Brad Pitt is taking care of his kids in the form of a $250 million trust. With the actor’s nasty custody battle with Angelina Jolie raging on, Pitt is reportedly making sure all of his money goes directly to the kids in the event of his death, leaving nothing for his estranged wife.
An inside source claims that Pitt wants to protect his fortune and any money that does not end up in Jolie’s hands as part of their divorce settlement. To that end, he is setting up a massive trust that all of his kids will inherit once he dies.

The money will be divided equally among all six of his children: Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne and Knox.
“He’s setting up a firewall specifically intended to keep her hands off his cash,” the insider explained.
The source told Radar Online that Pitt has an enormous amount of money put away, and he is worried that Jolie will do everything in her power to get his fortune once he is gone.
Pitt, of course, is in amazing health and is not worried about dying anytime soon. Even still, he thinks it is important to start the trust now, when his faculties are still strong.
Pitt and Jolie have been locked in a nasty custody battle ever since she filed for divorce in 2016. Jolie has not said anything about the alleged trust fund, but she did attack Pitt earlier this year for not paying her enough child support.

While we wait to hear how Jolie’s camp reacts, Pitt has been busy filming a new project with Lena Dunham. The two were spotted on the set of Quentin Tarantino’s new movie, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.
Despite Brad Pitt’s ongoing drama with Jolie, he appeared high in spirits while working alongside Dunham in the film, which also stars Pitt’s pal Leonardo DiCaprio.
