CLAIM: Angelina & Brad’s Kids Enjoy “Out of Control” Sugar and Violence Binges

Truth rating: 1

According to OK! magazine, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s children are “Out of Control!” “In fact, the kids are so unruly that friends of the World’s Most Glamorous Couple are worried,” declares the tabloid. A so-called “pal” tells the magazine, “The kids eat fast food every day, doughnuts for breakfast,” singling out little Shiloh as a “sugar addict, screaming when she’s cut off!”

Hmm. “There’s not much any of us can do but sit and watch,” explains the alleged friend. “The kids are all goofed up on sugar and after Shiloh has five cookies in a row and Maddox downs his third orange Fanta, it’s crazy hour.” And what does “crazy hour” supposedly look like? “Toys fly. Kids melt down into tantrums. There’s fighting, it’s just a zoo,” claims the OK! source. Besides their sweet teeth, the kids also are said to have a taste for “faux violence.” The “pal” relates, “Angelina lets the boys play with guns, rifles, though they are unloaded and some are just toys. Others are real and pricey antiques – they’re the ones the boys use to pretend kill the staff.”

So OK! is claiming, thanks to some colorful stories from this family “pal,” that Jolie and Pitt’s little kids love sugar and goofing off. The story is newsworthy only if you’ve never met little kids. It’s almost as though OK! is trying to use this nonsense to distract everyone from last week’s 100 percent wrong cover story announcing Pitt and Jolie’s wedding. In any case, recent “reporting” suggests that OK! has very little idea what’s actually going on with the Pitt-Jolie family.

As for the kids being “out of control,” a source close to the couple tells Gossip Cop the youngsters have a fondness for junk food – as Pitt and Jolie have repeatedly acknowledged – but that there’s no truth to the premise that their behavior has turned the household into a zoo. We’re also told the boys’ alleged “gun” use has been completely exaggerated beyond the harmless, run-of-the-mill horseplay it actually is.
