Brad Pitt Angelina Just Put Our Kids in Danger
9/20/2016 3:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
We're told Pitt is "furious" at Angelina for allegedly spinning stories that he poses a risk to their kids because of anger issues fueled by weed and alcohol. Pitt says there's now a bounty on the heads of the entire family, because they've now become a prime target for the gaggle of paparazzi.
We're told the way Brad put it is this ... "She's just unleashed hell."
The perimeter of their Hollywood Hills home is now blanketed by photogs, and the LAPD is now patrolling at regular intervals.
We're told Brad had conversations with Angelina over the last few days and pleaded for her to handle the divorce "like adults." He wanted to low-key it for the benefit of the kids. Instead, he says, she went scorched earth by asking for sole physical custody and suggesting he's a risky dad.
Brad, we're told, is angry at Angelina and fearful for their kids.

Truth is, many autograph seekers make cash off selling celebrity John Hancocks -- which Chris says he doesn't mind -- but he hit his breaking point when one accused him of being selfish.

9/20/2016 1:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The sources did not address the weed and alcohol issues.

Derrick Rose Rape Accuser Must Reveal Identity ... Judge Rules
9/20/2016 2:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The woman suing Derrick Rose for allegedly gang raping her with his friends may no longer use a pseudonym and MUST reveal her identity when the case moves forward ... a judge has ruled.
The woman filed her lawsuit under the name "Jane Doe" in an effort to stay anonymous and protect her privacy.
Typically, the law allows someone who claims to be the victim of a sex crime to file a lawsuit under a pseudonym to protect their privacy rights.
But Rose filed court documents saying Doe has abused the privilege by going on a "nationwide pretrial media blitz" over the past week ... which included phone interviews and a news conference.
Now, it seems the judge agrees ... with U.S. District Judge Michael W. Fitzgerald ruling that she must disclose her real name when the case goes to trial.
