The bitter battle between the star couple over their French vineyard has been settled. It is the actor who came out on top.
The dispute over Chateau Miraval and the associated plots of land was a source of mud-slinging between the famous film star and his former wife for years. After their divorce, a row arose about who exactly was entitled to the shares that Pitt had given to Jolie when they were still a married couple.
Details of the outcome of this case are not being released, but the bottom line is that Pitt has 100 percent control over the vineyard. It became clear at the end of last summer that an arrangement was coming. The lawyers of both parties then reported that the conflict would result in a settlement after consultation. The aim was to avoid an expensive and lengthy lawsuit. Angelina Jolie was previously sued by her ex because the actress sold her shares to a Russian businessman without Pitt’s approval.
Brad and Angelina acquired the castle and vineyard around 2008. Six years later their wedding took place there. The shares were divided equally at the time, with the agreement that both parties had to agree to any sale. The vineyard is very lucrative. The rosé wine has a very good report among wine connoisseurs.
