“He knows this flies in the face of everything he’s tried to teach them, but they’re responding to it,” says an insider. “Even the tough ones, Maddox and Pax, want to spend more time at daddy Brad’s place.”

The source revealed that Pitt is giving his kids whatever they want, and that means a lot of stuff. The Fight Club star gave his kids new iPhones, infrared goggles, games, and an arcade. Plus, he has already built them a skate park and is currently building a rock and rope climbing gym and water park for next summer.
The insider added that Jolie doesn’t have anything like that at her house.
Radar Online recently reported that the custody settlement between Pitt and Jolie recently stalled, and they asked for an extension from June 2019 to December 2019. They have not yet put anything in writing, and Pitt is doing all he can to sway his kids’ loyalty.
The source said that Pitt’s ultimate goal is for the kids to have fun when they are at his house, but the gifts could also encourage them to want to live with him.
Jolie and Pitt have been fighting over the custody of their six children – Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox, and Vivienne – since they split in September 2016. Multiple reports have claimed that Jolie wants full custody of the kids, while Pitt wants joint custody.

According to People Magazine, Jolie and Pitt have reached a temporary custody agreement while they continue to try and work out a permanent deal. The former couple put the temporary arrangement in place to keep things moving in the right direction.
Pitt and Jolie agreed to the temporary arrangement weeks ago, and the judge signed off on it. They based the agreement on recommendations of the child custody evaluator, and it will eliminate the need for a trial.
The details of the agreement between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie remain confidential to protect the best interests of the children.
