Brangelina Cause Near-Riot on Rickshaw Ride

10/9/2006 9:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Apparently unable to afford more sophisticated vehicular transportation, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie took a spin in a rickshaw in downtown Pune, India yesterday – and almost caused a riot in the process.
Brangelina: Click to watch
The couple decided to take 5-year-old son Maddox out for a little ride into town, except that, this being India, a massive throng of fans, photographers, cameramen, and reporters surrounded their little rickshaw every time they stopped, and a security detail in the rickshaw behind had to jump out just to keep the hordes at bay.

It all got a bit too much for the Jolie-Pitts, as they had to cut their ride short after 20 minutes. No word on their destination, but the couple is in town to shoot scenes for "A Mighty Heart," which Pitt is producing and Jolie is starring in.


Anna Nicole Residency-Buying Charges as Son is Mourned


Native Bahamians are up in arms about the speed with which Anna Nicole Smith obtained residency in the island – and they're accusing her of paying off the immigration minister with a $10,000 check to fast-track her application.

The Bahaman Free National Movement is claiming, as MSNBC reports, that Smith was given her residency in three weeks, which is much shorter than usual, though Shane Gibson, the immigration minister, says that it actually took three months. Gibson doesn't deny that, whatever the actual duration, "this one was done very quickly," and he says that there was once a "Czech financier" in 1995 who had his application approved in just over two months.

Meanwhile, amidst all the sordidness, Anna Nicole's late son Daniel Smith, whose body is still in the Bahamas, was remembered at a ceremony on Saturday at the First Baptist Church in his hometown of Mexia, Tex., where Daniel's father, Billy Smith, still lives. Relatives, who had not seen the boy in years, recalled their interactions with Daniel, especially his love for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

"Departed" Arrives As Scorsese's Biggest Opening Ever


The cop drama "The Departed," starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, and Jack Nicholson, took the box office crown this weekend with just over $27 million, making it director Martin Scorsese's biggest opening by far. "Cape Fear," the 1991 film starring Robert De Niro, scored $10 million in its debut.

Jessica Simpson and Dane Cook didn't fare so well with "Employee of the Month," which came in third with an $11.8 million debut, while the latest "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" installment shocked audiences into shelling out $19.1 million in its opening frame.


Party Favors: Wynn Tears $140 Million Picasso, Rapper Jadakiss Arrested on Gun Charge


Hotel king Steve Wynn may have put his elbow through an incredibly expensive Picasso that he had sold to a billionaire fund manager. According to Page Six sources, the casino mogul was hosting a cocktail party at the Wynn Las Vegas when he accidentally put a tear in a Picasso painting "from the Blue period," worth almost $140 million. "I'm glad that was me," Wynn supposedly told his guests, including Barbara Walters and Nora Ephron ... Rapper Jadakiss, whose real name is Jason Phillips, was arrested Saturday at a traffic stop in New York on suspicion of a weapons possession. In 2004, the rapper, who has performed with Mariah Carey and Jennifer Lopez among others, was arrested on weapons possession charges in North Carolina, on which he reached a plea agreement.

gojo:....II don't like these two! I don't like the way they handle thier personal buisness in the public eye! I don't like the way they don't give a sh-t about anyone but thiemselves..the only reason they are acting like humanitarians, IMO, is to try and make themselves look better than they are...Brad goes almost directly from Jens bed to Vagalina Holies bed...you can sugar coat it all you want , but IMO, he was a cheating husband, and Vagalina doesn't care about women unless shes sleeping with them, she has no respect for the sanctity of marriage, even if its her own..she has always been a freak, and just because shes with Brad doesn't change a thing in my book..I have never been a fan of hers, and never will be...

They're damned if they do, damned if they don't. If they don't have their kids along, they're neglectful parents. If they do bring their keds along, they're dragging their kids through a media circus. Plenty of working parents leave their kids to sitters, nannies, extended family. The fact that these two don't leave their kids home alone with nannies whenever they leave town, just goes to show how devoted they are as parents. And that photographer got what he deserved!!!!

You're forgetting a point, number 14, and mind you, I could care less about the "morals" of these two, but Shiloh was professed to be an eight month baby by Ms. Jolie herself. Who cares. She's a slut. He's a wimp. Who cares. Just get them out of my face.

ERRR, eight months means she was concieved in September, amonth after the divorce. Get over it! Don't look. You guys have been posting the same lies for a year now, You must be taking lessons from that slutty Jennifer loser. (she was with Vince at the time) Now piss off and go go on a JA thread and call her a slut. She's played out, and B &A are more popular than ever!!!
Angelina's been a humanitarian for YEARS, Brad met with Bono and Sting with Jennifer before they were even married, he was socially aware, she wanted nothing to do with it. Theve've grown up, appearently you haven't .

WOW ! A lot of peple really dislike Brad and Angelina. I mean , I use to think Angelina was dark and negative at one time. I even harbored resentment towards her when she started seeing Brad while married to Jen. But that marriage was not a happy one. Brad and Jens needs in life were very different. However........

Angelina has changed. SHe took all that negative energy and put it into something positive.She is a good mother, and you can't be selfish to be a good mother. I don't think the giving and loving she shows towards children's charities is forsed or contrived .I believe it comes from the heart. People do change and I think she is one of those people. I for one , am cutting her a little slack. So far she has proved me wrong on what my opinion was of her at 1st. Maybe we will all be eating crow when these two are still together in 15 years. Right now they are giving back to society and I don't think it's for their own benefit. I think they enjoy it.

Photographers should respect actors' privacy, particularly when they have their children with them. People see the movies that they are in to see their acting ability. The money that they are paid for their acting does not give the world the right to intrude on their privacy with their families. Imagine the fear a five year old would have to be hunted down by photographers. It is wrong, just plain wrong. Let the children have some fun time with their parents outside of their homes! Let them live and grow up.

gojo: This is a celebrity blog, if you don't like what I have to say, go over to JJ, where they worship AJ and BP..and sing your praises...I think they are both the scrapings from the bottom of the barrel, and anyone who thinks they are role models, should seek therapy immediately! So you can put your opinions where the sun never shines for all I care...

Picasso was indeed over rated, so no big loss their.

Poor Maddox looks like he's not enjoying the buzz. No wonder Brad'd body guard gets mad at these idiots. These photog are out of control. There really should be more laws about stocking people, even celebrities. It's stocking plain and simple.

Anna will get her come up'ins just wait and see.

Poor Maddox looked lost and scared. Its sweet that his dad asked “Are you all right buddy?” Also, his parents use their body to protect him from paparazzi. I feel sorry for Maddox thinking he would have his parents to himself but the ride ended in 15mins. O well his should be use to that. Maybe one day we will stop buying into the Jolie-Pitt family where about. Then their children can have a life without the paparazzi.
How much are the pics or videos of the Jolie-Pitt worth? Think paparazzi would go to Pakistan if they filmed A Might Heart there by the way the book is an eye opener.
