Angelina slaps Pitt, sacks nanny

March 18, 2009 18:48 IST

Hollywood's most talked about couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt seems to be going through a rough time as media reports suggest that the actress allegedly slapped Pitt after catching him on the bed rubbing the back of their female employee.

Pitt is said to have been comforting the nanny after she was taken ill. However the sight was enough to throw Jolie into a jealous rage and she allegedly slapped her partner across the face and immediately fired the nanny, the Daily Mail said quoting the Star magazine.

'She got right in Brad's face, screaming at the top of her lungs, and told the nanny to get out of her house and never come back. The argument woke up the sleeping twins, who began to cry,' a source was quoted as saying.

'As Brad tried to console both the twins and the nanny, Angie just snapped -- and slapped! -- hitting him right across the face,' the source added.

The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button star was reportedly left 'stunned' by the act and stormed out of the couple's home. He later went for a four hour motorbike ride to calm down.

It's alleged the argument took place days after they appeared together at the Academy Awards. However, the pair's representative has so far not responded to the reports.
