Famous actress Jennifer Aniston is reportedly ready to sue Hollywood actor and ex-partner Brad Pitt for $100 million. The legal battle concerns the production company that Pitt and Aniston founded in the early 2000s and called Plan B.
Now Pitt wants to sell the company, but Aniston disputes his right to the money and is suing him for $100 million. Pitt is already fighting a legal battle with ex-wife Angelina Jolie, so the new issue will only make matters worse.
The production company did pass into Pitt's hands when the couple split, but Aniston believes she never received credit for helping to found the company. Apparently, principle is more important to her than money. Plan B has had successes, including The Departed, 12 Years A Slave and Moonlight, all of which won Oscars.
Also, Plan B has credits on the films "Troy" and "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory." The source claims that Aniston expects at least recognition and participation in the sale, as well as the option to work with the new owner.
"This is not just about money. As far as Jen is concerned, what is just as important is the principle. The thing is, she was a co-creator and founder of Plan B, and while it technically went to Brad, she hasn't gotten the credit she deserved for building it from the ground up," a source close to the actress told 'Heat World'
"Jen expects at least recognition and involvement in the event Brad's sale goes through, plus the option to work with whoever takes over. If Brad wants to make it right with Jennifer, he'll hand her a check for $100 million, which would be a drop in the ocean if the sale goes through.
