Angelina Jolie finally parted ways with this painting by Winston Churchill, a prestigious gift given by her ex Brad Pitt.
A few weeks ago Angelina Jolie put up for sale this painting of Winston Churchill donated by her ex-Brad Pitt. Today, it seems that the masterpiece has found a buyer.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt formed a key couple in the early 2000s. Indeed, after his romance with Jennifer Aniston, the Fight Club actor has thus put himself in a relationship with the one who plays Lara Croft in the film Tomb Raider.
The two lovebirds were the perfect couple. So much so that they even started a big family together, so they had no less than six children.
To do so, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt adopted three children Maddox, Zahara, and Pax Thien before having their first biological child Shiloh. Then the actress gave birth to twin Vivienne Marcheline and Knox Leon.
So the duo will always be bound to live, thanks to their children, but not that. Yes, Brad Pitt and his ex Angelina Jolie also have a business together. Indeed, they manage a winery in the south of France.
Together they produce a rosé wine named Miraval. In fact, it sells in more than 80 countries!
Even though the two actors continue to work together, Jolie doesn’t forget that she’s no longer with her ex, to the point of getting rid of some of her gifts in the past.
