We Vant to Be Alone: Pitt-Jolie Buy Island off Dubai
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie beat the paparazzi, buy Ethiopia-shaped, man-made luxury island according to reports.
HOLLYWOOD, CA (RUSHPRNEWS) November 15, 2007 â€” If you canâ€™t beat the paparazzi, ban â€˜em. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have bought their own island, but not a little slice of the tropics like Johnny Deppâ€™s Bahamian getaway or Marlon Brandoâ€™s Polynesian reef. The it-coupleâ€™s hideout is a man-made island in the shape of Ethiopia that is part of an ambitious luxury development off the coast of Dubai, a newspaper reported Wednesday.
Pitt and Jolie, whose sexy lizard queen in â€œBeowulfâ€ is getting whistles, intend to use the reclaimed piece of land to showcase environmental issues and encourage people to live a greener life, the Emirates Today newspaper said.
The coupleâ€™s purchase is part of cluster of 300 islands, shaped like a world map, that is gradually surfacing in waters off the booming Gulf emirate.
Representatives of the pair in the US and other reliable sources had confirmed the purchase had gone ahead. But state-owned Nakheel, the firm behind the development called â€œThe Worldâ€, declined to comment, the paper said.
The coupleâ€™s two-year-old daughter Zahara was born in Ethiopia. Billionaire businessman Richard Branson and musician Rod Stewart are also reported to have bought plots on the development.
Prices for the islands range from six million to 36 million dollars.
The bustling emirate of Dubai, which is a member of the UAE federation, is busy positioning itself as a global leisure and finance hub through The World and several other mega-projects including the worldâ€™s tallest tower.
