image for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's '$400m superyacht' purchase is a spoof says shipyard
Brad and Ange can afford to rent this baby but not stump up a shedload of $$$s for a custom built yacht

New York - "These guys just don't have that kind of spare cash lying around," a spokesperson for SuperMegaYachts.com said today, "the whole dumb story is a pile of crap."

The rebuttal comes after an Irish Sunday newspaper claimed Brad and Ange had just shelled out four hundred million dollars buying a brand new superyacht plus another $350,000 kitting it out.

A picture of a reconditioned teardown rustbucket accompanied the story which claimed the new superyacht is to be the Jolie-Pitt family's new floating home.

Commenting on the headline a former captain of Russian mobster Roman Abramovich's floating behemoth Eclipse said the Pitt/Jolies' credit rating is hardly in the same class as the world's leading bonafide superyacht owning cabal.

"These guys are more junk bond kinda players," Dim Eatery Pissov said.

"We reckon they've only got about $75m spare cash."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
