Legally, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are single. On April 13, 2019, Almost three years after Jolie filed for divorce for the first time, she and Pitt were declared legally single by a judge. Former spouses were in the process of finalizing their divorce agreement.
Angelina Jolie has prevailed in a legal spat with ex-husband Brad Pitt over the winery Chateau Miraval. Angelina surprisingly sold her fifty percent stake to Russian oligarch Yuri Shefler, who owns the Russian vodka Stolichnaya, amidst early conflict over ownership between the actors (also known as Stoli). The transaction resulted in a number of lawsuits in several nations, including one from Brad himself, who sued the Lara Croft: Tom Raider actress for the move, saying that he was unaware of her intentions.
Friday, July 22, Angelina's legal team subpoenaed records from Brad, 58, as well as his company Mondo Bongo and his business manager, reported Page Six. A Los Angeles judge has ruled that Brad and his partners must hand over information to Angelina's team, despite Brad's legal team's desire to refuse Angelina and her team's request for all correspondence and documentation. Even if Brad and his legal team wished to appeal, the judge ruled that they must turn over all evidence immediately, regardless of the outcome of the case. HollywoodLife has contacted Brad's representative for comment.
The pair paid $28.4 million in 2008 for the winery, which is renowned for its world-class rosé. In the presence of their children Maddox, 21, Zahara, 17, Pax, 18, Shiloh, 16, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 14, they subsequently exchanged vows in 2014 on the expansive property.
According to documents obtained by HollywoodLife, Brad previously accused his Oscar-winning ex-wife of “inflicting harm” on him after she sold her 50% share. Notable is the winery's current value of $167 Million. “Jolie finalized the alleged deal without Pitt's knowledge, so denying Pitt the consent right she owed him and the right of the first refusal her corporate entity owed his,” according to historical papers. “She sold her shares with the knowledge and intent that Shefler and his affiliates would endeavor to control the business to which Pitt had devoted himself and to undermine Pitt's investment in Miraval,” the sentence reads.
The winery has been a source of conflict in the couple's ongoing 2016 separation. Although they tied the knot in 2015, they began dating around 2005.
