Angelina Jolie has won a legal battle with Brad Pitt over the Chateau Miraval winery. While the initial drama revolved around determining ownership among the actors, Angelina shockingly sold her 50% stake to Russian Ogliarch Yuri Shefler, who owns Russian vodka Stolichnaya (also known as Stoli).

The sale sparked a slew of lawsuits from around the world, including one from Brad himself, who sued the Lara Croft: Tom Raider actress, claiming he had no idea she was doing so.
Angelina’s legal team has now subpoenaed documents from Brad, 58, as well as his company Mondo Bongo and his business manager, according to Page Six, on Friday, July 22.
A judge in Los Angeles has ordered Brad and his partners to turn over documents to Angelina’s team, despite Brad’s legal team requesting that the courts deny Angelina Jolie and her team’s request for any correspondence and papers.
Even if Brad and his legal team wanted to appeal, the judge ruled that they couldn’t wait until that decision was made — and that everything had to be turned over.
The couple paid $28.4 million for the winery, which is known for its world-class rosé, in 2008. They later married on the massive property in 2014, in front of their children Maddox, 21, Zahara, 17, Pax, 18, Shiloh, 16, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 14.
Previously, Brad accused his Oscar winning ex of “inflicting harm” on him, per the documents that have been obtained by the media, after she sold her 50% share. Notably, the winery is now worth $167M.
“Jolie consummated the purported sale without Pitt’s knowledge, denying Pitt the consent right she owed him and the right of the first refusal her business entity owed his,” the past documents said.

“She sold her interest with the knowledge and intention that Shefler and his affiliates would seek to control the business to which Pitt had devoted himself and to undermine Pitt’s investment in Miraval.”
The winery has been a source of contention in the couple’s ongoing divorce since 2016. Although they married in 2015, the couple first met romantically in 2005.
