Brad Pitt Angelina Jolie bodyguard Mark Billingham recently opened up and handed out some shocking details about the celeb couple. He revealed that Jolie had a stalker who followed her almost everywhere. How the story went ahead, learn here.
Mark Billingham, a decorated ex-member of the British Army, worked as a bodyguard for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie for a year and a half. He recently opened up to The Sun and offered some shocking details that he observed in his 18-month tenure. Billingham was appointed as head of security for the A-Lister pairs and kids Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8.
While sharing his experience with the Hollywood pair, the former bodyguard particularly pointed out a scary incident involving Angelina Jolie. The star was being stalked by a creepy fellow who used to follow her almost everywhere.
Their popularity in social media has become a major safety concern for Hollywood celebs. These days, they are putting their personal lives into the public domain at an unprecedented rate. Fans can’t seem to get enough. Neither can their stalkers. As a result, those small glances are fueling stalker tendencies. Ideally, a stalker’s psyche varies from transforming from being an ordinary fan to someone who is completely obsessed with the pin-up.
Angelina Jolie had a stalker!
According to the Brad Pitt Angelina Jolie bodyguard, the stalker was highly infatuated with the Salt actress. Disappointment was written on his face when he saw Jolie with Pitt. Stalking had been a big issue for Brangelina. Thus, Bellingham took every possible measure to keep the A-Lister couple and their reputation intact.
Billingham recalled and said:
“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. 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,” learned news.com.au.
