The stunning estate, Château Miraval winery, where Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt got married, became a legal battleground between the once most-beloved couple in Hollywood. Last year, the emotional war over the lucrative winery saw light as Angelina Jolie sought a favorable judgment against her ex-husband.
After Angelina Jolie sold her 50% stake to Russian liquor giant Stoli following her split from Pitt, the Fight Club actor mounted Jolie with a typical lawsuit in February 2022, claiming he was unaware of her decision. After the unfavorable court’s order last year, Brad Pitt has now accused the Oscar-winning star of secretly selling her share of the estate without his consent.
Legal Twist: Brad Pitt Files An Amended Complaint Against ‘Vindictive’ Angelina Jolie
Brad Pitt isn’t letting his guard down as the Fury actor recently filed an amended complaint against his ex-wife, claiming that the “vindictive” Angelina Jolie “secretly” plotted to sell her share of their French estate, Château Miraval, to get back at him amid their nasty custody battle over their six children.
Per explosive legal documents obtained by Page Six, the actor claims that he and Jolie were obliged to “never sell their share” in the $167 million estate (their property share was worth around $30 million) without the other person’s consent. Fans came to Jolie’s rescue, accusing “narcissist” Pitt of paying more focus on the winery than the custody battle.
Here are some reactions from fans over Pitt’s recent legal stunt:

Oh, poor Brad, he’s so nice! He just wants to continue addicting people to alcohol in peace and fighting for this winery like his life depends on it.
It’s interesting how he fights more for this winery than for custody of his children. pic.twitter.com/7C5iLRkdNc

The Maleficent actress sold her 50% stake to Russian liquor giant, Stoli in 2016 following her heartbreaking split from Brad Pitt. The actor has continued to toil over the 12,000-acre estate ever since.
Angelina Jolie And Brad Pitt Tied The Knot At Château Miraval Winery
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, who have been consumed in multiple legal battles against each other, tied the knot at the Château Miraval winery in 2014. The intimate ceremony took place in the presence of their six, children, Zahara, Pax, Shiloh, Maddox, and twins Vivienne and Knox.
After their dramatic split in 2016, the Bullet Train actor accused his Oscar-winning ex-wife of “inflicting harm” on him, after she sold her 50% share. Last year, a source close to Jolie claimed that Pitt was letting his anger over their vicious split come in the way of common business sense, stating:
“Any rational human being would be happy for Stoli to [be a partner in their business. They have top-notch marketing and distribution, and the firm offers huge opportunities to grow the business. He just can’t see past his hatred of Jolie.”
After Angelina Jolie’s legal team subpoenaed documents from Pitt, a Los Angeles judge passed a favorable verdict in July 2022, ordering Pitt and his partners to “pass on the papers” and “correspondence to the opposing lawyers” and that “they cannot hold off until they appeal the decision.” The amended complaint has come as a game-changer in the ongoing legal battle.
