Pierce Brosnan's wife has ordered the JAMES BOND star to "sort out" his children after his son was arrested of suspicion of theft.

The Irish actor's spouse Keely Shaye Smith, 39, is concerned the recent behaviour of Brosnan's older children - from his first marriage - will affect their two sons, DYLAN THOMAS, 7, and three-year-old PARIS BECKETT, and she's reportedly begging him to steer his kids away from trouble.

According to Britain's DAILY MAIL newspaper, Shaye Smith told Brosnan, "Sort your older children out - now. I don't want my kids affected by their bad behaviour."

Brosnan's son CHRISTOPHER was detained by police this week (begs12JUL04) after allegedly stealing mobile phones at a London nightclub.

But Shaye Smith has reportedly banned Brosnan from flying to the capital to help his 32-year-old son.

A source says, "Keely feels Pierce does his kids no good when he picks up the pieces and heads for London each time they find themselves in trouble.

"She's insisting that he shows them 'tough love', letting them know in no uncertain terms that their behaviour is not going to be tolerated any more."
