- Angelina Jolie sold winery she and Brad Pitt share
- Pitt claims Jolie did not ask for his approval
- Jolie faces new lawsuit from Pitt as a result
Angelina Jolie has found herself in legal trouble with Brad Pitt once again! As Entertainment Tonight reports, Jolie is getting sued by her ex-husband for making a business decision without his approval, despite the fact his name is attached to it.
Pitt claims "mutual understanding" with Jolie over company
Jolie and Pitt may have gotten divorced, but the stars are still co-owners of Chateau Miraval Winery. However, new court documents reveal Jolie has sold the French company to Yuri Shefler, a Russian oligarch. Pitt is attempting to take legal action to stop this sale from being valid and wants financial compensation.
The actor made several claims regarding his involvement in the business. While he acknowledged that Jolie contributed just under half of the original purchase cost, he stated that the business's success was his doing. Pitt also asserted that he and Jolie had a "mutual understanding" when it came to how the winery's sale would be handled, which is why he was reportedly "shocked" a deal was made without his approval.
Jolie and Pitt have been involved in a lengthy custody battle for some time now. While Pitt was awarded joint custody of the couple's five young children in 2021, the court refused to hear his appeal of a ruling later in the year. This new lawsuit against Jolie complicates what is an already messy legal situation, so hopefully they will be able to reach an agreement soon!
