Hollywood star couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have reportedly signed a pre-nuptial agreement worth 200 million pounds.
The couple, who raise six children together, are planning to marry over Christmas and Pitt, 49, has had his lawyers draw up a 101-page document which states that, in the event of a split, he will keep his pre-marital 110 million pounds fortune and his partner's 90 million pounds assets will also be protected, reported Grazia.
And the agreement also states the couple would share equal joint custody of their kids if they ever go their separate ways.
"Angelina has always been a bit reluctant about having a pre-nup but Brad persuaded her it's for the best. He's a romantic guy, but also very practical, and given they're worth 200 million pounds between them, with six children and a lot of property across the globe, it definitely makes sense,' a source said.
"Both Brad and Angelina have been married before so they know how messy a divorce can get. It's even more important this time because there are children involved and Brad wants them to cover all eventualities," the source added.
The couple can't legally marry in France as they are not residents of the country, but are planning a wedding blessing at their French home following a ceremony in Hawaii, Jolie's late mother Marcheline Bertrand's favourite place.
"Hawaii means that her mother can be a part of a small ceremony on her favourite beach. Then the main event will be a wintery-themed bash in France with all of their closest friends and family. Everyone, especially the children, is very excited," the source said.
"They love the idea of a Christmas wedding at their French home, Chateau Miraval, with a big roaring fire and lots of festive decorations."
