Nice thought, but Brad Pitt may have to do without a heart-shaped island — for now. Rumors that Angelina Jolie purchased a $19.7 million heart-shaped island for his 50th birthday are apparently false, Page Six reported on Tuesday, Nov. 26. See pics of the island here!
According to the New York Post, the stunning Petra Island — about 50 miles north of Manhattan — has yet to be purchased. Owners of the retreat apparently listed the huge piece of land four months ago, but no one has made an offer.
"I don't have any idea where that [report about Jolie] came from," Donna Massaro, daughter of owners Joseph and Barbara Massaro, told Page Six. "The family threw it out there to see if anyone was interested, and so far no [potential buyers] have [come forward]."
Jolie, 38, may not be purchasing a new getaway for Pitt (who turns 50 on Dec. 18), but she has shown her affection toward her soon-to-be hubby in other ways. "My love," she referred to Pitt, as she accepted the Humanitarian Award at the 5th Annual Governors Ball in Hollywood on Nov. 16. "Your support and guidance makes everything that I do possible." The couple was also joined by their 12-year-old son Maddox for the special occasion.
As for Pitt, the Hollywood hunk is currently still working on his new World War II film, Fury, in England, but is set to return to spend time with Jolie and their six children in the upcoming weeks — even if the backdrop isn't a heart-shaped island. He will "go home" for the Christmas holidays, an insider tells Us Weekly.
