Now, Brad Pitt’s legal team is accusing Angelina Jolie of intentionally harming her ex-husband by selling his share of the company without his consent, according to documents filed Friday in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

The Russian businessman is accused of having “ruthless business tactics and dubious professional associations”, which in turn “endangers the reputation of the brand that the actor so carefully built”. Brad Pitt’s legal representatives maintain that Yuri Shefler “has gained notoriety through vicious business tactics and dubious professional associations.”
“Jolie has tried to force Pitt to associate with a stranger and, worse yet, a stranger with poisonous associations and intentions.”
