Brad Pitt looked a little downcast as he made his way to work earlier this week. Amid reports that his oldest children want to spend the holidays with their mother, Angelina Jolie, Pitt was spotted heading to meetings in Beverly Hills.
The actor donned a dark jacket, grey pants, a newsboy cap and sunglasses for the outing, which happened a day after he celebrated his 55th birthday.
Pitt carried a bottle of juice as he walked to a meeting in the morning and appeared calm, despite the rumors of a feud with his children.

According to Radar Online, Pitt’s three oldest children have spent the majority of the past two years with their mother. With Pitt no longer a part of their lives, Maddox, Pax and Zahara have reportedly sided with Jolie in the divorce and want nothing to do with him.
“[They] never want to see Dad, and that hurts him. They’re on Angie’s side — and always have been,” a source claims.
Pitt and Jolie’s custody war ended a few weeks ago after a judge reportedly granted Pitt joint custody of their six children. The oldest kids, however, have allegedly opted not to spend time with their father.
In fact, the source says that Pitt hopes that they will eventually come around and visit him on their own.
Despite all the rumors, Pitt enjoyed his 55th birthday with most of his children. The only exception was Maddox, who apparently decided to skip out on the event.
The children reportedly enjoyed an entire day with the Once Upon A Time In Hollywood star, and spent the night at Pitt’s house that evening.

Although Pitt would like to smooth things over with Maddox, sources claim he was thrilled to spend the night with the rest of his kids.
Amid the reports of a fractured relationship, Pitt’s son, Pax, shared a heartfelt tribute to his father on social media to commemorate his birthday. Pax posted a picture of Brad Pitt as a young boy, and added some kind words to go along with it.
“Happy Birthday to this stud,” Pax wrote. “Love you so much! Can’t wait to see you later.”
