Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, famously dubbed “Brangelina,” were the epitome of the couple’s goals for over a decade before their separation in 2016. Throughout their time together, they exchanged numerous lavish gifts, one of which was a helicopter that Jolie reportedly gifted to Pitt.
Before their iconic romance began, Pitt was previously married to actress Jennifer Aniston, while Jolie was formerly wed to Billy Bob Thornton. The spark between Jolie and Pitt ignited on the set of “Mr. & Mrs. Smith,” leading to a relationship that captivated fans worldwide. The pair became parents to six children and enjoyed a vibrant family life before their eventual split.
Around ten years ago, during their romance’s peak, Jolie is said to have surprised Pitt with a $1.6 million helicopter, according to a report by the Business Insider. An insider revealed, “They added a helicopter pad to their home in the south of France, Chateau Miraval, prompting Angelina to think of the perfect gift.”
Pitt, having previously held a private pilot’s license, reportedly required a few refresher lessons. The source mentioned the couple’s enthusiasm about flying between their home and Cannes. Their French estate, Chateau Miraval, has been in recent headlines due to disputes over its vineyard. In 2022, Pitt sued Jolie, alleging she unlawfully sold the vineyard, contradicting their earlier agreement.
The couple officially divorced in 2019. Currently, Jolie spends quality time with her children, while Pitt is rumored to be dating Ines de Ramon.
