Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt beef up security after Shiloh was targeted by kidnappers

Brad Pitt and Angelina JolieAngelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have beefed up security at their home after daughter Shiloh was targeted by kidnappers, it was claimed today.

According to a US report, a chilling note was left at the door of one of the superstar couple's houses. It included a photo of the 20-month-old tot - alongside the warning: "We got this close already."

An insider said: "They're freaked out.

"Shiloh has someone protecting her 24-7, and Brad and Angie are trying to avoid taking her out of the house."

The insider added: "Someone got to their doorstep and left a threat against Shiloh.

"The person included a photo of her, and a note that read, 'We got this close already.'"

The note was left in early January, a US celebrity magazine claimed. The insider was unable to reveal which house belonging to Pitt, 44, and Jolie, 32, was targeted, because of security reasons.

Shiloh - the couple's only biological child - has not been photographed in public since January 4, according to Life & Style magazine.

Last November, two shots were reportedly fired outside their Los Feliz, California home. The insider added: "Brad and Angie will do whatever it takes to protect the children.

"There have been frequent threats against their kids, but this time someone just got too close.

"They are by far the most security-conscious celebrities in the world."

The couple already has impressive security at their California home. It includes a $240,000 USD state-of-the art control room manned by at least four staff. Motion tracking cameras with ultra-sensitive detectors alert security to any possible intruders. Observers say their security bill for 2008 could top $5 million USD.

As well as Shiloh, they have three other children, Maddox, six, Pax, four, and Zahara, three.

A Mighty Heart actress Jolie is rumoured to be several months' pregnant with twins.

On February 2, at the Santa Barbara Film Festival, she said: "I like being a mum.

"That's my big passion."

A spokeswoman for the couple did not return calls today.
