Jolie's secret Pitt tip
13:30 27 April 2005
Angelina Jolie has been accused of tipping-off photographers about her romantic holiday with Brad Pitt.
The Oscar-winning beauty - who has always denied claims she had an affair with the Hollywood heartthrob while he was still married to Jennifer Aniston - allegedly made a deal with a photo agency to ensure a percentage of the profits made from the shots would go to charity.
The revealing pictures showed Brad playing 'dad' to Angelina's young son Maddox.
Sources claim Angelina was keen to show the world she and Brad are a couple now his divorce from Jennifer is in the process of being finalised.
One told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "When you're Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and you're tired of hiding, this is a great way to do it. This is a way to break the news softly."
Pictures of Brad and Angelina playing happy families with three-year-old Maddox were released earlier this week - sparking yet more speculation they are enjoying a secret romance.
Brad, who has made no secret of his desire to start a family, was photographed helping Maddox build sandcastles on an African holiday.
A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "They went to extreme lengths not to be spotted, hiring private jets, private villas and security."
