Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt on the case of the French winery explained while winning the battle

Jolie won a court dispute over the Chateau Miraval vineyard between Angelina Jolie and her ex-husband Brad Pitt. While the original drama included determining ownership between the actresses, Angelina unexpectedly sold 50% of her to Russian oligarch Yuri Shefler, owner of Russian Stolichnaya (also known as Stoli) vodka. Other lawsuits were filed in the wake of the sale in numerous countries, including one from Brad himself, who accused the Lara Croft: Tom Raider actress of acting without her knowledge.

According to Page Six, Brad, 58, as well as his Mondo Bongo company and business manager, received subpoenas from Angelina’s legal team on Friday, July 22. Despite Brad’s legal team’s appeal for the courts to dismiss Angelina and his team’s request for correspondence or records, a Los Angeles judge ruled that Brad and his associates must turn over the documents to Angelina’s team. The judge decided that Brad and his legal team couldn’t wait for the appeal ruling and that everything must be revealed, even if they wanted to appeal. HollywoodLife has contacted Brad’s agent for a response.

In 2008, the couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt bought the winery

For $28.4 million, the couple purchased the world-class rosé-producing winery in 2008. They later married there in 2014 in front of their children Maddox, 21, Zahara, 17, Pax, 18, Shiloh, 16, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 14, as well as other family members.

According to paperwork obtained by HollywoodLife, Brad previously accused his former Oscar winner of “causing him harm” after she sold her 50% stake. In particular, the current value of the warehouse is $167 million. Previous records indicated that Jolie concluded the alleged deal without Pitt’s knowledge, violating Pitt’s right of consent that she owed him and the right of first refusal that her corporate entity owed him.

He sold his stake knowing that Shefler and his associates would try to take over the company in which Pitt had invested and damage Pitt’s stake in Miraval, according to the report.

The couple’s ongoing split, which began in 2016, has involved the winery as a point of contention. Despite getting married in 2015, the couple started dating in 2005.
