Elvira Reveals Brad Pitt’s Former Home was Haunted
Elvira, also known as Cassandra Peterson, has revealed that the Los Feliz home she sold to Brad Pitt in 1994 was “haunted.” Peterson, best known for her role as the spooky bombshell, shared how the eerie events began when she and her ex-husband, musician Mike Pierson, moved into the 29-room mansion. The couple even had a priest come in to do an exorcism, she said, after it got to a point where she really didn't know if she could keep living there. Despite this, Peterson revealed that Pitt was “very excited” about the prospect of owning the home, which he bought for a reported $1.7 million. Peterson added that she warned Pitt about the paranormal activity in the house, but he was “very excited” about it. Peterson later became Pitt's neighbor when she purchased a house next door. Their neighborly proximity led to some interesting encounters, including seeing Pitt train for his role in “Fight Club” in his garage.
The Los Feliz home was where Pitt and his ex-wife Angelina Jolie raised their six children – Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, and twins Knox and Vivienne – before splitting in 2016. After almost three decades of ownership and many renovations and expansions, Pitt sold the sprawling estate, located in the neighborhood of Los Feliz, for about $40 million. One of the properties belonged to an elderly man in his early nineties, so Pitt made a deal that allowed him to stay in his home.
Despite the spooky encounters, Peterson recalls Pitt as “wonderful” and “kind and sweet.” Peterson sold her property to Pitt for an estimated $1.7 million and later became his neighbor when she purchased a house next door. Peterson reminisced, adding that she was nine months pregnant with her now-28-year-old daughter, Sadie Pierson, when Pitt purchased the home from her. Amidst his ongoing legal woes with Jolie, Pitt has kindled a fresh romance with a 32-year-old jewelry designer named Ines de Ramon. According to reports, the couple had a romantic evening in Paris following the 2023 César Awards on February 24th.
