Pitt and Aniston 'agree' £34m divorce deal

Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston have decided who gets what in their £34.5m (€50.6m) divorce settlement, according to reports.

The actress will be the sole owner of their £16.6m (€24.3m) Beverly Hills mansion after their assets are divvied up almost a year after she filed for divorce, IMDB.com reported.

But Pitt – now in a relationship with Angelina Jolie – apparently gets control of the former celebrity couple’s lucrative film company Plan B Productions, with Aniston retaining only a “minor stake“.

The production firm, which was behind a string of 12 successful independent movie releases including Tim Burton’s Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, is thought to be worth more than £28m (€41m).

Pitt and Aniston announced their separation just over a year ago. Aniston filed for divorce in March, citing irreconcilable differences. It became final in October.

The Fight Club actor and Jolie had been romantically linked since the filming of Mr & Mrs Smith but he has denied that she was the reason for the split.

She is now expecting his baby.

Pitt and Aniston were reported to have agreed the divorce deal through their lawyers days before the Friends actress’s 37th birthday last Saturday.
