Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt kicked butt in Mr. and Mrs. Smith – and now their kids are allegedly following suit. According to the National Enquirer (pause for laughter), the couple’s children Maddox, Zahara, Pax and Shiloh “have turned violent!”

Yes, Jolie and Pitt supposedly have a “brawling mini-mob” on their hands, with the tab’s “insider” declaring, “It’s beyond chaos, and it’s driving Brad and Angelina crazy.” Wow. So what kind of “wild behavior” is allegedly rampant among Brangelina’s brood?

“The Jolie-Pitt household has almost become a war zone, with kids screaming, punching and scratching each other,” explains the Enquirer source. Pitt has to keep two-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne “protected and out of the fray” while the four older kids take turns bloodying each other. Meanwhile, Maddox has an alleged penchant for “knife play,” which the magazine says adds “a horrifying element of danger to the boys’ skirmishes.”

It sounds less like a household than some kind of lawless post-apocalyptic nightmare. But is it true? A source close to the family tells Gossip Cop that while the children have rambunctious moments, their behavior is no wilder than other kids their age, and the tabloid’s portrayal of the household as a “war zone” is totally off base.
