These two will have to fight it out in court once again.
Pitt claims they pledged that neither of them would sell their portion of the Château — where they married in 2014 — or its lucrative vineyard without the other’s permission. However, although the vineyard became “Pitt’s passion,” Jolie allegedly sold her portion to Russian billionaire Yuri Shefler without his approval, according to the lawsuit.
In legal documents obtained by TMZ, the 58-year-old actor asks the court to overturn a deal Jolie signed that gave her stake to Tenute del Mondo, a Stoli Group company run by Shefler, and to pay him damages for the transaction.
Near the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur area of southern France, the Miraval estate is situated in the hamlet of Correns. The 35-room estate is surrounded by exquisite grounds that include a moat, fountains, aqueducts, a pond, a church, and a vineyard in which Pitt claims to have put a significant sum of money.
“Unfortunately, this is another example of the same person disregarding her legal and ethical obligations,” a source close to the actor told the publication. “In doing so, she has violated the rights of the only person who poured money and sweat equity into the success of the business by purporting to sell both the business and family home to a third-party competitor.”
“She is seeking a return on an investment she did not make and profits she did not earn,” the insider went on to say. He demands the court to throw out the arrangement and award him damages.

So he's not claiming any responsibility for HIS Make It Right project and not doing anything for victims but he's immediately taking action just because Angelina Jolie sold her OWN shares? Abusive, arrogant piece of shit. https://t.co/8BS8SXjQpq— mel (@marvelouszm) February 18, 2022
What exactly brad pitt want from angelina jolie? Stay there and sell wine with him? Didn't their marriage end because he was an alcoholic? Suing her for selling something of her own is not an act that a healthy person can do. https://t.co/CopNai6uqD— , (@natalieforlive) February 18, 2022
I’m sure there was also an “understanding” that you wouldn’t abuse your children but look how that turned out https://t.co/cfVxF8cV79— the girl with the jane austen tattoo (@brookeandyy) February 18, 2022
This passive-aggressive bullshit is making me hate Brad and his management https://t.co/9BzVkcnf07— Amy! Ami! Amé! (@amyslayer) February 18, 2022
He is so annoying my god, how did Angelina even put up with him these years? https://t.co/YluFPZelQe— bean (@Rueile123) February 18, 2022
What exactly does he hope to gain from this?— Allison_Parker (@RachelMarron10) February 18, 2022
He's going to lose; verbal agreements don't hold up in court.
Plus, suing the mother of your children is just a bad PR move. https://t.co/RPKdBhShue
