An inside source told that Jolie doesn’t like to meet Pitt at his house because it brings up too many memories of their time together. To avoid facing her ghosts, the actress arranged a drop-off location a few blocks from the home for exchanging the kids.
“Angelina struggles with going to her old home so she and Brad have set up a secret rendezvous location a few blocks from Brad’s home where Angelina can drop off and pick up the kids during Brad’s visitations,” the insider shared.
Jolie’s unwillingness to enter the house is understandable. She and Pitt raised six children in the home and everything in it reminds her of something in the past. We can only hope that she eventually gets over her trepidations and is able to step foot in the house once again. As a side note, it is interesting to hear that Jolie and Brad Pitt are meeting face-to-face on a regular basis. This marks a significant shift in the tone of their split, which was marked by a nasty custody battle in the early months.
“Their secret meet up spot is by a pet store, a short drive from Brad’s home, where Angelina used to live with all of the kids when they were still a family,” the insider stated. “The location is also a short drive, only a mile or two, from Angelina’s new home with the kids, in Los Feliz, so the rendezvous spot is both convenient and necessary.”
As we reported earlier Angelina recently took the kids to Disneyland to celebrate the birthday of twins Vivienne and Knox. The Maleficent star was spotted with all six kids and everyone seemed to have a great time at the park. The outing, of course, was a rare public appearance for the family, who have been keeping to themselves over the past few months.
A few lucky fans caught a glimpse of Jolie and the kids, who enjoyed several different rides on the VIP tour. This includes some time on the Silly Symphony Swings and a ride on the Mad Tea Party. Although Jolie is still working out the details of the divorce, she looked happier than she’s been in a long time.
“Day made we just saw Angelina Jolie on the Teacups ride and she waved hello,” one fan wrote on social media.
Jolie and Pitt share six children together — Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne and Knox. They were also spotted at Disneyland back in May in celebration of Shiloh’s birthday. Brad Pitt was not invited to the festivities and it’s unclear if he got any alone time with the twins on their birthday.
