Brad Pitt has decided to buy his family and wife, Angelina Jolie, a sleek and pristine yacht for the grand sum of $7.5 million.
Pitt was able to make the purchase after he sold a share in his French vineyard at Chateau Miraval to the winemaker, Marc Perrin. It’s safe to say though that he could probably have afforded it without this sale.
Microsoft co-founder, Paul Allen, one of Brad’s close friends, is going to help him charter the 75ft yacht out to wealthy families when he is away filming.
Pitt, Jolie and their six children recently set up their home in the south of France, where they live in their huge estate, Chateau Miraval.
A source told The Sun, “Brad’s always wanted a classic sail yacht and this one is perfect. It sleeps eight but you can have more on board if you are just going out for a day.”
The insider continued, “He loves the idea of taking the kids out around the islands along the coast of the South of France near St. Tropez.”
The 12 Monkeys star isn’t afraid to splash his hard earned cash. Last August he bought his 11 year-old son, Maddox, a motorbike from Rusilip, Germany, the Suzuki DRZ-125, that can reach speeds of 50 miles per hour.
One source told E! News, “He wants the boys to be able to ride them on private land. It’ll be a fun thing for them to do, and obviously he has a real passion for bikes which he’d like to pass on.”
It’s also been rumoured that Pitt and Jolie are just weeks away from finally getting married. According to Now magazine, Pitt is prepared to spend around $2.5 million of the ceremony, and picked up a wedding licence last month, leaving them just 90 days to final exchange their vows.
