A desperate Angelina Jolie is fleeing the country with her kids — leaving clueless daddy Brad Pitt in the dust! RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal Angie, 41, is in secret negotiations to purchase a massive $12.5 million Tudor-style mansion in Richmond, west of London!
"Angie has been making moves to buy the estate because she knows it can work for her and the children, especially as it’s close to central London and her friends," said neighbor Carole Walker, 72.
The stunning news comes as the couple has been in heated talks about the custody of their six children, and following Angie’s failed smear campaign, which included allegations of child abuse that were rejected by both the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services AND the FBI!
"Having the charges dismissed shattered Angie," said a source. "She is convinced that she has now become the villain to the public — and she can’t handle it. Now she’s so humiliated and fearful she wants to start over — and is even ready to pick up and take them to another country!" Indeed, as Radar reported, the family has already left America for a press tour of Southeast Asia.
The palatial 1925 mansion that could be their future home has been owned by several celebrities, including a former Rolling Stones manager, Andrew Loog Oldham.
"Angelina has been talking to the owner of the house about living here and took the kids to The Open Book shop nearby,” said Carole. The move comes as little surprise to pals of Brad, 53.
Jolie's attorney, Laura Wasser, most recently claimed Brad’s image would be ripped to shreds if his fans learned what was really in their ugly divorce files, and that he wants to seal the documents because he’s “terrified that the public will learn the truth.” But his lawyers noted officials have “cleared Brad, so it’s pretty obvious that they did not find Angelina’s claims to have merit.” Instead, Brad has made an emergency request to have the file on their legal battle sealed.
He said airing dirty laundry in public would be emotionally harmful to adopted kids Maddox, 15; Pax, 13; and Zahara, 12; and their biological children, Shiloh, 10, and 8-year-old twins, Vivienne and Knox.
The move will put Angie just 10 miles from the London homes of Baroness Arminka Helic, 48, and Chloe Dalton, 37, the two powerful women known as the star’s “coven” — or “Team Angie” — who are engineering her move into international politics. Angie’s closeness to the two is reportedly said to have infuriated Brad and triggered a string of furious rows between the pair before their two-year marriage dramatically imploded.
Brad frequently argued with Angie over how the pair “brainwashed” her into taking endless humanitarian tours around the world and creating long months of separation between them, according to insiders. “Even when she was with Brad and the family in Hollywood, Angie was constantly calling Chloe and Arminka on the phone or texting them! Brad can’t stand those two — he calls them the evil twins,” a source revealed.
“He sees them as the beginning of the end of what was once his fairy-tale relationship with Angie, and having his kids spending time in their clutches will only happen over his dead body. “He’s preparing for this fight to get even uglier, especially if she makes good on her plans to move to London.”
