We've all seen the photos of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie taking their six adorable tots on exotic vacations, making moon-eyes at one another on the red carpet and generally seeming too perfect to be real. Of course, few people actually spend time with Brangelina's family behind closed doors. According to one former employee, the truth isn't pretty.
In a new interview with In Touch, one of Jolie and Pitt's ex-bodyguards claims that Angelina is not who she appears to be. "Angelina has a public and private persona," Bill (no last name given) told the magazine. Bill says that the real Jolie is a control freak prone to screaming at her kids, then not speaking to them for hours. Even worse, he says she doesn't care when the children cry, and often reacts to their tears by giggling.
Oh, and there's more: Bill alleges that on top of being a bad mother, Jolie is a terrible wife whose easy-going husband is subjected to constant criticism -- he says she has yelled at Pitt on speakerphone when he's on set.
This is not the first time the power couple has been criticized by a former bodyguard. Last year, they managed to stifle an unflattering book proposal by longtime bodyguard Mickey Brett. Oddly, Brett's complaints were the opposite: He was crazy about Jolie and had few kind words for Pitt.
While we're sure that the Jolie-Pitt household has its share of tension -- with six young children zipping around, how could it not? -- every unflattering claim by a presumably disgruntled ex-employee should be taken with a grain of salt. And when the publication has likely paid money for the dirt, we'll consider taking a whole salt shaker.
