(Newser) – The latest development in the gossip universe’s breathless coverage of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s rumored split: Brad bought himself a $1.1 million bachelor pad. This according to the Daily Mail, which even has pictures of the two-bedroom, two-bath place (it comes complete with, literally, a man cave). “'Brad has had his eye on it for some time but he decided now was the right time to buy because he wanted a place to call his own,” a source tells the Mail.

"He needs somewhere quiet that doesn't have memories of Angie and where he can be alone and think about what he does next." Another source says Brad is trying to make his relationship work, and his mother is on board to help the couple, and will be meeting the actress next week. Meanwhile, TMZ reports Pitt—and his enormous beard—were spotted at the LA home he shares with Jolie on Sunday.
