Maddox's Army-Style B-day Bash

Maddox's Army-Style B-day Bash

Life & Style Weekly has the exclusive pictures from Brad Pitt‘s birthday surprise for son Maddox.

It all started out on Friday when Angelina Jolie brought Maddox with her to work at LA Studios. This was a distraction so that Brad Pitt could ready the house for Mad‘s 6th birthday bash. Here’s what the L&S insiders had to say:

On the parents doing the party planning: “Brad and Angelina were heavily involved in the preparations. They mapped out and set up everything themselves.”

On Braddox’s relationship: “Brad and Maddox have a unique father-son bond. Brad came into Maddox’s life at precisely the right time. He needed a strong male influence as a role model. And after all those years of wanting a child, Brad was bouncing off the walls with excitement.”

On the fun waterslide: “It was huge! Brad made sure the plastic was good and wet before anyone went down. He even inflated some rafts.”

On Brad readying the troops for Capture the Flag: “Brad really got into it,” says the insider. “He was decked out in military fatigues and a helmet. Even Angie and Zahara painted their faces!”

On the gifts Brad and Angie bought Maddox (dirt bike, a leather jacket and a helmet): “Mad wants to be a biker, just like his dad. He’s always going into Brad’s closet and strutting around in Brad’s hats!”

Check out more pictures inside of Maddox‘s bday bash…

    gleefully waiting for the pictures to pop up of papa pitt in chicago today. what will they say then? lmao

  • oli

    Brad and Angelina are done. He went to chicago and let know splash the time the plane will arrive so they could get the pics.

    Angelina was on set since early morning until 6pm. The kids went to the set around 12pm. Brad was never there, he stayed in the hotel until 6:30pm before angelina arrived at the hotel, and left to the airport.

    They are playing “pretending” just like he did with Aniston. Brad is hella good at this game.

    ********************************************************************

    Brad loves playing with the press.

  • Besane

    LMAO, Just can’t understand the poor HATERS, torturing themselves now over 2 long years, hoping for Jolie-Pitt breakup, only to be DEFEATED over, and over and over again. I suspect haters are masochists :) They love it! LOL! Don’t worry, you have YEARS to come torturing yourselves–enjoy you DAILY FAILURE :)

  • OHH! PLEASE

    So lets see if i got this, brad pitt is not allowed to leave angelina’s side or this will be definative conclusive evidence of a split?, even if he has to work, he shall not leave her side, get a grip and call me when he spends 6 months away from her, like he did with she-who-shall-not-be-named.

    Angelina Jolie spent her first day of filming “Wanted” yesterday afternoon in Chi-Town’s Chinatown.

    Jolie arrived to the set early in the morning and stayed till mid-afternoon filming a driving scene in a black Audi SUV.

    Jolie retreated to her trailers midday for lunch where her children were waiting to see their mom. No word on where Brad Pitt was at this time.

    Jolie returned back to her downtown hotel mid-afternoon, but not before saying goodbye to the crew. BTW: The crew loves Angie! They all insist she couldn’t be nicer. Jolie’s stunt-double continued to film the car scenes till early evening.

    Around 7 p.m., a driver pulled one of Brangelina’s SUVs, with a bodyguard in shotgun, into the hotel’s private garage where security escorted Pitt into the vehicle and drove straight to a private jet at Midway airport.

    The Boots Girls did not see Pitt walk onto the jet, but sources told us Pitt left town for the evening.

    His destination is unknown for now.

    Jolie is scheduled to continue filming all day today

    I could care less fro Brad. I’m happy that the crew loves angie :)

  • Angie fan

    Not impressed

    Shiloh is in more of the pics but life and style as usual chose to leave them out. Angelina did not go after brad you only have to look at the timeline and the pics and the interviews from around that time. As a fan i know that mr and mrs smith wrapped months before pitt and maniston announced their split in jan 05 then in march they had to do reshoots and that is when i believe thay saw each other again and by that time pitt was already seperated. If jolie was the reason the marriage ended and why aniston filed for divorce then why was she so shocked to see him with her in the kenya pics if angie was the reason why it ended. Aniston said herself in the VF interview that she flat out denies that she was left for another woman and that what really hurt her was that pitt had moved on with someone else so quickly and all that goes to show is that pitt was unhappy in his marriage that he can move on so quick.

  • WTF?

    What is this? We already discussed this topic ad nauseaum we’ve all seen the pics now Life & Style gets a thread? The fans did very well on the past thread describing who was who. We don’t need any insider or any source to say anything because they are made up anyway. All those quotes are just common sense. Of course Brad & Maddox bond. Any idiot can see that. Brad’s been in Maddox’s life since Mad was 3 years old. Of course the parents “got into it”. What else would they do?

  • ? lol

    I could care less fro Brad. I’m happy that the crew loves angie

    oh no, angie is going to leave Brad for the crew?

    Well if he had to work, he should have stayed back in L.A and later join the family in Chicago. If he went with them and left the next day, means he really CARES about the press. He went to chicago becuase he wanted his pic taken so everyone could say SEE! THEY ARE TOGETHER.

    Brad plans his business meetings. If he’s back in L.A today why he went all the way to chicago? Finish business first and then go to chicago, or maybe they really got into a fight.

    Of course he cares about the press lol always has. This was planned. The whole purpose of going to chicago was to get pics, that’s why when he left last night he sneak out, so no one would notice.

  • Zenith

    Can somebody post the quote from Angie regarding their (Brad and Angie) leap of FAITH?

  • Peaches

    AJ pictures on set look great. Love the jacket and I actullay like the pants. She looks really happy, good for her as far to many people in this world especially on this board seem to be happy. They seem like a fun family who really enjoy each others company. I wish Brad and Angie well.

  • Bea

    I dont understand it.
    They dont like paps but they invite tre press to Maddox birthday???????

  • sara

    I do think Brad’s bit at fault if people are having doubts about his actions because of the way he handled the last year of his relationship with Aniston. He did pander to the media as though things were alright in his marriage and that last trip and sudden announcement of split was tricky. It’s just you never know with him. I can see why some people would compare him showing up for a day in Chicago to the way he showed up in London and left so quickly (yes, I know he had to be there for O12 promotion but it was weird the way he left on his own instead of with Aniston).

  • sam p
  • Princesse

    Why is Maddox on the cover of that rag? Resorting to putting children who are not celebrities on the cover instead of a choice of thousands of adult celebs? Not cute even if it is Maddox. The days are numbered on that rag anyway. This time next year that magazine will be out of business. Children should be on the cover of Child, Parenting or Baby magazine.

    Can’t wait for Brad to start hitting the festival circuit. I know three people going to the Toronto Film Festival. That’s bigger than the Oscars and maybe even Cannes. Excitement all around, Venice, Deauville, New York…..It’s gonna be chaos. I wonder if Cliniqua is going? The lady who runs the Brangelinafans blog is going again this year. She seems to have an in with the Toronto Festival. There will be a big charity bash again this year. Everyone will be there. This is the calm before the storm. Fun, fun, fun. I’ll never forget the images from last years Toronto Festival with Brad walking the red carpet. Unreal!

    He’s trying to control the tabbies before he starts doing press for Jese James. He wants this movie to be his oscar ticket BAD, but the tabloids are running his plan.

    Sucks that they found out he left, now he will have to get back tomorrow and I’m sure will get pics of him at the airport. Zen master is back to work.

    Splash has a new video of Brad leaving Chicago last night.

    ***********
    so, he only stayed in chicago for the paparazzi`pics?

    **********************
    Or he stayed to help his family get settled before flying out to finish some business. Contrary to what you think, the man has a business to run, he’s allowed to leave for that you know?

    Silly Goose.

    I really wish some people will verify things before going with it. I see no link to the splash video showing BP leaving chicago. Just because someone says there’s a video on splash that not mean there really is a video on splash.

    why do you care? for not liking brad you seem to know everything about him. Stalker?

    Damn what kind of men do you fanistons have for fathers and/or husbands. His first job is to make sure his family is settled and safe than everything else comes second.

    I think I’m getting a clearer view of why you fanistions hate so much and I’m really starting to feel sorry for you.

    They did NOT invite the press you idiot. Life & Style bought paparazzi pictures and then made it their cover story to act like they were there. Complete with quotes from phantom sources and iniders. This blog had pictures way before Life & Style even knew about this pics. If they wanted real insiders they would have asked the regulars on JJ.

  • tabitha

    How reliable is that blog that claims they know what the Jolie Pitts were up to yesterday. I have never heard of them before. Their so called facts may be wrong.

    If Brad did have to leave , I think it says a lot that Brad came to help his family( Angelina included) get settled in before taking care of business. Family comes first with the Jolie-Pitts as it should.

    I am 200% convinced that some of these people are insane. 7 pages into this blog and there are more hater post than anything else but they are not interesting and they wish they would just go away, yeah right. Every morning it is the same thing lies and people trying to manipulate and start trouble, then by the afternoon it all tapers off in time for the dinner loonies to arrive. Then it tapers off again until the 2:00 am loonies arrive. Like I said 200% convinced that the haters are insane.

  • KON

    Brad plays with the press and he cares about his image and his movies. Why do you think he spends so much money in a publicist, an agent, a lawyer and a manager? He’s not dumb.

    He alredy played a lot of his fans when he divorced Aniston, he’s doing the same now.

    Brad marriage was over in 2004 (for him at least) but he waited and waited because he was worried about Troy.

  • right…

    Photo ops! Call the razzies! Gotta make em all think we ain’t just doing it for the kids. They would be more successful apart.
    Ang needs to just gain weight and be insane again. Brad needs some dating downtime. Seriously, has the man EVER been alone. SOOO NEEDY.

    Two questions, why is Pax still in Pampers?
    Why don’t they let the kids have friends outside of staffers kids?
    I count 3 kids there.

    And don’t rag on me, I didn’t rag on you.

  • A THOUGHT

    WHY ARE PEOPLE ALWAYS WAITING FOR THESE, TWO TO BREAK-UP,MY GOSH GET OVER IT. HE LOVES ANGIE. HE’S NOT GOING TO LEAVE HER AND KIDS.GET OVER IT,HE’S NOT GOING BACK TO EX,WHAT FOR ,TO SIT, SMOKE,SHEW FLIES,AND SIT WITH EX ALL SHE CAN DO IS TALK ABOUT HERSELF, EX MIGHT OF HAD HIM WHEN HE WAS YOUNG,BUT WHO WILL SHE HAVE WHEN SHE’S OLD,MAYBE ANOTHER DOG,OR ANOTHER ONE NIGHTER,MAYBE PAUL THEY DESERVE EACH OTHER,SHE A COLD PERSON.TIME WILL TELL.HUH?

    What you don’t get is that most people are actually not haters and are fairly neutral or don’t care about these two. They find this cult-like following disturbing and amusing at the same time though.
