Angelina Jolie has prevailed in a legal dispute with her ex-husband Brad Pitt on the ownership of the Chateau Miraval vineyard, which the couple used for their wedding ceremony in 2014.
When the couple moved into the chateau that is located on their Provencal Vineyard in 2008, they assumed ownership of the well-known Rose Company. Since then, Pitt has been hard at work improving the gorgeous structures and gardens that surround the property.
Jolie, Pitt, their companies, and other business partners in the United States, France, and Luxembourg are all involved in a complex legal dispute because of the sale of Jolie’s share of the company to the multinational wine company Stoli.
The most recent fight was the submission of paperwork by Jolie’s team, which included information from Pitt, her business manager, and her firm, Mondo Bongo. The legal team representing Pitt has put in a lot of effort to persuade the judge to deny Jolie’s request for access to documents and communications.

Angelina Jolie Wins the Battle Against Brad Pitt Over
But on Friday, a court in Los Angeles decided that Pitt and his aides have to give them up to the opposing counsel. The judge also stated that they couldn’t even wait until they appealed the decision to hand them over.
According to sources close to the business operations of the “Maleficent” actor, Pitt’s letting go of his anger over their brutal separation comes in the way of regular business sense. This information was provided to Page Six by these sources.
“Any sane and reasonable person on the planet would be overjoyed” if Stoli became a partner in their company. They said that the company has enormous prospects for the growth of the business, citing the company’s exceptional marketing and distribution capabilities. “He just is unable of getting over his loathing for Jolie.” In 2014, Jolie Jolie Pitt and Brad Pitt were married in the opulent mansion.

However, according to a source close to Pitt, not only is the business transaction with Stoli, not a no-brainer, but Pitt also rejected an offer from Stoli to sell the company to them while he and Jolie were still married.
The $28.4 million Miraval home was acquired by the former couple in 2008.
A moat, fountains, a pond, a church, aqueducts, and a vineyard surround the 35-room estate, in which Pitt allegedly invested 70 percent of the couple’s total investment.
Pitt and Jolie have a blended family of six children; they divorced in 2016.
According to what they stated, the concept of selling a portion of the firm to improve distribution goes against his long-standing goal for the project, which is to reinvest the earnings from the company in the endeavor.
In addition to this, they said that “the greatest method to preserve wealth for [their children] It is up to the parents to keep complete ownership of this highly valuable and developing asset.”
In 2016, the couple, who together had six children, decided to end their relationship. They have been a couple since the year 2005.
