Angelina Jolie has won a legal battle against ex-husband Brad Pitt involving the Chateau Miraval winery.
When the couple moved into the chateau and assumed control of the famed rosé company in 2008, the intensely emotional conflict between the ex-couples began.
After the couple’s painful breakup in 2016, the 47-year-old Eternals actress suddenly sold her 50% ownership to Russian booze tycoon Stoli.
Brad, his business manager, and Mondo Bongo, his company, had documents subpoenaed by Angelina’s team.
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 Stoli Group, a Luxembourg-based spirits manufacturer owned by the Russian businessman Yuri Shefler, was the recipient of the ex-share wife’s of the French estate, according to earlier 2022 reports.
Brad was reportedly suing his ex-wife for the sale.
In 2016, Angelina sought a divorce from Brad. She disclosed to her ex-husband that in January 2021, she sold a portion of their French winery to the Russian oligarch.
A source close to Brad claims that the Stoli deal is not a no-brainer and that Brad has turned down an offer to sell the company to the business firm even while he was still married to Angelina.
