Brad Pitt is suing his ex-wife, Angelina Jolie, for selling her stake in a French factory they bought together.
In the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles, Pitt said Jolie breached their agreement not to sell her stake in Chateau Miraval without the consent of the other party by selling her stake to a unit of the Stoly Group controlled by businessman Yuri Scheffler.
The Oscar-winning couple bought a controlling stake in the plant in 2008, and were married there in 2014.
The complaint alleges that Pitt, 58, said he “injected money, sweat and effort” into making Miraval one of the world’s most famous winemakers, with annual revenues exceeding $50 million, and accusing his ex-wife of seeking “undeserved profits by a stroke of luck” from the output. His action with inflicting “undue harm on him”.
