Angelina Jolie is reportedly giving her estranged husband, Brad Pitt, a hard time when it comes to finalizing their $400 million divorce.
Fourteen months after Jolie filed for divorce and requested full physical custody of their children, a report claims Pitt recently offered Jolie a substantial amount in an effort to end their marriage for good.
“Brad basically told his attorney to give Angie whatever amount of money she wants to settle the divorce, even though they have a prenup,” an insider told In Touch Weekly magazine on Nov. 21.
According to the report, Pitt was willing to give Jolie half of his $250 million fortune but that doesn't seem to be good enough for Jolie.
“Angie has rejected every single monetary settlement offer,” said the insider.
She's also reportedly rejecting Pitt's efforts to gain more time and custody rights to their six children, including 16-year-old Maddox, 13-year-old Pax, 12-year-old Zahara, 11-year-old Shiloh, and 9-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox. As fans may recall, Jolie requested for full physical custody of the kids due to an alleged dispute over the way Pitt was parenting the brood.
Why Did Brad Pitt Offer Such A Large Amount Of Money To Angelina Jolie?
As for why Pitt's settlement offer was so high, the insider claimed the actor was motivated by his kids and doing what he believed was best for their future.
“He isn’t trying to buy Angie off and couldn’t care less about how he is perceived in the public eye when they do come to an eventual settlement,” said the insider. “Brad’s motivation is first and foremost the kids. Giving Angie a substantial chunk of his fortune will give the kids the quality of life they are used to with no changes.”
“Brad and Angie spend at least $1 million a year on security for their children, including bodyguards. The costs add up, and Brad wants to continue to pay for those things,” explained the insider. “He also wants Angie to continue doing all of the humanitarian work she wants to do without worrying about finances.”
Brad Pitt And Angelina Jolie Were Married For Just Two Years
Pitt and Jolie began their relationship while filming the 2015 movie Mr. & Mrs. Smith when Pitt was still married to Jennifer Aniston. However, it wasn't until August 2014 when they finally tied the knot at their home in France.
Since their split, Pitt and Jolie have both been linked to other people but have yet to go public with any new relationships.
