Ellen DeGeneres and her wife Portia De Rossi have reportedly bought Brad Pitt’s Malibu mansion for $12 million.
It appears that Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi may have gotten special mate rates, as they purchased the property for $2 million under the asking price.
The new purchase comes as Ellen DeGeneres, 53, just put her $49 million Beverly Hills compound up for sale and is now looking for something smaller.
Brad Pitt’s mansion consists of two separate houses, a pool, a tennis court and expansive lush gardens.
The sprawling 4,100 square foot property also has private beach access and is set back off the Pacific Coast Highway by a long private driveway.
The main house has four bedrooms and four baths, a large chef’s kitchen with stainless steel appliances, bamboo floors, three fire places and a top of the range security system.
The mansion has had extensive renovations in the past couple of years with an additional story added by the environmentally conscious designer Christopher R. Sorensen.
The house was just one part of a property portfolio belonging to Brad and Angelina Jolie that also includes homes in Malibu, Los Angeles, New Orleans, France and Italy.
No one knows why they chose to sell the property, which is set into a hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
