The continuing conflict between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt over her ability to sell her portion of a French vineyard and estate that they jointly owned appears to be growing more complicated. According to recent court records, Angelina’s legal team has reacted to Pitt’s accusation that she intentionally tried to “inflict injury” by selling her shares.
Brad’s lawsuit is “frivolous, vindictive, and part of a worrying trend,” according to Angelina’s most recent documents, as Just Jared reported through Radar Online. The argument made by Mr. Pitt that he and Ms. Jolie had an unsaid, unwritten agreement to consent right on the sale of their interests in the property is directly at odds with the written evidence, among other legal flaws, and breaches both public policy and the Statute of Frauds, the paper contends.
For the unreversed, the actor from Bullet Train filed a lawsuit against his ex-wife over a contract she struck to sell her stake in Chateau Miraval, a vineyard and estate they bought in 2008 and subsequently tied the knot at. Brad asserted that he should have the authority to approve any deal. In the past, court records have shown that Angelina sought the sale of her interests in the Miraval estate, saying she did so to achieve “financial independence” from Pitt after the tragic 2016 aircraft mishap.
It has been said by Brad Pitt’s team that the former pair promised not to sell their Miraval shares without one another’s approval after Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from him in 2016. At the time of their divorce from Pitt, the actress insisted that she chose the welfare of her family.
