Celebrity divorce lawyer Christopher C. Melcher explains how Angelina Jolie files for divorce from husband Brad Pitt.


After more than a decade together and years of public scrutiny, two of the biggest names in Hollywood are going their separate ways. The couple long ago dubbed Brangelina is no more.

The divorce papers filed by Jolie are revealing they may not have planned for this.

“Usually if a celebrity couple marries, there is going to be a premarital agreement that says no community property. So the allegation in this paperwork that there is community property might mean that there is no prenup,” explains celebrity divorce lawyer Christopher C. Melcher.

TMZ is reporting the Hollywood A-lister’s former habits of drinking and smoking marijuana may have been what lead to the divorce.

Top family law attorney Chris Melcher who represented Katie Holmes in her divorce to Tom Cruise says that can also be why Jolie is requesting primary physical custody of their six children. “There is going to have to be some showing more of mere use of substances to impact custody.”

The documents also show that Jolie won’t be seeking spousal support. Not a complete surprise considering International Business Times estimates the actress is worth $160 million dollars. But Brad takes the cake here and is reportedly worth $240 million.

Now we know some of that money will go towards attorney fees for the couple.
