I’m Not Usually a Tabloid Guy But…
As one who reads a ton of different blogs on a variety of different subjects, I happened to stumble upon Jen and Diana’s latest post on Disgrasian about Angelina Jolie, as a parent. As is with most tabloids which (I swear I don’t usually read), it’s hard to really know how much is really true. So I do take this with a HUGE grain of salt. However, I’ve always wondered what the family dynamics were like for the Jolie-Pitt family.
I understand what Jen and Diana are poking fun at towards the end of the post, but to me it’s not all that funny. If any of this body guard’s account are even remotely true, it’s hard to imagine how these kids are coping with all of it. I’ve often wondered how Pax and Maddox would grow up in the Jolie-Pitt family. I wonder what will happen when/if these kids start thinking about searching for their birth parents?
“In my opinion, the real Angelina is self-centered and a control freak. She has no patience at all. She doesn’t do things out of the kindness of her heart. And she’s totally psycho,” Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt’s former bodyguard Bill tells In Touch exclusively.
In an exclusive interview with In Touch, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s former bodyguard describes what he claims to be a woman whose erratic behavior, yelling fits and unreasonable demands deeply hurt not only staff members — but especially Brad and their six children. “Angelina has a public and a private persona,” claims the former bodyguard, who for security reasons chooses only to be identified by his first name, Bill. “In my opinion, the real Angelina is self-centered and a control freak. She has no patience at all. She doesn’t do things out of the kindness of her heart. And she’s totally psycho.” While Brad is laid-back and patient with his kids’ often wild behavior, Angelina is anything but. “She screams and yells a lot, then walks away,” Bill says, explaining that Angelina would often “disappear into her suite for hours,” leaving staffers — and Brad — to deal with her children. “She would punish them with silence,” says Bill, adding, “I think she could be abusive at times in a mental way.” If the children were to get upset by her withholding behavior, he says, Angelina didn’t seem to care. “She is not moved by tears,” he explains. Still more disturbing, he recalls, Angelina has a “quirky habit” of “giggling when one of her kids would start crying.”
The bodyguard, who was working for Brad and Angelina at the start of their relationship, remembers “a lot of laughing and fun” and “spontaneous sex” back then. Now, though, the couple often sleeps in separate bedrooms, and that honeymoon phase seems to be ancient history. Even when they aren’t actively arguing, Bill says, Angelina “nitpicks” Brad — criticizing him constantly. “She says things like, ‘Are you going to wear that shirt again today?’ and tells him he’s like another one of the kids.” According to Bill, Brad has come to dread Angelina’s phone calls. “She’ll call him from the set to interrogate him,” Bill explains. “His face goes white, and he just stares at his feet.” When Angelina’s yelling gets to be too much, Brad will “put her on speaker and walk away from the phone,” Bill reveals. “Angelina will hang up and continue calling until one of the staff picks up.”
