The long-divorced couple of Hollywood, Brad Pitt, and Angelina Jolie, were together for a long time before things fell apart in their relationship. During their time together, the ex-couple enjoyed various luxuries together, one of them being their New Orleans mansion, which they reportedly bought for $3.5 million in 2006. However, it was sold soon after the Maleficent actress filed for divorce from her husband. And the same mansion is back on the market years after their split.
