And there was us thinking that Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt and them other two adopted ones were perfect example of a beautiful fully-functioning family. Shows what we know, eh?
Recent reports are suggesting that Angelina Jolie is suffering from a touch of post-natal depression following the birth of baby Shiloh Nouvel, and she's freaking out to such an extent that she's telephoning Brad Pitt – who's busy filming the pointless Ocean's 13 – up to ten times a day and getting her friends to spy on him. Angelina Jolie is apparently worried that Brad Pitt is spending too much time with George Clooney. Not because he'll be surrounded by beautiful women all the time, but because she knows what Brad gets like around people with a social conscience – he'll have George knocked up and living in Namibia before you can say Sky Captain And The World Of Tomorrow.
The story of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie is the story of the most beautiful family in the world, starring two colonial overlords and a lump of wax. It's a story we've all heard a million times before: boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl, boy makes a film with another girl and ditches first girl who won't shut up about it, boy doesn't get married to new girl but gets her pregnant anyway, boy and girl move to Namibia and give birth to a baby with a stupid name, Namibia cooks some meat.
Lovely. But that's not the end of the story, because Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have reportedly hit a bit of a bumpy patch in their relationship. We've been here before, of course – rumours of a Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie split are never too far away – but the latest rockiness, according to Grazia, stems from Brad Pitt promising to take a year off work after Shiloh Nouvel was born to help Angelina Jolie raise her. Because, in short, he hasn't done that at all – Brad Pitt has skipped off to Las Vegas to film Ocean's 13. And that's got Angelina Jolie's knickers in a twist, as a source told the magazine:
“Angie is suffering a little from the baby blues but she’s been extra stressed since Brad left, asking friends to report back on his every move and sometimes calling him up to 10 times a day. Brad has had to tell her, ‘Stop smothering me!’. He says she needs to relax and stop treating him like a kid, but Angelina has been telling friends she’s unhappy because they talked about not working for a year after Shiloh was born. Angie knows George [Clooney] is a party hound who is surrounded by women 24/7. It isn’t an ideal scenario for a guy with a family.”
Of course, Angelina Jolie isn't exactly sticking to this whole 'year off' thing. As well as playing the crusading widow of Daniel Pearl in an upcoming movie, she's also playing a funny tiger that does kung fu. And besides, Angelina Jolie should learn to trust Brad Pitt. After all, it's not like he makes a habit of sleeping with his co-stars, is it?
