Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have often been referred to as two of the most powerful and influential people in the entertainment industry. The pair were involved in a scandal when Jolie was accused of causing the divorce of Pitt and his former wife Jennifer Aniston in October 2005. Jolie admitted that she fell in love with Pitt during the filming of Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005), but dismissed allegations of an affair.

Jolie and Pitt tried their best to shun media attention. But in January 2006, she confirmed they were expecting their first child together – a daughter named Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt. In total, they have six children, three adopted: Maddox, 21, Pax, 18, Zahara, 17, Shiloh, 16, and 14-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. The couple were legally married on August 14, 2014, in Los Angeles. They had a private wedding ceremony in Château Miraval, France, on August 23, 2014. But on September 19, 2016, Jolie shocked the world after filing for divorce from Pitt, citing irreconcilable differences.

In September 2016, the FBI and the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services investigated Pitt for child abuse. He was accused of being “verbally abusive” and “physical” towards one of his children. The Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services eventually ruled that Pitt did not physically abuse any of his children. Pitt was also cleared by the FBI of any wrongdoing. A judge gave Pitt 50-50 custody of the children after a closed-door trial in which the allegations were aired.

Angelina Jolie is fiercely protective of her children and their well-being. The Oscar-winning actress spends a fortune on bodyguards to protect her six kids.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s Former Bodyguard Calls Himself Their Children’s ‘Unofficial Father’

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s former bodyguard has spoken out about looking after the couple and their children. Mark Billingham spent 27 years in the British Army’s Special Air Service. He served in Iraq and won the Queen’s Commendation for Bravery. Billingham, known by his nickname, Billy, was the family bodyguard for 18 months. He became so close to their children, he calls himself their “unofficial father.”

After leaving the role, Billingham is working for British broadcaster Channel 4 on a program called SAS: Who Dares Wins. On the show, Billingham puts 25 civilians through an SAS selection test in the Ecuadorian jungle. The task is physically and mentally tough and Billingham does not think Pitt could handle it.

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 reportedly spends $2 million to ensure her children are safe and secure at all times. The former bodyguard of the family revealed there is a specific bodyguard assigned to each child to look after. Billingham revealed that Pitt and Jolie were very concerned their children would be abducted by gangs. 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.”

He added: “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.”

Stalkers were another big issue for the former red carpet darlings. 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,” Billingham continued. “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

Despite the seriousness of his job, Billingham revealed there were some fun moments. “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 farted, and we couldn’t get out.” But in the end, the bodyguard resigned from the role as he found the job kept him away from his own six children.

“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.”
