While the world has been abuzz with news of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's divorce, the 41-year-old actress and her children have sought sanctuary in a new Malibu home.
A source tells ET that Jolie and her six children -- Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 8 -- moved into the Malibu rental on Monday, before news broke of the couple's split.
Jolie's newly rented Malibu home sits not far from the Pacific Coast Highway, and includes a private path down to the beach. While the lot sits on a relatively busy street overlooking a public parking lot for beach access, the gated home is surrounded by large trees, giving her and the kids privacy.
According to The Daily Mail, the five bedroom, five bath home is 4,409 square feet, and is worth close to $12 million. However, the Tomb Raider star is renting the property month-to-month at a price of $95,000.
Another source tells ET that "the beachside town is buzzing with news of the Jolie-Pitt family's arrival" and "can't believe" the family has moved to Malibu amid their recent family drama.
"I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids," he said in a statement to People on Tuesday. "I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time."
Regardless of the split, ET's source says that Pitt thinks Jolie is "a great mom."
"He will only say positive things about [the] mother [of his children]," the source stated. "He has also made it clear to friends to not say anything negative about her. He continues to hope that there is an amicable resolution in the interest of the kids."
