FORGET ME NOT Jolie and friends While the Brangelina caravan moves on to India (leaving manhandled stalkerazzos in its wake) all is not well in Namibia, where a recent visit to the Mondesa Resettlement Community by a British TV crew proved revealing. Back in June, to commemorate baby Shiloh's entrance into the world, the Jolie-Pitts pledged $315,000 to a local pre-school and the maternity wards at the Swakopmund and Walvis Bay hospitals.

While a $15,000 cash pledge was reportedly given to the Democratic Resettlement Community pre-school before the duo retreated to Malibu, when the UK morning gabfest GMTV arrived in September to film a short spot on the couple's Namibian love-fest, they found administrators who felt the couple had failed to make good on their promised largesse.

A source connected with the shoot confirmed that the Headmistress of the DRC school was visibly upset off-camera, and claimed her students had been abandoned by the high-profile humanitarians. "Either they have a really shoddy accountant, or they are promising things in the moment that they have no intention of delivering. The children at this school have been left waiting for money that has never arrived," says the source.
