Things post-divorce are turning out to be trickier for Angelina Jolie than she thought. In the wake of her devastating split from husband of three years, Brad Pitt, Angie's house — which she shares with her six children — has become chaotic, according to In Touch. With organization and upkeep never being Angelina's strong suit, everything's out of sorts.
She recently bought a massive estate in LA's Los Feliz neighborhood, and when she, Maddox, 16, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11, and nine-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, moved into the California mansion, she promised the kids "they could all decorate their rooms," a family insider revealed. Recently, she admitted that, "[Decorating] was always Brad's thing."

Her lack of interest and lax attitude has resulted in trashed rooms and no rules. "[It's] a cross between a trashed frat house and a DayGlo-covered rave club," the source shared. "It's a house of horrors." Despite the mansion boasting six bedrooms, 10 baths, and questionable decor, it's the kids' reign over the place that's really adding fuel to the fire. It's a move that's characteristic of Angelina's carefree parenting style, but one that also seems to be backfiring. But the chaos isn't just happening behind closed doors. Earlier this summer, Shiloh and Vivienne Jolie-Pitt were spotted walking barefoot through a Target parking lot looking very unkept.
Another source close to Brad insisted that Angelina is feeling "overwhelmed" in LA, despite her ex living only a few blocks away. "Angelina has lost control. It's shocking what goes on in this house," the family source continued.
The family insider shared that the kids' weapon of choice is a handful of crayons. "They express themselves by scribbling and coloring on the walls," the source admitted. This destruction-slash-artistry is nothing new. After all, Angelina famously allowed her children to decorate her 2014 wedding gown, and their $60 million estate in France was reportedly wrecked by the kiddos. The Brad source said, "Crews came in to repair the damage. So the next time they came back, it would be in pristine condition."
This time around, however, Angelina doesn't have the luxury of a clean-up crew. "Food and water fights and soccer games inside the house remain the norm," the family insider said. The single mom is certainly in over her head. "Angelina has no clue what she is doing. There are absolutely no rules," the source alleged.
And with "no rules" comes no bedtimes. In the Jolie household, they simply don't exist. "It's not uncommon for all of the kids to be up past midnight during the week, eating sugary snacks and soda," the Brad source shared. "They go to bed very, very late and end up sleeping in very late the next day."

An Angelina insider added, "Although she's maternal, as much as she wants to be, Angie's not good at being a homemaker. She can barely get breakfast on the table. Juggling basic caregiving and daily schedules that include playdates, doctor's appointments, and organizing meal times for her brood is all too much to her."
It's a weakness she has even admitted to. "Sometimes maybe it appears I am pulling it all together," Angelina said in a recent interview, "but really I am just trying to get through my days... I'm not as strong inside as I have been in the past. I don't enjoy being single. It's not something I wanted."
