Angelina Jolie Remains A Brave Mom, Keeping Kids Safe Amidst London Riots

By  | 

Angelina Jolie is in London right now and amidst all the rioting, it’s also worth noting that she’s not alone. The mother is currently living in a rented apartment with Maddox, 10, Pax, 7, Zahara, 6, Shiloh, 5, and 2-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox while partner Brad Pitt is shooting World War Z in Falmouth, Cornwall about five hours away.

Us Weekly reports:

Indeed, a member of Jolie’s security team tells Us the shocking civil unrest in the city unnerved the actress. “This morning, she was really scared and worried about the safety of the kids,” the staffer tells Us. …Pitt, meanwhile, checks in from his movie set on the coast. Adds a second insider: “Brad is … worried. He’s pretty safe because he’s in Falmouth, but knowing Angie and the kids are in London is what’s making him worried. He has been calling the house regularly, to make sure they are OK and calm.”

Being abroad during times of “civil unrest” is nerve wracking enough, but to experience it while also being responsible for the safety and well-being of six children is an entirely different fear. Given the circumstances, it’s also important to note that Angelina is a woman caring for her young family alone in a foreign country, leaving her vulnerable to an entirely different host of risks than if she were a father. Granted, she has bodyguards and probably a staff of nannies to assist her, but concern for her children — particularly in the absence of a partner for support — must be high.
