‘Pitt’s hubris got the better of him’: Angelina Jolie’s Company Alleges Brad Pitt Made ‘Unreasonable 11th hour demands’ To Spite Jolie Because He Knew She Was Out Of Money

Angelina Jolie’s company has filed a $250 million lawsuit against her ex-husband, Brad Pitt, claiming that he tried to “seize control” of the French winery that they bought when they were together “in retaliation for the divorce and custody proceedings” and to “ensure that Angelina Jolie would never see a dime” of its profits. Her company also claimed that after their divorce, the actor spent millions of the company’s money on “vanity projects,” including a swimming pool that cost more than a million dollars. The two bought the 1,300-acre estate in the South of France in 2008 and invested tens of millions of dollars jointly to maintain it. The actress recently sold her stake to liquor giant Stoli.

The papers accused Brad Pitt of trying to “seize control” of the French winery “in retaliation for the divorce and custody proceedings.” The document reads,

“In retaliation for the divorce and custody proceedings, Pitt embarked on a multi-faceted, years-long campaign to seize control of Chateau Miraval and appropriate the company’s assets for his benefit and that of his own companies and friends. Appointing himself the rightful owner of Chateau Miraval, his twin objectives were to usurp the value of Jolie’s company, Nouvel, and to obtain sole ownership of Chateau Miraval.”

The company also accused the Fight Club star of operating the winery without consulting Angelina Jolie. They claim that whenever she tried to get information and more control, he “rebuffed” her and tried to “block Jolie and Nouvel from obtaining information about or managing Chateau Miraval.

The lawsuit also claims that even though Angelina Jolie was never obligated to sell her stake to Brad Pitt, she still offered to “sell her interest to him and negotiated with him for months.” The document says,

“Pitt’s hubris got the better of him: he made an eleventh-hour demand for onerous and irrelevant conditions, including a provision designed to prohibit Jolie from publicly speaking about the events that had led to the breakdown of their marriage. Pitt knew that much of Jolie’s wealth and liquidity were tied up in [her stake in the winery] and used that fact to try to force Jolie to agree to his unreasonable terms.”

The couple bought the estate in 2008, three years after they began dating. They even got married at the property in 2014.
