Brad Pitt Launches New Legal Battle with Angelina Jolie Over Their $164 Million Chateau Miraval

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie‘s legal battle continues.

According to a report from ET, court documents filed in in Luxembourg reveal that Brad‘s company, Mondo Bongo, has sued Angelina‘s company, Nouvel.

The filing states that Mondo Bongo is suing Nouvel to stop a transfer of Quimicum shares from Mondo Bongo to Nouvel.

Quimicum is the company that controls Chateau Miraval, the French estate and vineyard where the couple tied the knot in August 2014. The docs state that the vineyard is valued at more that $160 million.

When the pair originally purchased shares in Qimicum in 2008, Brad held 60 percent of the company while Angelina held 40 percent. The court docs state that Brad agreed to have Mondo Bongo transfer some of its shares to Nouvel in 2013 in order to even their stakes.

The lawsuit alleges that Angelina is trying to sell her shares in Quinicum, circumventing Mondo Bongo’s right of first refusal.

“It is worth mentioning that, for the last four years, Nouvel [Angelina’s company] did not act in the best interest of Quimicum by systematically delaying the approval of the annual accounts and the renewal of the manager,” the suit alleges, accusing the actress of “systematic obstruction.”

Angelina‘s company has disputed the claims and alleges that it has made a number of good-faith attempts to settle the issue amicably, but has been forced to file a lawsuit to stop the transfer of Quimicum shares in order to bring their ownership in the company back to 60-40.

Earlier this month, there was a major update in Brad and Angelina‘s custody battle.
