Former Hollywood “IT” couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie (nee “Brangelina”) having been squabbling for five years over the terms of their divorce and it appears the fight is just beginning.
The much-publicized separation has already cost both parties millions of dollars in court and legal fees with more financial attrition on the horizon.
Custody of the couple’s six children lies at the white-hot center of the dispute. Jolie has requested sole custody of the children (all of whom are still minors) over the objections of her former husband.
Also at stake is the couple’s sprawling multi-million-dollar French estate known as Chateau Miraval. The property was acquired before the pair tied the knot, adding yet another wrinkle to the affair.
Both parties have hired high-end divorce attorneys that charge upwards of $1,500 per hour. Additionally, they have hired a private judge that charges $10,000 per day. Both expenditures have contributed to the breath-taking total cost of the split which has become the most expensive in Hollywood history.
