Angelina Jolie is attempting to sell her share in the wine business she co-owns with ex-husband Brad Pitt amid the couple’s divorce.

Per TMZ, the Oscar-winning actress, 46, has filed a petition in Los Angeles calling for the judge to remove the temporary restraining order on their assets which has been in place since their divorce began in 2016 for fear of losing an interested buyer.

The order was started automatically when the divorce was filed and although the judge has yet to respond to the current request to lift it, an emergency request was rejected in June with the filing stating that Angelina had failed to show “immediate danger/irreparable harm or immediate loss/damage to property.”

Angelina is trying to sell her Nouvel LLC, which has interests in the Chateau Miraval vineyard she and Brad, 57, bought in France in 2011, with his Mondo Bongo LLC being an equal shareholder, according to documents.

Documents state that Angelina does not want to be Brad’s “unwilling and disregarded business partner” but is not able to force him to buy her out after failing to reach an agreement after “lengthy negotiations.”

According to her legal team, Angelina has now found a third-party buyer for her share, but wants the restriction lifted for the sale to go ahead so she doesn’t lose the buyer.

The documents state: “Time is of the essence because the buyer has communicated that any delay may result in the buyer pulling out of the deal.”

Angelina filed for divorce from Brad in 2016, two years after they married in Chateau Miraval, and over a decade after they met on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith — the infamous film on which set they would later admit they fell in love on.

The pair's marriage was officially dissolved in 2019, and Brad was granted joint custody over their 5 children in May, with their oldest son Maddox exempted from the decision.
