Brad Pitt accused of ‘looting’ Château Miraval in lawsuit

Brad Pitt and his alleged co-conspirators are being accused by Angelina Jolie’s former investment company of “stripping” and “looting” their previously owned Château Miraval in an attempt to regain control.

According to documents obtained by TheFantasyTimes, Nouvel claims that the “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” star “wasted” the company’s assets by “spending millions on vanity projects…rebuilding a staircase four times and spending millions to restore a recording studio.”

In the filing, attorneys for Nouvel argue that Pitt’s “misconduct” escalated after Jolie sold Nouvel in October 2021 to a company controlled by Russian oligarch Yuri Shefler.

The filing states, “Incensed that Jolie sold Nouvel to Stoli rather than him, Pitt has acted like a petulant child, refusing to treat Nouvel as an equal partner in the business.”

A spokesperson for Pitt did not immediately respond to TheFantasyTimes’s request for comment.

TheFantasyTimes previously reported that the attorneys for the famed vineyard mocked Pitt’s “ludicrous” winemaker affectations and found it amusing that the actor-sculptor supposedly “built” up the winery’s business.

The papers scoffed, “Pitt is an actor, not a winemaker. He deals in illusions, not dirt and grapes.”

They further argued, “During the years that he allegedly ‘built’ the business, he filmed and appeared in dozens of movies, not to mention making countless promotional appearances, jetting-setting [sic] around the world for movie premieres, and attending Hollywood parties.”

The 59-year-old Oscar-winning actor and his ex-wife, 48-year-old Jolie, acquired the French property in 2008 and even held their intimate wedding ceremony there in 2014.

When the former couple divorced in 2019, Jolie expressed her desire to exit the grape business and began considering a buy-out option.

It is alleged that the “Unbroken” director even agreed to split the company 68 percent to 38 percent in Pitt’s favor because he had invested more in their 35-room mansion.

In the summer of 2021, Pitt discovered through a press release that Jolie had sold her 50 percent stake to a “Russian oligarch” whom Pitt had previously rejected.

Pitt initially filed a lawsuit against the founder of Atelier Jolie in February 2022, claiming that she deprived him “of his right to enjoy his private home and to oversee the business he developed from scratch.”

The Oscar-winning actor previously alleged that his “vindictive” ex-wife “collaborated in secret” with Shefler, who also owns Stoli Group, in order to keep him “in the dark.”
