Brad Pitt’s rosé champagne served at the 2023 Oscars ceremony
The 95th Academy Awards served Hollywood’s biggest stars expensive champagne produced by Brad Pitt’s cellar.
The bottle of sparkling pink champagne – costing $400 – was served at the Oscars for the first time since Pitt’s ex-wife Angelina Jolie publicly accused her former partner of abuse.
As insider La Fleur de Miraval reported, this year’s bubbly A-lister stemmed from a “meeting of the minds” between Pitt and the Perrin family, according to a press release, continuing a collaboration that began when Pitt and Jolie were still running their Domaine Château Miraval together.
However, the decision to choose a wine associated with the Bullet Train star has raised eyebrows in light of recent attempts by Hollywood to tackle abuse in the film industry.
For the uninitiated, Jolie sold her stake in Chateau Miraval in 2021 — where she married Pitt in 2014 — and claimed, in a court filing, that she refused to sell it to her former husband because of her alleged insistence that she sign “a non-disclosure”. agreement that would have contractually prohibited her from speaking out of court about Pitt’s physical and emotional abuse of her and their children,” The New York Times reported.
Jolie, in the court filing, claimed her former husband was verbally and physically abusive, alleging he smothered and hit their children during a robbery in 2016, the year she filed for divorce.
Meanwhile, Pitt has denied the allegations, which have been investigated by the FBI, and has not been charged with a crime.
