Is Angelina Jolie’s former bodyguard *really* selling her nude pics?
Are the halls of Hollywood’s glitz and glamour more demanding than the frontlines of the British Army’s air service? For Mark Billingham, a former bodyguard for A-list power couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, the answer might surprise you. His experiences navigating the world of celebrity security was as demanding as his twenty-seven-year tenure in the military, a challenge that he discussed in a 2016 interview with The Sun.
Billingham’s shift from military service to private security for Hollywood’s elite was a distinct change. His role, though, wasn’t just about keeping the couple safe; he also formed a unique bond with their six children: Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox, and Vivienne. Reflecting on his time with the family, he remarked, “The military set me up perfectly for what I did with them.”
Does that mean there were any nude photos in the meantime? Let’s dive into the details and see if there are any nude truths of the matter worth writing home to.
The safety of Pitt and Jolie’s children was paramount for the couple. Being incredibly selective about who could spend time with their children, they entrusted Billingham with exclusive access to the kids. Billingham, living with the family and effectively “fathering” the Jolie-Pitt kids during his stint, remembers the tight bonds that formed.
“We had a great chemistry, and they trusted me with the kids,” he shares. And this trust went beyond normal bodyguard duties – he took the kids swimming and was a constant companion throughout their daily routines.
Danger isn’t just on the battlefield. When you’re guarding Hollywood royalty, threats can lurk in the most unexpected corners, as Billingham discovered. One unforgettable incident involved an aggressive stalker who infiltrated a crowd while Jolie was filming. Days later, when the man attempted to approach Jolie with personal photos to sign, Billingham stepped in, ultimately leading to the stalker’s arrest.
“I had to make sure their image was protected,” Billingham reflects, his responsibilities also extending to managing the family’s public image, right down to ensuring their clothes were wrinkle-free.
His time with the couple also gave Billingham unique insights into the couple’s dynamics. He found Jolie to be the “tough one,” predicting that she could easily survive his Special Air Service training, unlike Pitt. But he also observed a peculiar lack of social skills, common in celebrities insulated by their fame.
“’How do I go down to that bar?’ They’d ask, because of the world they live in, they just haven’t done something like that for so long. I found that weird.”
Despite the unique experiences and unforgettable moments, the job took a heavy toll on Billingham’s personal life. The constant demands left him feeling exhausted, and his own family life started to crumble. After only seventeen months with the couple, he decided to step away. “In 17 months, I was only home for six weeks. It was just too full-on.”
In the aftermath of his time with the couple, Pitt and Jolie’s relationship unraveled. Jolie filed for divorce in 2016, shocking the world and even Billingham. Now, Brad Pitt is reportedly selling his $40 million Los Angeles estate that he once shared with Angelina Jolie and their six children. As they continue to navigate their ongoing legal battles and child custody issues, one can’t help but wonder what’s next for this once golden Hollywood couple?
