Bradd Pitt Spends Over $ 1.1 Million For Bachelor Pad To Get Over Split From Angelina Jolie
Actor Bradd Pitt has reportedly spent over $ 1.1 million on a bachelor pad in the Hollywood Hills to help him sort out his split from partner Angelina Jolie, says a report.
Built in 1920 and originally on sale, the property has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a bar area and a cave built into the foundations, reports dailymail.co.uk.
"The house oozes character. Brad has had his eye on it for some time but he decided now was the right time to buy because he wanted a place to call his own," said a source.
"He needs somewhere quiet that doesn't have memories of Angie and where he can be alone and think about what he does next," added the source.
It was reported that Pitt's mother Jane has stepped in to try to save his relationship with Jolie. The 70-year-old has apparently become close to the actress after working with her while setting up a cancer centre.
Pitt and Jolie are already believed to have enlisted lawyers to negotiate the division of their over $330 million (205 million pounds) fortune and custody of their children.
But a family source said: "Brad is desperately trying to cling on to the wreckage of the relationship as he is still very much in love with Angelina and believes they can make it work."
"Jane wants what is best for her son and grandchildren and Angie has agreed to meet her. She has stuck at her own marriage and worked with families for 30 years trying to keep them together."
The couple have six children - adopted sons Maddox, 8, and Pax, 6; adopted daughter Zahara, 5, and their natural children Shiloh, 3, and 17-month-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
