Angelina Jolie Bodyguard Affair: A Better Father Figure Than Brad Pitt?
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s former bodyguard, Mark Billingham, claimed that he almost fathered the couple’s six children. He added that the couple trusted him so much with the kids that they would let him take them anywhere he wanted on his own.Advertisement
Billingham served the star couple for 18 months, before he realized that his own family life was “lost direction.” He added that he never had a private life and that he was exhausted. The security guard claimed that he even fathered the kids, Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and the twins Vivienne and Knox, 8, as long as he worked for Brangelina.
However, although Angelina Jolie and Pitt had vested their trust in him, they still feared the children getting kidnapped and being held for ransom. “The biggest concern for them was the kidnapping of the kids, it’s all about money,” the Sun quoted him as saying. “Even when I wanted to bring in extra people, they wouldn’t let any of those near the kids.”
He added that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were extremely protective about their six children and were always mindful about who they would allow near their kids, and that even included the security professionals. The Mail Online reported that according to Billingham, the guards “could look out for them from a distance but they couldn’t physically touch them.”
Billingham, who has also worked for other celebrities including Sean Penn, Russell Crowe, and Tom Cruise, claimed that it was tougher protecting Pitt that Jolie as “People love her but hate him.”
He added, “You have to figure out a way of protecting them from all that. It was challenging, but interesting.”
Billingham also spent much of his time protecting the couple from stalkers. Although he has now quit his job, he still at times does freelance work for the couple, the Daily Star reported.
