Brad Pitt’s Christmas re-union with kids was short-lived. Angelina Jolie, now 41, had filed for divorce with Brad Pitt on the grounds of irreconcilable differences. Though the divorce was filed only recently, several reports hint at the duo having split two years back. The night of Academy Awards 2014, the couple had a heated argument, eventually leading to rift between the couple. Angelina Jolie ended the relationship with a divorce in September last year. Following the divorce, Brad Pitt could only visit the kids for just a few hours.
‘The worst holiday season of my life’
Brad Pitt has apparently told his friends – “This has been the worst holiday season of my life”. He seems to be going through post-Christmas blues. Divorce with Angelina Jolie has started to take toll on him. “Brad is like a broken man. He feels betrayed by a woman whom he says he still loves. He misses her despite everything that has happened between them. He was blindsided by their divorce – he still believes Angelina made an impulsive decision and can’t figure out how to reverse it and save face” said a source to Daily Mail. “Brad’s anguish is palpable right now. He desperately misses having his kids with him at Christmas and New Year. These supervised visits are sheer hell on him. He’s broken down in tears so many times – he’s not ashamed to cry anymore“, the source added.
Brad Pitt was allowed to see kids for four hours only
Brad Pitt was told that he will be able to visit the kids during Christmas but that he can only see them for four hours. Post the divorce, Brad Pitt has been ordered to undergo anger management counselling and submit to random drug tests prior to every visit. It looks like the actor had to put on a brave face and hide the trauma of being separated from the kids and meet them with a smiling face. Angelina Jolie had dismissed Brad Pitt’s plea to extend his visit during Christmas. According to reports, Angelina is pushing for sole custody of their kids even though Brad Pitt wants joint physical custody.
Pitt is uncomfortable with supervised interaction with children and is visibly upset about Angelina Jolie’s demand for sole custody of their kids. It has been a traumatic experience for the kids – Maddox (15), Pax (13), Zahara (11), Shiloh (10) and 8-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox. We just hope everything goes fine for Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, and the kids.
