Thief targets Brad and Angelina's iPad


A man has been arrested for trying to steal Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's iPad.

The incident occurred earlier this week when the A-list couple's eldest son, Maddox (11), went paintballing at the Hollywood Sports Paintball Park in Bellflower, California, accompanied by a bodyguard.

While a camouflage-clad Maddox ? whose siblings are twins  Vivienne and Knox (4), Shiloh (7), Zahara (8) and Pax (9) ? was racing around the park, a thief tried to make off with the family's shared gadget containing all their personal information.

An unidentified man in black gloves was caught red-handed in the Mr & Mrs Smith stars' SUV, trying to steal the iPad which was labelled “family”. Local authorities arrested him at the scene, the MailOnline reports.

Brad (49) and Angelina (38) have rarely had any breaches of their security in the past. In May, police arrived at the couple's French Chateau Miraval estate to find two men dressed as the Hollywood duo trying to break into the grounds. The incident later turned out to be part of a television prank.

The couple, who are expected to wed this year, are said to be happier than ever and sources claim Angelina's recent mastectomy ? which she had after discovering she carried a mutated BRCA1 gene, making it likely she would get breast cancer ? has brought them closer together.

An insider said, "They've overcome some enormous hurdles like Angie's recent life-saving double mastectomy but it's given them a new appreciation for their amazing family life."
