Angelina Jolie wins ‘French winery’ case against ex-husband Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie has prevailed in a legal dispute with her ex-husband Brad Pitt over a French winery. The ex-couple had promised not to sell their shares in the business after purchasing the Chateau Miraval winery in 2008 for an estimated $28.3 million. But Brad claimed that Angelina had sold her a portion of their French property in his lawsuit against her. According to the story, on July 22, Angelina’s legal team sent subpoenas on Brad, his firm, and his business manager for papers.

The Stoli Group, a Luxembourg-based spirits firm run by the Russian businessman Yuri Shefler, was the recipient of the ex-half wife’s of the French estate, according to earlier 2022 reports. Brad was reportedly fighting his ex-wife for the sale. The large 405-hectare French estate is supposedly home to swimming pools and a helicopter pad in addition to its well-known wines; it was also the location of Angelina and Brad’s wedding there in 2014.

According to a Page Six article, a judge in Los Angeles ordered Brad and his partners to hand over records to Angelina Jolie’s team, despite Brad’s camp’s tenacious efforts to have the courts reject Angelina Jolie’s request for any paperwork and contact. The judge decided that Brad and his legal counsel cannot wait until the outcome of their appeal, even if they so desired. According to the article, Brad turned down a Stoli Group bid to purchase the estate even though he and Angelina were still legally wed.

In 2016, Angelina sought a divorce from Brad. She disclosed to her ex-husband that in January 2021, she sold a portion of their French winery to the Russian oligarch. According to Brad’s complaint against Angelina, “She sold her stock with the knowledge and intention that Shefler and his affiliates would endeavor to dominate the business to which Putt had committed himself and to undermine Pitt’s investment in Miraval.”

While filming Mr. and Mrs. Smith in 2003, the couple got together. Although Angelina and Brad have been divorced for more than five years, their child custody battle over Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox is still in progress. Before she started dating Brad, Angelina adopted two of their kids: Maddox and Zahara. Brad eventually adopted both of them as well. From 2006 through 2008, their other children were born.
