Brad Pitt’s $500,000 shopping spree

Brad Pitt shoppingWhile awaiting the birth of his twins with Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt has been sparing no expense while shopping for furniture for the new French mansion they’re leasing. At the Design Miami Basel fair in Switzerland he picked a hollow white marble rococo-style table by Dutch designer Jeroen Verhoeven for $293,000; bought two Ron Arad chairs from New York-based gallery Sebastian + Barquet; and ordered a rug made of aluminum thread, which sells for $175 a square foot. In total it’s estimated Pitt spent over $500,000. Yep, a cool half million. It’s true — Brad Pitt is stinking rich.

    I wonder how much they spent to buy those children they “adopted”?

  2. tributegirl • June 5, 2008 @ 3:29 PM

    That’s a cool $250,000 for each baby, and they aren’t even born yet! Must be nice!

    Hey if you got it why not

  4. tributegirl • June 5, 2008 @ 5:29 PM

    Wish I had it. The money, I mean.

  5. Nancy • June 5, 2008 @ 5:33 PM

    Me too!! Every last little penny of it!! 🙂

    Why? So you could be famous too and have things written about you here while people with nothing better to do sit around and make snide comments about you? No thanks. I’ll take poor and unknown over rich and famous any day!

  7. tributegirl • June 6, 2008 @ 7:25 AM

    I’m not interested in being famous, I just wanna be rich rich RICH!!!

  8. Nancy • June 6, 2008 @ 10:57 AM

    Norma, I only mentioned the money not the fame! And, seeing as you are doing such “better” things with YOUR time, could you give us some pointers on how to make the most out of our spare time??

  9. tammy • June 6, 2008 @ 1:48 PM

    First of all with a combined income for brad and angelina they can afford all these kids, this big house, and all the stuff that they buy…they also donate alot of their time and money to charities and kids who have nothing.. so its not like their behaving like rich snobs.. it might seem like it but they do good things for other people not just themselves…

  10. Nancy • June 6, 2008 @ 4:24 PM

    Yes, they do donate alot. That is very nice of them to do. I would too, if I had that kind of cash!

  11. Poppa John's in Exile • June 6, 2008 @ 4:53 PM

    Well that just seems to be in keeping with the amount of money they spent on the mansion. You don’t put shit from IKEA in a castle, folks!! Sorry!!!

    With people starving and homeless in the US and the world in general it’s a real shame he can only think to spend half a million on furnishings for his RENTED home now isn’t it.
    He should be ashamed of himself. They adopt these children who were less fortunate being “do gooders” then they blow that much on furnishings for them. Gotta love it!

  13. Jo-Anne • June 7, 2008 @ 6:34 PM

    Who cares how much they spend on furniture? I am sure many of us spend money on things others wouldn’t and so what? They seem to spend a lot of time and money on many worthy causes other than their furniture. I’m not even a fan of either of them, yet I can recognize they do help many people – and surely adopting any child, saving them from a life of poverty, etc. is nothing but a good move.

    If they chose to look out at the world thru their rose coloured Gucci’s, at least they’re giving back a little (or a lot) to those less fortunate.

  14. tributegirl • June 7, 2008 @ 6:34 PM

    Why shouldn’t they spend it on what they want?
    It’s their friggin money, they earned it, they can do whatever the h*ll they want with it! They donate a ton of money to charity, which they don’t have to do, so why shouldn’t they get to enjoy their money too? I don’t think they should be ashamed of themselves, I think they should be quite proud of themselves!

  15. tributegirl • June 7, 2008 @ 6:35 PM

    If I had their money, I’d be buying whatever I want too!

  16. Jo-Anne • June 7, 2008 @ 6:37 PM

    tributegirl, right on

  17. tributegirl • June 7, 2008 @ 6:57 PM

    Wow Jo-Anne, you actually agree with something I said?

  18. Nancy • June 7, 2008 @ 7:01 PM

    MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMmmmmmmm…..wah!

  19. Jo-Anne • June 7, 2008 @ 7:21 PM

    tributegirl,

    If you look back your comment actually followed mine, agreeing with what I said – so, think about it.
    yes. curious, why do you jump on Nancy’s train all the time, you seem above that petty stuff.

  20. tributegirl • June 7, 2008 @ 7:36 PM

    Jo-Anne, ok, I just read over the comments, and yes, we do agree on this topic, I was just quite surprised to have you say something to me that wasn’t nasty. You have done that several times.
    I don’t “jump on Nancy’s train”, it just really irritates me when she, or I, or anyone else, gets a nasty strip torn off them just for posting their opinion. I think we should all be able to post our opinion, no matter what it is, and not get torn apart for it. And actually, if you look through the articles, most of the time everyone starts out posting their opinions, and as soon as Nancy does, everyone rips her. I don’t think that’s right, so I come to her defense, just like I would for anybody if I thought they were getting unfair treatment. I know everybody on here can defend themselves, but it’s just my nature to get fired up when foolishness happens.

    IWould buy GOLD!

  22. Big • June 8, 2008 @ 11:16 AM

    I hope he goes bankrupt like MC Hammer and Michael Jackson. Don’t forget the yacht that he bought.

  23. Tayderhead • June 9, 2008 @ 3:03 AM

    Nice that they wanna adopt kids but hey, can’t they find any needy kids in the USA? Methinks they could put their charity efforts to better use taking care of the kids in their own country stead of bringing more of em over. No shortage of immigrants over here already.

  24. tributegirl • June 9, 2008 @ 9:30 AM

    Yeah, but they aren’t only interested in America, they are interested in helping people all over the world.

  25. Michelle • June 9, 2008 @ 3:43 PM

    Hey everyone, we don’t know anything about these human beings except from what we read. Jo-Anne you are totally right on and I like the way you think. Yes, they help people in the U.S. but why not do what they are doing, the kids deserve to live in a better environment don’t they? Angelina and Brad do alot of good and you gotta like that. I just wanted to say that It’s not my place to wonder why they did this or that and judge it for that matter. We have no idea what kind of life they had before they became actors. Let’s not forget that they are actors but also very human.

  26. tributegirl • June 12, 2008 @ 7:19 PM

    Ok then, but what is your opinion on this article?

  27. Sue • June 20, 2008 @ 3:06 PM

    Awsome comment Tammy, and very very true! They are both wonderful people who do good things with their time & money…not just spend it on themselves.

  28. Rafael Montilla • June 30, 2008 @ 3:02 PM

    The piece de resistance, however, was Dutch Designer Jeroen Verhoevens Rococo-style coffee table fashioned from hollow white marble.

  29. Rafael Montilla • June 30, 2008 @ 3:09 PM

    They spend $500.000 on modern furniture, and the Media pay them $150.000 for the News, Not a bad deal.
