Brad Pitt ‘has spent $10 MILLION fighting Angelina Jolie over French vineyard’


Brad Pitt has reportedly spent $10 million on legal fees in his fight with his ex-wife Angelina Jolie over their French vineyard.
The ‘Fight Club’ actor, 60, split from Angelina, 48, in September 2016 and the pair have since been tied in a marathon battle over money, their six children and their French estate Château Miraval.
Brad is suing his ex for alleged breach of contract after she sold her share of the estate to Russian oligarch Yuri Shefler, 56, allegedly without the actor’s agreement.
A source has now told Page Six Brad has “spent an estimated $10 million so far on lawyers’ fees”.
They added he doesn’t consider it wasted money, saying: “This is all about standing up to bullies and defending his own people, principles and the truth. Brad is standing firm for what he believes in.”
The actor has long stated Angelina sold Miraval out of “spite” weeks after he was initially awarded joint custody of their children – which the actress has denied.
Page Six’s source added about their battle: “He’s willing to go and testify on a stand if it went to trial.”
Los Angeles Superior Court last week ruled that the case could go to trial.
Brad is said to be enjoying his life otherwise, with sources saying he is living with his girlfriend, Ines de Ramon, 34.
A source close to the couple told Page Six: “They’re spending all their time together. They’re super happy.”
Brad and Angelina bought Château Miraval together in 2008, with the actor taking a leading role in a vineyard business which produces its award-winning rosé wine Miraval.
The estate also boasts a recording studio that has hosted acts including AC/DC, The Cure and Travis Scott.
Brad and Angelina married there in an intimate 2014 ceremony with all six of their children present.
When Angelina sold her stake in the South of France business to Yuri’s Stoli Group for $64 million in 2021, Brad claimed he only learned of the deal through a press release.
