Brangelina bodyguard in trouble?
Hollywood couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's chief bodyguard, Irish-born Mickey Brett, faces legal action in Namibia, where they had their first child, on charges of assaulting a restaurant owner. According to accuser Theuns Duvenhage's lawyer, Piet Burger, Brett will be summoned before a Namibian court for allegedly beating up Duvenhage and damaging his eye. AFP report that in his complaint, Duvenhage says he was shooed off from an area where the Hollywood stars were present by the bodyguards but admitted making an "offending sign" before driving off. Duvenhage, who is claiming 60,000 Namibian dollars (8,912 dollars/ 7,057 euros) in damages, says Brett gave chase, forced his car off the road and then hit, kicked and punched him. Meanwhile, Jolie and Pitt became the parents of their first biological child, Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt, on May 27 in Namibia, where the alleged high-handed behavior of their bodyguards has been the subject of considerable controversy.
