Brad Pitt’s new lawsuit against Angelina Jolie
Cairo – Middle Gate Saturday 19 February 2022, 04:14 pm
Brad Pitt is suing his ex-wife, Angelina Jolie, over the sale of his shares in a vineyard in southern France.
In 2011, after a palace in the town of Wallorenz (in the province of War in southeastern France), the couple formed a partnership with the French flag-raising family Fran to produce the wine “Miravel Cte d’Provence”.
In 2008, according to “AFP”, the two stars acquired 500 hectares of property, including 50 hectares of vineyards.
In 2014, the palace and the land around it hosted Jolie and Pitt’s wedding after many years of relationship, and in 2016 they began the divorce proceedings, which continued and saw lengthy legal battles, especially those related to their custody. Six children.
The latest chapter in the controversy is the lawsuit filed by Brad Pitt in a California court on Thursday evening, alleging that the two stars “did not sell their shares in the Mirage property without the consent of the other party.”
However, last October Angelina Jolie sold her shares to “Luxembourg-based liquor company owned by Russian Yuri Scheffler”, who was previously the head of Russia’s largest vodka exporter and filed a lawsuit with the Russian government in 2002.
Angelina Jolie’s lawyer, Robert Olson, said the actress had not yet been notified of the case and that her representatives had learned of it “through the media”.
“I hope Mr. Pitt is aware that Jolie is currently traveling on an international long-haul flight with her children, and could not be reached for comment and could not be reached for comment,” Olson said in a statement. AFP.
The lawsuit, filed by Agency France-Presse, alleges that the buyer of the shares was “Dinode del Mundo”, a subsidiary of the “Stoly” group owned by Scheffler.
In this case, Brad Pitt accused Angelina Jolie of not coming forward to sell her shares before giving up her shares, accusing her of “prolonging a break from contributing to Miravel” and demanding that the case be heard in arbitration in civil court. A source familiar with the case on Friday accused Angelina Jolie of “trying to recoup an investment she did not make and a profit she did not make”.
In 2008, the couple paid “about 25 million euros” to buy the property, with Brad Pitt contributing 60 percent and Angelina Jolie 40 percent. From their partnership with winemaker Mark Perron in 2011, sales have increased from $ 3 million in 2013 to more than $ 50 million in 2021.
In January 2020, the collaboration expanded to establish a company to produce pink champagne from Miraval Violin crops, which specializes in pink wines, including champagne manufacturer “Peters” in eastern France. He described the deal as “a family affair between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt and their children, Bern and Peters”.
On Friday, in response to a question from Agence France-Presse, the company “Tinote del Mundo” was satisfied with its “investment in Miravel” and described it as “the best wine” and insisted on making this investment. It is “the most popular brand of pink wine and champagne”.
