Brad Pitt accused his ex-wife, Angelina Jolie, of trying to “harm him” by selling a 50% stake in a French vineyard to a Russian oligarch with “its toxic associations and intentions.”

The indictment in Pita’s new lawsuit against Jolie over the sale of Chateau Miraval is the latest in bitter legal battles between a former Hollywood couple who filed for divorce in 2016.

In October last year, Jolie sold part of her vineyards in the south of France, where she and Pete were hosting a wedding to Tenutei del Mondo, a subsidiary of the Russian-born beverage group Yuri Sheffler.

Pitt filed a lawsuit in February, saying the couple had agreed not to sell their interests without the other’s consent and accused Jolie of making “unearned” profits.

In an amended complaint seen by AFP, Pete’s lawyers claimed that “Jolie was trying to harm Pitta by selling” and described Sheffler as a “stranger with toxic associations and intentions.”

A lawsuit filed in a Los Angeles court last Friday alleges that Sheffler “maintains personal and professional relationships with those close to Vladimir Putin.”

Sheffler has long been a critic of Putin, a Latvian-based Stoli group beverage conglomerate.

In March, following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Shelfer issued a statement saying he had been “expelled from Russia since 2002 for my opposition to Putin” and renamed his company “Solidarity with Ukraine.”

But Pete’s latest statement said: “Despite Sheffler’s desperate attempt to distance himself from Putin’s regime, the Stoley brand is now a huge international obligation.”

He adds: “Stoli vodka is synonymous with Russia, as evidenced by countless photos in which consumers pour Stoli vodka into the sewers.”

“Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, the Maraval insurance company has been looking for assurances that Sheffler is not affiliated with Putin and that affiliation with Stoly will not pose a commercial risk,” the lawsuit said.

The complaint also states that the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman, is one of the possible members of the “Sheffler Network of Professional Scholars”, which “threatens to permanently damage Maravala’s reputation”.

Stoly Group did not respond immediately to the request for comments.

A source close to the situation told AFP that Jolie had decided to sell because she and her children “could not return” to Chateau Miraval, and made several offers to her ex-husband before signing a contract with Sheffler.

The source said that Pete’s claim against Jolie was “an extension of a false narrative” and that “the truth about the situation has yet to be made public.”

Tinzeltown’s most famous couple, Pitt and Jolie, once met for the first time after starring in the 2005 movie “Mr. and Mrs. Smith. ” Pete was married to Jennifer Aniston at the time.

List 1 announced in 2018 that they had reached an amicable settlement for their children – three biological and three adopted – but any deal seems to be falling apart quickly.

Last July, Jolie won the custody battle as a special judge overseeing divorce and custody cases was removed from the case. AP
