He didn’t even get Sunday?!
Brad Pitt got to briefly hang out with his six children before Father’s Day after Angelina Jolie approved the visit, E! News reports. According to the outlet, the Oscar-winning actress, 42, let their kids — Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11, and 8-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox — celebrate with their dad on Saturday, June 17.
The former power couple’s young brood allegedly spent time with Brad, 53, at his LA home for several hours on Saturday before they jetted off to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, where Angelina adopted Zahara more than 10 years ago.
As previously reported last September, Angelina filed for divorce after an alleged incident involving their son Maddox on a private plane. The FBI launched an investigation into child abuse allegations against Brad, but ultimately cleared him of any wrongdoing.
In December, the Mr. & Mrs. Smith costars reached a temporary custody agreement. The kids remain in Angelina’s custody, while Brad has “therapeutic visitation.” In GQ Style’s Summer 2017 cover story, Brad opened up about his split and how his family is “ripped apart” because of it.
“I was really on my back and chained to a system when Child Services was called,” the Fight Club hunk told the magazine. “And you know, after that, we’ve been able to work together to sort this out. We’re both doing our best. I heard one lawyer say, ‘No one wins in court — it’s just a matter of who gets hurt worse.’ And it seems to be true, you spend a year just focused on building a case to prove your point and why you’re right and why they’re wrong, and it’s just an investment in vitriolic hatred.”
He added, “Fortunately my partner in this agrees. It’s just very, very jarring for the kids, to suddenly have their family ripped apart. If anyone can make sense of it, we have to with great care and delicacy, building everything around that… Our focus is that everyone come out stronger and better people — there is no other outcome.”
