It’s not been long since the document released by the FBI revealed the truth behind the 2016 airplane incident between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. The star couple has been a topic of discussion ever since. Earlier this year, Brad Pitt sued Maleficent actress for selling her stake in a French winery they bought together. They purchased a controlling interest in Chateau Miraval in 2008 and got married at the same yard six years later.
In his filing, Pitt claimed that Jolie decided without his knowledge or consent. The case was resolved in favor of Jolie after ruling that Angelina Jolie did not need his acknowledgment to sell her stake at the winery.

Angelina Jolie’s Company Filed a Lawsuit Against Brad Pitt
Now reports have that Angelina Jolie’s company has filed a new lawsuit against Brad Pitt. According to reports, a company founded by Angelina Jolie has filed a $250 million lawsuit against the Bullet Train actor for taking control of the French winery that he had bought with Angelina Jolie when they were together.
The lawsuit claims that Brad Pitt has launched a campaign to seize control of the French winery with his gang of cronies. The couple bought the French winery together in 2008, at a time when they were still in a relationship.
The French winery was spread over 1300 acres of the estate in the south of France and both of them jointly invested in the winery to improve its condition. The lawsuit claims that Pitt launched the campaign in retaliation for their divorce so that Jolie does not get a single penny out of it.
It also claimed that Brad Pitt forced Angelina Jolie to sign a hush clause to prevent her from talking about the real reason behind their divorce.
Brad Pitt Tried to Take Control of The Winery
The lawsuit includes that Brad Pitt tried to solely control the winery and took over its operations. Whenever Jolie asked him anything about it he rebuffed her and tried to block Angelina Jolie or Nouvel from involving or obtaining information about Chateau Miraval.
The company also mentioned in the lawsuit that the actor was planning to secretly move assets from Chateau Miraval to companies owned by him or his friends.
Brad Pitt also used millions from the company’s money to fund his vanity projects, including a swimming pool worth millions. Chateau Miraval commissioned a single staircase to be rebuilt four times after Pitt did not like it the first three times.
The company also claims that the actor caused Chateau Miraval to spend millions on the reconstruction of stone walls using stone mason from Croatia despite the company and Jolie’s disagreement.

Angelina Jolie Sold her Share in October 2021
Angelina Jolie sold her stakes in Chateau Miraval in October 2021 to Stoli, after Pitt ignored her final offer to sell her stakes in the winery. Stoli offered the same deal to Pitt, where the liquor company offered to put its experience and distribution networks to work for Chateau Miraval, but Brad Pitt refused to work as equal partners.
The lawsuit is filed by Nouvel, a company that Angelina Jolie found to retain her stake in the French winery. Angelina Jolie sold it to liquor giant Stoli. The lawsuit also claims that Brad Pitt continued operating the winery without consulting Angelina Jolie even after they were divorced.
