The Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt divorce just got messier. Besides their ongoing custody trial, the former couple’s wine vineyard has been added to their list of legal battles.
For the uninitiated, Brad and Angelina own Château Miraval, a $164 million vineyard in Correns, France. It is also the place where their wedding took place in 2014. Brad has filed a lawsuit against Angelina on Tuesday, September 21, in which he accused her of trying to sell her stake in their estate without consulting him. This move would apparently result in a massive profit at Brad’s expense.
Brad and Angelina have reportedly started another dispute over Château Miraval, the $164 million vineyard that they both own in Correns, France. (Not to mention, it is also the place where they held their wedding in 2014). This time around, it was Brad, 57, who filed a lawsuit against Angelina, 46, on Tuesday, September 21, in which he accused her of trying to sell her stake in their estate without consulting him first—a move that could ultimately result in a massive profit at the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood actor’s expense, according to the court documents obtained by Hollywood Life.
As per reports, Château Miraval is owned by Quimicum, a company in which Angelina previously held a 40 percent stake through her company, Nouvel. It was Brad, who originally held a 60 percent share of the estate via his company, Mondo Bongo. Prior to their split in 2016, however, Brad transferred 10 percent of the estate from his company to Angelina’s Nouvel, making them equal shareholders today.
Brad accuses Angelina of allegedly trying to sell her entire 50 percent stake in Château Miraval without giving Brad a chance to refute the sale or buy her out first. This Brad caims goes against what they had allegedly agreed upon earlier. As per media reports, the two had agreed to consult each other if they ever decided to sell their shares.
