If he’s not browsing in motorbike shops, he’s buying art and visiting old pals in Birmingham.
He snapped up a canvas of Prince William and Kate, plus images of The Queen and Amy Winehouse, versions of which Mark Owen and Adele also own.
A source said: “There is a lot of buzz about Bambi at the moment. As Brad’s here with the family for up to two years, it makes sense to fill the house with art by British artists.
“He already has a Banksy, which he bought for £1million at a London auction, but shipped it to LA.”

Earlier this week he went to see a lawyer pal in Hall Green, Birmingham.
The star turned up out of the blue at Warwick Solicitors to catch up with Mohammed Hussain, the firm’s owner, who also counts Mike Tyson, Imran Khan, Wasim Akram and boxer Joe Egan as friends.
Dad-of-one Mr Hussain met Brad when he was in the security team on 2000 movie Snatch.
Mohammed said: “Brad’s a lovely guy, one of the most humble men you could meet.”
Brad had a chat and posed with staff for a group photo before getting back in his car.
What a chap.
