Brad Pitt has claimed Angelina Jolie ‘sought to inflict harm’ on him, according to new court documents.
Daily Mail reports that the actor made the allegation when his ex-wife sold her part of the Chateau Miraval winery to a Russian Oligarch, named Yuri Shefler, which they purchased in 2008.
Court documents reportedly state: “Jolie pursued and then consummated the purported sale in secret, purposely keeping Pitt in the dark, and knowingly violating Pitt’s contractual rights.

“By doing so, Jolie sought to seize profits she had not earned and returns on an investment she did not make. Also through the purported sale, Jolie sought to inflict harm on Pitt.”
Allegedly, the couple had an agreement that neither could sell their share without the other agreeing to it. However, the actress is believed to have ‘ignored’ this by allowing a company run by Shefler, who owns a separate firm that makes Russian vodka, to purchase it.
The court documents reportedly went on to state: “Jolie knew and intended that Shefler and his affiliates would try to control the business Pitt had built and to undermine Pitt’s investment in Miraval.
“All of this is the direct result of Jolie’s unlawful and tortious conduct. In violation of the parties’ agreement, Jolie has sought to force Pitt into partnership with a stranger, and worse yet, a stranger with poisonous associations and intentions.”
Elsewhere, it was reportedly claimed that the 47-year-old hadn’t contributed to the growth of the company, so didn’t have the right to sell it.
The papers stated: “Pitt—through significant financial investment and years of sweat equity—has built a highly successful family-owned business. Miraval has correspondingly grown massively in value since 2008 and is now worth hundreds of millions of dollars.
“Meanwhile, Jolie has not returned to Miraval since filing for divorce in 2016. She did nothing to drive the growth of its business. Instead, she allowed Pitt to make these investments and devote himself to the business in reliance on the consent right she owed him.”
