On the contrary, my friend!

Brad Pitt filed new court filings yesterday claiming Angelina Jolie refused to sell her half of her French vineyard, Chateau Miraval, to him because she felt “vindictive” that a custody decision didn’t go her way.

But a source close to the actress tells Page Six that she didn’t call off the deal because she had a bee in her hood – but because Pitt was trying to keep her from speaking out about his abuse of her children.

Pitt was, of course, accused of “choking and punching” one of her children during an infamous cross-country private flight in 2016 and of “pouring beer on Jolie.”

Referring to court filings filed in 2022, a friend of Jolie’s told us, “The reality is like this [he] refused to complete the Miraval sale with Jolie unless she agreed to be silenced about the abuse… He demanded that $8.5 million be withheld [from his payment to her for the winery] to silence them.” (The idea was that Pitt would keep some or all of the $8.5 million if she babbled).

Sources close to Jolie tell us that she actually refused to sell her stake because, they allege, Pitt tried to get her to sign a non-disclosure agreement that would prevent her from discussing her infamous Talking flight in 2016.

The insider added that no matter what legal maneuvers the “Seven” star tries, “He cannot escape the fact that he verbally and physically assaulted Ms. Jolie and their children — even choking one of the children and a hit another.”

(A source close to Pitt told us that the pal’s claim was “misleading.” The Pitt insider said that Pitt only ever asked her to sign a standard business nondisclosure agreement related to the winery’s purchase, which anyone selling a valuable asset must sign.” “It wasn’t about family matters,” they said. “It’s standard to have a non-disclosure agreement that stops someone from selling something and then discounting it and increasing its value reduce.”)

According to legal documents filed Thursday and obtained by Page Six, Pitt claims he and Jolie agreed not to sell their interests in the $30 million Provence winery – which they bought in 2008 – without the other’s approval.

When they divorced in 2019, Jolie decided to sell her stake to Pitt, 59.

Then, in 2021, Pitt claims he found out in a press release that his “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” co-star had sold her stake to Yuri Shefler, owner of Stoli Group vodka brand.

The new filings say Jolie “didn’t want to sell to Pitt anymore” following the adverse custody decision in which he was awarded joint custody of their six children. (The decision was later reversed.)

A Pitt representative declined to comment.
