Brad Pitt will be celebrating the holiday season with three of his kids according to a source’s version to US Weekly. Their egos, according to the source “have once again derailed” and they will be together for the Christmas.
Brad Pitt is all set to celebrate the upcoming holidays with three of his and estranged wife Angelina Jolie’s children. A source revealed to US Weekly that the 57-year-old Hollywood actor will be seeing his 14-year-old daughter, Shiloh, and 11-year-old twins, Knox and Vivienne, on Christmas Day. The insider added, “They can spend the night with him on Christmas Eve.”
The source explained that the former couples’ “egos have once again derailed” and they decided to spend time together in this festive season. “Brad and Angelina are equally responsible for the never-ending drama,” the insider added. “Sadly, their children are collateral damage.”
The back story
The Fight Club actor and the Maleficent actress have been into the legal battle since September 2017. Angelina Jolie had filed for divorce back then and they have been legally single since April 2019. However, they still are on a custody battle for their children. Two of them share six children. “Relations between Brad and Angelina remain extremely tense,” the source told. “She (Jolie) has wanted to do humanitarian work beyond the United States but needs permission from Brad to take the kids out of the county,” the source disclosed.
The ex-couple were asked to appear before a judge last month to discuss the custody of their kids ahead of the season. In October, according to claims by sources, Brad Pitt hoped to get increased custodial time with the children including “the overnight portion of Christmas Eve”. A source was quoted by US Magazine, “Brad wants 50/50 joint physical and legal custody of the kids. Angelina has not agreed to those terms.”
