Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are in the news again, this time for their never-ending legal fights. The Couple of Hollywood was a couple that met on the set of the film Mr. and Mrs. Smith. No one expected their legal battle to last this long when the news of their divorce hit the media. Shiloh, Vivienne, Maddox, Knox, Zahara, and Pax are Pitt and Jolie’s six children. Following their divorce, a lengthy custody struggle for their five children erupted.
After last month’s court judgement removing private judge John Ouderkirk from the case. The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood actor filed a petition with the California Supreme Court to examine the custody issue. He further claimed that after their private judge was removed, Jolie was unfairly handed complete custody of their five minor children.
Now, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie find themselves still at odds over their lavish estate they co-own in France. As per some reports, Pitt’s company Mondo Bongo has sued Jolie’s company, Nouvel, claiming that she tried to cut him out of a lucrative deal to offload her shares in Chateau Miraval.
As per the report, the complaint accuses Angelina Jolie of attempting to offload her 50% share in the 1,000-acre, $164 million Chateau Miraval in Correns, France without allegedly allowing Brad Pitt, the first option to buy her out. For those unaware, Quimicum owns and controls Chateau Miraval, the former couple’s estate and winery, which is reportedly worth $164 million. It was also the same place where Pitt and Jolie tied the knot in 2014.
According to Page Six, as part of their initial agreement, Brad and Angelina had agreed to ask each other for permission if they ever wanted to sell their shares for the estate. Pitt’s company has accused Jolie of trying to sell her shares without giving Pitt the right of first refusal.
Angelina Jolie also recently opened up about her divorce from Brad Pitt. She gave an insight into the split while talking to The Guardian and mentioned it arising out of the fear for her children’s safety. She also called it a tough decision and said, “I’m not the kind of person who makes decisions like the decisions I had to make lightly. It took a lot for me to be in a position where I felt I had to separate from the father of my children.”
