Angelina Jolie's brother James Haven seen for first time in years

Angelina Jolie's secretive brother James Haven has been hunkering down during the pandemic at his girlfriend's run-down block of apartments in a suburb of Los Angeles, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal.

Despite being born into royalty, Haven, 47, was spotted in public for the first time in years, repeatedly visiting the modest home of karate instructor Ashley Reign in the San Fernando Valley.

Oscar-winner Jon Voight's eldest child kept a low profile while arriving at the property in November and December last year and again this month, as coronavirus numbers soared in California.

He was seen going incognito by wearing a face mask and hat at all times while keeping his sunglasses on even after dark.

The rare sightings came after the 20th anniversary last year of Haven's biggest claim to fame – his kiss with younger sister Angie on the red carpet in 2000.

Haven went on to work as a full-time nanny for Angie's six kids, but he is thought to have been 'dismissed' from that role following her divorce from Brad Pitt and has not been seen in public with his sister in recent times.

A source said: 'Angelina and James are widely believed to have drifted apart some years ago.

'They used to be inseparable; he was very much her go-to companion and was her best friend for so many years as well as a devoted brother.

'James helped raise her kids and he would baby sit whenever Angie and Brad wanted private time. It's fair to say he was one of just a handful of people they felt comfortable looking after them.

'But all of a sudden and with no real explanation their communication seemed to just stop out of nowhere. He does his thing, she does hers and while they may be cordial from a distance you certainly don't see or hear of them being together.

'Obviously only they know what really happened, but it's sad and the situation doesn't look like changing any time soon.'

The Canoga Park building complex where Haven now hangs out is a far cry from Haven and Angie's Beverly Hills upbringing and her current A-list lifestyle.

It has one neighboring apartment building which is completely burnt out and boarded up.

One bedroom units go for just $,1450, cats can be seen hunting rats in the gardens and discarded furniture piles up on the sidewalk outside.

Just around the corner there is a notorious strip club called Xposed where two men were killed in a 2016 shootout over a lost wallet. 

Angie and James are pictured as kids. 'They used to be inseparable; he was very much her go-to companion and was her best friend for so many years as well as a devoted brother,' a source said
