No more sour grapes! Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie ‘agree to mediation over bitter vineyard war’

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have reportedly agreed to a mediation over their vineyard war.

The ‘Fight Club’ star, 59, and his ‘Maleficent’ actress ex-wife Angelina, 48, bought Château Miraval in France in 2008 and married there in an intimate ceremony in 2014, but have been battling over it since their split.

But the Daily Mail has reported a truce may be on the horizon as documents filed last week as part of the vineyard dispute apparently show both A-listers have agreed to mediation as an alternative method of dispute resolution instead of letting the matter going to court.

The newspaper added: “Jolie has also said that she’s willing to take part in a settlement conference.”

It reported Brad has appointed a “provisional administrator” to Château Miraval in a bid to resolve the war between himself and the Russians Angelina sold her share of the vineyard to.

The move will see an independent figure come in to assess the winery and how it is run.

A French source told the Mail: “In view of the dispute between Nouvel LLC (controlled by Stoli boss Yuri Shefler) and Mondo Bongo LLC (controlled by Brad Pitt), Château Miraval and its director have requested and obtained the appointment of a provisional administrator by the Draguignan (France) Commercial Court, to enable the company and its director to continue to grow the business and its essential partnership with the Perrin Family until such dispute is resolved, in the interests of Château Miraval, its directors, employees, partners and subsidiaries.”
