Last call! Angelina Jolie is ready to sell her share of the wine company she used to co-own with ex-husband Brad Pitt, but first she had to file documents asking a judge to lift a restraining order on the transfer of their joint assets.
According to TMZ, the Maleficent actress is seeking to sell her half of Nouvel, LLC, their French winery company, but in order to do that she must overcome a not so tiny obstacle.
Back when the couple's high profile divorce was in its first stages, a restraining order on the transfer of their assets was put in place automatically, therefore still barring the 46-year-old star from being able to sell her interests in the company.
According to the news outlet, the hold on their assets is "a standard thing courts do in cases like these" and apparently the Tomb Raider star may possibly already have a deal on the table. Her attorneys note they contacted the Pitt's legal team over this as well in hopes of resolving things without needing a formal hearing, but she says her ex's lawyer said he'd get back to her on it. Jolie says she was worried about losing the deal in the meantime so she went ahead and asked the judge to intervene, the site reported.
The former Hollywood power couple finalized their purchase of Chateau Miraval and Vineyards in Provence, France back in 2011 for an alleged "$60 million."
As the silver screen siren is looking to move on financially from the Once Upon A Time In Hollywood actor, she is already making progress in moving on in the romance department.
According to a source, "It’s dawned on Angie that she’s missing adventure and excitement in her life. So when her ex-husband Jonny [Lee Miller] got in touch recently and invited her to hang out, she threw caution to the wind and said why the heck not!"
"They have come together at a time when they’re both single and have lived and experienced life — good, bad and ugly. They care a lot for each other. Jonny is even planning to fly out to L.A. in the very near future," the source went on to say.
