Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and their children left the East Bay and the Claremont Hotel and Spa on Monday, but reports of their doings while in town are still surfacing.
Many people saw Zahara and Shiloh swimming in the Claremont’s baby pool, with Brad at times and with bodyguards at other times. The Claremont apparently closed the pool to everyone else, according to a member of the hotel’s club. That didn’t sit too well with club members who had been trying to respect the family by acting casually around them.
On Sunday, Aug. 1, Tuesday, Aug. 3, Angelina and Pax, 6, Zahara, 5, and Shiloh, 4, spent a long time few minutes at the Rockridge Kids toy store on College Avenue, and left with a shopping bag, according to a clerk at Rockridge Kids. the online gossip site JustJared. Shiloh was photographed wearing a backwards Oakland A’s cap. Pitt was in town filming Moneyball, the Michael Lewis-penned story of Oakland A’s manager Billy Beane.
When they returned to the Claremont Hotel, (on Sunday) the family came in by a back entrance. Angelina was driven in a black Jaguar, followed by a large car with her kids and bodyguards. A bystander who glimpsed Jolie through the window said “she was the most beautiful woman” she had ever seen.
Update: Lots of people say Brangelina is still in town. I am willing to believe, but prove me wrong.
Update #2: I called Rockridge Kids and learned that Angelina and her children stopped by on Tuesday. I had said they left because a friend called the couple’s production company on Tuesday. (He was trying to get a product to Pitt.) The production company told him that Brangelina had left the East Bay.
Lesson learned: celebrity reporting is mostly made up of hearsay, thought-I-saws- and other erroneous information.
And here are some pictures showing the family on set with Pitt at the Oakland Coliseum:
