More media reports are trickling out today about super-celebrity couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie having bought the house at 521 Governor Nicholls Street in New Orleans earlier this month. And a media account from the Associated Press this afternoon certainly confirms what we had previously reported, earlier today, about Pitt’s trusts. Pitt used his Mondo Bongo trust to buy his house at 32316 Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu in 2005, and the Associated Press article that we’ve linked to above notes that the Mondo Bongo Trust also was the buyer of the house at 521 Governor Nicholls Street. (The AP was able to send a reporter to view the public records on the sale; that information had not yet been updated in the public records database that we accessed.) We’re not certain why the AP isn’t willing yet to definitively report that the Mondo Bongo Trust is a trust belonging to Pitt. This Chicago Tribune article from October 2005 that we wrote, about Vince Vaughn, Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt, was the first piece anywhere to identify the Mondo Bongo Trust as belonging to Brad: Chicago Tribune October 21, 2005 Friday RedEye Edition Welcome home, Vince; Rich and famous grab real estate around Chicago BYLINE: with Bob Goldsborough, a Redeye Special Contributor. SECTION: Pg. 27 LENGTH: 502 words Several months ago, actor and Lake Forest native Vince Vaughn told RedEye that he was moving back to Chicago and that he had signed a contract to buy a condo in River North but hadn't taken possession of it yet. Now, Vaughn officially is a Chicagoan. Through a trust, he recently paid $1,425,500 for the condo unit in River North. And Vaughn, 35, apparently occupies the condo as his exclusive residence, since he is reported to have recently sold his previous house, in the Oaks neighborhood in the Los Feliz section of L.A., for close to its $3,995,000 asking price. He has owned that 3,287-square-foot, four-bedroom house, which was built in 1930 and sits on more than a half-acre, since 1999, when he bought it through his Midwest Trust for $1,575,000, according to public records. Interestingly, the L.A. house Vaughn just sold is just a few houses east of a compound that is still owned by Brad Pitt, ex-husband of Vaughn's apparent new love, Jennifer Aniston. Although Pitt and Aniston, who divorced Oct. 2, recently listed their Beverly Hills mansion for $28 million, Pitt still owns several other properties. Most recently, he bought a 4,088-square-foot oceanfront house in Malibu, Calif., through his Mondo Bongo Trust in March for $8.41 million. Pitt's compound near Vaughn's former house contains three houses, the most significant of which is a 5,338-square-foot house that he bought for $1.7 million in 1994.
