“I will treasure my memories of who we were”: The message was sent by Angelina Jolie in January 2021 and is now part of one of the ongoing trials between the two ex-spouses.
The legal battle between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt over the sale of Chateau Miraval brought to light an email written by the actress to her ex-husband in January 2021, when the couple had broken up for six years.
The words sent by Angelina Jolie to Brad Pitt were made public in one of the documents filed in court by the actress where, between the lines, Angelina’s desire to get away from the activity that was carried out at the winery created together with Brad at times of their union, born on the set of Mr. & Mrs Smith in 2004 and then ending in 2016, after 11 years of love and six children (Maddox, Zahara, Shiloh, Pax and the twins Knox and Vivienne).
A heartbreaking email from Angelina Jolie in which it seems to be quite evident not only that the conflicts between the two former spouses have been going on for a long time but also that the actress of The Tourist (whose cast also featured Johnny Depp ) has calibrated his words very well in cold and rational writing.
The message begins with Jolie, who reveals that she has decided to “write down” her thoughts “so as not to get excited”, then carefully describes her decision to sell the Chateau Miraval winery, which she was and is still the owner also Pitt.
“It is the place where we brought the twins home and where we got married on a plaque in memory of my mother,” wrote Angelina Jolie, whose new film Without Blood will see her return to directing, “a place that has kept the promise of what could be and where I thought I would grow old. Even now, I can’t write these words without crying. I will treasure my memories of what it was ten years ago”, Angelina Jolie continued in her touching email made of good memories, pain and sorrow for what could have been and was not.

Angelina Jolie’s message to Brad Pitt
“But it is also the place that marks the beginning of the end of our family; it’s an alcohol-focused business,” admits Angelina about Pitt’s struggle with addiction. “I had hoped that somehow it could become something that might hold us together and where we could find light and peace. Now I understand that you wanted me to leave. Presumably, you will be happy to receive this email “, continues the Eternals actress who, this summer, made a surprise appearance with her daughter Shiloh Jolie-Pitt at the Maneskin Circus concert. Maximum.
“I am hurt by the decisions that have been made that show no interest in sharing the business or fundamentally changing it into something that would be healthier for our children,” continued Pitt’s ex-wife explaining how Brad would have made many choices without. Questioning her, becoming an involuntary spectator of “many reckless behaviours, of cash spent in ways that I would not have approved and of choices about which I have not been consulted”.
An injured Angelina Jolie transpires from this email, especially regarding the lack of tact that Brad Pitt would have had towards his children in promoting the alcohol that the family winery himself produces.
“I was shocked by the recent images released for the sale of alcohol. I find it irresponsible, and it isn’t something I would like children to see. Those photos jogged my memory of the painful moments “, continued the actress, about the state of intoxication of her ex-husband during the now famous flight that was taking the Jolie-Pitt from Paris to California, during which Brad allegedly attacked his wife. And son Maddox.
“I can’t be involved, publicly or privately, in an alcohol-based business when it is alcohol that has damaged our family so deeply,” continues Angelina before offering the actor two options: to sell Chateau Miraval or “that you, the Perrin family or your collaborators buy my share completely.”

“Whatever it is, I think we have to move forward to heal so that we can focus on how to reunite our family,” said Angelina, still hoping that the relationship could be mended despite the great disappointment.
“I can’t begin to express how upsetting it is for me to get to this point. Your relationship with business and alcohol is painfully clear. I wish you all the simplest for the activity. I sincerely hope that the youngsters will feel differently towards Miraval when they are older and that they will visit you there “, continued the actress before concluding with a lapidary:” Miraval, for me, died in September 2016, and everything I’ve seen over the years has sadly confirmed this. Unfortunately, Angie. ‘
