Angelina Jolie runs to court so that she can get rid of one of the last vestiges of her marriage to Brad pitt – including the wine business they owned together, which she wants to withdraw as soon as possible.
The actress just filed documents asking a judge to lift a restraining order on the transfer of their assets, which was put in place automatically when their divorce papers were pending. The asset she particularly wants to unload is Nouvel, LLC, their French wine company.
It’s a standard thing the courts do in cases like this, but now Angie says she needs the freeze lifted immediately so she can sell her share of the business to a third party … a deal that is apparently on the table, but the barrier needs to be removed. go through.
His attorneys note that they also contacted Brad’s legal team about this in hopes of resolving the issues. without the need for a formal hearing, but she says Brad’s attorney said he would get back to her. Angelina says she was worried about losing the deal in the meantime, so she went ahead and asked the judge to intervene.
Nouvel appears to be the LLC that started operating the chateau / vineyard in Provence that the former couple seized in 2011 … for around $ 60 million. We don’t know how much the business is worth now … but the alcohol business is booming.
A judge has yet to approve Angie’s request.
