Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie collecting houses, too
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are reportedly adding a sizable home to their cache of mansions. This time, the house is located near London and set the couple back a cool $16 million.
Are the engaged Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie plunking down $16 million big ones to buy a house they rented last year? Depends on whom you talk to. The U.K. gossip newspaper The Sun reported Thursday that Brangelina is moving into the property near London — known as Whornes Place — while Jolie films Maleficent later this year.
They like the culture and are happy for their children to receive schooling here. They think Richmond is a beautiful part of the world," a source told The Sun of the property that boasts an indoor pool and plenty of space for the brood of six children.
However, sources are now saying that the man who owns the house has no plans to sell.
"They are staying in a gated community in Oxfordshire," a source told E! News of the family's actual digs. "They are going to be in London for quite a long time and the plan so far is that they are going to move around between different rental properties so they can enjoy some privacy. Right now they are not planning on buying anything in London.
"Bear in mind," the insider added, "Angelina has bought and sold here before. She used to own a home in Buckinghamshire but sold it because she doesn't spend enough time in the U.K. to justify a purchase. Angelina and Brad only come to England for work, not for vacations."
Meanwhile, Jolie is traveling in her role as special UN envoy. She most recently visited Ecuador to visit with refugees who fled to the country from Colombia.
"I really encourage the government to continue their tradition of assistance to vulnerable families in need," Jolie said during her visit, according to the U.N. agency's statement.
