Docs is first obtained by Dailymail.com For a part published by the outlet on Monday afternoon. According to reports, Pete’s legal team has claimed that the 47-year-old actress sold her “progressive” Chatto Miraval Winery to a company run by a man named Half. Yuri Scheffler. The Scheffler flagship is run by the Russian vodka company Stolichnaya – who recently named himself Stolly as part of a “desperate attempt to isolate” the president. Vladimir Putin In the ongoing Russian aggression in Ukraine.
New court documents accuse Scheffler’s Stolly Brand of “a huge international liability”:
“Stolichnaya has been the object of boycotts all over the world. The U.S. Treasury Department designated Sheffler as the “Alligator of the Russian Federation” in an unclassified report to Congress through the 2017 Sanctions Act, according to Countering America’s Adversaries.
But while Scheffler’s alleged shady deal is interesting, the legal filing center is based on Jolie’s alleged desire to harm Pete’s business interests. And Big and small The star is now allegedly asking the judge for legal asylum following a shady winery sale!
According to the outlet, south of Chatto, France – where the ex-couple remarried in 2014 – this is Pete’s “passion” project.

According to court documents, the alleged sale of Jolie was motivated by a presumption to “harm Pete” after a family court judge’s decision late last year to give both parties 50/50 custody for their five minor children.
A source told the outlet that the 50/50 split probably angered Jolie, who accused her of seeking revenge in her own way:
“Jolie was excited and vindictive.”
Pete’s attorneys described the “secret” sale in a legal brief, filed in Los Angeles late last week, as follows:
“Jolie kept Pitt in the dark, and knowingly violated Pitt’s contractual rights, secretly ran after the alleged sale and ended it. In doing so, Jolie sought to forfeit her profits and return to those who did not invest.” Jolie knew and intended that Sheffler and his associates would try to control the business that Pitt had created and undermine Pitt’s investment in Miraval. “
The War Club Starr’s attorneys continued, alleging that the business had begun to “occupy an enemy” after the acquisition of Jolie’s shares by Schaffler’s team. Maleficent The star “imagined.”
The docs say:
“And Sheffler did exactly as Jolie had imagined. Since Jolie claimed to have gained interest in Miraval, Sheffler has begun to take over the liquor business, destabilizing Miraval’s activities and seeking access to Miraval’s confidential and proprietary information for the benefit of its competitors.”
The Seven The star’s legal team further alleges that the Jolie couple violated an earlier legal agreement that gave Pitt the right to first refuse to sell Angelina’s stake in the winery.
The Intact The director apparently did not do so, Pete’s lawyers claim. And they added:
“At the same time, Miraval’s collusion with Schaffler – who has gained notoriety through his cutthroat business strategy and dubious professional associations – jeopardizes Pete’s reputation as such a carefully crafted brand. All of this is a direct result of Jolie’s illegal and obscene behavior. By violating the parties’ agreement, Jolie has tried to force Pitt into partnering with a stranger and, worse, a stranger with toxic intercourse and motives. “
The filing claims that Pete bought Miraval from Jolie more than a year ago, and by April of last year, the two had figured out a way to do just that. However, Docs complains that in May 2021, after a breakthrough in the ex-couple’s custody of their children, Jolie stepped back for good:
“Negotiations have reached a very advanced stage, and the parties have even reached an agreement on prices. In May 2021, however, the judge appointed to preside over the couple’s custody proceedings issued a detailed interim judgment – after a week-long trial – that Jolie was not credible and that the existing custody order, at Pitt’s request, needed to be changed. The best interests of Pete and Jolie’s children. “
Despite being “pushed to make a deal to buy Jolie’s partnership,” court documents allege that Angelina’s lawyers presumably told Pitt that they were “free from any negotiations with you” and “free to do other transactions that we will do.” Think.
And this, apparently, is where Sheffler and Russian brand Stolly come into play.
There are many legal dramas here. And many hours of paying lawyers around this one, that’s for sure!
