Famous actor Brad Pitt has decided to legally prosecute his ex-wife, Angelina Jolie, accusing her of illegally selling part of their French property Chateau Miraval.
The former couple bought the property in 2008 for $28.4 million, intending to raise their children there and build a family wine business.
Brad Pitt sues Angelina Jolie for treason: She sold part of the castle in France where they got married
Actress Angelina Jolie signed a contract with businessman Yuri Scheffler and sold him some of her impressive property at an affordable price. Brad Pitt is now in serious trouble, having earned a considerable amount of wine from the property.
Brad Pitt states that they agreed that none of them would sell their part of the castle in which they got married in 2014, as well as his profitable vineyard without the consent of the other party.
According to foreign media, the lawsuit claims that, although the vineyard became “Pitt’s passion”, Jolie carelessly, without his permission, decided to sell her share to Russian businessman Yuri Scheffler.
The court documents, submitted to the Los Angeles High Court, read:
“Jolie made the alleged sale without Pitt’s knowledge, denying her ex-husband the right to agree to owe him, as well as the right of the first refusal owed to her by her business. She sold her share knowing that businessman Scheffler and his affiliates would try to control the business to which Pitt was committed. The Miraval estate is located in the village of Corens in the Provence-Alpes-Cзуte d’Azur region of southeastern France. The 35-room villa is lush with lush gardens, fountains, aqueducts, a pond, a chapel and a vineyard in which Pitt says he has invested large sums of money.”
