As Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's next court hearing amid a heated custody battle for their children is set for July 9, there's the other bone of contention in finalising their divorce that Angie wants to be sorted immediately! According to US Weekly, Angelina wants to sell Brangelina's French castle and winery, Château Miraval. However, Jolie claims that Pitt is trying to prevent her from unloading the property.

In response, on July 6, the Eternals star filed a petition asking a judge for the removal of the ATRO (Automatic Temporary Restraining Order) on her divorce from the Bullet Train star. For the unversed, the ATRO is a common order preventing either party from making any financial decision that would hurt the other throughout the divorce proceedings. As per the court documents obtained by US Weekly, Angelina's lawyer claimed that the 46-year-old actress cannot finalise the winery's sale despite finding a third-party buyer for Nouvel, LLC, Brangelina's French winery company.

The reason being the 57-year-old actor not yet consenting to lift the ATRO. It's to be noted that Jolie won't be able to sell the winery unless a judge agrees to her request, i.e. to lift the ATRO. Written in the declaration filed by Angie's attorney: "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."

It was on June 30, when Angelina had previously filed an emergency application to remove the ATRO as a precaution so that the third-party buyer wouldn't have time to back out of the sale. However, the judge rules that Jolie's legal team hasn't been able to prove that there was "immediate danger/irreparable harm or immediate loss/damage to property."

Moreover, Angelina's legal team has claimed that Château Miraval solely belongs to her since it was purchased before Brangelina wed in 2014, ironically, with the French castle as their nuptials venue. The legal team has requested for a September 22 hearing, where Jolie will once again ask the judge to lift the ATRO so that she can move forward with Château Miraval's sale.

Interestingly, according to TMZ, Angelina's attorneys note that they had contacted Brad's legal team over lifting the ATRO, hopeful they could resolve things without needing a formal hearing. However, Pitt's lawyer responded that he'd get back to her on it. Jolie admitted that she was worried about losing the deal which prompted her to go ahead and ask a judge to intervene.

Anonymous : Angelina's team is lying. He is preventing her from selling his estate. He has always partially owned Miraval. If she wants to buy him out, that is a different story but she is trying to sell property that he co-owns. Her lying is crazy She does not want to buy him out she wants him to give it to her. The problem is they were only married 2 years. Common law marriage not recognize in state of California. She may not own part of this nor be viable for this entitlement in payment

It is now owned by Pitt and Jolie, who were married in the château's chapel in August 2014.[2] In 2017, a new product was released by Château Miraval, an organic extra virgin olive oil. "

Anonymous : This is parental alienation Sharing Grown Up Details With the Child A parent will make the child privy to the details of the divorce and the ongoing conflict between the parents. They discuss financial problems brought on by the divorce. Make the child aware of legal issues that are ongoing and make it appear that if it weren’t for dad or mom their life would be easier. Not only can this cause the child to feel anger toward the other parent it can also cause the child to feel responsible for your situation and want to take on responsibilities that are not theirs.
