Brad Pitt SUES Angelina Jolie: She Ruined My Wine Company!

Recent for many Johnny Depp-Amber Heard Lawsuit recalled another high-profile legal war that pitted (no word) A-list ex against each other.

When Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie parted ways in 2016, allegations were made of exploitation and defamation similar to the Depp-Heard resignation.

Of course, Pitt and Jolie were able to handle things much more quietly, possibly because they had six children under guard.

Now, the actors may have to go back to court when Pitt filed a surprising lawsuit against his ex.

By court documents obtained People magazine, Pitt sues Jolie for selling his stake in the Chateau Miraval wine brand, which the two bought during their marriage.

Pitt claims Jolie “tried to cause harm” to him by selling his stake in the company.

In documents filed on Friday, Pitt claims that Miraval became his “passion project,” which grew through his efforts into “a multi-million dollar global business and one of the world’s most respected rosé wine producers.”

He accuses Joli of not contributing to Miraval’s success.

Pitt claims Jolie essentially stole the company from his subordinate by selling his stake to Tenute del Mondo, which has “wanted to take control of Miraval” and is “indirectly owned and controlled by Russian billionaire Yuri Shefler, who controls the Stoli group.”

“Jolie continued the alleged sale and then carried it out in secret, deliberately obscuring Pitti and knowingly violating Pitti’s contract rights,” the lawsuit says.

Pitt claims Jolie owed him a pre-emptive right when he decided to put his stake in the business up for sale.

He claims the deal allowed Shefler to obtain “confidential and proprietary information for the benefit of its competing company.”

In his application, Pitt accuses Shefler of “smart business tactics and questionable unions.”

The actor’s lawyers argue that the deal “threatens the reputation of such a carefully constructed Pitt brand”.

They claim that Angelina knew what she was doing when she made the contract and wrote:

“Jolie has tried to force Pit into a partnership with a stranger, and worse, with a stranger with toxic associations and intentions.”

Brad is asking for a jury trial, and the situation can get very confusing, especially since Pitt and Jolie haven’t finished their divorce yet.

Pitt survived in 2016 after resigning from Joli.

So his affection for the wine company is all the more surprising – after all, it’s not like a guy needs money.

Many wonder if there is more to it than just the controversy surrounding the once-joint venture.

Was it inspiring Pitti to take legal action against his ex for Depp’s victory over Heard?

In any case, it looks like 2016’s most shocking celebrity resignation is returning to the headlines.

We will update this development story further as more information becomes available.
