According to Page Six, there’s speculation that Angelina Jolie might be trying to cut her ex-husband Brad Pitt out of a deal that is tied to their French estate, Chateau Miraval. It’s a place that is close to both of their hearts, as Pitt told Wine Spectator (via Slate) back in 2014 that his newfound passion for winemaking has turned him into a farmer. “I love learning about the land and which field is most suitable for which grape, the drama of September and October: Are we picking today? Where are the sugar levels? How is the acidity? Is it going to rain?” He elaborated.
Jolie allegedly wants to sell her 50% share of her chateau. Page Six says that Jolie might not have given Pitt notice to perhaps buy her out. This means that she is ready to break all ties with the joint holdings she holds with her ex husband. This could be her way of moving on.
However, a Page Six source that is seemingly closer to Pitt slammed Jolie, saying, “It’s another example of Angelina trying to circumvent the rules and avoid their obligations.” Meanwhile, Pitt’s lawyers want to make sure that whatever deals are made are being done by the book. How does Pitt feel about this?
