and gets a credit for its value against other joint assets to be split in the divorce.

  8. anp says:

    Reality check both Angelina and Brad have to turn over their financial assets. Angelina wants her divorce by the end of the year. He is the one who wants an extension.

    The public has a short attention span he has deflected what he did to his family and his MIR Foundation. He is such an overrated actor and producer he knows he will gets a pass just like trump does.

    The truth will come out eventually about him.

  9. Huckle says:

    I really like these pictures of her. Her makeup isn’t typically heavy anyway but she looks really natural and lovely here. Don’t really care about their divorce because it’s not my business.

    • minx says:

      She looks beautiful.

    • BB says:

      I love a natural lip color on her. The red lip kind of ends up dwarfing her other features, but with a natural lip color her eyes just look so big and gorgeous. She’s a stunning woman.

      She’s got great eyebrows too. It’s like her fourth best feature so they never get mentioned, but I’ve got serious brow envy.

    • Erinn says:

      I was thinking the same. She looks incredibly nice here – probably one of my favorite photo sets of her in a while. The length and color of her hair looks great.

    • iconoclast59 says:

      I agree; Ange looks great. My only (minor) quibble is that her hair seems thinner than before, but that’s likely due to the early medical menopause from having her ovaries removed.

  10. Jellybean says:

    It is interesting that Laura Wasser mediated Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner’s divorce to completion. Apparently neither had their own lawyer, she acted on both their behalf to reach an amicable conclusion. It included her standard ‘you will not be rude about each other in front of the kids’ and has made them attend co-parenting therapy for at least 6 months. They have 50:50 custody. That is such a good way to conduct a divorce when children are involved.

    • Eliza says:

      But Brad wanted everything. Good image, all his money, time with the kids when he’s available only. After he hit a kid “not in the face” and stole an airport vehicle and drunkenly drove off from the scene he got pissed bc she dared to leave him and blame her for making him look bad.

      Ben is a mess but he’s not pretending he doesn’t have problems. He’s not fighting her. He’s letting Jen take reigns and fighting with his own demons.

      • BB says:

        The airport fuel truck thing was debunked. He’d have faced federal charges if he’d done that, that’s like homeland security level stuff. Plus the people that work at the airport said it never happened.

      • CairinaCat says:

        Ok so forget the fuel truck, focus on him hitting his kid “not in the face”

    • MarcelMarcel says:

      It’s a great way to manage a divorce however it requires two willing parents.

      My sister could never do that with her former husband. He was abusive. My mum bankrolled her leaving with the kids seven years ago. His mother guilt tripped my sister and tried to convince her to take him back. When she found a new church he followed and made it to awkward for her to attend. If he had 50/50 custody than he would have just used it as a way of controlling her.

      I don’t know anything about Angelina’s situation with Brad. And I don’t really need to because it’s none of my business. What I do know is that an amicable divorce requires parents willing to be amicable and sadly that isn’t always the case.

    • BB says:

      I don’t think there was any way Brangelina’s divorce was going to be anything but contentious. Their relationship was intense. The kind of thing they had doesn’t fizzle, it explodes, one way or another.

    • Loadedfries says:

      Jellybean, I had no clue Wasser was also the Garner/Affleck lawyer. She deserves her impeccable reputation. BB, didn’t Drew Pinsky predict exactly what you’re saying years ago? And yes the fuel truck rumour has been debunked.

    • Huckle says:

      That’s what a mediator does though right? They’re impartial and work with each side to come to an amicable resolution. I mean they’re typically attorneys or are at least authorized by the jurisdiction they’re in to be a mediator.

    • Hmmm says:

      Ben affleck didn’t abuse his kids.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        that you know of.

        and I’d say acting like the textbook case of mid-life crisis by banging the nanny and consistently cheating on mom while stumbling around drunk is kind of abusive to your kids.

        no, we don’t have a report of him hitting his kid “not in the face”, but his behavior was certainly emotionally abusive.

    • DS9 says:

      I get the sense that Ben is ashamed of his behavior and the hurt it’s caused his wife and kids.

      Brad doesn’t seem to think he’s done anything wrong and seems to want to punish his wife and children.

      This “best for your children” bit is all well and good when both parties behave according to that goal. When one party doesn’t, well here we are.

    • Lucy2 says:

      I think that’s a great way to do it, but both parents need to be on board and willing to work together.
      Clearly not happening with B & A.

  11. SJhere says:

    Get on with finalizing this divorce, get it over with.
    Pitt, you will not regain your previous reputation no matter how long you try to keep dragging this out.
    These 2 multi-millionaires..make me tired. Actually, BP makes me tired as hell.
    Isn’t he early-mid 50′s? Grow up already!

    IMO, AJ-P, has done the most of the heavy lifting in their relationship. She will be the custodial parent for at least 6-8 years yet. How long is BP going to have his PR team keep BS-ing around? He is not going to be hands on daily with any of their kids. I bet when all is said and done, BP will still be spending his time on himself with the kids as a after thought/PR move.

    Wait until one or all of the kids writes their version of “Mommy Dearest”.

    And, btw, yes realizing the Maddox is now college age does make me feel time is flying.
    If he’s interested in college, I say good for him. Certainly all of the J-P children can afford opportunities most of us can only dream of.

  12. Karen says:

    Schools that are test optional usually require home-schooled or international students to submit scores from SATs or ACTs. Maddox would have had to taken those tests. Applications due end of year.

  13. JoJo says:

    Pax is in Seoul too.I’ve seen lots of pics of him on fan pages and a couple of pics of Maddox.

    • Nichole says:

      I was curious about Pax Jolie fan pages, so I googled and found one – goodness gracious, the one I found sure isn’t a fan of Angelina. Which is ironic, given the name of their forum!

      • Hmmm says:

        Some of those Brangelina fansites are really Brad fans. It’s weird how they’re so focuses on AJ and her kids tho. I’ve noticed that AJ fans are more than happy that she finally divorced his sorry ass. His fans are trapped and still mad at her for leaving him

  14. Bahare says:

    My son is a director of admissions for a large Virginia university and one of the major concerns is student retention with home schooled and alternatively schooled kids.They meet the admission standard but may drop out at greater rates. I think I will ask him to clarify exactly how it works and why.

    • BB says:

      I imagine going from specialized, one on one teaching to a large class of 300 kids and 1 professor (as many introductory college courses at large state universities are) is a bit jarring, to say the least. If you’re not used to the rigidity and pace, it’s probably a little isolating.

      I wasn’t homeschooled, but I assume you can move at your own pace, spending more time on certain things and less time on others, as needed. And that’s just from a learning standpoint. Most homeschooled kids are properly socialized, but there are always those who weren’t that may have additional struggles.

    • Lucy2 says:

      I was wondering about that, it has to be a huge change, especially if going to a large university.

  15. anp says:

    Congratulation Angelina! You have done a Great Job raising all your children.

  16. WingKingdom says:

    As for Miraval, if the intention was always to pass it down to their children, perhaps that hasn’t changed.

  17. Loadedfries says:

    I thought their people clarified pretty early on after divorce filing that Miraval was going to be kept for their kids as like a family/heritage thing? That place is going to be producing other stuff too in addition to the rose, which is selling well from recollection. I think they know its potential.

    This d is dragging on forever. I think the financial stuff is super complex but also the custody stuff obviously.

    • Erinn says:

      That’s what I assumed. If it’s making money, there’s no reason for them to just sell it off. They can split the profit and keep it running for the kids to eventually inherit, or whatever.

  18. Sidewithkids says:

    Angie has never asked to alimony. She just wants half of child support, what he should do for his kids.

    Also, I think maybe Brad hasn’t managed his money right. Why not do give his finances so this can be over w/. Seems like something’s fishy on his side.

    • AD says:

      You are right something is fishy on BP financial side, apparently he has requested for another extension, reason?. Yet he is bluffing that he can’t wait for the divorce, nightmare, to be over. Lies,lies. Mind you Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner took them 3 years to finalise their divorce.

  19. Hmmm says:

    I think she is crying. Remember in an interview she said something about crying about one of his birthdays. She’s a normal mom. The only difference is her kids are going to international schools.

  20. Hmmm says:

    Btw AJ owns something on his Los Feliz property. She asked for $ for whatever she owns they’re early in the divorce paper. Also the reason he doesn’t buy her out is because she wants to keep a stake in that. She’s the reason they bought that home in France.

    I remember an old interview she did when she was promoting Alexander . She promised someone that she would learn French.. It was important to her and that’s why her twins were born in France. Even before Brad she was living in Europe. That’s her thing. But just like everything else in his life he stole that persona and took credit for it.

  21. truth hurts says:

    Truth is to all the folks who don’t know. Angelina filed for physical sole custody and Brad visitation rights. She didn’t want alimony or child support. He signed a temporary agreement giving her custody that has been upheld for this long. I think now her new lawyer wants him to pay her child support for the time she has had physical custody because he did not willingly help them meaning her his still wife and 6 children with 5 find somewhere to live. He however loaned her 8 million with interest to house his six kids which seems fine with people because she is just a witch.
    If that isn’t spiteful I don’t know what is, Plus he says he paid 1.5 million in doctors and security. Probably inflated. I can imagine gossips trying to get a peek at her financial disclosure so they can do what the Blast just did.
    He has not been amicable even from day one because he complained about having to drive so far to see his kids at Wasser’s office. Did not comply with the therapists wishes and shrugged at the idea that some of his kids didn’t want to see him by saying give their time to the ones who did. Nice isn’t he. His team engaged in an all out barrage against Jolie and she is still standing. Hit pieces, his friends leaking stuff and just 6 months into the divorce declaring Pitt was slowly dating and just wanted to see his kids. BS.
    I am sick of him and the constant coddling. I puke at the sight of him now.

    • Jennifer says:

      Hear, hear!

    • Loadedfries says:

      On the loan, I read an article by a tax law expert, who was commenting specifically on this showbiz divorce, saying intrafamily loans are standard in divorce proceedings and that they really do help CYA for tax reasons. I’m sure both adults are to blame in this but I don’t think he should be demonised for following his tax lawyer’s advice (assuming) on the loan thing.

  22. anp says:

    Reminder and reality check to some of the public Angelina left him.

  23. Ellion says:

    I think he still want her back

  24. Sidewithkids says:

    This is when Angie needs to say something. She’s the one who’s ready to move from this and on w/ the rest of her life w/o him. She gave over the financials, he has not. She needs her lawyer to speak on this BS b/c now there’s an article on TMZ. I believe it’s just the same order going forward but it’s written like it’s new facts and smears Angie, like always. It’s really becoming redundant and it looks bad for him. He always seems to get upset whenever she leaves LA especially when she leaves w/ the kids. Pax and Maddox clearly do not want to be w/ him and we now know both aren’t seeing him. Brad and his team seems to want to smear her when’s she’s out being happy b/c he’s miserable. I do believe Brad is holding this up b/c he still wants to be w/ her. But when he had her and the kids, he couldn’t find the time, he screwed up royally? he wasn’t w/ them for a whole year before Angie filed for divorce. He wanted those tactics (lies) of him being out w/ women to make her sad and take him back. What a fool. He clearly realizes now he messed up and lost his family. I don’t feel sorry for him.

    I feel sorry for Angie having to deal w/ his BS.

  25. Still_Sarah says:

    @ Brittany : I guess we will all find out when he gets to college. I thought the kids were privately tutored along the lines of a Lycee Francais (International French School). But who knows.

  26. minx says:

    If he was well tutored he should be good to go.
    I’m a big proponent of public schools but I admit there are many ways to educate a child.

  27. Lea says:

    I never really understood the kids school situation but as far as I understood they’ve been homeschooled while their parents were traveling with them when they were little and the the older kids went to some sort of boarding school in England. Pretty sure they all had a good quality education.

  28. Peg says:

    Why would Angelina be funding schools in Kenya, Cambodia and Afghanistan? and not ensuring that her children are getting the best education money can buy.

  29. Jag says:

    The kids were/are tutored by at least one bilingual instructor because I remember that years ago they were looking for someone to do just that.

  30. Louise177 says:

    @Brittany: It’s pretty much known that the kids are home-schooled and go to private school. Not sure why you assume the kids are uneducated.

  31. Spikey says:

    “legitimate” high school education? My daughter was home-schooled and every bit as “legitimate” as sitting in a classroom all day 5 days a week. I’m sure that the Jolie-Pitt kids are well educated.

  32. Bettyrose says:

    Same. I’m a big proponent of public schools, but even some of the lowest funded, most overcrowded schools send kids to college, and I suspect the Jolie-Pitt kids have been at least that well prepared. (Significantly more so probably and they can afford to consider a wide variety of colleges).

  33. JadedBrit says:

    @Minx I presume you’re speaking from the US (our public schools are the likes of Eton, Harrow, Dulwich, Winchester, St Paul’s, Gordonstoun and the like) – but, to throw a spanner in the works, I don’t see why one would fan up the virtues of state schools, given their inability to teach students to correctly layout an essay, use adequate academic terminology and indicate on a map to which area they refer.
    I am teaching a student privately who was nearly destroyed by the state school system. In a year he advanced two years academically, is learning ancient Latin and Greek, the history of Hittite civilisations and the national mythologies perpetuated by popular literature as well as art and world history, Theology, politics… I truly doubt his former school could do a better job, given that they dissuaded him from reading Plato.

  34. minx says:

    Yes, I’m speaking about US schools, I know nothing about British schools. Both my kids got good educations in our local district.

  35. Bettyrose says:

    Jadedbrit – in the U.S. (and I assume in Britain) many children have no alternative to attending the publically funded (what we call public) schools. There’s an enormous disparity between schools in wealthy and poor communities, but one constant is that community involvement makes a difference. Those of us who say we support public education (and I don’t even have kids) mean that we value community involvement in supporting these schools, and improving them for all kids. A rising tide lifts all boats.

  36. LT says:

    @jadedbrit – I’m the product of state schools and have three kids attending state schools right now. There are many avenues to get a good education and, frankly, my employees who attended state schools tend to do better long term than my private (using US terminology) employees.

  37. .... says:

    Ditto. All three of mine as well. Very very smart well rounded kids.
