Angelina Jolie is reportedly using a lawsuit to claim that Brad Pitt is the “mastermind” of a plan to simultaneously seize “control” of the winery.
The 47-year-old actress has responded to her former actor’s lawsuit over the sale of her Chateau Miraval stake, alleging that he waged a “vengeance war” against him after her 2016 divorce.
Angelina’s business Novel is seeking more than $250 million (£217 million) in damages, the papers clearly state.
People say the document says: “These counterclaims reveal the true nature of Pitt’s serious misconduct. To be clear, it is Pitt, not Jolie, Novell or any other defendant, who engages in hostile, destructive, and unkind behavior.” indulged.” Legally. Pitt’s conduct caused serious harm to Novell.
Angelina’s lawyers claim Brad, 58, hatched a so far successful plan to gain control of “Chateau Miraval in southern France”, in which the couple bought a controlling stake.
The papers alleged that Brad has now “froze Chateau Miraval to Novella and treats it as his personal fiefdom”, and has reportedly “wasted his wealth on meaningless projects”. . Millions have been spent on it, including over $1 million (£). 870,000) on the renovation of the swimming pool, and more funds to restore the recording studio.
The legal filing reportedly claims that Angelina, 47, who shares six children with Brad, negotiated with the “Fight Club” actor for months to sell him half of her winery, but states that she called for “Eleventh Hour hardship and irreconcilable terms, including a provision made to prohibit Jolie from speaking publicly about the events that led to the breakdown of their marriage.”
According to the filing, Angelina was unwilling to agree to the “hush” clause and sold her stake to Tenute del Mondo, a subsidiary of Stoli Group, in October 2021.
In his own lawsuit in June, Brad accused Angelina of damaging the reputation of the wine business and selling her to a “stranger.”
His legal team documents that the winery became his passion project, becoming “a multimillion-dollar global business and one of the world’s most highly respected producers of rosé wines.”
The actor also claimed that Angelina contributed “nothing” to Miraval’s success.
But a new filing from Angelina’s legal team accuses Brad of “gaslighting.”
“By claiming that he is aggrieved for intentionally causing harm to his ex-wife (putting her out of business and that a significant portion of her net worth is mortgaged) and business (seizing property and reckless expenses).”
It goes on: “But Pitt should look in the mirror because it is he, not the Stoli Group, that carries the freight, some of this recent front-page news that is damaging to Chateau Miraval’s business.”
