Bodyguard Wants to Spill the Brangelina Beans

 

There's no doubt this would be a best seller.

 

A former bodyguard for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie has been shopping around a tell-all memoir and TV show of his time with the stars -- which has caused the couple to move into defense mode.

According to the NY Daily News, Brangelina have hired lawyers in both the U.S. and the U.K. after hearing ex-watchman Mickey Brett's plan to sell some stories about their fam. Sources say that Mickey had plenty of lovely things to say about Angelina -- but Brad? Not so much.

Though this juicy book was going to focus on other stars Mickey had worked for, like Sandra Bullock, Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman, Sylvester Stallone and Richard Gere, most of the goods were on the Jolie-Pitt clan.

Lawyers for Brad and Angie are already discrediting the bodyguard, telling the paper that, not only is he bound by a confidentiality agreement, but that he had lied on his resume about his qualifications. Apparently, Mickey claimed to be a former British SAS commando -- as it turns out, he wasn't.

But Mickey's attorney blames the bad press on the book's ghostwriter, Robin McGibbon, who he says made the stories out to be juicier than they were to attract buyers. Robin, of course, denies that -- but it seems that Brad and Angelina's attorney's have taken a bit of the wind out of her sails.

"Mickey was definitely going to consider a book or TV deal if the offer was good enough," Robin told the Daily News, but at least for now, "there's not going to be any book."

No book? Booooo. Come on - that would be some kind of page-turner.
