Apart from their current custody struggle, it now appears as though Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s wine vineyard may be added to their legal battles—which can only indicate their divorce is about to become considerably worse.
Brad and Angelina have apparently rekindled their spat over Château Miraval, a $164 million vineyard in Correns, France, that they jointly control.
This time, Brad, 57, sued Angelina, 46, on Tuesday, September 21, accusing her of attempting to sell her stake in their estate without first consulting him—a move that could ultimately result in a massive profit at the expense of the actor, according to court documents obtained by Hollywood Life.
According to public records, Quimicum owns Château Miraval, a company in which Angelina previously held a 40% share through her company, Nouvel. Brad, for his part, once owned 60% of the estate through his company, Mondo Bongo. Prior to their 2016 divorce, Brad moved 10% of the estate from his firm to Angelina’s Nouvel, ensuring that they are now equal shareholders.
Angelina allegedly intended to sell her whole 50% ownership in Château Miraval without allowing Brad to object or buy her out first, according to court documents obtained by Hollywood Life. According to Page Six sources, this contradicts what the former couple purportedly agreed upon before their 2016 divorce, who stated that the two previously agreed to contact one another before selling their shares.

“It is worth mentioning that, for the last four years, Nouvel did not act in the best interest of Quimicum by systematically delaying the approval of the annual accounts and the renewal of the manager,” court filings stated. Angelina is accused of “systematic obstruction” in the suit. Brad’s attorneys also allege that Angelina did not act in the “best interest” of the company that owns Château Miraval.
Additionally, a source familiar with the matter described Angelina’s conduct as “consistently vindictive” and “another example of this person trying to circumvent the rules.” According to the source, “This is pretty consistent with this person’s behavior and is why she has been deemed ‘not credible’ based on the testimony of numerous experts, medical professionals, therapists and others who know her best in the recent ruling of the custodial case.”
