OK Mag: The Jolie-Pitt kids are “all goofed up on sugar, cookies and Fanta”

Much like last week’s Enquirer story, OK! Magazine decided to pull out their hair regarding the dietary issues of the Jolie-Pitt children. A lot of the stuff that was in last week’s article is here: the kids love sugary treats, Brad tries to get the kids to eat healthy, and The Villainess Jolie merely pours more Cheetos and soda into her kids. Doughnuts for breakfast! Shiloh loves cookies! And Angelina is all about letting the kids play TOY guns! OMG.

Sugar binges, screaming tantrums, violent fights, and more — Brangelina’s brood is so unruly, insiders say they’re really worried about the kids’ health and hygiene!

Any household with six children is sure to be hectic, but insiders say it’s an absolute zoo with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie‘s family. According to a new report in OK! magazine, the couples friends’ say the kids — Maddox, 10, Pax, 8, Zahara, 7, Shiloh, 5, and Knox and Vivienne, 3 — are on the verge of a melt down!

“There’s not much any of us can do but sit and watch,” a pal says. “The kids are all goofed up on sugar and after Shiloh has five cookies in a row and Maddox downs his third orange Fanta, it’s crazy hour. That’s what we call it: Crazy Hour. Toys fly. Kids melt down into tantrums. There’s fighting, it’s just a zoo.”

Angelina has called junk food the “family weakness” in the past, but that doesn’t stop her from letting the kids eat whatever they want.

“The kids eat fast food every day, doughnuts for breakfast,” a pal reveals. “Shiloh’s a sugar addict, screaming when she’s cut off.”

Despite all the sugar, the pal says Angelina doesn’t enforce teeth brushing. “Angelina does not insist the kids brush every day or wash hands before meals,” the insider says. “They bathe whenever they want, which is not often. Brad’s friends say that his kids smell like Johnny Depp.”

The kids’ safety is also a concern to friends. “The twins are in that stage where they put everything in their mouths,” an insider reveals. “Brad and Angie don’t always catch them and the worry is that one day they’ll get something really toxic. On top of that, it’s downright gross.”

But most troubling is the violence! “Angelina lets the boys play with guns, rifles, though they are unloaded and some are just toys,” the friend says. “Others are real and pricey antiques — they’re the ones the boys use to pretend kill the staff.”

Angelina isn’t disturbed by the faux-violence. “Apparently, Angie actually thinks it’s funny when her kids pretend to shoot people,” the friend says. “She laughs out loud. A lot of people think she and Brad need to put a stop to it, but that’s not likely to happen.”

[From Hollywood Life]

Haha, “Brad’s friends say that his kids smell like Johnny Depp.” The worst thing ever! Considering Angelina always looks like she’s recently bathed and Brad rarely looks clean, I’m guessing that the whole “unclean!” issue is something the kids learned from their dad. As for the junk food – well, I think Brad and Angelina definitely take shortcuts in the kids’ diets. I kind of like how un-Goopy the whole thing is, but yes, the kids should probably be eating healthier. As for the playing with guns stuff… I don’t know. That disturbs me, but we don’t know what’s really going on there. I don’t like the speculation that these kids have issues with weaponry or anything.

The National Enquirer also has a story about Brad and Angelina’s wedding plans, because… why not? This story has a twist, though – when Brad and Ellen DeGeneres were hanging out in New Orleans, Ellen was allegedly encouraging Brad to “abandon their pledge not to wed until gay marriage is legal.” Ellen apparently told Brad, “You guys can get hitched AND still fight the good fight for marriage equality.” And Brad agreed or something. Whatever. The Enquirer also says Brad is getting Botox in preparation for the wedding.

    “They bathe whenever they want, which is not often. Brad’s friends say that his kids smell like Johnny Depp.”

    Best faux quote ever.

  2. Dibba says:

    If true, at least they aren’t perfect. I can see alot of this being true. Six kids and they are very busy with other projects. They aren’t that different than alot of families. I would think with nannies they could be a bit healthier. I get tired of battling my child, but I would pay a nanny to do it if I could! I love the non-Goopiness of this. The gun thing is disturbing and I think Maddox had knives and stuff too. I worry about him, he should be with peers at his age.

    • Leikyn says:

      No parent in his or her right mind would have real guns, antique or otherwise, in a place where children could access them. Ms.Jolie and Mr.Pitt, whatever one thinks of them, have always demonstrated responsible parenting and do not endanger their children. My brothers and I, along with all the neighborhood kids, played with toy guns and knives when we were kids. To date, none of us has maimed or killed anyone. My kids played with toy guns. They aren’t going around gangsta style looking to make a hit. Good parents teach their kids real vs. fake and gun safety no matter which one it is. A lot of parents are anti-toy gun. That is fine. But those of us that DID play with them, or let our kids play with them, aren’t automatic psychopaths in the making.

      • Shay Kay says:

        My sister, cousin, and I played cops and robbers as children with the toy gun and handcuffs and thus far none of us are criminals, cops, or especially enamored of guns.
        My children play with nerf guns/water guns and have been taught the difference in that and pistol/shotguns.
        I doubt the JP children are any different. As long as they are not playing with real guns (even antique guns or ones that don’t work) which I would consider a problem because DUH it is a REAL GUN!
        As to their diet, well I agree with the poster above who would love to be able to pay the nanny to fight with the children over what foods they eat.It’s hard enough to convince myself I don’t need a Reese’s peanut butter cup and convincing the kids is a PAIN!

  3. mln76 says:

    I kind of love hearing tales of the kids being wild. I’m not saying I believe this story word for word but I doubt they have a quiet household with 6 mild-mannered kids. The kids look happy and like they play a lot and unlike say Suri Cruise you never see them having public tantrums just smiling and playing. I bet Shiloh and Pax are both handfuls though. I think their household is probably akin to one of those old episodes of the Little Rascals.

    • almond says:

      it sounds like it could be a true story but only because kids are kids and kids like soda, candies and fast food. and we all used to play with toy guns before overprotection was an issue on each parent´s table. so i quite like the idea of the pj-kids beeing kind of oldschool :-)

  4. teri says:

    Love how some just blame AJ and not the father also, it’s always Angelina harming her children. Out on the run they grab some snacks that we see, but what we don’t see are the meals at home.

  5. sarah says:

    those kids look well-groomed and happy

  6. Asli says:

    I really don’t think these kids are crazy, wild and goofed up on suger 24/7. Every pic we see of them they are well-behaved, walk together (kids goofed up on suger do NOT stay put), look clean and healthy. Seriously. I don’t believe this story one bit especially not the gun and knife-part.

  7. margaret says:

    This mag is a rag so I would take anything they say with a healthy dose of skepticism. Funny how she (supposedly) allows the kids to eat all that junk — she barely seems to eat much of anything herself.

  8. lisa says:

    Brad is southern. Got his first gun like many when he was 6 or 7. But the story says Angie lets them play with guns. Like they have only one parent. I doubt Brad or Angie are letting their small children play with real weapons. Yes the boys have been seen with toy guns. Purchased from stores. And everyone ragging on them must know that little boys play with toy guns and such. Do they have a loud home. YES both have said as much. but when we see these kids out and about they are all well behaved. And if you know anything about children that is not the case if they were brats and out of control at home.

    I think the tabloids write these stories about their children because GOD forbid Brad and Angie could be good parents raising healthy happy children. That would be just too much. Especially for the people still pissed they are still together after all these years. Can’t have these two have a good life together. It just reminds me of the people that post they want the kids to grow up an write a tell all to say how unhappy they were as children. That they had terrible parents. They never entertain the fact that maybe the opposite will be the case.

    I wish the rags would leave the kids alone. Sad that they are so desperate the need to paint these children and only these children as out of control. Well they look very happy and well adjusted. and that is because they have parents that are parents.

    • Wendi says:

      She gets the blame because Jolie is the one who does films where she’s constantly got a gun in her hand. And she was also the one who took Maddox to some shooting place (paint ball or similar) while they were in the UK. She’s the one who spoke about playing with knives in bed. I remember reading somewhere that she had said that she bought Maddox a knife for one of his birthdays. She’s obviously got a bit of a thing about weapons.

      And as usual, the men get a free pass.

      • The Original Mia says:

        Could have sworn Brad was also present when they went to do paint ball.

      • lisa says:

        Actually when they went paint balling Brad was with them.

      • Wendi says:

        Did you both somehow manage to miss the last sentence in my comment?

      • Runs with Scissors says:

        “Did you both somehow manage to miss the last sentence in my comment? ”

        Oh, you mean the sentence that was supposed to make you sound fair and balanced? Yeah, must’ve missed it.

      • Eve says:

        @ Wendi:

        I don’t think anyone missed the last sentence in your comment. I believe they (lisa and The Original Mia) were responding to this part of it:

        And she was also the one who took Maddox to some shooting place (paint ball or similar) while they were in the UK.

        You nowhere mentioned Brad Pitt was also there, or that both parents took Maddox/the kids to the paintball place, or anything like that. So there was no need to become defensive and snark about their reading skills. They (lisa and The Original Mia) certainly weren’t being snarky towards you.

        I’m not going to discuss if you meant or not to be fair and balanced. It’s just that that last sentence had no place there since you hadn’t mentioned Pitt at all (or any other adult male) in your comment. That sentence is irrelevant in the context of your comment, that’s all.

      • Wendi says:

        The comment was meant as a whole. Apparently that might be too much for some to assimulate.

        If you bothered to think about it at all, you’d get what I meant. However, since you and a couple of the others didn’t seem to have grasped it, let me spell it out for you…

        Pitt cheats on his wife and then leaves her for his mistress. Who gets hated on? Why…. The women of course! Regardless of whose side you’re on, Pitt got off scot free.

        Pitt’s kids eat junk food and enjoy violent games? Who gets blamed? Why, the mother of course. Even though there are two parents. Pitt gets a free pass.

        Why the eff does the press always give the men a free pass while the women always seem to be either the “weak ones” or the “evil ones”?

        THAT was my point.

      • Eve says:

        @ Wendi:

        I so should have known better. That enganging with you would be a complete waste of time, because you will die before admitting you’ve made a mistake. But no, I actually thought you would reread both comments (lisa’s first and your reply to her) and actually apologize for being unnecessarily snarky towards both lisa and The Original Mia. Was I sadly mistaken.

        The comment was meant as a whole.

        It might have meant as such, but it didn’t come out the way you intended. That first part is clearly a direct reply to lisa’s first paragraph. If you wanted to suggest all the things you said in your reply to me in that *ONE* last sentence, then you’re expecting people to have more than reading skills, you want them to be able to read your mind.

        Apparently that might be too much for some to assimulate.

        What is hard to assiMIlate is someone trying to suggest others don’t have reading comprehension skills when he/she could easily admit that one sentence was missplaced.

        In order to make that last sentence make sense you would have to, at least, explain that it was directed at lisa’s comments on their relationship (as a whole). In the way it shows up, looks perfectly like you’re addressing lisa’s defense of Jolie buying her kids toy guns (that you agreed with the criticism towards her — made by the press — for buying her kids guns, because she’s the one who’s constantly mentioning guns in her interviews/doing movies that feature a plethora of them).

        If you bothered to think about it at all, you’d get what I meant. However, since you and a couple of the others didn’t seem to have grasped it, let me spell it out for you…

        Unfortunately (for me), I bothered. And I can grasp things meant in comments just fine. What I am not is a mind reader — even worse if such person resides across the Atlantic ocean. AGAIN, you try to be snarky about our reading comprehension sills. I was nothing but respectful in my reply to you and even gave you the benefit of the doubt. I deserved the same courtesy. I’m not surprised at your lack of it though so…carry on with placing your fingers in your ears and singing la la la la.

        But I’ll repeat it anyway, what you fail to see: your comment was about Jolie’s love for guns, you mention nothing else, then you added that last sentence.

        Your comment (first two paragraphs) makes sense in the context of what lisa said (in her first paragraph) but that last sentence makes none. You’re expecting people to guess what you were thinking because that last sentence wasn’t enough — if you meant to criticize men, and the fact they get away free when do wrong things, then you should have elaborated.

        The last paragraphs in your reply to me can’t be found, by any stretch of interpretation, in your reply to lisa.

    • ahoyhoy says:

      Missouri is NOT the South. It is in the Midwest. They may be equally gun-happy regions, but Brad is not ‘Southern’.

      Edit: I LOVE your points, though. ITA.

      • lisa says:

        and I still think of Brad as Southern despite the geographical location. There is a bit of the same mentality.

        Oh and I am southern.

        Brad has been in a few movies that were “violent”. I don’t see Angie as blood thirsty. but note we never got stories of Bruce Willis or Arnold raising violent children. Or Tom or Clint… gosh the list goes on and one..I don’t recall these stories about any other actor who have been shooting people for decades. And Kate B and Milla also do gun holding movies. But why nothing about their children.

        YEAH..the double standard for Ms. Jolie lives on

      • The Original Mia says:

        I’m from Georgia & we don’t consider Missouri part of the South. No matter what the SEC says by having them join our conference.

      • ahoyhoy says:

        Lisa–I jumped on the distinction b/c I’m Midwestern myself–Indiana. We’re a kind of ‘demi-Southern’, and the culture is super-proud of our individual identity. You know….. heartland, blah blah.

        I appreciate that the 6 J-P kids are getting the average, normal toys & foodstuffs that I myself had (in moderation) as a kid. The Brange seem acutely aware that they are raising future PEOPLE, and want them to be the OPPOSITE of that Willow/Jaden Smith spoiled Hollywood kid.

      • Snowflake says:

        Thank you! I am from Missouri and it is NOT the South. We don’t hang the Confederate flag, drink sweet tea, etc, etc.

      • lisa says:


        I am a Southern BLACK women and while I do enjoy a tall glass of sweet tea. I don’t have a damn confederate flag waving from my house.

        My comment about Brad was his value system and the way he was raised reminded me of how I was raised.

        It is 2012 and if that is still the perception of every person in the South our Country and society won’t ever be more than what it is today. Sad that people still have dated stereotypes that that demean a whole region of people.

        Your comment was offensive and very ignorant.

    • Wendi says:

      Eve, see comment #4 by Teri. Forgive me for assuming that others can hold more than one thought at a time, I’ll make sure not to do it again. It’s obviously confusing as well when black/white says gray, I’ll try to stay on my side of the line from hereonin. :eyeroll:

      • Eve says:

        Ohhhh, is that what you’re trying to do? Why didn’t you use the reply button below Teri’s comment then? Or added a “@Teri” in your reply to lisa (since you claim now to have addressed two different people and their comments in your first reply to lisa)? Because lisa’s comment # 8 wasn’t a reply to Teri’s comment # 4. They may be related/have similar thoughts but aren’t a conversation between the two of them. Also, I could be wrong but lisa doesn’t even mention Teri’s name at all in her comment.

        Again, I’m sorry I failed to read your mind and, apparently, also guess who you were replying to. I’m also sorry I feel the need to make sense on an internet board, therefore I can’t quite understand why you seem to think that is unnecessary (making sense, that is). My bad.

        Forgive me for assuming that others can hold more than one thought…

        Most of the posters here can. Ironically, you’re the one who seems to be unable to do so.


      • Wendi says:

        Oh Eve, you’ve reduced yourself to arguing for the sake of arguing. Hardly my fault if you’re not capable of synthesizing comments together. And as I was amplifying Teri’s thought rather than responding to it, why would I @ it to her? I’ll try and keep in mind for the future however, that some people apparently read each comment as if it were a desert island all by it’s lonesome.

      • Eve says:

        Oh Eve, you’ve reduced yourself to arguing for the sake of arguing.

        Seems to me you’re the one doing that.

        Hardly my fault if you’re not capable of synthesizing comments together. And as I was amplifying Teri’s thought rather than responding to it

        Are you trying to convince me, other people here or yourself that this kind of reasoning makes any sense? Amplifying Teri’s comment, really?

        …that some people apparently read each comment as if it were a desert island all by it’s lonesome.

        That last sentence in your first reply to lisa was already a “desert island” in itself as it’s completely disconnected from the rest of your own arguments (that somewhat defend those who criticize Jolie for buying her kids toy guns).

        Finally, since I’m feeling like punching myself in the face for addressing you in any way (something I had been successfully avoiding for a while), I’ll say this:

        You’re progressively making less sense each and every time you respond to me. And I can’t argue with crazy.

        Have a nice day.

    My kid enjoys treats now and then too, who cares. There are worse things in life.

    One kid is bound to “fall out” with family when they grow up and write a “tell all”. I wonder which one…

  11. phlyfiremama says:

    Wow, with all of the Angelina hate from the tabloids I just had this vision of her cackling over a hot cauldron, stirring the boiling sugar water to sweeten the children up for cooking them in her wood fired oven later, after which she will suck the marrow out of their bones in order to keep casting her witch spell over poor helpless defenseless Brad. The Leg will NOT be denied~ ;)

    • FrowninPabloDread says:

      Me too about the hate. I just cannot figure out why people hate her and her leg. The whole family seems very lovely in every tabloid photo. Seriously, will people explain this to me-Why do people have this great hate on for Jolie?
      I have been reading this blog for months trying to figure it out. How can people find this family so offensive, and overreact to every little thing they do? I find them so adorable. I found Brad PItt really boring until he did Fight Club, Mr and Mrs Smith, and the leg.

      • pamela says:

        THey hate Angie because 7 years ago, Brad woke from his stupor, divorced his then wife, hightailed it to Angie and had babies with her. Nevermind that the ex has been with several men during those 7 years, somehowin the grand schemeof things, they don’t matter. To make matters worse, the break-up they prediced and were salivating over still has not happened,and he has now been with Angie longer than he was with his ex. I think that’s it in a nutshell.

  12. Jessica says:

    Insiders stated this?!! Holy f$&@ing sh@t! This is the dumbest story I’ve read in a while and the idea that people are forming any kind of opinions based on it is ridiculous. I enjoy my share of celebrities acting ridiculous, but this story is just lame. Try again.

    • geeeeeeg says:

      I dont like her because shes overrated and she has a history of being a homewrecker…..billy bob was engaged when they met. Shes not ugly and destitude its not like she couldnt have anyone IN THE WORLD. but she just has to have whats not hers.even the kids arent hers! Ok lol that was mean

  13. Marjalane says:

    Nothing wrong with being goofed up on sugar, cookies and Fanta; It’s how I live my life and I turned out great!

    seriously- I hope the kids have a full time dentist on staff, they’re going to need it!

  14. Twez says:

    I want Angie’s sunglasses. My trouble is that I never want to spend more than $10 on sunglasses because I lose them all the time.

  15. Miss Beca says:

    OMG kids with cookies! And toys! And soda! Quick, everyone: hand to forehead! Fainting in 3…2…1…

    While I applaud every parent who takes a firm stance on gum/donuts/toy (or kid sized) guns/bathtime/etc, I’d ask everyone to remember that every family is different. Someone isn’t a bad mom just because they’re different than you.

  16. sup says:

    i just read the ok magazine bs story and you know it’s fake judging by (especially) the last two paragraphs. nuff said!

  17. Moi says:

    So was I growing up and I turned out ok. Wait……. :-)

  18. Leikyn says:

    I really can’t get past the Fanta. I didn’t realize that was sold anymore. God, that stuff was nasty. I’d recommend a nice Grape or Strawberry Nehi if you want to go old school. The super trendy drink Coke products.

  19. Colette says:

    So the insiders can tell notOK about this yet they have had AJ pregnant 18 times in the last 7 years times . Also according to notOK there have been 14 weddings in the last 6 years.BTW I love Fanta they sell it at some smaller stores in Tx Lastly we see these kids less than 1% of their lives. We DK who there friends or how often they see them.Brad has mentioned playing football on the weekends with the kids friends in Parade magazine. Also he mentioned his kids want them to get married because they see their friends’ parents are married.

  20. SolitaryAngel says:

    I very seldom post on an Angelina thread because of the hate that is usually spewed at them, but I had to speak out today….I call shenanigans on this! The children always look clean, happy and healthy. They’re always walking together calmly (or nearly so, lol) with Angelina and/or Brad, and kids on a constant sugar-rush NEVER act like this. Why do these magazines keep drumming up this hateful bullshit? *sigh*

    That said, I adore Miss Z…her outfits are so ladylike–I’ve never known a young girl IRL who could put herself together like The Z. I LOVE those boots in the top pic too!! The girl is beautiful, and has real presence; I am so enjoying watching her grow up. :)

    • ahoyhoy says:

      Totally agree.

      And you are also right about Miss Z. She is so preciously girly, every new sighting gives me a lil’ tear. I could see her going into the fashion industry when she gets older…she seems born to it. Her poise is otherworldly for a 6-year old.

      • lisa says:

        I was on a fan site and saw a picture of Brad holding her. I think he was visiting Angie on set and had Zahara. She was so tiny like a doll. And he had her bottle tucked in his back pocket. Some of you may know the picture I am talking about. She had a rough start. And because of being adopted and taken care of that baby is now that cute child we see.

        the kids seem very happy and very active. Swimming and doing all kinds of things But these stories are out there to paint Brad and Angie as other than what they appear. Good parents that love and take care of their children.

      • Runs with Scissors says:

        lovely comments

  21. original sandy says:

    more fake stories, the kids look happy, healthy, and they have great, caring parents.

  22. Lisa says:

    Well, as long as it isn’t my stomach, I really don’t care.

  23. Maritza says:

    It’s as real as Angelina’s pregnancy.

  24. Ranga says:

    Well they’re their kids, they can feed them what they want.

    I admit those parents who are like ‘no sugar, my golden child eats no lollies or sodas and only organic fresh blah blah’ are really annoying and I have a good chuckle thinking about how mental their kids are going to go when they start going to bday parties and get their hands on sugar.

    I will say I really wish my parents enforced healthy eating habits and excercise when I was growing up as it would have saved me a lot of grief later in life.

  25. PyrLover says:

    Like none of us have had a donut and a coke for breakfast…please. I love 6 year olds walking around my neighborhood with a Starbucks cup in their hand. Which is worse??

  26. JR says:

    The twin are three years old. Isn’t that way past the stage where they put everything in their mouths???

  27. Daphne says:

    Well…to me, Angelina seems like a total control freak. Spoken of course, as someone that has simply watched her behavior for years and has never met or chatted with her. :) So, if she admitted that junkfood is her family’s weakness, it must be so. She seems the type to keep most of the dirt on lockdown, and admit to the stuff that not only doesn’t bother her, but actually makes her proud (it’s just my take). If she said that they eat a lot of junkfood, how can anyone argue that they probably don’t eat a lot of junk food? The parents of these kids are all over the world every single week, and have crazy schedules. It takes discipline to maintain children on a healthy diet, and I doubt they fight them on it when they’re so busy. The gun stuff, however, is frightening and I sincerely hope it ain’t true. Also, I love that poncho top thingy that she’s wearing in these photos. The woman is skin and bones, but that top is flattering and I’d love one for myself!

  28. Double Stuff says:

    I’m wondering if something was to be read inbetween the lines of the “kids smell like Johnny Depp” comment. Like maybe it’s meant that they smell like Johnny because they’ve been around him, which could imply he’s been with Jolie. The rumors of Depp+Jolie keep popping up in odd contexts – how much the kids like him, feeding him PBJ & Oreos. Or, there’s the idea that the kids smell like Johnny because Brad’s been copying Johnny’s look over the last year. And has he been doing this to taunt Jolie, to salute Depp or just to be funny? There’s something bizarre here.

  29. hmm says:

    who cares what they eat, they’re not my kids. and they’re obviously not overweight. they are all skinny healthy looking kids.
