Brad Pitt and Angelina divorced in 2016, but the battle over the winery they owned together rages on.
This week a Los Angeles judge denied Pitt’s legal team’s request to not share business documents and correspondence with Jolie’s legal representation. The fight still stems from the couple’s divorce and is in regards to the Chateau Miraval winery, where the pair were married in 2014.
In 2008, the couple moved into the winery’s main villa and took control of the company. It is located in Correns, France.
According to Page Six, the issues began when Jolie sold her stake in the company to large liquor purveyor Stoli. This then ushered in numerous lawsuits in the US, France, and Luxembourg between Pitt, Jolie, their personal business, and business partners.
In Friday’s proceedings, Jolie’s legal team subpoenaed documents from Pitt, his business manager, and his company, Mondo Bongo. Pitt’s team was fighting to have Jolie’s request denied.
The presiding judge in LA ruled Pitt and his business partners had to give all the documents over to Jolie’s lawyers. The judge also noted they would have to hand over the documents even before they appeal the decision.
Pitt and Jolie were married in 2005, have six children together, and divorced in 2016.
Jolie was last seen on screen in Marvel’s “Eternals” and is in pre-production on “Maleficent 3.”
Pitt will next grace the silver screen in the 2022 thriller “Bullet Train.”
