Just weeks before filing for divorce, Angelina Jolie secretly rented a family home in Malibu.

The actress, who shocked the world when she decided to breakup with Brad Pitt earlier this week, kept herself out of the spotlight in a $95,000 hideaway while she contemplated making the life-changing decision.

While her divorce papers list the split date as September 15, it seems the star had already found a home for herself and her six children to stay in.

The five bedroom home covers a massive 4,409 square-feet and would be worth around $12 million if it was put up for sale.

Angelina’s new home is tucked away from the road and and protected with a gate in a bid to give her family some privacy during her relationship struggles.

It seems the star is determined to say out of sight, after he assistant was spotted running errants for her on Friday.

According to Mail Online, the actress has set up a “war room” inside the home where she and her team can workout how best to deal with her divorce publicly.

While Angelina and her children stay in the home, Brad has been left alone at the former couple’s Los Feliz home, which is around an hours drive away.

It comes following claims that Brad has begged Angelina Jolie to see his children after the actress ‘brutally’ cut all visitation.

Brad is being investigated by the FBI

But Angelina is said to be stopping the 52-year-old from visiting their six children allegedly until the FBI investigation has been completed.

It was alleged that Brad had an altercation with 15-year-old son Maddox on a private jet last Wednesday.

But Pitt could soon be vindicated after footage from Minnesota’s International Falls Airport shows the dad-of-six screaming at Maddox – but there is no physical altercation.

A rep for the star has been approached for comment
