Angelina Jolie says Brad Pitt lied in winery-sale lawsuit

Angelina Jolie is asking ex-husband Brad Pitt a liar referring to their settlement — or lack thereof — regarding the sale of Chateau Miraval and its winery.

The allegation obtained here in a cross-criticism filed Tuesday in la Superior courtroom. In it, Jolie’s authorized staff argued that the couple had no settlement by any means regarding every facet consenting to the sale of both event’s curiosity inside the property.

“Pitt alleges that when Jolie and Pitt first purchased their household dwelling, Chateau Miraval, in 2008, the couple ‘impliedly’ agreed they might by no means promote their respective pursuits inside the chateau with out the fully different’s consent. That premise is faux,” Jolie’s cross-criticism states.

(Pitt sued Jolie in February partly for “breach of implied-in-actuality contract,” “breach of quasi-contract pleaded inside the selection” and “breach of implied covenant of large religion and honest dealing.”)

“Pitt provides no clarification for why this critically important proper was by no means talked about or lowered to writing,” the doc says. “He by no means explains precisely how or when this secret, unstated settlement was reached. Nor does he clarify why he and Jolie by no means informed anyone about it — not their advisors, enterprise companions, accountants, the press, and even their legal professionals — nobody. the actuality is that there might even be not a such secret settlement.”

The submitting notes that buy of Chateau Miraval was “meticulously documented by counsel from at the very least three international areas” as a consequence of difficult possession earlier than Pitt and Jolie took over.

Then it quotes Pitt’s enterprise supervisor, Warren Grant, as writing, “Early inside the approach I raised the difficulty of a buy / promote settlement between A & B however was informed by Brad it wasn’t obligatory for two affordable people to have such an settlement.”

the two former spouses have been faraway from “affordable,” apparently, by October 2021, when Pitt found that Jolie had provided her half of Miraval to a subsidiary of Stoli Group, the conglomerate owned by Russian ex-pat vodka billionaire Yuri Shefler.

Pitt alleged in his February lawsuit that as a outcome of the sale, his agency and Shefler’s have been unable to agree on the administration and strategic route of the agency that runs Chateau Miraval. He additionally complained that he might not take pleasure in his private residence as a outcome of it was now co-owned by strangers.

the mannequin new doc notes that “Jolie did current to promote her curiosity in Chateau Miraval to Pitt, however in change for his buy, Pitt demanded she signal a nondisclosure settlement that will have contractually prohibited her from talking outdoors of courtroom about Pitt’s bodily and emotional abuse of her and their youngsters. Jolie refused to conform to such a provision, and Pitt walked away from the deal.”

Jolie’s cross-criticism additionally reiterates basically the identical allegations of home abuse that have been revealed in August after she filed a Freedom of knowledge Act lawsuit in opposition to the FBI.

It was unattainable to inform whether or not the closely redacted FBI doc that emerged inside the case included the cross-criticism’s allegations that “Pitt choked one in all many youngsters and struck one other inside the face” all by way of a worldwide flight from Chateau Miraval in France to the us.

Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt six days after that flight and its alleged altercations. The FBI and la County’s division of baby and household providers investigated allegations of a bodily altercation between Pitt and son Maddox, who was 15 on the time. Neither agency adopted up with expenses.

The couple, who met on the set of the 2005 film “Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” acquired the Chateau Miraval property years earlier than getting married there in 2014. although the two turned legally single in 2019, their contentious divorce proceedings are ongoing.
