A legal battle that has just been relaunched. Remember, Brad Pitt and his wife Angelina Jolie, the most coveted couple in Hollywood, acquired in 2008 the Château de Miraval, a 17th century residence located in the Var. This 500-hectare estate, continued with 50 hectares of vines, later enabled them to produce Miraval Côtes de Provence.

But since their divorce proceedings in 2016, nothing has gone right between the ex-lovers, parents of six children. After their separation, Angelina Jolie finally decided to sell her own shares of the Château de Miraval for her “financial independence”, in order to “find a form of peace and closure to this deeply painful and traumatic chapter of her life and that of her. his children”, we learn from the Parisian. The new buyer is none other than Tenute del Mondo, “a subsidiary of the Stoli group, controlled by the Russian oligarch Yuri Shefler”, explain our colleagues.

A sale that set fire to the powder on the side of comedian Brad Pitt who decided to file a complaint. The latter affirming that during the purchase of this property (whose shares are 60% for Brad Pitt and 40% for Angelina Jolie), they had undertaken not to resell it without their mutual consent.

More than a year after filing the complaint, new documents were filed on June 3, 2023 in a California court by the actor’s lawyers. These documents relayed by CNN report a “vindictive” sale due to another legal battle for the custody of their children. “As the trial will demonstrate, Jolie’s actions were unlawful, grossly and intentionally harming Pitt and unjustly enriching herself,” the document states. The actor therefore requests the cancellation of the sale as well as damages from his ex-wife.
