Brad Pitt accuses former Angelina Jolie of selling her share of her beloved vineyard to a Russian oligarch

Relations between the former glamorous couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are at a low level again, and the heartthrob accuses his ex of trying to damage him by secretly selling his share in his French vineyard to a “Russian oligarch” with “poisonous intentions”.

The Fighters Club actor, 58, also states in a new court motion that there is a plan to take full control of his multimillion-dollar wine passion project.

Jolie, 47, has sold half of the Château Miraval winery to a booming company run by Yuri Shefler, 54, who owns a company that produces Russia’s leading Stolichnaya vodka, rebranded Stoli.

Pitt’s lawsuit over the sale began in February.

Legal documents compiled by and submitted on June 3 cite Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine and claim that “the Stoli brand is now a major international responsibility.”

They add that after Scheffler’s “desperate attempts to distance himself from Putin’s regime,” Stolichnaya “was the subject of a boycott around the world.”

“The US Treasury Department has identified Scheffler as an ‘oligarch in the Russian Federation’ in an unclassified report to Congress in accordance with the 2017 U.S. Anti-Sanctions Act,” the Los Angeles County Supreme Court said in a statement.

Pitt and Jolie, aka Brangelina before the breakup, bought a winery in Correns in 2008, and when they divorced, the estate was worth $ 164 million.

The castle in the south of France, where the couple got married in 2014, has become Brad’s “passion” and under his leadership one of the world’s most respected rosé producers, court documents say.

However, in October 2021, documents say that Jolie “deliberately sold her stake in Tenute del Mondo, to a hostile third competitor who is inclined to take control of Miraval.”

They also state that the Maleficent actor’s motivation for the deal was to “harm Pitt”.
