Pitt (60) filed a lawsuit against Jolie (48) in 2022 after she sold her share in the Château Miraval Winery to the Russian oligarch Yuri Shefler (56) – without the consent of her ex-husband, who has since taken action in court in California and Luxembourg.

The former couple had bought the estate before getting married, with Pitt owning 60% and Jolie 40%.

For their wedding in 2014, the Ocean's Eleven actor gave his wife another 10%, so that she owned half when they separated in 2016.

Jolie went on to sell her shares to Shefler, the owner of a Russian vodka giant, but the Inglorious Basterds star argued that the 10% transfer deal was not valid and that he should retain the 60% control.

According to Page Six, a Luxembourg court has now ruled that the 10% will revert to Pitt for the time being until there is a final decision.

The decision gives Pitt a little more control over the winery – at least, for now.
