The legal battle between Bratt Pitt and Angelina Jolie continues. This time, for the vineyards they had in common in the south of France. The American actor, 58, has accused the actress, 47, of purposely damaging the reputation of the wine business they previously co-owned by selling half of it to a “stranger”, according to papers filed by their parents. lawyers in court and to whom the magazine has had access People. In 2008, the now ex-partner bought the Château Miraval, a castle and a vineyard located in the town of Correns, where she also married in 2014 and spent several family vacations with her six children.
In July 2021, Jolie accused Pitt of blocking the sale of the estate. The interpreter demanded in court a temporary annulment of the ATRO, a term used for the order that prevented one of the parties from making decisions or carrying out financial operations that affected the other during the separation process. A request that she requested after finding a buyer for part of her vineyards. “After all these years of trying to stop being business partners with her ex-husband on acceptable financial terms, Ms. Jolie is eager to close the pending deal for sale and requests that the court issue an order to lift the ATRO,” claimed the The actress’s lawyer in a written statement, according to the magazine U.S. Weekly. In February of this year, it was confirmed that Angelina Jolie had sold her part without the consent of her ex-husband, so Pitt decided to sue her.
Now, the actor affirms that Jolie “tried to cause him harm” intentionally by selling his part, according to the documents presented last Friday in the Superior Court of Los Angeles County (USA), which has been echoed People. He also assures that his wine company has become “a multi-million dollar global business and one of the most respected rosé producers in the world” thanks to his work and accuses his ex-partner of “not contributing anything” to his success.
As confirmed by Pitt’s lawyers, Jolie sold her share of the vineyards to Tenute del Mondo, a subsidiary wine company of the Stoli Group, owned by Russian billionaire Yuri Shefler, who claim that he is “determined to take control of Miraval.” “Jolie secretly pursued and consummated the sale, intentionally violating Pitt’s contractual rights,” the document reads. In addition, the actor’s team says that Shefler is trying to obtain “confidential and proprietary information for the benefit of his competitor company” and accuse him of having “ruthless business tactics and dubious professional associations”, which “endangers the reputation of the company.” brand that Pitt built with such care.” In this line, they add: “Jolie has tried to force Pitt to associate with a stranger and, worse, a stranger with poisonous associations and intentions.” For the above, he wants to receive compensation for “an amount that will be proven at trial”, in addition to the alleged sale made by Jolie being declared “null and void”.
Located in the heart of French Provence and covering 30 hectares, the Château Miraval vineyards cover two appellations in the area, Coteaux-Varois-en-Provence and Côtes de Provence, under which two white wines and one rosé are produced. . In 2016, shortly after announcing their separation, the actor couple put the castle up for sale, with 35 rooms and 500 hectares of land (including the vineyards), for 55 million euros.
This is not the only legal battle in which they are immersed. Pitt and Jolie were legally divorced in 2019, after a separation process that took years to advance, especially for the custody of the six children they have in common. The actor obtained joint custody in May 2021, but he lost it two months later. After that, he requested a new review of the custody of the children, which was denied last October. This is a new legal battle that makes it increasingly difficult to think that a day will come when both have a friendly relationship or they will be seen together again. Something that also seemed impossible between Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston, his first wife, but that came with the passage of time.
