They are famous and have lots of money, yet it unfortunately brings them more trouble. Angelina Jolie and partner Brad Pitt were shocked by news of a plot to kidnap their newly adopted son Pax Thien, it has been reported.
An exclusive report in this week's Life & Style reported that Jolie's security team learned a "credible" plot was "meticulously planned" by a deadly gang to abduct the 3-year-old Pax Thien as the actress made plans to return to America on March 19th soon after she finished his adoption papers.
"They're highly skilled operatives with little regard for human life," says an insider close to Brangelina's security team. "Information came out that leaders of the gang ordered their L.A. members to devise a plan to kidnap Pax before demanding a ransom of $100 million--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," the source went on saying. Meanwhile, Brad has reportedly installed a $500,000 security system in the home he and Jolie bought in New Orleans, which is just a block away from a police precinct.
