Jolie's House Hunting Fuel Split Rumours!

Angelina Jolie has fuelled speculation that a split from beau Brad Pitt is on the cards after she was spotted house hunting for a "bachelorette pad" in Los Angeles.
The Oscar winner dropped in alone to view a 1million pounds, Mediterranean-style villa in the Laurel Canyon enclave after dropping her older kids off at pre-school.
Owner Wolfgang Wind admitted that it was "strange" that Jolie had come to see the place all by herself.
"It was very strange because it was just her; no bodyguard, no assistant, no nanny, no kids - and no Brad," the Daily Express quoted her, as saying.
"I had no idea who the potential buyer was until I saw her. She was driving a black SUV with blacked-out windows, like the ones the Secret Service drive.
"She looked quite frail and extremely thin. She was very flattering and said the house was extremely nice and I'm hoping she'll make an offer," he added.
The newly remodeled, quarter-acre villa set on a 2,000 sq ft property, is located high in the rustic Hollywood Hills on Laurel Canyon Boulevard.
The pad comes equipped with an outdoor rock pool, hot tub, two waterfalls, a massage pavilion and small guesthouse in the grounds.
Inside, it has also has a sauna and whirlpool bath but only three bedrooms - a master suite and two smaller ones.
Jolie is reported to have started house hunting after Pitt bough his own bachelor pad in Berlin.
Apart from Pitt's pad, the couple share a mansion in the German capital, which is less than six miles away, as well as properties in the US.
According to reports, Jolie only learned of Brad's new place four weeks ago while visiting Berlin en route to France for a family holiday. By the time she came to know of the place, Pitt had commissioned architects Lars Krueckeberg, Wolfram Putz and Thomas Willemeit to refurbish it in the sleek, ultra-modern style he prefers.
