Angelina Jolie has an actual downside together with her ex-husband Brad Pitt. She can not seem to cease submitting lawsuits in opposition to him or doing different seemingly vindictive issues to delay the ultimate division of their shared property. For my part, she will not let him simply stay and transfer on in peace.
As a refresher, Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt in August 2016. On the time she requested full custody of their six kids. Final summer season, 5 full years after the divorce papers had been filed, the couple had but to settle their variations or custody settlement. There was a second the place issues appeared calm and settled, however Jolie simply threw a wrench again into the system.
Angelina is now reportedly inflicting bother with the 1,000-acre property and winery the previous couple owns collectively in France.
Generally known as Chateau Miraval, the couple initially leased the property in 2008 with an choice to purchase. They in the end exercised that choice. In response to current courtroom filings, the chateau is price round $164 million USD.
Brad and Angelina married at Chateau Miraval in 2014. At the moment they’re every 50% house owners of the property, however that wasn’t at all times the case.
In response to the courtroom filings, once they first leased the property in 2008 (with the choice to purchase), Brad owned 60% via his firm, Mondo Bongo and Angelina owned 40% via her firm, Nouvel.
In 2013, Pitt offered 10% of his stake to Jolie for one Euro, making them equal house owners. That one Euro transaction is definitely making their present dispute additional difficult. In response to native legal guidelines, that acquisition is arguably not legitimate as a result of the shares weren’t offered for a authentic quantity. In principle, that makes Pitt the bulk proprietor of the chateau.
Quick ahead to the current.
In response to courtroom paperwork filed in Luxembourg. Mondo Bongo is suing Nouvel. The lawsuit alleges that Jolie (by way of Nouvel) is making an attempt to promote her shares, presumably for round $80 million, with out consulting Pitt or giving his firm his assured proper of first refusal.
The lawsuit additionally alleges that Jolie’s firm, Nouvel, has thrown roadblock after roadblock up over time regarding the enterprise of the chateau, akin to delaying the approval of annual working budgets and the property supervisor’s wage.
That is simply the newest authorized difficulty within the five-year battle within the courts for the previous couple. A couple of months in the past Pitt was lastly awarded joint custody of their 5 minor-aged kids and Jolie vowed to struggle that call with “every thing she has.”
The 1,000 acre Chateau Miraval boasts a personal winery and a mansion with 35 bedrooms. So it is positively price combating over.
