Angelina Jolie defeated Brad Pitt in court over their common French winery Chateau Miraval. This was reported by Page Six.
Thus, in February, it became known that Pitt accused Jolie of selling a share of their wine business to Russian businessman and owner of a large producer of alcoholic beverages SPI Group, Yuri Shefler. Pitt sued the actress to void the deal. During the last meeting, Jolie's representatives demanded that Brad Pitt provide the court with documents that would prove the illegality of the sale of her half of the winery.
The Los Angeles Court ruled in favor of Jolie.
As noted Page Six source, Pitt was offended by Jolie.
Any reasonable person would be happy if the SPI Group became his business partner. They have first-class marketing and distribution. He simply cannot see beyond his hatred of Jolie.
Pitt and Jolie bought the estate of Chateau Miraval, on whose territory the vineyards are located, in 2008.
As noted by representatives of Pitt, the winery has become real passion of the actor and turned into a “multi-million dollar business” thanks to his efforts. At the same time, Jolie did nothing for the success of the project. In addition, Pitt said that he and Jolie had an agreement not to sell their shares in the business without mutual consent, but Angelina violated this agreement.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie broke up in 2016, while officially they divorced only in 2019.
