Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi Buy Brad Pitt’s Mansion

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi have snapped up a Malibu mansion from none other than Brad Pitt.

The beachfront home cost the couple a cool $12 million – quite a drop from their $49m dollar first home, which was put on the market in 2010.

Pitt originally bought the mansion for $4.8 million in 2005, after separating with Jennifer Aniston. He listed the home last year for $13.5 million.

What did DeGeneres, 53, and de Rossi, 38, get for their clams? Well, the home is said to have four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and 4,000 square feet of space. The abode overlooks the Pacific Ocean and includes a pool and tennis court.

The property also boasts private beach access, and includes two separate houses.

According to a source close to the couple:

“It was a quick transaction and Brad’s stuff is already out. Ellen and Portia would like to start using the house immediately.”
