Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt's former estate recently sold for a steep price, much higher compared to their sale in 2006.
In January of 2005, Hollywood was completely rocked and blindsided, as the 'it' couple decided to call it a day... Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston released a joint statement, confirming they had separated.
“We would like to announce that after seven years together we have decided to formally separate. For those who follow these sorts of things, we would like to explain that our separation is not the result of any speculation reported by the tabloid media."
The statement continues, "This decision is the result of much thoughtful consideration. We happily remain committed and caring friends with great love and admiration for one another."
The breakup was not an easy process, especially for Jennifer Aniston. In addition, we'll take a look back at the divorce settlement, and what was entitled to.
The couple also had a stunning home, one that got custody of. Today, the home is worth a fortune and in the recent years, it changed owners.
Putting the divorce settlement aside, emotionally, the split was not an easy one for both Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston. Way back in 2005 when the breakup was still relatively fresh, alongside
“There are many stages of grief,” she told the magazine.
“It’s sad, something coming to an end. It cracks you open, in a way—cracks you open to feeling. When you try to avoid the pain, it creates greater pain. I’m a human being, having a human experience in front of the world. I wish it weren’t in front of the world. I try really hard to rise above it.”
As if that wasn't hard enough, . Ultimately, Brad Pitt got hold of the couple's production company, while Aniston was able to maintain a minor state.
As for the couple's stunning Beverly Hills home, it is said that Aniston got full control following the settlement.
According to , the recent sale came with quite the price tag.
It was ultimately sold in a private, off-market deal. The home was originally valued at $49 million, though it was eventually sold at $32.5 million. Talk about turning a profit, Pitt and Aniston sold the home in 2006 for a much cheaper price, believed to be less than $20 million.
According to ,
"The home, described by the Journal as a "French Normandy Revival property," has four bedrooms and comes with a swimming pool, ample outdoor space, and a championship tennis court."
"The French Normandy Revival-style home, which sits on 1.2 acres, includes a spacious outdoor area for dining and entertaining."
Pitt and Aniston bought the home in 2001 from entertainment attorney, Ken Ziffren. Jonathan Brooks was the one who purchased the home in 2006 from Brad and Jen. Brooks is a hedge-fund executive.
Surreal to see how much of a profit he was able to turn all these years later.
The couple lived in the home for two years. Despite the short-term arrangement, at the time, it seemed as though they were planning for the long-term.
The couple made several adjustments to the home, including a screening room, along with stunning new marble floors in the kitchen, which were heated. They also created a pub room with wooden floors, something that seems to be a Brad type of idea.
The dining room was another stunning part of the home, which wasn't short on space. The main table seated 20 guests... yes, the couple has lots of friends.
The former couple can still afford some of the more stunning Hollywood homes, as Aniston maintains a huge net worth of $300 million, among the top in Hollywood.
Brad Pitt isn't doing too bad either, despite some tough divorce settlements. The actor is also sitting on $300 million these days. Surely, in the future, the two A-listers will combine for a net worth in the billions.
