THE BODY­GUARD TELLS ALL

In Touch (USA) - - Coverstory -

As the cus­tody bat­tle be­tween An­gelina and Brad gets even nas­tier, new de­tails about their re­la­tion­ship are emerg­ing. Mark Billing­ham, a dec­o­rated for­mer Bri­tish Army sol­dier who served as the for­mer cou­ple’s head of se­cu­rity for 18 months nearly a decade ago, re­veals in an Oct. 16 in­ter­view with Bri­tain’s The Sun that he was prac­ti­cally a fa­ther to their kids, im­ply­ing both An­gelina and Brad weren’t as hands-on as they claim to be. “They trusted me with the kids. We got very close; I was liv­ing with them all the time. I could take the kids any­where I wanted to on my own.” Mark was shocked when he learned of their split, fur­ther ev­i­dence that things weren’t as bad as An­gelina has made them out to be. He also makes no men­tion of Brad be­ing a drunk or abu­sive. But Mark does ques­tion Brad’s — and An­gelina’s — ev­ery­day skills. “What sur­prised me was their low level of com­mon sense,” he shares, ex­plain­ing they’d ask him things 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.”
