Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s split is still resulting in more disputes. Jolie revealed images from her marriage-ending fight with Pitt for an FBI investigation. However, the FBI didn’t reopen the sealed case of their big altercation on a plane, and Pitt had to pay $25,000 in damages for it.
Page Six reports that Jolie’s company filed a lawsuit that claims that Brad Pitt essentially seized control of their French winery, Chateau Miraval. The legal nightmare for Pitt demands a massive sum of $250 million.
The lawsuit further adds that Brad Pitt did it to retaliate against Jolie for the divorce. He made sure that her ex-wife from getting to share any of the vast profits that the winery generates.
In retaliation for the divorce and custody proceedings, Pitt embarked on a multi-faceted, years-long campaign to seize control of Chateau Miraval and appropriate the company’s assets for his benefit and that of his own companies and friends. Appointing himself the rightful owner of Chateau Miraval, his twin objectives were to usurp the value of Jolie’s company, Nouvel, and to obtain sole ownership of Chateau Miraval.
Pitt also tried to get her to sign a “hush-clause” by using her stake in the winery in order to stop her from discussing anything about their divorce, the lawsuit adds. The couple reportedly bought the estate together in 2008, and they both spent millions of dollars to improve it. The 1300-acre winery is in the South of France.
The company also accuses Pitt of squandering millions in the company’s money for his “vanity projects.” The legal spillover from their divorce seems to be getting worse and worse. Pitt hasn’t publicly acknowledged the suit yet, but this can get him a lot of negative attention.
