Brangelina eligible for child benefits


Hollywood couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie is entitled to £1,400 a month in French child benefits to help support their six children. The sum is part of a financial package, but it is unlikely the couple will claim the money, reports

Jolie gave birth to twins Knox and Vivienne on July 12 in south of France. The couple already have adopted three children, Maddox, 6, Pax, 4, and Zahara, 3, and their biological daughter Shiloh, born in Namibia two years ago. Just before the twins’ births, the family moved into the 35-bedroom house. Pitt registered the family at the town hall in nearby Brignoles, to make sure they were known to local medical services. Confirming that the actors were now established members of the community and so eligible for benefits, Correns mayor Michaël Latz said, “They are ordinary and very kind. They eat like us, they live like us and they are very interested in the organic food of Correns. They decided to move here after visiting other homes in the region.”
