Angelina Jolie has prevailed in court against ex-husband Brad Pitt in their bitter dispute over the winery where they were wedded in 2014.
In 2008, the couple moved into the chateau on the firm’s Provençal vineyard and assumed leadership of the acclaimed rosé company, where Pitt has been hard at work maintaining the property’s stunning architecture and surroundings.
However, Jolie sold her share to liquor giant Stoli, which triggered a complex legal battle involving Pitt, Jolie, their respective companies, and a number of other business partners in the United States, France, and Luxembourg.
In the most recent round of fighting, Jolie’s side issued subpoenas to Pitt, his manager, and Pitt’s firm, Mondo Bongo.
Jolie has requested access to court documents and correspondence, and Pitt’s team has fought tooth and nail to get her request denied.
A judge in Los Angeles ruled last Friday that Pitt and his partners must turn up the documents to the opposing attorneys and that they cannot wait to do so while appealing the ruling.
Page Six quotes insiders close to the “Maleficent” star’s business as saying that Pitt is allowing his rage over their nasty separation to get in the way of good business judgment.

Having Stoli on board as a business partner would make any sane person delighted. They boast first-rate promotional efforts and distribution channels, and as a result, they claim, the company presents substantial expansion potential. Nothing can get through to him save his intense dislike for Jolie.
While Pitt and Jolie were still married, Pitt reportedly turned down an offer to sell the company to Stoli because he believed it was too risky.

They stated that his long-held plan for the project, which involves reinvesting revenues, runs opposed to the idea of selling a portion of the firm for fairer distribution.
They added, “The greatest approach to keep value for they are kids is for the parents to retain full ownership of this highly valuable and expanding asset.”
They have six kids together but divorced in 2016. Since 2005, they’d been a couple.
