Daily Mail exclusively reported that legal experts in Los Angeles say both Brad, 57, and Angelina, 45, have already spent over $1 million in legal costs.

The sources added that the legal battle may go on for the next six years.

The former couple have not reached a settlement on how to split their multi-million dollar fortunes or the custody of their five underage kids.

Brad and Angelina share six children: Maddox, 19, Zahara, 16, Pax, 17, Shiloh, 14, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 12.

An insider told the outlet: “Maddox has already given testimony as [an] adult in the ongoing custody dispute and it wasn’t very flattering toward Brad.

“He doesn’t use Pitt as his last name on documents that aren’t legal and instead uses Jolie. Maddox wants to legally change his last name to Jolie, which Angelina has said she doesn’t support.”
