Who wants to kidnap Angelina's newest edition Pax?
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt say they were 'stunned' when they found out that someone intended to kidnapped the newest edition to their family, Pax.
Life and Style Weekly is reporting that the Jolie-Pitt security detail finds the threat "credible and meticulously planned."
The news evidently shocked the beautiful couple.
"They're highly skilled operatives with little regard for human life," a security insider told the magazine.
"Information came out that leaders of the gang ordered their LA members to devise a plan to kidnap Pax before demanding a ransom of $100m — equal to the profit from a year of drug dealing — for his safe return.
"Brad and Angie would have a number of days to hand over the money or risk the boy's life."
Brad, 43, was left stunned when members of his security team revealed the plot.
"The life drained out of Brad when he heard that," a friend of the couple said.
"He was a wreck. He didn't want to tell Angie the extent of the threat, especially not until she returned stateside.
"But he had no choice. She needed to know so she could take the necessary precautions."
Angelina, 31, was left in tears when Brad told her about the awful plot.
"She sobbed that she'd die if anything happened to Pax."
A representative for Brad Pitt denied the story. But Brad is said to have increased security around his family.
"They have gone into total lockdown mode," the pal said.
"He's added manpower around their LA home and has told security he doesn't want Angie or the kids leaving the house without at least five security people."
But the added security doesn't appear to have set Angelina's mind at rest.
"She isn't sleeping and barely eats," the friend said.
"She doesn't let the kids out of her sight. She seems on the verge of a breakdown."
Scary stuff! If US Weekly is correct then it might just be a big publicity stunt!
