Hollywood ex-couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie continue to fight over their estate and other divorce details. Indeed, things are getting messier. Brad accused the marvel actress of attempting to ‘inflict harm’ against him.
As per the latest court documents, she secretly tried selling her stake in his French vineyard to a ‘Russian oligarch’ with ‘poisonous intentions’. Said supposed malicious intentions allegedly include a plan to take complete control of their multi-million dollar Chateau Miraval winery.
The actress Angelina Jolie sold half of the business to a company run by Yuri Shefler. He is the owner of a Russian company which makes Vodka Stolichnaya, the brand name changed to Stoli. It is also revealed that since Yuri has made an attempt to distance himself from Russian President, Vladimir Putin and his regime, the Stoli brand is now an ‘international liability’.
“Jolie pursued and then consummated the purported sale in secret, purposely keeping Pitt in the dark. And knowingly violating Pitt’s contractual rights,” Brad’s attorneys claim in the documents, citing Angelina’s sale to the Stoli Group through Yuri. “By doing so, Jolie sought to seize profits she had not earned and returns on an investment she did not make. Also through the purported sale, Jolie sought to inflict harm on Pitt,” the documents claim.
“Jolie knew and intended that Shefler and his affiliates would try to control the business Pitt had built and to undermine Pitt’s investment in Miraval,” the statement continue. “And just as Jolie envisioned, that is exactly what Shefler has done.”
“In violation of the parties’ agreement, Jolie has sought to force Pitt into partnership with a stranger. And worse yet, a stranger with poisonous associations and intentions,” the docs continue. Also, claiming the sale violates an agreement the couple made at the start of their partnership in the 1000-acre estate which they bought in 2008. The agreement gave Brad first refusal to buy her stake if she wanted to sell, the judge was notified.
Brad and Angelina Stiff On Children’s Custody
Indeed Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were amazingly together for years before they tied the knot. But unfortunately, the star couple two years after they walked down the aisle. They announced their separation in September 2016. While they were declared legally single in April 2019, the ex-power couple is still battling a messy court case regarding the custody of their children. The Hollywood couple has Pax (17), Zahara (16), Shiloh (15), and twins Knox and Vivienne (13).
Brad Pitt found himself asking the California Supreme Court to review his ongoing custody battle with ex-wife Angelina Jolie. And again he found himself hitting a roadblock. In September, Brad’s attorneys petitioned the high court to review the case after Judge John Ouderkirk taken off the case.
