Brad Pitt is an amazing actor well-known for his dashing good looks and epic portrayal of Achilles in Troy. The actor/producer is making headlines not for his brilliant acting or production but a curious case different from Benjamin Button. Mr Pitt was being sued for supposedly conning a woman. The plaintiff was seeking $100,000 in compensation.
Although most headlines including ours make it appear as if there is a case, clearly there isn’t one. Brad Pitt sued sounds more catchy than dismissed lawsuit. A Texan businesswoman, Kelli Christina, attempted to sue Brad Pitt for supposedly conning her out of undisclosed sums of money. Christina says that a conman pretending to be him, Pitt, reached out to her online in 2018 and asked her to organise fundraisers for his home-building foundation — Make It Right. Apparently the impostor agreed to attend each event, but would cancel last minute after collecting an appearance fee.
Pitt requested that the case be thrown out of court to which his request was granted. However, Christina claims that she developed a special connection with the scammer and had discussions of marriage. In addition, Christina says that she’ll appeal the judgment because she had reached out to Pitt in the summer of 2019 regarding the impostor. She added that Mr Pitt ignored her because she wrote to his attorney, Los Angeles residence, Plan B entertainment (film company) and Make It Right Foundation — no response was given.
Christina blames Mr Pitt for making it too easy for impostors to con his fans and that there’s nothing he’s doing about it.
This is indeed quite bizarre. Did she just wake up one morning and thought to herself: I’ll have Brad Pitt sued because I want him to marry me?
