Brad Pitt ‘in new legal suit against Angelina Jolie over French vineyard’

According to DailyMail.com, new court papers accuse Jolie of trying to remove Pitt from a deal to sell her shares in the former couple’s French property and vineyard, Chateau Miraval.

The website says the court papers were filed in Luxembourg on Tuesday in regard to the property in Correns, France.
