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.

It says the lawsuit suggests Miraval is owned by Quimicum – which both Pitt and Jolie have a 50 per cent take in through their companies Mondo Bongo and Nouvel respectively.

The suit reportedly alleges that Jolie is attempting to flog her 50 per cent stake while circumventing Pitt’s right of first refusal. It allegedly claims she is attempting to profit from the “incredible amount of work, time and money” invested by Pitt and his business partners.

The papers alleged say: “We understand that behind this systematic obstruction, the real purpose of Nouvel and its shareholder [Jolie] is to sell its stake in Chateau Miraval SA in a way that would circumvent Mondo Bongo’s right of first refusal (as provided in Quimicum’s articles of approval), taking, as a result, a capital gain raised thanks to Mondo Bongo’s investment and to which Nouvel did not contribute.”

The representatives of both Pitt and Jolie have been contacted for comment.

The actress filed for divorce in 2016 and the former Hollywood golden couple, who share six children, have been wrangling in legal proceedings concerning their separation in California largely shielded from public view.

Pitt, 57, was accused of being abusive toward his then-15-year-old son Maddox during the flight, but investigations by child welfare officials and the FBI were closed with no charges being filed.

Jolie, 46, made the allegation in an interview with The Guardian promoting her new book, Know Your Rights And Claim Them, which aims to equip children with the knowledge to challenge injustices.
