The actor Brad Pitt is betting big to continue his lawsuit against and ex-wife Angelina Jolie. This time, he turned to a private detective, in order to find the Russian oligarch who would have bought the actress’ share in one of his businesses.
The process began after she sold her stake in a successful winery that the couple owned. The sale would have been illegal, as both agreed that they could never make a deal without first agreeing.
However, it seems that Angelina did not respect the clause, and passed on her share to a famous businessman in the alcoholic beverage industry, Yuri Shefler. According to Brad, the move would have been designed to damage his reputation and compromise the company’s name.
“She sold her stake with the knowledge and the intention that Yuri and his team would try to take control of the business to which Brad has dedicated himself, thus undermining his investment in Miraval,” read an excerpt from the lawsuit.

In addition, the winery, which is located in the south of France, has become a worldwide success, providing some of the best wines in the country and standing out for the production of luxurious rosé wines.
