Starstruck parents ruin school for Brangelina



Tbdbrangelinamaddox092707 When you’re Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, paparazzi pandemonium is the norm, but it’s apparently causing some problems at son Maddox’s school.

The New York Observer says Dan Cooke, the director of the Lycée Français de New York on the Upper East Side, sent a letter to gawking parents admonishing them for ogling Brangelina when they pick up and drop off their 5-year-old.

“Regretfully, I have seen some parents taking pictures, asking for autographs, talking to the media and even shouting at Ms. Jolie and Mr. Pitt for recognition,” the letter read. “Therefore, in the best interests of the school and safety of your child(ren) I must ask for everyone to please respect the family’s privacy and discontinue these practices.”

All the media attention has ruined little Maddie, too. The source says he started crying when teachers gave an assignment to bring in a picture of themselves. That’s the price of fame, kid.
