Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt Build Springfield, Missouri Home
Is the heartland ready for the Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt circus? A report claims that the Bible belt may wish to buckle up as the Pitt-Jolie clan is reportedly building a ‘Missouri mansion’ so they can hopefully spend some time with the kids near Pitt’s traditional family.
Star Magazine reports that the home will have seven bedrooms.
“He and Angie bought a lot of furniture and artifacts in Africa,” a source tells the weekly magazine. “They plan on bringing those to Springfield.” Even though a report earlier from Star claimed that Jolie and her quasi in-laws were not getting along so well right now, the home is but a mere quarter mile from Pitt’s folks Bill and Jane home.
That home reportedly already has a nursery for baby Shiloh at the ready.
But will Angie ever spend time at the Pitt’s house? Star cites a source that claims she will never spend a night there.
And the magazine’s cover story notes a tense situation during Brad and Angie’s adopted son Maddox’s birthday party.
The report claimed that the Pitt clan (dad Bill, 65, mom, 66, brother Doug, 39, sister Julie, 37, and their spouses and kids) flew out to California from hometown Springfield, Mo., on Thursday, Aug. 3 – but stayed only two days, leaving a few days earlier than planned, on the actual day of Maddox’s party!
“Things were very tense that weekend,” the friend tells Star, “and they left with an even worse impression of Angie than before. They think she’s tactless and doesn’t consider other people’s feelings.”
Can Brad play peacemaker? And what will the sleepy Springfield think of the attention Jolie and Pitt receive if they spend time at their new digs?
It could get very interesting in Springfield if the circus that follows the couple around comes to town.
