RadarOnline.com has learned Jolie, 42, is shopping for real estate and has short-listed a $27 million, 18th-century townhouse in London’s St. James’s Park.
“This is Brad’s worst nightmare,” said a source. “He’s about to start filming a big project,” a Charles Manson–themed movie co-starring Leonardo DiCaprio, “and travel outside the U.S. is going to be tough.”
“Brad will see even less of the kids, which of course will be devastating for him,” added the source.
The Maleficent actress’ stunning betrayal comes amid the former couple’s battle for custody of Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 11, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 9.
Jolie slapped Pitt with divorce papers in September 2016, and she unleashed legal pit bull Laura Wasser on him.
The Oscar winner also stage-managed a smear campaign against Pitt that included allegations of child abuse.
Both the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services and the FBI rejected the sensational claims — and Jolie’s plotting backfired when Hollywood viewed her as the villain.
According to another source, the vengeful Salt siren wants to keep Pitt from publicly playing the part of a loving, involved father.
“Angie knows Brad’s winning with his post-divorce image makeover,” the source said. “The last thing she wants is for him to be seen as a doting single dad, too.”
