Why Angelina and Brad are hiding the Twins


Nearly everywhere Angie and Brad have gone, their four oldest children — Maddox, Pax and the boys’ sisters, Zahara, 4, and Shiloh, 2 — have been seen with them. Noticeably absent, however, have been the couple’s two youngest kids, twins Vivienne and Knox, who’ll turn 1 on July 12. In fact, the twins have been spotted in public only once since January: when they were rushed through an airport near Tokyo while being closely guarded by their parents. Since then, they’ve remained in hiding — leading to speculation that something could be wrong.

Now Life & Style has learned that Brad and Angelina have been seriously concerned about the twins’ health. The babies are suffering from serious digestive problems, says an insider close to the family. “They’re both hypersensitive,” the insider tells Life & Style. “Knox has trouble holding down his food. He spits up nearly every meal.” Vivienne, meanwhile, has food and environmental allergies, explains the insider: “Right now, she’s on a lactose and gluten-free diet, and she’s still underweight.”

Angelina, 34, and Brad, 45, have been so worried, they’ve had the twins undergo genetic testing and have been adamant about keeping them behind closed doors. In truth, the real reason Brad and Angelina have been reluctant to take the twins out has to do with their own fears, says the insider. “Because of their delicate state, Knox and Vivienne need to be kept away from anything they could possibly be allergic to,” the insider explains. “That’s a lot easier to do when they’re home and in a controlled environment.”

Brad & Jen’s Tearful Reunion?


As Brad Pitt copes with tension at home, he has been getting support from an unlikely ally — his ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston. Friends say that in recent weeks, Brad and Jen, 40, have been talking frequently on the phone and texting each other, their conversations becoming longer and more personal as he confides in her about his current situation. In fact, In Touch can exclusively reveal that on April 23, after Brad visited Angelina, 33, on the NYC set of Salt, he drove across town to where Jen’s film The Baster was in production — and the pair quietly met face-to-face. “He pulled up in his black SUV,” reveals a mutual friend of the former couple, although Jen’s rep denies the story. “He arrived on the opposite end of the set from where Jen’s trailer was, and Jen snuck into his car. They drove around New York City together, talking,” according to a friend of the former couple. “Brad confessed his feelings to Jen,” the friend says. “He told her that he is trying to make his relationship with Angelina work, but it is failing.” After about an hour, Brad dropped Jen off at The Greenwich Hotel and drove away. The meeting had been something they’d been organizing for weeks. “They had to plan it meticulously so no one would find out,” the friend says. After so much time has gone by, Brad and Jen seem to have grown to value their friendship more. And he’s proving it by wearing a necklace she gave him for his 45th birthday on December 18. “It’s an antique pendant,” a confidante shares, adding that she left it for him at the offices of his production company, Plan B. “She found it, and knew Brad would love it.”
