Did Brad Pitt repurchase his old Beverly Hills mansion to gift to Jennifer Aniston?


Lord, this story is such a trip down memory lane. I’m actually going to solely use my memory banks on this one, because my mind is a steel trap for completely useless details like “what Jennifer Aniston said about the Beverly Hills home she shared with Brad Pitt.” Come with me on a nostalgic gossip journey…the years in question were 2003-05. In 2003, Brad and Jennifer were happily married and Brad had just read a script for a film called Mr. and Mrs. Smith. He and Jennifer were renovating a huge Beverly Hills mansion to HIS specifications – Nu Modern or whatever, lots of concrete and minimalism. Jennifer said nice things at the time, but you could tell that she missed her cute little bachelorette bungalow in the Hollywood Hills, which is where they lived when they were renovating the Beverly Hills mansion.

Once Angelina Jolie happened and Jennifer and Brad split up, they decided to just sell the Beverly Hills mansion. It had taken years of renovation and it was supposed to be their “family home,” but they sold it and I think they just split the money. In September 2005, Aniston covered Vanity Fair and among her other disses, she complained about Brad’s design aesthetic (something about how she can now have a comfortable couch) and she didn’t seem particularly sad about selling the Beverly Hills mansion. What does this trip down memory lane have to do with anything? Well, reportedly – LMAO – Brad bought the old mansion again, and he gave it to Jennifer. For her birthday. Oh my God.

Brad Pitt’s schmoozing of ex-wife Jennifer Aniston reportedly hit new heights on her 50th birthday, when he revealed his $79million (£60.57million) gift. Brad and Jennifer called time on their marriage in 2005 but it has been rumoured that Brad still carries a torch for his ex and a reconciliation could be in the offing.

Jennifer split from her husband Justin Theroux in March 2018 but it was still a shock when Brad turned up at her 50th birthday celebrations. Plus, when it came to gifts, not many could have trumped what Brad allegedly sorted out for Jen. The house they used to share in Beverly Hills was on the market and when they originally split, sources close to Jennifer said that “losing their dream home worsened the heartache of their divorce and it was one of her biggest regrets not buying Brad out”.

Well, it seems that this is not a problem now as Brad has apparently agreed to splash out $79million to buy the house back, just so that he can give it to Jennifer. The actress was reportedly emotional when she found out his intentions, which came after the pair apparently reminisced about their times together in the marital home.

[From The Daily Mirror]

I mean… this is utter horse excrement. They can’t even get the little things right – Jennifer wasn’t surprised that Brad turned up at her birthday party, she was the one who invited him. And if Brad did repurchase the home and tried to give it to her, I guarantee she wouldn’t even want it. That’s not her style anymore – she’s either Malibu-beachy or ‘70s shag-pad. She got that concrete minimalism out of her life and I have so much hope that she will never go back. But yeah, the only thing which could be possible is that Brad repurchased the house. But if he did that, I bet he wants it for himself.

    I can see him buying back the house; they did put a lot of work into it, and it did seem like it was mostly him/his ideas, so if you are looking to buy a Hollywood mansion, and there’s this one that you used to own and its basically still completely what you want in a Hollywood mansion – sure, buy it if you have the money.

    It would be really twisted if he gifted it to Jen though.

    • Tourmaline says:

      LOL yes it would be so twisted.
      If an ex suddenly gifted me a $79 million home I would also be “reportedly emotional” as this Daily Mirror (??) fictional short story says of Jen.

    • Sillychixk says:

      Lord, but they were a glorious couple.

  2. Lucia says:

    The tabloids fiercely want these two back together and that’s just weird. My question is why would Jennifer Aniston want Brad back? She can do so much better. They were a super boring couple anyways and he’s proven just how awful he can be.

    Besides, how stupid would it be to try and time travel back to 1998 and pretend like the 12 years with Angelina Jolie didn’t happen? If he truly did this I really would begin to question how creepy he is. That’d be some Sleeping with the Enemy style creepiness right there if he did. I can see him buying it for himself as a bachelor pad, though.

    Also the reason these stories irk me so much is because it gives off the suggestion that Jen was always Brad’s property in some respect. No. Just no. The tabloids need to stop with that nonsense.

    • Mia4s says:

      Not so weird. They’d sell a TON of papers/break the internet. And then the tabloids could get issues out of their “Miracle Baby!!”….and then their “Fight to save their love!…and then move on to the break up rumours and “IT’S OVER!!”

      Come to think of it they’ll probably do all of that without Pitt and Aniston getting back together anyway. And the magazines will sell. Because people are stupid. Thanks for coming to my Ted Talk. 😁

  3. Nicegirl says:

    Don’t backslide, Jennifer. Alone is better than a dirt bag, especially a dirt bag EX. Ex husband who cheated. Run, Jen!!

  4. babsjohnson says:

    I love that golden and white dress. Simpler times.

    • Esmerelda says:

      Yep, beautiful dress. Does anyone have the designer ID? It would be a great vintage find.
      And I don’t think this story is true, but I would love to see them back together, merely for the entertainment value!

      • Vizia says:

        Pretty sure it’s a Dior. I think Gisele wore the same or very similar dress at some event with Leo.

  5. Ali says:

    if Brad Pitt has $79 million dollars to spend on a house, it makes him look like an even bigger jerk for making Angelina go to court to get him to pay half of his kids expenses.


  6. Paloma says:

    Lmao, the magazines are really desperate

  7. Jensies says:

    Is this what rich people do? Is this a thing?

  8. Loopy says:

    $80 million….is that correct????

  9. Jess says:

    It wouldn’t surprise me if he did want her back, men always come crawling back eventually. He’s such a douche, hopefully she knows better by now.

  10. TheHeat says:

    Slow gossip day at the Daily Mirror…these articles must be kept in a folder entitled “FILLER” for times like this. Hopefully Harry & Meghan’s baby arrives soon.

  11. Clare says:

    Errrr if Brad’s team have a hand in this… are they stupid?

    He spent $79 million on a home/gift for his very wealthy ex wife, while publicly arguing with his other ex-wife and primary custodian of his six children, over child support?

    I mean, I know they want the Jen stans back on board…but…

    • Hmmm says:

      They are desperate to have her fans back. They don’t realize that Angie has a pretty sizable fanbase herself and we can’t stand him, lolololol

  12. Dttimes2 says:

    Not true LoL
    Despite the tabloid’s report being predicated on a false premise, Gossip Cop still checked in with a source close to Pitt, who confirms he’s not buying back his old Beverly Hills home.

  13. Skeptical says:

    Huvannes are like cockroaches. They never die.

  14. Liz says:

    I don’t understand that with all the marriages of convenience in this world that those two can’t just get it together for the public. They would be unstoppable. They seem to work well together in a partnership/business setting. If I was one of their managers I would be trying (and probably failing) to set this up, haha.

    • sommolierlady says:

      Maybe they don’t want to live in the past. Who the hell would want a man back who dumped them so publicly?

      Plus, this story is complete fiction.

  15. mk says:

    These people have too much money. My family needs access to healthcare, these people should be taxed at 90%.

    • Natalia says:

      Or at least return to the 70% tax rate that Reagan got rid of, along with his kitchen cabinet (the same POS’s who powered him into the California governorship prior to his presidency). And re-tax all his worshippers who have benefitted from it all these years.

  16. Halle says:

    Poor Jolie

    • Michelle says:

      @Halle poor Jolie indeed! Lol. She’s managed to get rid of that deadweight & looked happier ever since. Pitt & Aniston are well suited, they are CAA protected & have the public fooled by their BS goody goody image.

    • zozigr says:

      Poor jolie? She wanted this way.

  17. SM says:

    I love that second pic of them. The Brad+Jen classic. However, this story is fiction and these rumours of Brad and Jen still in love need to die already

    • Hmmm says:

      Hilarious. They were bland together. I’ll never understand why he’s seen as like the ultimate good looking guy. HE’s Ugly and uninteresting. but people really liked them together, huh? Rotflmao

      What really gets me is his lopsided nostrils. He had his nose thinned out but the dr didn’t do a good job because one nostril is bigger than the other. 🤣🤣🤣🤣

  18. Lynne says:

    I doubt it, the gift taxes she would have to pay to irs would be enormous

  19. Eliza says:

    Just creepy. I mean why would you want the house you shared with your ex after 10+ years have gone by and you have multiple houses you’ve already made your own.

    Nothing says trying to buying someone’s love like a mansion.

  20. Dark and Stormy says:

    Isn’t this the dude that hadn’t paid his child support and tried to get a loan (with interest) to count as support? Hmmm.

  21. anp says:

    These two are such overrated as actors and they are very boring people.

  22. SK says:

    Minimal concrete houses look good but are often really uncomfortable and unliveable. They are more to look at than live in.

  23. Fanny says:

    The house is not minimalist or modern. It is a French Chateau style house designed by architect Wallace Neff and built in the 1930s for two Golden Age movie stars. Brad probably did put uncomfortable couches in it though.

    It’s on the market again for $65 million, so it’s funny that Brad wants to pay $79 million, LOL.

    • lucy2 says:

      I remember that house, it was very pretty, and it pained me to think of Pitt trying to make it modern.

      This story is so hilariously fake though.

      • Hmmm says:

        He ruined the house he bought with Angelina in France. What we’ve seen of it is soooooo ugly and … plain. Who told him he was good at designing?

        I actually think angie has a better aesthetic than he does but the vibe was that she let him do whatever he wanted and she dealt with it.

        I’d be super interested in seeing how she would design a home now that he’s not around.

  24. Tuille says:

    I never realized before that they look like siblings, especially since her nose surgery. Same jawline & same coloring.

  25. Whim says:

    Hahaha, no, he’s not going to gift anyone a $79 million house!

    People are nostalgic for the ’90s and ’00 through these old Brad-and-Jen pics but I think they look so dated and bored (Jen looked happy; Brad looked bored) and as a couple they will never get back together. She would but he wouldn’t, is my guess. (And I say this as someone who doesn’t care for Angelina either).

  26. Shannon says:

    I mean, is she homeless or something? WTF kind of gift is that? “Hey, here’s the house we (mostly me) had built while I was cheating on you! Take me back?” He’s probably just looking into buying it (if even that part’s true) for himself and someone got creative. I hope that’s all it is, because I do think her and Angelina are both too good for him.

  27. SJR says:

    When will BP and his entire pr team come to accept that his days of being the Golden Boy of Hollywood are over?
    I’m serious.
    People his age know his personal life/relationship history, women who were fans are now 40-60 years old, IMO, and we have all dealt with his type IRL.
    People under 40 know who he is but I doubt they are buying tickets to his movies.

    This story has got to be complete bs.
    If JA is truly thinking of becoming involved with him again, after his public humiliation of her, she needs a boatload of therapy. I still remember her phrase “missing a sensitivity chip” when she spoke about BP after they split.
    I still think it’s weird how he seems to morph his looks to match his SO of the moment.

    And yes, I completely agree the enormously wealthy should be taxed at 50%.
    Most of them have more money than brains. In the case of the New England Pats owner, Kraft, he’s got more money than brains or class with his behaviour.

  28. serena says:

    I honestly think it was extremely bad taste gifting her the house that kinda represents their split. Also he’s really pathetic how he seems to cling to women of his past, almost as if desperate.
