The legal war between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie continues on. Though, for those keeping score, Jolie has won the latest battle over Château Miraval.
According to Page Six, Brad “has fought tooth and nail to have a court deny Jolie’s request for” subpoenaed documents.
The presiding judge in LA has ruled that Brad has to hand over the requested papers. Moreover the ruling stated that he can’t wait for an appeal.
Brad Alleges Angelina Is Intentionally Inflicting Harm
Brad sued Angelina early in the year after she sold her half of a multi-million-dollar luxury winery to a Russian Oligarch. He claimed that Angelina did so vindictively and that she violated an agreement they had in writing.
Brad and Angelina originally bought the Château Miraval winery and estate in 2008. They paid $28.4 million for it, later getting married there in 2014. The winery is located in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region in southeastern France. The agreement was allegedly to keep the property for personal use while investing in it, eventually passing it on to their six children. But when the celebrity couple filed for divorce in 2019, their plans went south.
Angelina sold her half to Yuri Shefler, a Russian businessman who owns Stoli. So, half of the Château Miraval winery hence became property of a wine manufacturing business owned by the popular vodka company.
Brad Supposedly Can’t Visit Château Miraval Despite Owning Half Of It
Brad’s lawsuit claimed that he personally had invested millions of dollars into the winery while Angelina had completely gone ghost. He claims that sale effectually “deprives Pitt of his right to enjoy his private home and to oversee the business he developed from scratch.”
The lawsuit alleges that “Jolie knew and intended that Shefler and his affiliates would try to control the business Pitt had built and to undermine Pitt’s investment in Miraval.”
Further, the two had allegedly agreed to not sell any portion of the estate without written consent from the other party.
The war slogs on. Stay tuned.
