Brad Pitt first accused his ex-wife Angelina Jolie of damaging the reputation of the wine company they bought in 2008. She accused him of selling half to a stranger. The former couple had an agreement not to sell their shares in Chateau Miraval without the other’s consent. However, the actress violated the agreement by selling her stake in the Stoli Group unit, a spirits producer controlled by oligarch Yuri Shefler. They soon began to fight against it. Angelina Jolie has won her legal battle, according to a new report.
The actress’ legal team subpoenaed documents from Brad as well as his company and business manager, according to a July 22 report. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt purchased the Chateau Miraval winery in 2008 for an estimated $28.3 million. They agreed not to sell their shares in the company. However, Brad sued Angelina, accusing her of selling his share of his vineyard in France. The couple also married and spent many family holidays in the vineyards of southern France and at home at Château Miraval. In addition to the famous wines, the sprawling 405-acre French estate is said to be home to swimming pools and a heliport.
According to a Page Six report, a judge in Los Angeles said Brad and his partners must hand over the documents to Angelina’s team. Although Brad and his legal team wanted to appeal, the judge decided they could not wait for the appeal to be decided. The report added that Brad turned down an offer to sell the property to the Stoli Group, even though he and Angelina were already married. Angelina Jolie filed for a divorce from Brad Pitt in 2016.
The couple met in 2003 while filming Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Angelina and Brad divorced more than five years ago, but their divorce process took many years. The dispute over their children, Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox, is still ongoing. Angelina adopted two of her children, Maddox and Zahara, before her relationship with Brad, who later adopted them both. Their other children were born between 2006 and 2008.
