Brad Pitt Is Being Sued Over Winery Drama Months After He Sued Angelina Jolie

ytsfreeSeptember 7, 2022

On top of the ever-complex and ever-ongoing divorce of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, the battle over their vineyard has become an even bigger part of the story. The two actors have been in the midst of a divorce since 2016, with the major points of contention being the custody of their children and the splitting of their assets, including the vineyard. After Pitt sued Jolie when she was trying to sell her shares of the winery earlier this year, Jolie’s company Nouvel is now suing Pitt for $250 million over the same property. 

The lawsuit Jolie’s company filed claims that Pitt was trying to “seize control” over the winery and is making it so “Jolie would never see a dime” of its profits. Since Jolie has a huge financial stake in the property, the suit claims that Pitt was trying to use said stake to force her into signing a “hush-clause.” This hush-clause was allegedly trying to silence Jolie from discussing why they got divorced and that Pitt spent millions of the vineyard’s money on “vanity projects.” A portion of the filing says (via Page Six): 

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.
