So when are they tying the knot?
After reports that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were getting married at their estate in the south of France last Saturday, the media was on high alert. However, we sent an X17 photographer to check out Chateau Miraval last week and he told us there was absolutely nothing going on!
Today we spotted a half dozen construction trucks on the property, and though there is still scaffolding on one of the main houses, it appears as though renovations of the chapel and reception hall have been completed. Brangelina have also expanded their vineyard and added a small pool to their 35-bedroom, $60-million estate ... getting ready to entertain some guests, perhaps?
While Michael Latz, the mayor of the village of Correns, says that Jolie and Pitt will not be getting married this weekend ("I don't know who they are. It's nonsense. I've had 50 phone calls and I am telling everyone to get lost because this is tiresome and irritates me," he told local papers), he didn't rule out a wedding later this year! After announcing their engagement in April it was reported that Brangelina were preparing for fall 2012 nuptials, so it seems like the French tabloids might have jumped the gun when they reported that there would be an August wedding.
Pitt and Jolie previously said they wouldn't tie the knot until gay couples could legally be married, but the actor told The Hollywood Reporter earlier this year they may not be able to wait that long. "We made this declaration some time ago that we weren't going to do it till everyone can," Pitt said. "But I don't think we'll be able to hold out. It means so much to my kids, and they ask a lot. And it means something to me, too, to make that kind of commitment."
Looks like it'll be happening soon!
