The couple didn't sign a prenup.
Few couples in Hollywood remain iconic even after they get divorced. Brad and Jennifer are one of those couples. We all know them, we all love them, and while some people might root for them getting back together and some others prefer they remain separated, everyone talks about them.
They got engaged at a Sting concert in 1999, got married in the year 2000, and called it quits by 2005. Fans were always curious about their settlement, as it is well known they had not signed a prenup before getting married.
A lot of people think that Brad's involvement with Angelina Jolie during the filming of "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" was the reason the two got divorced, but this was never confirmed by any of them. By the time they got divorced, Brad had the highest net worth than Jen, so he was the one who had to pay her 50% of the earnings and assets made during the marriage.
However, it looked like Jen didn't want his money: the settlement was quite friendly and both parties ended up having money in their pockets. Aniston got the $29 million Beverly Hills home, and minor stakes in their production company, Plan B Productions. However, Pitt remained the sole owner.
The settlement was quick and easy (and friendly) as there weren't any kids involved!
