This French Quarter mansion in New Orleans, once home to Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, is heading to the auction block, Report informs referring to the New York Post.
Last asking $5.35 million, it will have a $1 million minimum bid at auction on December 11, said Scott Kirk, president and CEO of Interluxe Auctions, who is partnering with broker Brigitte Fredy of Latter & Blum. Previews begin in New Orleans on December 8.
Pitt and Jolie bought the home in 2007 for $3.5 million, cash, via the Mondo Bongo Trust, named after a song by Clash singer Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros that was used in one of the couple’s “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” scenes, according to reports.
Pitt was involved - as a producer and star - of films shot on location in Louisiana, including “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” and “12 Years A Slave.”
The home sale was shortly after Hurricane Katrina, when Pitt had launched the Make It Right Foundation to help build new homes for people who lost their homes in the flood.
