A TV crew has been fired after allegedly trespassing at Brad Pitt's home in the Hollywood Hills, according to reports. It's claimed the camera operator and a producer for E! entertainment news unchained a gate at the back of the property last Thursday, before entering and filming the house, but ran off after being challenged by workmen. A statement from the US TV channel confirmed the pair has been "terminated", adding: "E! Networks did not instruct or authorize anyone working on its program to improperly intrude onto private property, and the individuals involved have been terminated. "Neither Brad nor his partner Angelina Jolie were at home at the time. This is not the first security scare the couple have suffered in recent months. Last month it was revealed a man tried to get a job guarding Brad and Angelina by impersonating a federal agent. In June, police arrested a photographer on suspicion of trespassing while trying to take a picture of their five-year-old adopted son Maddox outside his school in Malibu. Brad and Angelina, 31, have two adopted children - Maddox and 18-month-old Zahara - and one biological daughter, four-month-old Shiloh Nouvel.
