Pitt's parents to move in with Brangelina

It has emerged that Brad Pitt's mum Jane and dad Bill are moving in with their son and his partner Angelina Jolie when they start living in the South of France full-time.

 

Work has begun on a granny flat for them at the star couple's 35million pounds Chateau Miraval estate in Brignoles.

 

The Pitt seniors will then move there from Springfield, Missouri, to help look after Pitt and Jolie's six kids, reports the Sun.

 

"The whole family is going to move there as soon as the renovations are done. At the moment they have six nannies -- one for each of the kids -- and the plan is to get rid of the helpers and rely on Bill and Jane," said a source.

 

"The annexe they will live in is an old building which used to be used as a dovecote. It's big enough to have a sitting room, kitchen and a couple of bedrooms. It will make a lovely little cottage for them," the source added.

 

Apart from their daughter Shiloh, 4, and two-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, the superstar couple has adopted sons Maddox, 9, Pax, 7, and daughter Zahara, 6.

 

They have always taken their brood with them as they jetted around the globe for work but all that is about to change now the kids are older.

 

"They don't want them dragged around the world any longer. Brad is traditional and wants them to put down roots and have friends and go to the same school, rather than constantly moving," said the source.

 

"The plan is both of them will do voiceover work in a recording studio in the chateau's grounds. Other than that, they'll pretty much retire from Hollywood for a while," the source added.

Britney Spears is being accused of plagiarism and will face a multi-million dollars lawsuit for the video of her new single 'Hold It Against Me' which debuted last week.

 

The singer is accused of "ripping off" the rock ballad 'If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body Would You Hold It Against Me' by the Bellamy Brothers.

 

According to reports, the American singers claim Spears' song is too close to their own 1979 hit which topped the charts in six countries, and David and Howard Bellamy are set to met with lawyers.

 

'Howard and I have no personal beef with Britney. She's a talented gal. But professionally we feel completely ripped off,' the Daily Mail quoted David, as telling the Daily Star.

 

'We will without doubt take the appropriate legal action if our attorneys agree we've been ripped off,' he added.

 

A spokesman for Britney told the paper: "If this is now a legal matter then I am afraid we would have nothing to say until our lawyers have been alerted."

Fatal Attraction star Glenn Close is reportedly set to play Susan Boyle in the biopic of the spinster's life.

 

Glenn said "aye" to film bosses this week and is about to start work on her SuBo shuffle and catchphrase "bloody fantastic", reports the Sun.

 

A source said: "The film is full steam ahead now the leading role is sorted. It was always going to be a tricky one to cast.

 

"SuBo's incredible story is so well-known across the planet that the film is bound to go down a storm.

 

"Glenn has played some imposing women in the past including Cruella de Vil and Alex Forrest, who boils the pet rabbit in Fatal Attraction.

 

"But Subo might just be her biggest role yet."

 

Glenn has been nominated five times for an Oscar, won three Emmys and has picked up two Golden Globes.
