Angelina Jolie selling iconic French Chateau for $61 million
Angelina Jolie is selling her estate in Provence, France, after several legal issues.
The actress filed for divorce from fellow actor Brad Pitt over five years ago, yet the couple remain linked due to the glorious French Chateau that was once a blessing, but now a plague for them.
The pair purchased the estate back in 2008, for a reported €45 million (AUD $72 million).
The incredible property includes several residential and non-residential structures, from a rundown, adorable chapel to a high-functioning farm.
What gave the chateau a firm reputation, other than its high-profile owners, was its glorious pink wine which won them Wine Spectator’s award for best rosé in the world, back in 2013.
Jolie claims since the couple split back in 2016, Pitt has prevented her from selling the estate.
In June, the mother-of-four even went so far as to file a petition to ask the judge to lift the order that prevents a transfer of assets so she could finally be rid of the property.
Considering the couple purchased the estate prior to their nuptials in 2014, Jolie’s lawyers say the glorious French chateau should solely be considered hers.
“After all these years of trying to extricate herself from being business partners with her ex-husband on acceptable financial terms, Ms. Jolie is extremely desirous of closing the pending agreement for the sale of Nouvel, LLC, and requests that the Court issue an order lifting the ATROs and specifying that they shall not apply to Ms. Jolie’s sale of Nouvel, LLC,” the actress’ legal team stated in a document that was obtained by Us Weekly.
The rumour mill has claimed the actress has plans to sell it to a willing buyer for an estimate of USD $61 million.
