It is often said that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are two of the most powerful and influential people in the entertainment business. In October 2005, Angelina Jolie was accused of causing Pitt and his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston to split up, which led to a scandal involving the two. Angelina Jolie said she fell in love with Pitt while they were filming Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005), but she denied that they were having an affair.
Angelina Jolie and Pitt did everything they could to avoid being in the news. But in January 2006, she said they were expecting their first child together, a daughter they named Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt. They have six children, three of whom they adopted: Maddox, 21, Pax, 18, Zahara, 17, Shiloh, 16, and 14-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. The wedding took place in Los Angeles on August 14, 2014. On August 23, 2014, they got married privately at Chateau Miraval in France. But on September 19, 2016, Angelina Jolie shocked the whole world when she filed for divorce from Pitt, saying that they couldn’t get along anymore.

In September 2016, the FBI and the Department of Children and Family Services in Los Angeles looked into allegations of child abuse against Pitt. He was said to have been “verbally and physically abusive” to one of his children. In the end, the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services said that Pitt had not hurt any of his children physically. The FBI also said that Pitt had done nothing wrong. After the allegations were talked about in a trial behind closed doors, the judge gave Pitt joint custody of the children.
Angelina Jolie is very worried about the health and safety of her children. The Oscar-winning actress spends a lot of money on bodyguards to keep her six kids safe.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s Former Bodyguard Calls Himself Their Children’s ‘Unofficial Father’
The bodyguard who used to work for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie has talked about taking care of them and their kids. Mark Billingham was in the Special Air Service of the British Army for 27 years. He worked in Iraq and was given the Queen’s Commendation for Bravery for his bravery. Billy, which is Billingham’s nickname, was the family’s bodyguard for 18 months. He got to know their kids so well that he now calls himself their “unofficial father.”
Billingham left the job and is now working for the British TV station Channel 4 on a show called SAS: Who Dares Wins. On the show, Billingham puts 25 non-military people through a SAS test in the jungle of Ecuador. Billingham doesn’t think Pitt could do the job because it’s hard on the body and the mind.
The veteran 57, told Page Six:
Brad wouldn’t last long because he wouldn’t have any cream to put on his face. It would be too sweaty and uncomfortable for him. He’s too pretty! But Angie could do it. She’d probably be the only one with balls at the end. She would stick it out.
Angelina Jolie Reportedly Spends $2 Million Dollars On Security For Her Children.
Angelina Jolie is said to spend $2 million to make sure her kids are always safe and sound. The family’s former bodyguard said that each child has his or her own bodyguard to look after them. Billingham said that Pitt and Jolie were very afraid that gangs would abduct their children. He admits,
I was Brad and Angelina’s head of security. The military set me up perfectly for what I did with them. The biggest concern for them was the kidnappings of the kids, it’s all about money.
Angie and Brad are very worried about who goes near their children I could take the kids anywhere I wanted to on my own. No one else was allowed to do that. Even when I wanted to bring in extra people, they wouldn’t let any of those near the kids. They could look out for them from a distance, but they couldn’t physically touch them. I took them swimming. I fathered them, basically.
The former red-carpet stars also had a lot of trouble with stalkers. Billingham explains,
We had stalkers in Chicago and New York which I had to deal with. Angie was filming in a crowd and everyone’s got smiles on their faces except for one guy. He looked angry. A few days later, we were coming off set, and this guy came running down the road with photos to be signed. Angie wanted to get out of the vehicle and do it, but I said no. I went and got the photos and took them to her. She was like, ‘Wow, these are personal photos.’ The guy ran off, then reappeared days later near the hotel, so I got him arrested.
He’d been following Angie all over the States. To me, it was a John Lennon classic,
Whenever she was on her own in pictures, he was smiling. Then whenever she was with Brad, he had this angry look on his face.
The Former Bodyguard Also Had Funny Moments With Brad And Angelina.
Billingham said that even though his job was serious, there were some fun times.
Once, it was Angie’s birthday, and we were all sitting in an Audi Q7. I hadn’t been working with them long and suddenly Brad has locked the doors and f*rted, and we couldn’t get out.
But in the end, the bodyguard quit because he couldn’t spend enough time with his own six kids.
I never had a private life. I was exhausted. I lost direction in my own family life. In 17 months I was only home for six weeks. It was just too full-on. I still do bits and pieces for Brad and Angie. She recently went into Iraq for the UN and I looked after her beforehand, got her ready for it and looked after Maddox when she went in.
