Brad Pitt Alleges Angelina Jolie Wanted to ‘Inflict Harm’ on Him by Selling Winery Stake to Russian Oligarch

Brad Pitt has accused his ex-girlfriend of attempting to “do harm” to him and their winery, Chateau Miraval. According to new legal documents filed in Los Angeles on Friday, Pitt’s lawyers claim Angelina Jolie sold her share in their vineyard to Russian billionaire Yuri Shefler in an attempt to impair Pitt’s involvement in the company.

Pitt first sued Jolie in February over the sale of her Miraval stock, seeking monetary damages, legal fees, and the cancellation of Jolie’s Miraval sale to Shefler.

According to the latest documents, Pitt’s lawyers believe that “Jolie wanted to hurt Pitt” and that she “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.”

“Under Pitt’s guidance, the vineyard became Pitt’s passion — and a profitable one,” according to the documents, “as Miraval has blossomed into a multibillion-dollar global enterprise and one of the world’s most well-acclaimed makers of rosé wine.” “Meanwhile, Jolie had no part in Miraval’s success. Instead, she allowed Pitt to put money and sweat equity in the company since she gave him a consent right and the corporation owed him a right of first refusal.”

According to the new documents, Shefler, the owner of SPI Group, an international alcohol sales consortium, is accused of “launching a hostile takeover of the wine business, destabilizing Miraval’s operations, and attempting to obtain Miraval’s confidential and proprietary information for the benefit of his competing enterprise.”

According to the documents, Jolie “has attempted to force Pitt into a partnership with a stranger, and worse yet, a stranger with poisonous associations and intentions,” in violation of the parties’ agreement. Shefler also “maintains personal and professional relationships with individuals in Vladimir Putin’s inner circle,” according to the documents.

“Pitt has built a thriving family-owned firm via significant financial commitment and years of sweat equity. Since 2008, the value of Miraval has risen considerably, and it is currently worth hundreds of millions of dollars “The doctors state their case. “In the meantime, Jolie has not visited Miraval since filing for divorce in 2016.”

“Jolie sought and then finalized the purported transaction in secret, purposely keeping Pitt in the dark, and willfully violating Pitt’s contractual rights,” according to the lawsuit.

According to Pitt’s February complaint, the couple had a “mutual agreement” that neither of them may sell their share of the vineyard without the other’s consent under the terms of their divorce, which was finalized in 2019.

Jolie informed the judge in July that she had struck an arrangement to sell her shareholding to an unidentified person, which Pitt agreed to consider in September. Pitt, on the other hand, says that their “common agreement” gave him the right of first refusal, something he claims was not offered to him by Jolie.

According to the documents, Pitt was caught aback when he discovered in October that a firm called Tenute del Mondo — a subsidiary of Shefler’s vodka company Stoli Group — had bought her winery share.

ET has reached out to Angelina Jolie’s agents for comment.
