The vast assets are owned by separate limited liability corporations, which control both sides, according to court papers which state that Miraval is owned by Quimicalum – a company Pitt originally owned his company. The 60% stake was held through Mondo Bongo. Meanwhile, while Jolie owns a 40% stake through her company Nouvel.

Boutras Jr. said: “We are seeking review in the California Supreme Court because the provisional judge, who was appointed by both parties and repeatedly renewed, was inappropriate. One with multiple witnesses and experts After a lengthy legal process, he was disqualified after a detailed, fact-based custody decision was provided.

The strategy would deprive parents of irreparable time with their children as judges disqualify for trivial reasons in the middle of their cases.
