Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie made headlines last week by filing for divorce, 2 years after their wedding. This time, they are in the news over the $5 million they made by selling the rights to their wedding photos, as documents revealed that the final payout had a few zeros missing.
According to reports, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie received a massive $5 million for the selling the rights to their wedding photographs in 2014 and the money was meant for charity. The money is listed as “Wedding photos– Ending Book Value, $20,000; Fair Market Value $50,000,” according to the 2014 filing for their Jolie-Pitt Foundation.
The Showbiz 411 reported that that’s the only mention of it. It has neither been mentioned anywhere else in the charity’s 2014 filing nor noted in Pitt’s Make It Right Foundation. The income listed under Royalties in 2014 is at $ 3,961,140 million. If the proceeds are from the wedding photographs then it is less than the earlier mentioned amount but more than a million.
But the contributors to the Foundation have been listed as, Angelina Jolie Family Trust $575,500; Brad Pitt–$38,000; Briarcliff Trust (Pitt’s trust’s name)- $387,500; UK’s National Health Service– $8,293; Australian Center for AG Research–$63,407. Jolie’s lawyer, Robert Offer, also made a contribution of $5000 to the charity in 2013.
Though the $5 million fees for the photographs was initially confirmed by the couple themselves, the Radar Online reported that the tax documents revealed a lesser amount. The final price received was $50,000 for the photographs, the couple reported to IRS. However, the couple previously cited an amount of $20,000 for the photographs in the books for the Maddox Jolie-Pitt Foundation.
