Angelina Jolie is attempting to sell her share in the wine business she co-owns with ex-husband Brad Pitt amid the couple’s divorce. 

The Oscar-winning actress, 46, has filed a petition in Los Angeles calling for the judge to remove the temporary restraining order on their assets which has been in place since their divorce began in 2016 for fear of losing an interested buyer.

The order was started automatically when the divorce was filed and although the judge has yet to respond to the current request to lift it, an emergency request was rejected in June with the filing stating that Angelina had failed to show ‘immediate danger/irreparable harm or immediate loss/damage to property.’

Angelina is trying to sell her Nouvel LLC, which has interests in the Chateau Miraval vineyard she and Brad, 57, bought in France in 2011, with his Mondo Bongo LLC being an equal shareholder, according to documents. 

Documents state that Angelina does not want to be Brad’s ‘unwilling and disregarded business partner’ but is not able to force him to buy her out after failing to reach an agreement after ‘lengthy negotiations’.

According to her legal team, Angelina has now found a third-party buyer for her share, but wants the restriction lifted for the sale to go ahead so she doesn’t lose the buyer.

The documents state: ‘Time is of the essence because the buyer has communicated that any delay may result in the buyer pulling out of the deal.’

Brad and Angelina have been embroiled in the complicated divorce for five years, although they were legally declared single in 2019 and have yet to finalise a custody arrangement for their children.

Angelina had filed for divorce days after an argument on their private jet from France to Los Angeles, during which Brad was accused of being abusive to his then-15-year-old son during the flight.

Investigations by child welfare officials and the FBI were closed with no charges being filed against the actor.

The couple share 19-year-old Maddox, Pax, 17, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 15, and 12-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
