Angelina Jolie bolted in the night to a cheaper rental near the Kardashians


By now, I think we have a pretty good idea of the general points of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s falling out. First, they had lots of issues throughout the year. It got so bad this summer that Angelina began looking at house rentals in LA and Malibu, and she reportedly found an expensive Malibu rental just a week or two before she filed for divorce. Then the plane incident went down and Angelina bolted with the kids to said Malibu rental, leaving Brad in the dust. Angelina was called many terrible things because she had an exit strategy and a plan, but I guess what we didn’t know was that the Malibu rental was always a temporary solution. Entertainment Tonight claims that Angelina has once again bolted with the kids, this time to a less expensive rental.

Angelina Jolie left her Malibu hideaway for an estate in Hidden Hills, California, overnight, and ET has details on the new pad. The property is nearly double the size of her 4,409-square-foot Malibu rental, boasting 8,284 square feet. Within that space are two beach entry pools, a cascading waterfall, an 800-sqare-foot cabana and a wine tasting room.

The new mansion is also cheaper than her former property. While the Malibu estate is worth close to $12 million and rents for $95,000 per month, the Hidden Hills residence is listed at a price of $6,895,000, renting at monthly rate of $30,000. And the Oscar winner isn’t the only famous person in the gated neighborhood. Her address is nearly a mile and a half away from Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

The new place should make her children — Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 8 — feel right at home.

[From ET]

Apparently, the property once belonged to Denise Richards, and there are some Denise-era photos of the interiors floating around – go here to see. That interior design looks like a ‘90s goth nightmare, but I’m pretty sure someone (possibly Denise) revamped the interior at some point. Which is too bad, because I bet Angelina would have liked some ‘90s goth interior design. Anyway, I think it’s interesting that Angelina bolted once again and this time she’s way out in Calabasas with the Kardashians. The Kardashians actually live in a gated community, and I bet that’s what attracted Angelina to a rental in that area: it’s more secure, the paparazzi will have less access and there will be fewer people noting her comings and goings.

PS… Angelina’s shoe game is worse than Duchess Kate’s. Someone needed to say it!

    Leopard print carpet. Holy crap.

    • OhHellNo! says:

      All that money and absolutely no taste at all, Gah! No way could I live in that, hopefully it has been gutted and redecorated and refurnished throughout. I’m shuddering at the amount of hideous decor.

    • Sam says:

      Hopefully she is looking for a permanent home and this just for the moment. I’m assuming the divorce and child services case is going to take a while to resolve.

      Also I feel sorry for the regular neighbors that have to deal with paparazzi machine a combo kimye/ st. Angie Jo will bring

      • Goldie says:

        Hidden Hills is a large gated community. The paps won’t be able to get in, which is probably why she chose it.

    • Pandy says:

      And the corset chair in the dressing room!!! I do like the kitchen.

  2. Astrid says:

    Good for Angie to take extra precaution for her and the kids. And yes, she needs to up her shoe game.

    • Carmen says:

      Her shoe game looks fine to me. I live in ballet flats.

      • Lahdidahbaby says:

        I like them too, but there are ballet flats and ballet flats. These nude tone ones look awful with her black ensemble.

      • Payapa says:

        I think those are Chloe ballet flats and I love them nude and all.

      • Nibbi says:

        shoot im gonna get me some nude tone ballet flats to wear with black just out of solidarity with her 😉 (blows on angeloony badge, buffs it a bit)

  3. Georgia says:

    I don’t know if I would choose the place where Kardashians live as my home base if I was looking for privacy

    • BearcatLawyer says:

      Hidden Hills is ideal for them. Since it is a very large gated development, it will be impossible for paps or strangers to get anywhere near them. I have visited a friend whose family owns a home there, and it is beautiful.

      • Liberty says:

        Agreed. It is a very easy place to live in some relative peace. I always liked it. Too bad the K’s live there, but it’s a large area.

  4. mini says:

    Her shoe game is okay. I am glad she feels safer with the kids in this new residence. I hope she is okay and the kids and Brad are okay too. Sometimes two people who love each other can not make it work. Sad.

  5. Brunswickstoval says:

    Re the shoes pretty sure they’re Chloe scalloped flats. Might just be a bad photo but IRL they are beautiful.

  6. my3cents says:

    I’ll let her pass on shoe game. The amount of humanitarian work she does, raising 6 kids and movie work, is well out of Kate’s range. The minute Kate starts working like Jolie I’ll give her a pass too.
    And good for her for putting her kids best interest first. She is one remarkable lady.

  7. MostlyMegan says:

    Lainey said in a recent podcast that Jolie is ‘so much older than her age’ in many ways and particularly in the way she dresses. This really manifests itself in her shoes, which are almost always a big let down. Her knee high boots always look good though. She committed to never wearing jeans again, so I guess that limits what she wants to wear on her feet too. Say what you want about Amal Clooney (another woman ‘older’ than her age) she brings a strong shoe game.

    • Artemis says:

      Personal style has got nothing to do with age and everything to do with personality. Lainey of all people should know this. Powerful women who are close to Jolie’s age like Amal, Laura Wasser et. al. have great style. Love it or hate it but these women care about their outfits on a deeper level. It’s stylish and professional. Especially Amal takes big risks with her wardrobe but the clothes never overpower her.
      Lainey herself is obsessed with fashion and does not do what people expect her to do (e.g. have short hair and she’s into weird looking shoes). She’s actively against it so her quote about Jolie being older than her age in regards to her dress style is sexist lazy drivel.

      There are young people with atrociously boring style every day and older people who are fabulous. When I go to London especially I see so many older business women who kill it in the fashion department. Being old with a bad sense of style is just a stereotype. Jolie just has bad style. Her only great fashion era was a small time frame between 2001 and 2006 because jeans + t-shirt = simple and beautiful. And her jackets/coats were amazing! Her professional outfits were way more stylish! I don’t what the hell happened but after that it was sack dresses and too formal wear for simple outings. I’ll never forget her wearing a tight pencil skirt and blouse for joining her kids on a playground?! She can’t even get formal wear right anymore.

    I feel for the whole family. Wish them well.

  9. lenje says:

    This reminds me to the school breaks back when I was still in grade school. My mom would take me and my sister holidaying in another town, and some times we were dragged from one hotel to another cheaper one. That’s why we preferred to travel with my dad, who was much more generous. (My parents were not separated, just that my dad most of the time could not take his leave during school holidays).

  10. serena says:

    I hope she won’t let her kids grow up / live in Los Angeles :/

  11. Kyle says:

    I’ll let her shoe game slide. But, I have always side-eyed the family being on the move so much over the years and wondered if stability (being in the same house, going to the same school) was something missing. I’m probably projecting a bit though, since it’s not something that would work for me.

    • noname says:

      I don’t know that stability regarding location is that important. I think parents being present, attentive and loving are more valuable. These children are traveling the world, and not just in a glamorous way (i.e. visiting refugee camps). I think that experience will likely serve them better as adults than living in the same (massive) house, going to the same (privileged) school.

      • jinni says:

        Sure but what about establishing friendships and a self/identity outside of the family unit? I don’t think anyone thinks having a kid experience the world is bad or that they shouldn’t travel at all just that being in one place for a decent amount of time is good too. They can still travel part of the year but have a homebase that they always go back to and have a stable group of friends that live there.

        I know Jolie loves talking about her kids being able to play with kids in refugee camps and such, but there is just something about having friends that have been through similar life experiences and that you came up with.

      • Luca76 says:

        I also think considering three of them were born in different countries and they are incredibly privledge it’s actually a good thing for them to be traveling and exposed to her charity work.

      • Chinoiserie says:

        jinni I agree, how these kids can have stable important friendships? And it is important for be attached to some places as well when yo are young. I do not know if small kids really get visiting refugees either, if it is just a visit it might not really affect you more than kids watching a documentary.

      • lucy2 says:

        I’ve expressed that myself in the past, Jinni.
        Traveling is GREAT – it’s wonderful for those kids to see the world and how other people live, especially since they are so privileged, but I think it’s also good to have a home base too, and be in places long enough to form friendships and feel like a part of a community. If I were an actor and parent, I think that’s what I would try to do.

    • whirldly says:

      Growing up my family moved all the time (my father was a banker) and the longest I lived anywhere until my 20’s was 2 years. I went to 17 schools in 12 years. We lived in some great places (in no particular order: Montreal, Toronto, Calgary and Victoria in Canada, Washington and LA in the states, Nassau Bahamas and England 3 times- twice in London and once in the country) and while there were some fantastic benefits like traveling further afield on holidays, meeting wonderful people and seeing beautiful places and things, my pleasure in my childhood comes mostly in memory and retrospect. The reality was always being the new girl, always feeling out of place and insecure. Every move was a frightening upheaval and fraught with loss. Most times when we moved there was no more than a week or 10 days notice of everything being packed up and shipped to the new place.
      It was difficult and I used to think I was both uniquely put upon… but equally lucky too.
      But my parents stayed together and were my safety and security always. I cannot even imagine what it would have been like if my parents had split up and shifted us all over the place and into rental homes.
      The Jolie-pitts have more than enough homes for Angelina to have picked somewhere familiar – the French place maybe – and just told Brad to stay away. I mean, she wasn’t ever trying to hide from him was she?
      All this “bolting” seems like the most security-threatening choice she could have made. I really feel for those kids.

      • heidiho69 says:

        So true…they already have existing homes- which would have been easier just to go home…but maybe she couldn’t get away from Brad that way…

  12. frosty says:

    I bet she left because the ever-luvin’ media showed the location of the first house, exposing her and the kids to every maniac who can search google images. Sheesh.

  13. Minxx says:

    I’m sure she had to bolt for the sake of her family. Like everything she does. Her clothes are beyond boring but who can complain – between her charitable work and raising 6 kids, I’m surprised she combs her hair. Besides, saints don’t care for shoes. They’re usually portrayed barefoot.

  14. Sage says:

    Sheesh, moving the kids around like this most be hard on them. I bet they want to go home.

  15. Fa says:

    I still think she rented the 1st house the day of the accident since she moved next day, because the house was not a community gated in the 1st place if she has planned of leaving him she will have a good plan house than the 1st house

    • SaraR. says:

      I agree.

    • B n A fn says:

      I agree with you Fa. I was just thinking if she was planning to move soon she would have looked at homes in gated community. For her to pickup and move again leads me to believe she took the first house she saw the day after the incident. Anyway, I’m going to continue to stay out of giving my opinion on what’s going on with the family. I’m hoping by now Brad did get his supervised visit with his children and it went well.

  16. Nicole says:

    Katie Holmes had her plan ready, if you have the resources and so many women don’t, good for her.

  17. JenB says:

    Is that Elvira’s house?
    I love the dress Angelina’s daughter is wearing! So cute!

    • Janetdr says:

      I haven’t seen pictures of the little ones in a long time! They are adorable. And whatever on the shoes for right now.

  18. noname says:

    That interior is so Fairuza Balk and I don’t hate it. The novelty would probably wear off and I’d want a change, but as a rental, I could dig it. Re: AJ’s style, its fine. It’s practical, classic, and with that face, you don’t need to be churchin up your clothes to make a statement.

  19. KB says:

    @FA I’m guessing this one became available Oct 1 and then took a few days to prepare for the family.

  20. Nancy says:

    But of course, how could one survive without a wine tasting room. The privileged life of the rich and famous.

  21. Who ARE These People? says:

    I would so bolt in the middle of the night to a house with a cascading waterfall.

  22. Lolo86lf says:

    Why did she move to a less expensive rental? Did Brad tell her to? Was the $100,000.00/month coming out his pocket?

    • SaraR. says:

      I don’t think the price was the reason for the move. I think they moved to gated community so they would be more protected. They already took some pictures of the kids playing in the garden in that Malibu house.

      • lucy2 says:

        That’s what I figured – the media found out way too quickly where they were, and it was too accessible. I don’t blame her for moving, or for having a plan if things were going badly.

  23. Jade says:

    Does anyone remember around oscar season Laura Wasser talking about a major divorce about to happehn, anyone think this was the pitts?

    • SaraR. says:

      No, because Laura Wasser said in NYT interview a week ago, that she new Angelina from years ago, didn’t hear from her in years and she called her just last week.

  24. MrsBPitt says:

    I still cannot figure out why Angie and the kids did not or were not able to stay in their family home, and make Brad move out! Why should those kids have to move away from their home? Does anyone know the reason? Even if the house is titled to Brad alone, what judge would make six children leave the comfort of their own space?

    • Colette says:

      How can she “make Brad move out” of his house that he owned before they met? Also these kids have lived in dozens of houses over the years.They may not be as attached to a house as a kid who has lived in ONE house for several years.

      As for the new rental,I knew she would move because paps got pics of the four younger kids at the old rental.I have seen them on fan IG pages.The kids spotted the paps and Knox was using an I Phone to take pics of the paparazzi in one picture.

    • Louisa says:

      I have been wondering the same thing. Doesn’t make any sense unless there is some legal reason. A while ago a colleague of mine was going through a divorce and he was advised by his lawyer not to leave the family home as that may be considered “deserting the family” and would look bad in the custody case. But his kids and wife also stayed so I’m not sure if this is relevant here.

    • Luca76 says:

      Probably because they weren’t in a place where they could calmly discuss what was best. It sounds like they were trying to figure out an amicable split but he wasn’t in the right state of mind or sobriety to rationally talk things out.

  25. Dani says:

    It boggles my mind that people could pay so much in rent and not bat an eye. I know some people who don’t even make $30k a year. Good for her for being so successful, but hot damn.

    • Ennie says:

      And to think that some people, like Ellen, the same kardashians, et al buy homes, tear them down when they are perfectly fine?
      I know they create jibes for construction workers, but all that waste to me, at least is mind blowing.
      I understand that the most expensive rents are in SAN Francisco and in Manhattan, tho.

  26. Nibbi says:

    whaaaat? hey man no, i like her shoe game. i like her simple and toned-down and real kind of wardrobe. one gets the sense she has more important things on her mind, which she does.

  27. puravidacostarica says:

    Just a matter of time before LeAnn Rimes tweets, if Angelina ever moves out of Hidden Hills, how close they were and how often they had pool parties at each other’s houses.
