Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s Wrath Over ‘Abusive’ NDA Amid $500M Winery Feud

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s tumultuous split continues to cast a long shadow, with their multi-million dollar winery venture, Chateau Miraval, becoming the latest battleground in their ongoing legal war. At the heart of the dispute lies a disagreement over a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) that Jolie opposes.

The simmering feud has reached a boiling point with Jolie’s lawyers filing a scathing response to Pitt’s recent request to see all her past NDAs. This request, Jolie’s team argues, is not only “expensive” and “wasteful” but also a veiled attempt to silence her from speaking out about past allegations of abuse.

A NDA Deemed “Abusive”

The crux of the issue revolves around the NDA Pitt reportedly wanted Jolie to sign as part of the couple’s proposed sale of Chateau Miraval. Jolie’s lawyers claim this NDA was broad, aiming to “cover Pitt’s misconduct, whether related to Miraval or not.” They further allege that Pitt sought to use this NDA as a tool to prevent Jolie from disclosing any past instances of abuse, silencing her voice.

Privacy Concerns and Unnecessary Intrusion

Jolie’s legal team vehemently opposes Pitt’s request to access her past NDAs, citing privacy concerns for the third parties involved. These NDAs, they argue, likely encompass employment contracts containing confidential details about Jolie’s compensation and that of others involved. Furthermore, they contend that compelling Jolie to gather and produce such a vast amount of documentation would be a colossal waste of time and resources.

A Vendetta Disguised as Legal Maneuvering?

Jolie’s lawyers go on to paint a picture of Pitt’s NDA request as a veiled attempt to intimidate and harass her. They argue that Pitt seeks to “dig up two decades of contractual relationships” to “impeach” her claims of abuse.

This strategy, they assert, aims to trivialize Jolie’s concerns by suggesting that if she entered into NDAs with others, then Pitt’s request shouldn’t be a deal-breaker. The crucial distinction, but, lies in the information these NDAs protect.

Unlike the one Pitt proposed, none of Jolie’s previous NDAs involved attempts to silence her about domestic abuse.

Seeking Closure and Peace

Jolie’s legal team concludes by emphasizing her desire for a swift resolution and a peaceful future. They assert that Jolie “deserves peace after all these years” and view Pitt’s continued legal maneuvering as an unnecessary obstacle to achieving that peace.

Jolie’s team further emphasizes her commitment to healing and moving forward for the sake of the children and her own well-being.
