Brad Pitt ‘Spends $100k on Fancy Gerbil Cage’
Posted by Adam
Brad Pitt clearly isn’t feeling the pinch — he’s just spent a whopping $100,000 on a home for his kids’ gerbils!
Pitt — who raises six children with partner Angelina Jolie — reportedly oversaw the construction and design of the project, which boasts tunnels, platforms, seesaws and mazes.
“Brad pores over architectural journals like other people pore over newspapers,” a source told British newspaper The Sun. “He had so much fun putting the run together with his kids.
“It’s incredibly complex and cost a lot but Brad’s more than happy with any activity that can combine his two passions — his kids and architecture.”
The rodents – who will live at the family’s mansion in the South of France – were chosen by Maddox, eight, Pax, five, after their superstar parents took them to a local pet store last week.
“The boys were really keen to get the gerbils and it was Angelina who reached into the cage to pet them before a store worker got them out,” an onlooker said.
It was recently claimed that Jolie was furious with the amount of money Pitt spends on frivolous nonsense.
