The ongoing legal battle between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt has caught everyone’s attention. Now, amid the same, an email sent by the actress to her ex-husband has leaked online through TikTok. According to the latest reports, the email was a part of the court documents sent by Jolie to Pitt in January 2021. The lengthy email begins with the actress saying she is putting it in writing so as not to get emotional about the matter. She then goes on to talk about the decision to sell the Chateau Miraval Winery that she co-owns with Brad Pitt.
The email details
Angelina Jolie starts by saying, “It is the place we brought the twins home to, and where we were married over a plaque in my mother’s memory” stating that the place held the promise of what could be and added that she wanted to grow old in the same. She further wrote, “Even now impossible to write this without crying. I will treasure my memories of what it was a decade ago.”
The winery business
The actress also went on to blame the winery business for the end of her family and marriage and stated, “But it is also the place that marks the beginning of the end of our family – and a business that is centred around alcohol.” Angelina Jolie also referred to ex-husband Brad Pitt’s struggle with alcohol and added that it would have been something that could help the couple. She said, “I see now how you have really wanted me out and will most likely be pleased to receive this email.”
She recalled how she was shaken by the imagery of selling alcohol and said, “It reminded me of painful times.” Jolie also made it clear that she could not be involved in a business based on alcohol when it harmed her family so deeply.

Angelina Jolie detailed two ways forward that included an option for outright sale and alternative ways of a complete buyout of her share of property and business. She added, “I believe we need to move forward in order to heal and focus on where our family comes together, and where we have positive associations. And to do so quickly.”
The actress concluded the email by saying, “I wish you all the best with the business, and sincerely hope that the children feel differently about Miraval when they are older, and visit you there. But Miraval for me died September 2016, and everything I have seen in the years since has sadly confirmed that.”
