Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s nasty divorce is not only breaking hearts, but breaking the bank as well. One of LA’s top lawyers told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that the couple’s custody battle alone could cost up to $10 million. Read all about the fines, here.
It wouldn’t be an A-list marriage without an expensive divorce. Fighting for their six kids is Brad Pitt, 52, and Angelina Jolie, 41, who clearly don’t see money as an issue when it comes to winning this brutal custody battle. “The entire custody battle could easily cost Brad and Angie 5 to 10 million dollars in the next year,” David Pisarra, a California divorce attorney, tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “They will likely hire the best lawyers, have the best psychologists handling the children and due to the amount of children involved, this could go down as the most expensive custody battle ever.”
Dividing up six children certainly won’t be a walk in the park, as the Fight Club actor is already having issues bonding with them. As we previously told you, Brad and son Maddox‘s first meeting since the divorce ended up being a complete disaster. Maddox wanted nothing to do with Brad, and so their encounter inside the family therapist’s office was cut short. Angie has been doing her best to keep her children in communication with Brad, and is “backing off” from using “aggressive divorce tactics” to make sure their bond stays intact.
“The costs of the custody battle may include — weekly or biweekly visits with a therapist for each child which can cost up to $3-500 an hour and monitoring for him with each of the kids,” continues David. “However long he is going to visit them is several hundred dollars an hour. Brad and Angie’s team of lawyers are several thousand dollars and hour, too. It all adds up when the entire process drags on for months.” There’s no cost too high when it comes to taking care of kids!
