The Louis XIII style mansion dates back to the Gilded Age and was designed by Richard Morris Hunt, the man behind the Statue Of Liberty’s pedestal.

His work also includes the entrance hall, grand stairway and outer facade of the Metropolitan Museum Of Art in New York City.

Belcourt Of Newport was built with 60 rooms for socialite and sometime congressman Oliver Belmont, whose wife Alva Vanderbilt then revamped the place.

Pickwick Club founders Ruth and Harold Tinney bought Belcourt in 1956 – and the story took a bizarre twist after he died in 1989.

Ruth, then in her 80s, developed an emotional attachment to her home’s plumber Kevin Koellisch, who was then in his 30s.

According to records from a legal battle that pitted Kevin against Ruth’s son and daughter-in-law, the plumber was in a gay relationship and housed his lover at Belcourt while kissing Ruth in public.

Kevin persuaded Ruth to adopt him in 1990 and he obtained the Tinney surname, as well as eventually a partial interest in Belcourt, which caused the long court fight.

During the 1990s, the estate became the site of a notorious string of parties including one where underwear was reportedly banned.

For guests who still have room left, the entrees will include a leg of beef that has been aged from five years and is topped with forager’s sauce.

Jennifer’s breakup with her 50-year-old Mother! director Darren Aronofsky went public in October 2017, a month after their movie flopped.

She was linked to Cooke the following summer and by this February, she had accepted his proposal and was wearing his ring.

‘Well, he’s just the best person I’ve ever met in my whole life. It was a very, very easy decision,’ she told Entertainment Tonight of her decision to say yes.
