Angelina Jolie Grants Brad Pitt 4-Hour Kids Visit On Christmas Day
Actor Brad Pitt gets four hours of Christmas visit to kids as he and ex-wife Angelina Jolie battle over their children's legal custody.
According to Daily Star Sunday, an unnamed source close to the former couple revealed that the 41-year-old actress granted 52-year-old Pitt four hours to visit their children on Christmas Day.
"She [Angelina Jolie] doesn't have the heart to refuse to let him see the children over the holidays and they would probably never forgive her if she did," the source told Daily Star Sunday.
The four hours Christmastime handed to the "Fight Club" actor might seem like a pity party but it is better off compared to last month's Thanksgiving when he wasn't able to spend a single time at all with the kids. The source said the actor "was really choked" about it.
"But Brad [Pitt] is going to have to use every ounce of his acting skill when he arrives with their presents and put on a brave face to mask the torment he's going through over spending so little time with them," said the source.
The Hollywood A-listers have called it quits when Jolie filed for divorce September 19 on the grounds of "irreconcilable differences." This was a day after an incident on a private jet where Pitt allegedly struck their son Maddox. The FBI cleared the actor from the child abuse allegations and closed the case.
The high-profile exes have since been battling over the custody of their six children - Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10 and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8.
According to Inquisitr, there were already speculations that the once seemingly perfect couple were already living separately even before September. Pitt was said to be involved with "Allied co-star Marion Cotillard who denied the reports. The couple was also rumored to disagree on Jolie's shift of interests which involved living in London and entering the British politics.
"He bit his tongue and suffered through all of that in the hope Angelina would allow him more time with their kids," said the source
