Ange’s kids out of con­trol


NW - - Contents -

When it comes to par­ent­ing, Brad Pitt once ad­mit­ted he was the bad cop to his then-wife An­gelina Jolie’s good cop.

“I feel like my job is to show them around, help them find what they want to do with their life, put as many things in front of them, and pull them back when they get out of line,” the ac­tor told UK pa­per The Tele­graph.

But now that he’s no longer in the pic­ture full-time since split­ting from Ange a year ago, all hell has bro­ken loose!

Word is that Mad­dox, 16, Pax, 13, Za­hara, 12, Shiloh, 11, and twins Knox and Vivi­enne, nine, have free rein over the $31 mil­lion LA prop­erty their mum pur­chased ear­lier this year – so much so that the pala­tial six-bed­room, 10-bath­room pad is more mad house than mega man­sion!

“It’s a house of hor­rors,” a source bluntly tells In Touch of the his­toric home which was once owned by leg­endary film­maker Ce­cil B. Demille, adding that Ange let her brood dec­o­rate their rooms ac­cord­ing to their own tastes. “[It’s] a cross be­tween a trashed frat house and a Day­glo-cov­ered rave club.”

But the ac­tress ad­mits she’s never been overly fussed about in­te­rior de­sign. And when Van­ity Fair vis­ited the man­sion to chat with Ange for their Septem­ber is­sue, she re­vealed that a set-dec­o­ra­tor friend took care of it.

“I didn’t even know I needed ‘th ‘throw pil­lows’,” she told the mag. al m al­ways “[Dec­o­rat­ing]Brad’s thing.” was

“An­gelina“A has no clue whatw she’s do­ing. There are ab­so­lutelyab no rules,” says the In Touch source, adding that th the “loud, brawl­ing” Jolie-pitt tt ki kids are even en­cour­aged to ex­press them­selves by sc scrib­bling on the walls.

They used to do the sa same thing at their par­ents’ $5 $57 mil­lion French es­tate Ch Chateau Mi­raval, with work cr crews reg­u­larly brought in to pa paint over the dam­age af­ter th the globe-trot­ting fam­ily had be been in res­i­dence.

“The next time they came ba back, it would be in pris­tine co con­di­tion,” ex­plains th the source.

At their cu cur­rent home, in in­door soc­cer ga games as well as food and wa­ter rew re­main fight­s­the no norm, while th things are just as ch chaotic out­doors.

In­deed, just weeks af af­ter pur­chas­ing her ne new home – hav­ing liv lived up un­til then in rental prop­er­ties po post-split – cool m mum Ange had

a gi­ant slide in­stalled by the pool. She also proudly re­vealed that she helped con­struct an elab­o­rate tree­house that was built on the grounds. “We had this thing in our house, like mon­key bars rs and a Park­our thing and a lad­der that I just built,” she told d US Peo­ple magazine e ear­lier this month. But don’t think all that at ac­tiv­ity wears out the Jolie-pitt kids. s. It’s ap­par­ently not un­com­mon for the brood – who are home­schooled – to be up past mid­night dur­ing the week, blast­ing mu­sic like the Rolling Stones and watch­ing g films in­tended for a more ma­ture au­di­ence! “They go to bed very, very late and end up sleep­ing in very late the next day,” ” spills the source. What’s cook­ing? She feels right at home both in front of and be­hind the cam­eras, but place Ange in a do­mes­tic set­ting, and she’s a fish out of wa­ter.

“Angie’s not good at be­ing a home­maker,” says the In Touch source. “She can barely get break­fast on the ta­ble.”

The source adds that Ange strug­gles to jug­gle “ba­sic care­giv­ing and daily sched­ules” and that “or­gan­is­ing meal times for her brood is all too much for her”.

Ange even ad­mit­ted re­cently that her kids have to help her out dur­ing meal times.

“They love it [when I cook], but they of­ten take over,” she quipped to the UK’S Ra­dio Times.

What’s more, a source tells Radar On­line that the ac­tress, di­rec­tor and hu­man­i­tar­ian “can’t even fry an egg or cook pasta – and she burns toast”.

But now that Ange is a sin­gle mum, she’s try­ing to turn over a new leaf.

“I am go­ing to cook­ing classes... My best recipe is when I ac­ci­den­tally put some­thing to­gether and it just hap­pens to work out,” she says. “Per­son­ally, I can’t fol­low a recipe. I am one of
