Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, one of Hollywood’s most well-known celebrity couples, are apparently making a move overseas to find a new permanent home. Jolie and Pitt’s London-bound move will begin this year in March, while Brad Pitt will be filming the sequel to his 2013 zombie-apocalypse thriller, World War Z. The family will be spending at least six months in London, reports Vanity Fair.
A source close to the couple says that Pitt and Jolie’s new London home will serve as a new location to base some political projects on. They have “plans to focus on political projects dealing with the ongoing refugee crisis in Europe,” according to the source via Us Weekly. However, it seems as if Jolie and Pitt are still searching for a home in London.
“They want to buy, but have yet to find a place that suits their needs,” says the source. “Their wishlist includes an underground drive-in entrance and a courtyard.”
And with a large family of six, it would seem that the married couple have plenty of needs that must be met before they decide on a new home for the family. Their oldest is 14-year-old Maddox, whom Angelina Jolie adopted several years ago. He is followed by 12-year-old Pax, 11-year-old Zahara, 9-year-old Shiloh, and their youngest being their 7-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. “Nomadic” is a word Jolie has used to describe her family life and the kids even get to participate in where the family goes next.
“They’re participating more in the choices of where we go,” Angelina Jolie, 40, told the Guardian late last year.
“And if we have to go somewhere where they’re going to miss their friends, we try to get them back for a period of time — or we try to have their friends come out. I don’t want this lifestyle to ever be something they don’t want. I don’t want them to feel they don’t want to do that one more trip, or that they can’t handle one more film abroad. So we’ll have to gauge it, make some adjustments.”
The Jolie-Pitt kids got to join their mother, all except for Maddox and Brad Pitt, at the L.A. premiere of her new film, Kung Fu Panda 3, on January 16. Their attendance at the premiere makes all the more sense knowing that the kids each got to voice panda characters in the movie.
“They were kind of shy,” Angelina Jolie told Entertainment Tonight. “They don’t really want to be actors, but I didn’t want them to miss the opportunity. They came in, and they had a lot of fun with it.”
But as happy as the Jolie-Pitt family seems, some suggest there may be some family drama brewing beneath the surface. Are these Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt divorce rumors true?
The Hollywood couple were officially married in 2014, after dating for nearly 10 years. Pitt and Jolie have apparently been having trouble in their marriage for over a year and have even been living separately, according to Hollywood Life, via Times of India. A source close to the couple allegedly stated that Angelina has some dark demons that she has not fully dealt with yet — a need to be isolated away from her family, with her personal struggles possibly having an impact on her as a mother and wife. This might be an explanation as to why Brad Pitt did not join his family at the Kung Fu Panda 3 premiere, and according to the source, Brad has been trying to hang on to his confidence in the marriage. But as more time goes on, his patience is beginning to run out, the source says.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are reportedly staying together for the sake of their children. They are both apparently looking forward to moving to London later this Spring. If the divorce rumors are true, perhaps the move could provide an opportunity for the two to work out their issues.
