Brad Pitt He takes his ex-wife to the civil court. On Friday, the actor filed a lawsuit against Angelina Jolie To sell its stake in a joint vineyard, Château Miraval Winery, in France. Pete claims she intentionally sold it in order to “hurt” him and damage the business.
“Vineyard has become Pete’s passion — and a profitable passion, as Miraval has grown, under Pete’s direction, into a global multi-million dollar company and one of the world’s most respected producers of rose wines,” Pete Legal claims, per ET. “Julie, meanwhile, has contributed nothing to the success of Maraval.”
The lawsuit alleges that while Pitt was growing it into a hundreds of million dollar venture, Jolie hasn’t been around since she filed for divorce in 2016.
According to Pitt, Jolie violated an agreement between the couple to never sell their stakes to a notorious “outsider,” according to her winding. TooFab has reached out to a representative of Jolie for comment.
The lawsuit alleges that Jolie intentionally forced her ex-husband to enter into a partnership with “a stranger with toxic associations and intentions,” alleging that Schaeffler “also maintains personal and professional relationships with individuals in Vladimir Putin’s inner circle.”
He claims that Julie “knew this and intended to [Russian oligarch Yuri] Schaeffler and his subsidiaries will attempt to take control of the business that Pete has built and undermine Pete’s investment in Miraval.”
Pete says she completed the sale “in secret” because she was “intentionally” violating his contractual right. That right allegedly came from their divorce, which was finalized in 2019, in which Pete said they both agreed that neither could sell their interest in the vineyard without the consent of the other.
He is seeking to make the sale of the vineyard null and void in the California Supreme Court. The actor is also seeking damages “in the amount to be proven at trial,” which the jury wants.
