Hollywood megastar couple headed for divorce court

When a Hollywood couple decides to divorce, the usual result is a tremendous amount of publicity, press coverage and tongue wagging. However, as Virginia residents may know, when a Hollywood megastar couple decides to get divorced, the result can be a publicity shockwave of earthquake proportions. Recently, the news of a divorce for a superstar Hollywood couple has set all of tinsel town, as well as the rest of the world, buzzing about the news.

Actress/director Angelina Jolie has officially filed for divorce from her husband, actor Brad Pitt. The couple, who were married in 2014, had been together since 2004. In the divorce papers, Jolie cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for requesting the divorce. She is not seeking spousal support.

According to the documents her attorney filed in a California court, Jolie is seeking child custody for all of the couple's six children. The children range in ages from 8 to 15. Three of them were conceived and birthed naturally while the other three were adopted from different countries.

Their divorce is expected to take some time to settle because of the couple's combined earning power. Pitt is estimated to be worth as much as $240 million due to his salaries from such movies as World War Z (2013). He also has earned a sizable income as a spokesman for brands such as Cadillac and Chanel. Jolie's worth is estimated to be in the range of $160 million. The couple has also purchased multiple properties over the years that have added immeasurably to their net worth.

Over the course of their relationship, the couple has also donated millions to various charities. However, any Virginia resident who is exploring the possibility of a high asset divorce may want to speak with a divorce attorney so that they can find out how the process may affect these assets.
