Celebrity News: Nearly a year after the divorce of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, the actors still have some ties that unite them. For example, a millionaire debt in which the Court of France has ordered that they pay 565,000 euros (US $ 12 million) to the illuminator Odile Soudant for the work he did in the castle where they were married.
No matter that the couple separated since last September, they keep the property as an investment and now they will have to pay a high amount to pay off the debts.
The lighting designer took legal action against the couple, noting not only the debt of the work at the Chateau Miraval, but this led to the ruin of his company, so he will even receive a sum to compensate damages to his reputation. The employment relationship dates back to 2010 when Pitt ask Soudant to enhance the natural light of the place.
This was a decision taken in April but has so far been released by the daily Libération. Although it is known that a contract of employment was not signed, the Odile firm received a sum for its work month to month. And it was that the project was no small thing, in it worked 17 people – among which there were architects, engineers and designers – and after two years of work they could not finish what was planned.
Brangelina’s romance lasted twelve years. They fell in love during the filming of the movie Mr. and Mrs. Smith in 2004, when the actor was still in partnership with Jennifer Aniston. They were married in 2014 and announced their separation in September last year.
Although there are strong rumors that divorce no longer follows, according to a source close to Brangelina “They have not done anything to advance for several months, and no one believes they will ever do it.”
The surprising twist in which it was one of the most media separations in Hollywood history was due to Brad Pitt’s effort to overcome his alcohol problems, which, along with the violent clashes with his eldest son, Maddox, had been the main cause of the break with the actress and activist for the rights of the refugees.
