Ange’s kids out of control
TRASHED ROOMS, GUNS & FOOD FIGHTS
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.

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
