Inside Brad Pitt’s Spooky ‘Haunted’ Mansion
Here’s more about the possibly-haunted mansion Pitt calls home and who he bought the estate from.
Brad Pitt is one of the most famous actors in the world. He’s been an A-list celebrity for decades and over that time has amassed an impressive real estate portfolio. One of his properties is pretty unique considering that the former owner, who is also a well-known star, claims it was haunted.
“I have a chapter in my book about this house I lived in called Briarcliff Manor… My ex-husband and I moved in and weird stuff started happening,” Cassandra Peterson, better known by her alter-ego Elvira, told Inverse.com.
Pitt purchased the home from a famous mistress
In 1994, the Fight Club actor purchased an estate in the Los Feliz section of Los Angeles from TV personality Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. Turns out, there were things going on in the house that were a little too spooky even for the horror maven.
She continued: “I mean first thing, I was unpacking boxes on the second floor. And I had told the movers to not take anything to the third floor because I didn’t know what we were going to do [with that room]. So I’m unpacking boxes, and I hear these footsteps across the ceiling like clump, clump, clump, clump, clump, and then, clunk, clunk, clunk. I look up and I could actually see vibrations as this person walked across the room. I go running up the stairs and say, ‘Hey, I told you guys not to…’ and I’m stopped in my tracks. I see there’s nobody up there. There was nowhere to hide up there. It was just one big empty room.
The Queen of Halloween added: “I sold that house to Brad Pitt. He still owns it and loves those stories.”
“As time went on, more and more things kept happening. This included seeing ghosts two times very, very clearly. I was talking to the damn things like they were real people. And then they just kind of vanished before my eyes. Things went on and on there. I got to the point where I said, I got to get out of here I can’t deal with this anymore. We got a Native American Shaman to come in and save the house and clear it.”
Pitt bought the estate for $1.7 million and haunted or not it’s a place he has called home for more than two decades.
