As Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s divorce rumors continue to swirl, the “Fight Club” actor has turned to shopping, according to a report by Radar Online. The gossip website said that Pitt spent millions on buying antique for his collection.
“Brad turned up at one art and furniture show, spent $33 million in an hour, then just got back on his plane and left,” Bill Ketterer, the owner of DIGSmodern vintage showroom, told Radar Online. “He kinda knew what he was looking for and he got it.”
Ketterer, who is reported to be friends with the 52-year-old actor, told the website that Pitt often visits the store, which is located in Pomona, California. According to the report, art deco, modern and contemporary pieces can be found in Pitt’s collection.
“When Brad comes to the warehouse, I don’t advise him,” Ketterer reportedly said. “He usually has an interior designer with him or other people, and he says to them, ‘Hey, just wait in the car.’”
The Radar Online report also said that while Pitt spends millions on his antique collection, he and wife Jolie are saving by listing their New Orleans house on the market. Recently, the two were reportedly also seen flying in economy class from Paris to Nice, France, with their six children.
The report comes as the couple's divorce rumors and Jolie’s health issues make headlines. The actress is facing rumors related to health problems, triggered by her weight loss.
Gossip Cop, a celebrity rumor debunking website, dismissed a report by Life&Style magazine that said the two have been “leading separate lives.” The magazine had also reported that the two were “hanging on” and putting aside the rumored marriage troubles to focus on Jolie’s health issues.
However, Jolie and Pitt, who have been together for over 10 years, were recently spotted together on several occasions, dismissing reports about their marital troubles.
