The sad end of Brangelina took over the media, as the same world that watched them fall in love watched them fall apart. According to an article in The New York Times by Valeriya Safronovasept, the love story of Angelina Jolie Pitt and Brad Pitt, who were married in 2014, came to an unhappy end, with a lawyer’s blandly worded press statement on Tuesday morning.
“This decision was made for the health of the family,” Robert Offer, a lawyer for Ms. Jolie Pitt, said in the statement. “She will not be commenting, and asks that the family be given its privacy at this time.”
Now that the couple is splitting, there’s a lot of details left to hash out, after all the couple has been together since starring in “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” together back in 2005.
One major area where they have invested a lot of money? Their real estate collection.
Over the years, the couple has acquired a handful of houses in Los Angeles, a couple in Louisiana, practically a castle in France and even an apartment in New York City. So will happen to all these properties? A Trulia blog by Megan Johnson lists and describes the couples’ massive real estate collection.
Here is only a snippet of the couples’ real estate portfolio, focusing on Los Angeles. Check out the blog for the rest.
Your normal celebrity couple probably have a mansion or two in Los Angeles, CA. But for Brad and Angelina, a home in the Hollywood Hills means a compound that comprises five different estates, bought piece by piece since Brad’s early days of stardom in the ’90s. Way back when he sported a long, golden mane in flicks like Legends of the Fall, Brad bought a five-bed, five-bath home measuring 5,760 square feet for just $1.7 million in the up-and-coming Los Feliz, CA, area.
Bit by bit, he added other nearby homes: a one-bed, two-bath home, measuring 2,454 square feet, for $380,000 in 1996, and another one-bed, two-bath house on the same road in 1998.
