If you need a lesson in how to handle yourself in a breakup *literally a million years later* please look no further than Angelina Jolie, who just sold a painting given to her by Brad Pitt for over P534M ($11 million).

According to People, the painting in question is "Tower of Koutoubia Mosque" by Winston Churchill, and it was sold by the Jolie Family Collection for P558M ($11.5 million) at a London art auction this past Monday, March 1.

Per a press release from auction house Christie's:

"Tower of the Koutoubia Mosque was created following the Casablanca Conference where it was agreed by the Allied forces that only complete surrender by the Axis powers would be acceptable. It is the only work that Churchill painted during the war, perhaps encouraged by the recent progress made by the Allies in what he considered to be one of the most beautiful countries he had encountered."

The painting was originally gifted from Churchill to Franklin D. Roosevelt, and was last sold at auction in 2011 for P143M ($2.95 million). According to Page Six, the buyer was Brad Pitt, who gave the painting to Angie. I mean...making over P389M ($8 million) on a gift your ex gave you? Inspiring to say the least.
