Brangelina Break Up

Brexit has been described as one of the most complex disentanglements of all time. However, there is arguably a new contender for this crown following the surprise announcement that Angelina Jolie has initiated divorce proceedings against Brad Pitt. Their split will address a wealth in excess of $400m – making this one of the most expensive celebrity break-ups of all time.  Like the Brexit vote the bookies didn’t spot the Brangelina split (or BrexPitt as some are now calling it), with William Hill implying a low 5% probability at the beginning of the year. Drawing a point of distinction, however, one Twitter user noted that Angelina is now by choice in the singles market, whereas Britain’s fate on a similar subject might not be in our gift
