Welp, Brad Pitt's former bodyguard basically just kicked him while he's down

It's not a secret that Brad Pitt hasn't been taking his divorce from Angelina Jolie very well — especially when it comes to being separated from his six children. An insider recently claimed that Pitt has been beside himself, crying a lot and turning to his parents for help during the difficult separation.

"He can’t believe this is what his life has become, and he’s in bad shape, but the kids are the only thing he’s hanging onto," the source told the Daily Mail. "He’s been leaning heavily on his family and speaks to his parents and close friends and his manager constantly. His mom has been talking to him constantly."

The whole situation is obviously terribly sad, but for some reason, Pitt and Jolie's former bodyguard Mark Billingham doesn't seem to care about the family's privacy. In fact, Billingham's come forward to claim his 15 minutes of fame and to tell the world what his life was like with the Jolie-Pitt clan — even making the outrageous claim that he practically fathered Pitt's children.

"It was clear from the start we had a great chemistry and they trusted me with the kids," Billingham said in a recent interview with The Sun. "We got very close, I was living with them all the time. I could take the kids anywhere I wanted to on my own. No one else was allowed to do that... I took them swimming. I fathered them, basically.

"What surprised me was their low level of common sense," Billingham added, referring to Jolie and Pitt. "I found it crazy when they would ask me questions like, ‘How do I go down to that bar?’ and ‘What do I need to do to get there?’ They’re not stupid, but because of the world they live in they just haven’t done something like that for so long. I found that weird."

Billingham isn't the only former Jolie/Pitt bodyguard who has been spilling the beans. In late September, Mark Behar, the man who worked as their bodyguard on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, claimed that Pitt definitely had relations with Jolie while he was still married to Jennifer Aniston.

Don't bodyguards abide by some kind of code that states you shouldn't divulge information about the people you are protecting? Seems like if you are leaking family secrets, you might come off as untrustworthy — which could make things difficult next time you are searching for employment. Just some food for thought.
