Jolie and Pitt Clash with Ex-Bodyguard over Memoir Plans

Apr 27, 2009 | 9:38am EDT

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's lawyer has dubbed the couple's former bodyguard a "pathological liar" amid reports that he is planning to write a tell-all autobiography.

Former British soldier Mickey Brett has protected a host of A-list stars including Tom CruiseNicole Kidman and Sylvester Stallone, and worked for Jolie and Pitt for a number of years.

According to the New York Daily News, Brett is planning to reveal all about his encounters with the stars in a new memoir.

The news has incensed the superstar couple, whose representative Marty Singer claims Brett lied about his past as a Special Forces commando and hid a string of criminal convictions from his employers.

In a conversation with the newspaper, Singer noted Brett was questioned in a 1993 murder investigation and was arrested for assaulting a restaurant owner in Namibia in 2006, while Jolie was in the country to give birth to baby Shiloh.

He also claims Brett signed a confidentiality agreement, promising not to disclose details about his time in Jolie and Pitt's employment.

In response, Brett's lawyer says, "Our client disputes what has apparently been said by Mr. Singer, but is not in a position to comment further at this stage."

However, Robin McGibbon, an author who has worked with Brett, insists there are no book plans in the pipeline: "Mickey was definitely going to consider a book or TV deal if the offer was good enough. (But at this point) there's not going to be a book."
