Thus far, it looks gloomy for Brad Pitt and his estranged wife, Angelina Jolie. Pitt feels like Jolie is doing everything in her power to keep him away from his children.
A judge recently agreed with that assessment and barked at Jolie for keeping the clan away for making things difficult for their father.
The pair is set to go back to court this month, and Pitt is already dreading the outcome.
A source close to the famous actor and filmmaker shared his state of mind by saying: “Brad continues to be disappointed and disapproving of Angelina’s actions with their children during their custody war. Brad feels like Angie manipulates the kids, trots them out in public to make it look like she is an amazing mother in an attempt to win the divorce war in the court of public opinion, which is upsetting to Brad. While Brad continues to nurture his relationship with the kids privately, behind closed doors, he is bothered every time Angelina puts the kids on display in public, something Brad is working hard to avoid while the divorce war rages on. He thinks the kids’ privacy is most important during this time and it makes him sad that Angelina does not protect the children the same way.”
Pitt assumed that he would be apart from his children — Maddox, 17, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12 and twins Vivienne and Knox, 10 — for the holiday season.
Pitt also believed that he would be alone for his birthday next month. As it turns out, Jolie’s good angel has taken over and plans a beautiful surprise for the father of her children.
A source told Hollywood Life: “Angelina wants to surprise the kids and have their father over for Thanksgiving dinner. Angelina knows the kids would love Brad to be there for the special day. She would love to recreate that bonding time for her kids.”
The family friend went on to reveal to the publication: “She’s been thinking about him and is beginning to feel horrible and regretful over how messy their divorce has become. Angie’s been in a forgiving mood lately, especially with the holidays coming up. She hopes the invite can help shift the energy of their relationship amidst the divorce and begin to bring everything to a peaceful place as soon as possible.”
Do you think for the sake of his children, the father of six should accept the Thanksgiving invitation?
