Recently, a passionate and painful email sent by Jolie to her ex-husband was leaked. As revealed by the website ‘Entertainment Tonight’, the message was written in January 2021 and also makes reference to the control of the winery purchased by them when they were still a couple.
Their romance began in 2006. They exchanged rings in 2014 in an intimate ceremony at the winery itself. They broke up in 2016 and signed the divorce in 2019. Pitt and Jolie are the parents of six children together: Maddox, 21 years old; Pax, 18 years old; Zahara, 17 years old; Shiloh, 16 years old; and twins Vivienne and Knox, 14 years old.
In the email, Jolie explains to her ex her motivations behind the decision to sell her stake in the winery. She claims to have been crying when writing the text, because of her affective memories, and regrets that the place has become “an enterprise centered around alcohol”.
“It’s where we brought the twins home and where we got married, with a plaque in my mother’s memory,” Jolie wrote, referring to her youngest children, Knox and Vivienne. “A place that held the promise of what could be and where I thought I would grow old. Even now it’s impossible to write this without crying. I will treasure my memories of what it was a decade ago.”

“But it’s also the place that marks the beginning of the end for our family – and an alcohol-centric business,” Jolie continued, referring to Pitt’s struggle with alcoholism. “I was hoping that somehow it could become something that would bring us together and we would find light and peace. Now I see how you really wanted me out and you will probably be happy to get this email.”
