AND BABY MAKES MILLIONS Brangelina and Shiloh Radar gets results! Or so we'd like to think. After repeated inquiries over the past three days about the fate of the millions in People-magazine money Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt promised to donate to childrens' charities last June, the couple made a surprise announcement ... to the Associated Press.

Yesterday afternoon, a spokeswoman for the couple told AP about the hastily formed (and inventively named) Jolie/Pitt Foundation, saying it had pledged $1 million to Global Action for Children and $1 million to Doctors Without Borders. The news more or less resolves any lingering questions about what the pair actually planned to do with their Shiloh windfall, reported to be $4.1 million (though People disputes that figure.)

Back in June, reports said the dough was destined for Unicef, but officials there told Radar they had not received a pledge of any kind. As for the UN High Commission on Refugees, where Jolie is a goodwill ambassador, spokesmen there referred all calls to Jolie's Geneva-based "handler," Shannon Boyd, a UN employee "who looks exclusively after Angelina Jolie," and who never returns our calls.
