It seems that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have had a change of heart and are no longer selling their 35-bedroom winery estate Chateau Miraval. CelebrityInsider revealed that Brad and Angelina took the French compound off the market and have decided to use the property to their advantage rather than sell it off or let it sit idle. Some are hoping that the Chateau Miraval news means that Brad and Angelina might be getting back together. So far, it looks like that is not the case, but this may be proof they are in better communication now than the famous couple has been in months.

The huge French estate was purchased by the Jolie-Pitt family back in 2008, and it was reported that they wanted their twins, Vivienne and Knox to be French and they often took all of their children to the huge winery to spend time.

As it turns out, the couple’s six children reportedly love the “castle.” It turns out that whether or not Brad and Angelina ever plan to reconcile and drop the divorce filing, they are no longer selling Chateau Miraval and instead, plan to use the property as a means to make money that they will invest in the future of their children.
