Well that was unexpected

Words by Jadie Troy-Pryde

Brangelina stunned the world when they filed for divorce late last year. Since the news went public, Brad Pitt missed the Oscars because he was too busy making a statue, and Angelina Jolie has been showing her kids how to cook and eat bugs in Cambodia, because why not?

There was also talk that Brad had been texting his ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston, but it would appear that he has absolutely no intention of rekindling their 90s love story. In fact, Brad is reuniting with Angelina - and you won't believe why.

Brangelina may not be entwined romantically, but it seems they are very much bound in the world of business. The former couple still owns a chateau in France together, worth a cool $60 million (£48 million), and they are now venturing into the world of olive oil.

They have already established a successful business thanks to their award-winning wine, Miravel rosé, and according to reports they have decided to dig a little deeper and produce over 10,000 bottles of olive oil.

The estate's wine merchant, Charles Perrin, told Agence France Presse: 'Miraval is an investment for their family and their children. We have long-term projects and have just released the latest vintage of rose with our names: 'bottled by Pitt, Jolie and Perrin' on it.'

Slippery business for the former lovers? Perhaps. But the bottle looks really nice, and so it should. Just 500ml of the oil 'with notes of almond, hazelnut and artichoke barigoule' will set you back about £73.
