Angelina Jolie Reveals Disturbing Past in Explosive Lawsuit Against Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s ongoing legal battle over the French winery they once co-owned is reaching a boiling point, fueled by fresh allegations of Pitt’s past physical abuse towards Jolie. In a recent motion filed by Jolie with the Los Angeles Superior Court, obtained by CNN, she details her attempts to sell her stake in the Miraval winery to Pitt, which collapsed when Pitt demanded she sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) preventing her from discussing his alleged abuse in public.

The latest development stems from Pitt’s 2022 lawsuit, asserting that both parties had agreed not to sell their shares in the winery without mutual consent. However, Pitt later accused Jolie of vindictively selling her stake following an adverse custody ruling in June 2023.

Jolie contends that Pitt’s history of abuse predates the infamous 2016 plane incident, though specifics are not provided in the recent filing. The motion vows to present compelling evidence at trial, including testimony, emails, and photographs, to demonstrate why Pitt’s insistence on the NDA was indicative of his own misconduct.

Initially willing to sign an NDA limited to protecting Miraval’s business interests, Jolie claims she refused Pitt’s broader NDA proposal, which aimed to silence any public discussion of their relationship dynamics.

CNN has reached out to Pitt’s representative for comment on the latest allegations. Meanwhile, Jolie’s attorney, Paul Murphy, emphasizes that Pitt’s refusal to purchase Jolie’s stake, followed by his lawsuit, brings the issue of the NDA to the forefront, suggesting it aims to conceal Pitt’s alleged abuse.

Despite the gravity of the situation, Jolie opted not to press charges after the 2016 altercation, believing it was best for Pitt to take responsibility and assist the family in recovery. However, Pitt’s representative has previously disputed Jolie’s account of the incident.

In a significant move, Jolie sold her share of the winery in October 2021 to Tenute del Mondo, a subsidiary of Stoli Group. The ongoing legal proceedings, coupled with Pitt’s perceived attempts to control and punish Jolie, continue to exact a heavy emotional and financial toll on her and their family.

Jolie, who initiated divorce proceedings in 2016, hopes for healing and stability for their children. The former couple, who were legally declared single in 2019, currently share joint custody.

As the Miraval dispute unfolds, the former Hollywood power couple’s legal saga persists, with the future of the winery hanging in the balance.
