Vivienne Jolie-Pitt’s Maleficent Role Triggered “Major” Fight Among Siblings?
The National Enquirer is bored, so it’s picking on Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s young children again. Sensationalizing the lives of the Brangelina brood is a longtime favorite pastime of the magazine, which has published false stories about Pax, Maddox, Shiloh, and Zahara, while inventing controversies about Jolie’s upcoming film Maleficent and portraying her household as a den of violence and chaos. So it’s no surprise the Enquirer is now trying to get everyone to believe that little Vivienne, who has a bit part in Maleficent, has set off squabbling among “Angie’s Hollywood Brats!”
“At first Vivienne’s siblings were just mildly envious of her big break, but their jaws dropped when they learned their little sis was getting paid a whopping $3,000 a week,” insiders tell the Enquirer. A “source” tells the tabloid, “Her screen debut has caused a major rift in the family. Now they all want their own turn in the spotlight.” Of course, Zahara and Pax already do have on-screen time in Maleficent, and Shiloh appeared in Pitt’s The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. And, oh yeah, they’re all young kids who have everything they need and aren’t competing with each other for movie roles.
The idea that the Jolie-Pitt breakfast table is dominated by jealousy over a 4-year-old’s temporary paycheck is as absurd as it sounds. Jolie and Pitt’s children will all have ample opportunities to break into showbiz — if they so desire — and none of them is enraged by Vivienne’s Maleficent role. A source close to the family tells Gossip Cop the Enquirer report is “silly” and “100 percent wrong.”
