Angelina Jolie Not Planning to Leave Los Angeles
Angelina Jolie’s representative has shot down reports suggesting the actress/director is planning to move her family to London to take up a top position with the United Nations.
The Maleficent star hit headlines early on Tuesday amid rumors she is keen to relocate from Los Angeles to the British capital, taking her six children with her.
The speculation suggested Jolie, who is currently a Special Envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), was pursuing a bigger role within the intergovernmental organization, based across the Atlantic. However, a spokesperson for the actress and activist has moved to dismiss the claims, insisting the reports are “absolutely false.”
“She has no intention of moving to London,” the representative tells Entertainment Tonight. “In fact, she is looking for a new home in the Los Angeles area so that she can continue the family therapy sessions.”
The counseling is one of the conditions of Jolie’s custody agreement with her estranged husband Brad Pitt following the couple’s split in September after two years of marriage.
The actors struck the custody deal in early November, when Jolie was granted primary care of the kids, with Pitt allowed visitation monitored by a therapist. The Inglourious Basterds star must also submit to random drug and alcohol tests at least four times a month.
Jolie recently filed the agreement in court and it was signed by a Los Angeles judge on Friday.
While Jolie has no plans to live in London full-time, she will soon be spending time in the city as she prepares to take on a new role as a guest professor at the London School of Economics’ Center for Women, Peace and Security. Her stint on the faculty begins in September 2017.
