…. But only three of the Brangelina brood will get inheritance

ANGELINA JOLIE's late mother MARCHELINE BERTRAND left a large portion of her estate to her grandchildren - but only three of them. can reveal that Ange's late mother's estate is only divided up between Maddox, Zahara and Shiloh - because the tragic star lost her battle to cancer before the arrival of adopted Pax and twins Knox and Vivienne.

The actress passed away following a lengthy fight against ovarian cancer in January 2007, aged 56, and left her estate to her Oscar-winning daughter and son James Haven.

As executors of the estate, Ange and James put the final court papers in to a Los Angeles court earlier this month.

The papers reveal Bertrand had left her beloved grandchildren $100,000 each - but only the ones she had met before her tragic demise.

Adopted Maddox and Zahara, as well as Angelina and partner Brad Pitt's biological daughter Shiloh, will receive a large part of their grandmother's will.

However, adopted Pax, and twins Knox and Vivienne, will not receive inheritance. Pax was adopted two months after his grandmother's death, while the twins were born in July 2008.

Bertrand also left money to her sister, brother and nephews.

The full amount of her estate's worth was $661,000.
