Brad Pitt: The Paparazzi Are In My Kids Face, "It's Disgusting"
"I understand the tabloid machine," he says. "There's money to be made off of Angie and me, but it has gotten so out-of-hand. There's no decency, even when it comes to our kids."
"I mean, yesterday Angie was taking Maddie off to school," he continues angrily. "There were 30 paparazzi outside. One guy sticks a video camera in Mad's face, yelling, 'Maddox! Maddox!' He doesn't get a response. He doesn't know my boy. Mad is already savvy to this, unfortunately. But my 2-year-old dreads being anyplace there are cameras. It scares her. They're all in her face. My kids are faced with this every day! It's disgusting. So we've been run out of L.A., all the major cities. We just can't live there. You don't understand--this is the hunt, the hunt, the hunt! I thought it might be over a year ago. It's gotten worse."
Ok, yes I read this and feel for them, but on the other hand, they have created this media frenzy. They have "options" when they take Maddox to school, for one, leave the other kids at home, or in the car with a bodyguard. There is no need to parade the whole family into his school. The paparazzi know what to expect, that's why they're there. If you don't give them anything, they'll go away.
The Jolie-Pitt's have four children, three of whom are adopted; Zahara, 2, Pax, 3, and Maddox, 6, and a biological daughter, Shiloh, 16 months.
