Angelina Jolie Has Been Given The OK To Sell Her Château Miraval Shares

September 24, 2021 / Posted by:

Here is today’s reason for why Brad Pitt muffles his screams into his favorite hand-dyed vintage-look tastefully-distressed organic cotton v-neck t-shirt. Just a few days after Brad filed a lawsuit against his ex-wife Angelina Jolie over the distribution and ownership of shares of their French vineyard, Château Miraval, she has been given the thumbs-up to sell her shares, regardless of how Brad feels about that.

We first learned of Angelina’s quest to dump those rosé shares earlier this summer. Angelina and Brad became co-owners of the winery (which also makes olive oil) when they first got together. It was also the location of their 2014 wedding. They loved the place, but after splitting up, Angelina decided she wanted to sell her shares and be done with the Château. But the problem was that there was a “standard temporary restraining order” issued that prevented either party from selling assets owned during their marriage. But the restraining order has been lifted and Angelina can now dump her shares. via People magazine:

According to new court documents obtained by PEOPLE, Jolie, 46, has been allowed to sell off her shares in the winery and estate, which is where she married Pitt back in 2014, to a third party.

When the two actors first purchased their shares in Quimicum in 2008, their respective companies split the ownership 60-40, with Mondo Bongo holding the majority share. In 2013, the split evened to 50-50 when Mondo Bongo transferred some shares to Nouvel, the lawsuit said.

The documents claimed Pitt sold Jolie the shares back in 2013 for a symbolic price, below the true value of her stake, and is now arguing the transfer should be voided.

The estimated value of Château Miraval is $164 million, and if Angelina sells her half, there’s a chance she could stand to make $82 million. Just think of all the charcoal grey cashmere caftans she could buy with that! And as People notes above, the big issue here is that Brad thinks Angelina is trying to pull a fast one and make out like a bandit. Because according to his lawsuit, which was filed Tuesday in Luxembourg, Angelina originally owned 40% of the shares, with Brad owning 60% of the shares. After they got married, Brad sold Angelina an extra 10% for the low (and, in retrospect, legally very stupid) cost of €1. Now Angelina is trying to sell her 50% shares, which yes, means she’s going to make a profit off the shares she bought for €1.

Brad is trying to stop that from happening, but – Price is Right losing horn sound – he might be too late. Because with this restraining order lifted, she can sell her shares, however many she currently owns. Brad better act fast if he wants to prevent Angelina from selling 50%, as opposed to the 40% he wants. He’s got two options. One, to get his lawyers filing papers at warp speed to get some kind of injunction to make it so she can’t sell until this percentage shit has been worked out. Or two, he puts on his best disguise and attempts to sabotage every potential sale. Again, he better hurry. No time for a good disguise, just throw on a bedsheet and act like a ghost. “OoOoOooh! Don’t buy those shares! They’re haunted! Haunted by…uh…me, the ghost of a messy ongoing divorce battle! Actually, that’s kind of true.
