An action for $250 million has been brought against Brad Pitt by a business that Angelina Jolie created. The couple’s French winery, which they jointly purchased, is the subject of the litigation. Angelina won the case when a judge in Los Angeles ruled in July that Brad and his associates must hand over records to her team. After Angelina having prevailed in the court in July, the current case comes as a surprise.
Brad Pitt started a campaign to “seize control” of the French vineyard
The latest lawsuit alleges that in punishment for the divorce and custody battles, Brad started a campaign to “seize control” of the French vineyard that they jointly purchased and to “guarantee… Jolie would never see a dollar” of the winery’s earnings. The court documents were submitted on Tuesday in Los Angeles, according to a Page Six article. It stated that each of Angelina and Brad owned 50% of the 1,300-acre estate in the South of France after they jointly spent tens of millions of dollars improving it after purchasing it in 2008. The paper also disclosed that the winery was where “most of Angelina’s personal wealth” was invested.
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.
The couple got together in 2003
While they were filming Mr. and Mrs. Smith, the couple got together in 2003. 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 later adopted both of them as well. From 2006 through 2008, their other children were born.
