Now Angelina 45 has claimed that the separation was for the sake of her six childrens welfare.I separated for the wellbeing of my family. It was the right decision she insisted.She told Vogue Global Network I continue to focus on their healing.She and Brad are biological parents to Shiloh Vivienne and Knox but also cared for three adopted children during their partnership Maddox Pax and Zahara.
The actress explained Some have taken advantage of my silence and the children see lies about themselves in the media but I remind them that they know their own truth and their own minds. The former Hollywood couple have been apart for six years but sadly the split still seems to be looming large in the background for them after Brad announced his intention to sue her.The star has claimed that she sought to inflict harm on him intentionally and that she damaged the reputation of their co owned wine brand by selling shares to a stranger with poisonous associations and intentions. The pair had bought the French company Chateau Miraval for an undisclosed sum that sources have estimated at $25 million.
As part of the purchase they received a vast home and vineyard in Correns France which was the site of their 2014 wedding.However it all turned sour for the couple after just two years of marriage and they divorced.Angelina still had a 50% stake in the company when she sold her shares to a spirits manufacturer controlled by a Russian oligarch.Brad argues that the decision has damaged the reputation of the business and has blasted her decision to sell without his consent.Documents filed by his legal team state Jolie pursued and then consummated the purported sale in secret purposely keeping Pitt in the dark and knowingly violating Pitts contractual rights.
