Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have reportedly reached an agreement in their contentious court battle to lift a “standard temporary restraining order” on their assets.
The move allows the exes to sell property owned during their marriage, according to “Entertainment Tonight,” paving the way for the actress to get rid of her stake in their $ 164 million French estate, Chateau Miraval.
But Jolie’s offer to sell her 50 percent stake in the 1,000-acre property in Correns, France is unlikely to come without a battle.
As Page Six reported earlier this week, Jolie is being sued for allegedly trying to deny Pitt the opportunity to buy his other half.
According to the lawsuit, Pitt, 57, and Jolie, 46, held their shares for Miraval in separate limited liability companies (LLCs).
Miraval is owned by Quimicum, a company in which Pitt originally held a 60% stake through his company Mondo Bongo, while Jolie owned 40% through his company Nouvel, according to court documents viewed by Page Six.
But three years before their separation in 2016, Pitt transferred 10% of the Mondo Bongo estate to Jolie’s Nouvel, making them equal shareholders. Sources told Page Six that the former couple also agreed to ask permission if they ever wanted to sell their shares.
But, the new lawsuit claims Jolie attempted to stealthily sell her shares without giving Pitt the right of first refusal.
“This is another example of Angelina trying to bend the rules and avoid their obligations,” a source told us earlier this week.
Jolie filed for divorce in September 2016 and sought primary custody of five of their six children: Pax, now 17, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 15, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 13. His 20-year-old Maddox is legally considered an adult.
Pitt scored a major victory in June when he was granted joint custody. However, Jolie vowed to fight the decision.
The “Maleficent” actress claimed that three of their children wanted to testify against Pitt but were blocked by Judge John Ouderkirk. A month later, Jolie’s attorneys argued that Ouderkirk should be removed from the case because Pitt’s attorneys did not disclose his previous relationship with the attorneys for the “Fight” actor. Club”.
Ouderkirk, who refused to disqualify himself from their divorce when Jolie asked him to do so in a court case in 2020, has a long history with the family. He even married Pitt and Jolie in 2014.
