Hollywood’s former sweethearts, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, filed for divorce in 2016 and even though their marriage was officially dissolved in 2019, the entanglements of their shared business assets have caused them to repeatedly battle it out in court. According to ET Online, the former couple has finally reached an agreement regarding their shared assets.
Both Brad Pitt and Angelia Jolie have impressively large net worths, much of it made during the duration of their marriage. Angelina Jolie has long been at odds with her former husband about selling off what was once theirs. However, according to court documents that were originally obtained by ET, the former couple has agreed to lift a restraining order that prevented each of them from selling off possessions of value that were acquired while they were married.
The restraining order may be lifted, but the feud between Angelina Jolie and her ex-husband is just getting started on many levels. In fact, the agreement that was reached only happened after a heated battle ensued over the fate of one of their largest assets. Forbes detailed that Brad Pitt’s company, Mondo Dongo, had filed suit against Angelina Jolie’s company, Nouvel. The suit was filed over a discrepancy involving their winery in France, Chateau Miraval.
Chateau Miraval is worth a total of $164 million dollars. MSN detailed that initially, Mondo Dongo held 60 percent of Quimicum (the company that owns Chateau Miraval) while Angelina Jolie’s company only held 40 percent. However, in 2013 that was changed to reflect an even split between both Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s companies, with the stipulation that Mondo Dongo maintains the right of first refusal. Angelina Jolie’s attempt to circumvent that aforementioned stipulation is what prompted Mondo Dongo to file suit.
Mondo Dongo had asserted that Angelina Jolie’s company tried to circumvent Mondo Dongo’s right of first refusal by attempting to transfer her shares from Quimicum to her company Nouvel so that she could sell them without having to notify Mondo Dongo. The lawsuit suggested that because of Angelina Jolie’s “systemic obstruction”, essentially because of the nature in which she went about trying to sell her stock in the Winery, that the shares should revert back to a 60-40 split and that she not be permitted to sell. However, the former couple has finally agreed to let Angelina Jolie sell her stock in the company.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt may have settled on one thing, but they still are still knee-deep in a custody battle over all of their children. Additionally, Angelina Jolie has also been very candid in recent weeks about how she felt about her ex-husband’s working relationship with former Hollywood mogul and convicted rapist, Harvey Weinstein. She openly expressed how deeply it bothered her that Pitt would do any kind of business with that type of human being.
Regardless of how Angelina Jolie feels about her former husband, that has not stopped her from concentrating on the future of her career. In fact, Giant Freakin Robot exclusively learned that the actress just signed a massive deal with Marvel that will solidify her involvement in multiple movies. However, the full details about exactly which movies Angelina Jolie will partake in still have yet to be revealed.
