Hollywood superstar Brad Pitt has splashed out on graffiti paintings of the British royal family and late singer Amy Winehouse.

The Moneyball star, who is currently based in the UK while partner Angelina Jolie is filming Maleficent, has bought three pieces from British artist Bambi, a canvas of Prince William and his wife Duchess Catherine, one of Queen Elizabeth and another picture of Winehouse, reported Femalefirst.

"There is a lot of buzz about Bambi at the moment. As Brad's here with the family for up to two years, it makes sense to fill the house with art by British artists.

"He already has a Banksy, which he bought for £1 million at a London auction, but shipped it to LA," a source said.
