Ever since their late August wedding, it's impossible not to hear how much Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are loving newlywed life. Now, just over a month since the celebrity couple finally tied the knot, we've learned about nearly every detail of their romantic and intimate French countryside wedding. One thing we hadn't heard about, though, was whether or not the new Mr. and Mrs. Pitt exchanged gifts to commemorate the occasion.
As of yesterday evening, the rumor mill was churning with news that Angie did, in fact, gift her new husband with an amazing present in honor of their wedding: a coveted, 1952 "JB Champion Observatory" platinum watch, which the Daily Mail reports is worth more than $3 million. According to reports, the rare timepiece from the esteemed Swiss watchmaker Patek Philippe was inscribed with a short love note from Angie to Brad — "To Roly from Nessa," a nod to their characters in their upcoming drama By The Sea.
So did Angie really drop a small fortune on a watch for her new husband? We thought the spendy present seemed out of character for the philanthropic actress, so we investigated the story.
And it turns out our suspicions were correct: Brad is not the proud new owner of the pricey watch. Forbes is debunking the rumor, saying that while the watch did recently change hands, it was not sold to the high-profile actress. "Only moments ago was this confirmed NOT TRUE, though the watch has indeed been privately sold," Forbes reports.
Sorry, Brad, maybe you'll get a rare watch for your first anniversary!
