You did not give him pure wine: Brad Pitt (58) sued Angelina Jolie (47) in February 2022 because his ex-wife had secretly sold and allegedly illegally sold her stake in French winery Château Miraval. According to the Daily Mail, Pitt’s lawyers have now submitted documents alleging bad intent in selling Jolie.
It is said that Angelina Jolie was motivated solely by the desire to “hurt Brad Pitt”. Because Jupiter Yuri Scheffler (54 years old) is a “Russian oligarch with bad intentions.” According to court documents obtained by the British newspaper, Scheffler is said to be plotting to take full control of the multi-million dollar winery and oust Pete. Scheffler owns the SPI Group, which produces and sells alcohol under 380 brands in 170 countries, according to Forbes. The most famous brand is Stolichnaya vodka.
It is said that Angelina Jolie was aware of the offside attempt
According to the lawsuit, Jolie “knew that Schaeffler and his associates would attempt to take over Pitt’s business and undermine his investment in Maraval.” This is exactly what is said to have happened: “Scheffler initiated a hostile takeover of the wine business by destabilizing Marval’s operations and attempting to gain access to Marval’s proprietary and confidential information for its competitor.”
In addition: after “desperate attempts to distance itself from the Putin regime, the Stolichnaya brand is now a huge international responsibility,” says the newspaper, citing Vladimir Putin’s (69th) invasion of Ukraine. “Stolichnaya has been the subject of a worldwide boycott.”
What agreement was reached?
The property is located in Correns in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region in southeastern France. Jolie and Pitt purchased the 35-room home in 2008 for $28.4 million. At that time with the intention of raising their children there and building a family winery.
Brad Pitt has developed his Maraval vineyard into a multi-million dollar company and one of the world’s leading producers of pink wine. The representative claims that they have agreed that neither of them will sell their share in the minors without the consent of the other. However, Jolie sold her shares without his consent.
Brad Pitt claims damages
According to court documents, “Angelina Jolie intentionally concealed the details of the deal and never obtained permission to sell.” The Oscar winner states that Scheffler makes it impossible for him to continue to run the winery efficiently. Pete asks the court to retract the sale and seeks compensation from his ex-wife.
A source close to Pete said, “Jolie broke her legal and ethical standards by selling her to Scheffler. She’s trampling on the rights of the only person who invested his money and put his money into the wine business. She wants to profit from an investment she didn’t make herself.” (cth/bsn)
