Brad Pitt has custody of the kids this week, there’s ‘a lot of laughter’ around his house

Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio back in their car on the set of 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood'

Here are some more photos of Brad Pitt filming Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Brad and Leo DiCaprio have been filming exteriors for the Quentin Tarantino film all week, and these pics are from last night’s filming. Brad’s character – the stunt man – is doing the driving while Leo’s character rides shotgun. QT loves to do lengthy dialogue scenes in cars, so I’m assuming that something important is happening in this scene. Is it just me or is something subtly different with Brad’s face? I can’t tell if it’s the combination of a tan plus that ridiculous haircut and highlights, or if he’s been tweaked. Hm…

Meanwhile, in case you were wondering how the Father of the Year is handling his work-life balance, Entertainment Tonight had a convenient update. I’m absolutely shocked that People Magazine hasn’t had an hourly update on this too:

Brad Pitt is balancing work with fatherhood. The 54-year-old actor was snapped on the Los Angeles set of his new film with Leonardo DiCaprio, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, on Monday, rocking a denim-on-denim outfit. A source tells ET that Pitt has been busy filming the highly anticipated Quentin Tarantino crime drama set in 1969, but also spending time with his kids.

According to the source, Pitt’s kids with estranged wife Angelina Jolie have been spending time with the actor at his Los Feliz, California, home, and that there’s “a lot of laughter and skating” around the house. In keeping with the new custody agreement, Pitt has been with the children since July 21 and will have them through July 29, before he is responsible for getting the kids back to London to be with Jolie. Pitt must arrange for visits with doctors and a therapist during his time with the kids, while Jolie is only allowed to call the kids once per day at a time agreed in advance by both parents.

[From ET]

I would think that if the kids were on set with him this week, the paparazzi would have managed to get photos of them (considering they’re shooting on Hollywood Blvd). So my guess is that he hasn’t brought the kids to the set. They’re probably at his home (or Angelina’s home) with a nanny. And perhaps that’s why he hasn’t been providing hourly updates on his dad skills?

    “Balancing work with fatherhood”—puh-leez.
    People is nauseating.

    • WingKingdom says:

      Right? I’ve been balancing work with motherhood for fifteen years. Do I get a medal?

      • Go Figure! says:

        No and we mothers never even get one raise in pay and mothers do it all. Surprised People Magazine isn’t all over this either. Just wait. An in depth interview is on the way.

      • VirgiliaCoriolanus says:

        I view these stories in the same light as I did with the “Angelina and the kids are hanging out on the set of Maleficent”……..”Angelina and the kids go see Wicked”…..

        All this and similar stories point out to me is that PEOPLE, ET, etc along with every other outlet that covers celebrity gossip, got a copy of the unsealed Order that gave the custody schedule for summer/early August and are filling in the blanks.

      • Still-Sarah says:

        @ WingedKingdom : so true. It was popular in the ‘80’s to refer to a stay at home mother as a “full time mom”. It made me so angry to hear that because a woman doesn’t become a part time mom just because she works outside the home. No one ever called a work outside the home dad a part-time dad. I am in my fifties and so glad to see more dads in full time caregiver roles and taking parental leave. ANYONEwho doesn’t that kind of hard work should get a medal! Here is yours – the newly proclaimed Chipmunk of Distinction 🐿 🙂 wear it with pride, Mom.

      • Alex says:

        Except with the wicked story, it was clear that they got that from stalking people on Twitter who posted about it. I think we can all tell the difference between an obvious leak and people mag stalking people on Twitter to get info for a fluff piece so they can use Angelina’s name to get clicks. Just like it was obvious the kids on the Mal set was the first leak in a long time from team Angelina (about the kids specifically ) in order to debunk the story about the kids not being allowed to travel with her, so no not the same thing. While Pitt has been oh so obviously leaking like a sieve to all tabloids weekly sometimes hourly for months now, that’s how we got the initial stories about London in the first place from page 6 back in May. As well as his publicist Matthew Hiltzik denying lame weekly stories to gossip cop (while multitasking & making those poor people in NOLA sign NDA’s for that MIR mess ofcourse)

        Also the order was sealed, a new S&O was filed last Friday (it seems like a response to the leak and pertains to all future filings of proceedings) and has all the other filings in the case listed- 06/ 06/2018 Order after hearing (This is a sealed document) And again Angelina said the order was sealed in her statement , you know the one where she called Pitt a “selfish deplorable person”.

        Also to all those on here claiming Pitt is so private, private people don’t leak court documents that contain private info containing their kids doctors names, schedules and living arrangemanets or give tabloids weekly updates on their kids & his relationship with them , while bashing their mother in order to look good. He’d keep his head down, and do the hard work and his children will see that and respond to that.

      • Hmm says:

        Exactly and he was the one crying to tabloids about not being with kids. If he is such an alister he should be able to take this importan week off. How are the kids going to be comfortable with him when he ain’t even spending the days with them? But she’s alienating them

      • Pam_L says:

        How do you guys know with such absolute certainty that Brad Pitt leaked the details rather than someone in the Courts System on a payroll doing it? I’m seriously just asking. I like both Angie and Brad, but it always takes two.

  2. Gaby says:

    Are *ALL* of the kids with him? Like, all six of them? My guess is no, because the article is very careful to not mention any names or numbers.

    Father of the Year, right…

    I don’t wanna be bitchy, and I really hope, for the sake of the kids, that they can mend their relationship. But I take all of these articles with a grain of salt. Why does every visit he has need to be documentend in the press as PR? It’s transparent, thrirsty and manipulative.

    • KB says:

      The court order required the five youngest to be with him in Los Angeles from July 21-29, so Maddox may not be but the other 5 must be.

      • ariana says:

        In California a child can choose which parent they want to live with. That means if Pax, and soon, Zahara, decide they do not want to spend 50% of the time with their father, they do not have to. They would probably be encouraged to see their father and try to have some kind of relationship with him. The Judge ultimately makes the decision, but at 14 years old California listens to the child. If I were Brad Pitt, I’d get my behind home and try and bond with the children who are visiting for the week.

        On his death bed, does Brad Pitt think he’s going to be thinking about the Tarentino movie or the children he ignored becaused he wanted to be thought of as “young” and “hot”. I have a news flash for Pitt, those days are long gone.

  3. Maya says:

    If, and this is a big if, he managed to get rid of his addiction and stopped attacking Angelina, then good for him.

    However, I don’t think he has changed at all and is still using the media to criticise Angelina.

    Media still doesn’t point out the fact that he cannot be alone with his children, they need to speak to a therapist before and after each session and that Brad’s sisters and their children are there with them.

    18 months later and he still isn’t allowed to be alone with them. Red alert and I hope the children are taken care of by other responsible adults while Angelina is not there to protect them.

    • hogtowngooner says:

      Brad doesn’t have any sisters. He has one brother. Did you mean him and his wife? I think they still live in the midwest near their parents. Is it part of the court order that they have to travel to LA to be present for his visits? That seems strange.

      Edit: he has one sister, Julie, per Wikipedia. My bad!

      • Amy Tennant says:

        I could have sworn Brad had a sister (Julie?), and that she had an adoption blog. She was pretty close to Angie and the kids, as I understood, and that’s what inspired her to adopt.
        Now I have to go back and google.
        Edited: yes, the blog is EthiopianJournies. She adopted two sons from Ethiopia and has done some charity work in the country since then. I think she had a bond with Angie. It must have been hard for her when they split.

      • hogtowngooner says:

        Yeah, he does. I had only ever heard of the brother.

      • Carmen says:

        He has one brother whose name I forget and one sister named Julie Pitt Neal. His brother has two children. Julie Neal has five, including two adopted Ethiopian boys.

    • Go Figure! says:

      @ Maya: I’m thinking he once mentioned he couldn’t handle all the kids together at one time. Is this the reason for the visit from his folk? To help him handle the children? He isn’t doing this “privacy visit” to protect his children. As soon as he’s allowed free access with no doctors, etc. around to monitor, the visits, he will parade those children all over town for photo ops. And no, IMO, he’s not done throwing dirt at Angie.

      • norah says:

        why cant he handle all 6 kids at the time? angelina has done it before esp since they have nannies so why cant he? esp if he has his family people around to supervise the kids. he wanted to prove his father cred so he sd be doing a lot more

      • Felicia says:

        When he made that comment, the kids were much younger. Unless they’ve been brought up as undiscplined savages, it’s not likely they need the same amount of supervision to keep them out of trouble or injuring themselves these days.

    • VirgiliaCoriolanus says:

      Given that the judge that both Brad and Angelina hired said there was no reason he should still only have visitation, what makes you think his behavior hasn’t changed?

      He did voluntary pee tests for at least a few months after the CPS investigation ended. In the past 2 years, besides going to industry events here and there to promote films….he’s been to like 3 concerts (one of which was a memorial for Chris Cornell, who he was friends with), and one concert he was working (the Frank Ocean concert), and one album release/finished party (Frank Ocean again). Otherwise, he’s been pap’d on sets, going to therapy, or going to his art studio.

      There’s really nothing that the PUBLIC i.e. us, knows that contradicts his public sobriety or image that he’s trying to do better (unless you believe tabloids). I’m sure Angelina knows more.

      • Hmm says:

        Virgilia, since you’re a super fan answer why he’s had to have supervised visits for almost 2 years? Answer why after leaking the misleading documents his fans are claiming he wants privacy. He and his new Publicst aka cleaner Michael hitzik have been giving people and et daily updates until now.

      • Fa says:


        Did she (this Virgil) even know what kind of publicist his new friend is? Because he represents every low level celebrity that need new clean image. He mostly leak news about his clients to tabloids and he plays dirty.

      • VirgiliaCoriolanus says:

        If you READ the Order you will see that the reason the language was directed at Angelina was because he DIDN’T need to have supervised visits but AGREED to them, as directed by the therapists.

        And be careful about flinging around accusations of PR manipulation, particularly when Angelina’s lawyer is infamous for leaking to TMZ.

    • Pam_L says:

      Maya, the kids are probably with Brad’s parents while he’s on set. They are both retired and would have the time for it, not to mention that they haven’t had any time with the kids since the separation and were probably desperate for a visit with their grandchildren.

      To all, Doug Pitt is Brad’s brother.

    • KB says:

      Are you intentionally misleading people or confused? They are seeing therapists like always, but he is alone with them this week. As in, there is no therapist present during his time with them, he isn’t being monitored. There are nannies, I’m sure, but it’s not court ordered.

      • Alex says:

        That’s not true KB, the order says either Darren or Michael O shall be present this week. In the emails between the lawyers from 2016 those were the same names put forward by the lawyers to be present when Pitt saw the kids. So while this week the therapists aren’t on site like his previous visits in London, but the order still states either of those two men have to be present. So Pitt still can’t be alone with his kids essentially. @Virgilia I suggest you actually read the order because now you’re just making stuff, that never happened. Just as Pitts lawyer is as famous for leaking misleading stuff like he did for Charlie Sheen in his custody battle with Denise Richards.

  4. tracking says:

    Sounds like it’s going well. I’m glad for the kids, also glad he’s protecting their privacy. Hope this is their new normal when together.

    • Maya says:

      Snort as if he is doing this to protect the children’s privacy.

      He is probably doing this because he knows the children won’t act lovey dovey towards him in public and the public will have evidence that the children won’t vote for him as the best dad ever….

      • tracking says:

        My guess is that he’s both embarrassed about his actions hurting his children and is concerned about their well-being and privately rebuilding their relationship. No way to know for sure, of course, unless the kids decide to tell us someday. I do hope it’s going well, best for the kids to have two loving parents in their lives.

      • babypeanut says:

        Maya we have no idea how the younger children are with him, none. Would you really prefer the children never have a mended relationship with their father?

      • Maya says:

        Of course I want the children to have a good relationship with their father.

        I just don’t think he has really changed and putting them first. His behaviour after the incident on the plane just showed his little he really cared about his children. His image is what seems important to him.

        If the oldest children aren’t comfortable then you can bet that the youngest will be uncomfortable around him as well. Younger siblings always take clues from older siblings.

      • babypeanut says:

        Speaking of my own extended family, younger children do not necessarily follow their older siblings’ example. I think Maddox and Pax are sensitive enough to not try to influence their younger siblings, and to actually encourage them to feel comfortable with their father. Hopefully they all will in time.

      • norah says:

        there must be a reason why he still isnt allowed to be with all the kids even more than 2 years after they split?

      • VirgiliaCoriolanus says:

        If you read the Order, you would know that that is the judge’s reasoning for the “expedited” custody schedule. I think they are due back to see the judge for a revision of custody on August 11th? 12? somewhere there….but the whole point of the Order was that there was no reason that Brad only had visitation for a few hours a week (I can’t remember the exact schedule, but I believe it was 4 hours like 3x a week?) after 2 years.

        Personally, and I thought this from the beginning, I thought Angelina tried to rely on the therapists from the very beginning, even when she felt it wasn’t working, while Brad wanted to move things along (half selfishly, half because he wanted to find someone who would work). for example, in like November 2016 there were emails where Brad wanted to change therapists, while Angelina wanted to stay with the ones they had–even though she had concerns because the kids were not opening up to the therapists and they were not opening up to her at all. I think Angelina wanted to rely on “the system” more.

        But I thought from the very beginning that it was a mistake to follow the recommendations that Brad only have therapeutic visits with the kids. Not that it wasn’t needed, but I thought he should have equal time where it was “just” visitation. Because I know that if I was a kid, and I only spoke to one parent in therapy for months on end, it would not foster any healing or going back to a good relationship. Especially as a teenager.

        And as time went on….that is what the kids became used to, imo. Basically seeing Brad here and there. Especially if Angelina had to go out of the country, which she frequently did. Same with Brad.

        It’s on both of them though–both should have pushed/found some other type of therapy or come up with some other solution.

    • hogtowngooner says:

      Yep you never see them with him. I suspect that was a point of contention between him and Angelina during their relationship.

      • Hmm says:

        Accept we saw them with him for years especially when he had a movie to promote. It wasn’t until he was captured drunk on his way to Dubai with Maddox sitting next to him that Angelina stopped allowing him to travel with her kids.

      • KB says:

        Wait, what? What is the Dubai thing? He was photographed or there’s video of him drunk with Maddox? Do you have a link? I’ve never seen that. I googled it and all I could find was a photo of him at a duty free shop with Maddox, but there was no mention of him being drunk and he looked fine.

      • Alex says:

        I’ll answer KB, I think it was 2014? Allegedly Pitt and Maddox were flying back from Australia and they hitched a ride on a private plane via Dubai or something? Alledgely during this trip Pitt got very drunk and was being messy & acting a fool, we know this because someone on the plane was tweeting about it, this person found the whole thing very hilarious. The tweets of course then later disappeared, but fans took screenshots before they were deleted, so I’ve seen the tweet.

        That was also the last time we saw any pictures of Pitt travelling ALONE with any or the kids, yes he continued to travel with them but I mean just him and the kids, at least that we saw pics of. And we got lots of pictures of the Jolie Pitts travelling through airports during that time and the next 2 years before the split. Again I use the word alledgely, you won’t find it any tabloid, or gossip site as it was never reported just something witnessed by some on Twitter , but it’s something many of us Angelina fans saw and have discussed. Many didn’t pay much attention at the time though it was noted, but well after the September 2016 Plane incident this alleged incident came back into play. It’s Twitter, it was a random person so who knows? But well it felt legit enough at the time and in light of certain info since then I can believe it, but then again I want to believe it. So hey you asked I answered, whether you believe it or not is another matter.

    • Nancy says:

      I’m with you @babypeanut, children, not just theirs, should have the company of both parents. You can’t have too much love. He looks healthy and hopefully his time with his kids is quality time. Supporters of one parent or the other sometimes make their truth a reality when it’s simply conjecture.

      • Hmm says:

        KB and Alex there were actually photos of him passed out drunk on the flight. It wasn’t a private plane but it might’ve been first class – not sure. Looking now I can’t find the photo. Oh how odd. Hmmm

  5. Lucy2 says:

    I do hope he is healthy and the children are able to rebuild the relationship with him, but giving these tidbits to People all the time to make himself look good is not helping.

    Did he get his eyes done or something? Does look a little different.

    • Still-Sarah says:

      @ WingedKingdom : so true. It was popular in the ‘80’s to refer to a stay at home mother as a “full time mom”.

      A little?! I almost didn’t recognize him in that photograph. He doesn’t even look like himself any more.

  6. Wow says:

    It’s not ‘denim on denim’. It’s a Canadian tuxedo.


    • whatWHAT? says:

      ha, the bf and I were talking about this the other day. he’s from upstate NY, and up there they call it a Canadian Tuxedo, but in other parts of the US it’s called a “Texas Tuxedo” or (here in NJ) a “Guido Tuxedo”.

  7. Tanesha86 says:

    He’s so full of crap 🙄

  8. B flat says:

    It would be weird to have the kids on-set, they’re on home turf. I would think it would be very boring for them at this point.

    • babypeanut says:

      And when did having your children on set mean you’re a superior parent? I agree it’s best with breast feeding children, but kids these ages want to hang with their friends.

      • Booie says:

        Except he’s been claiming she hasn’t let him spend time with the kids in 2 years and when he finally has them he’s working after he had said he was sick of putting work before the kids. So yeah I’m sure they’d rather hang out with friends but the entire purpose of his gradually increased visits and therapists evaluating is to reestablish the bond between them. How are they bonding if he’s been on set (and probably long hours no less) during the time specified he would get his children?

      • babypeanut says:

        Both of these parents work. I don’t get your point.

  9. Maggi says:

    Are those Robert Redford’s blues peeping out from behind a Brad Pitt prosthetic mask?

    • tracking says:

      Ha, he looks like he’s recently had a peel to me (smoothness and shine). But otherwise pretty wrinkly, so not sure about anything else. His face has looked different/slightly odd since he had the overhaul before Allied filming.

    • damejudi says:

      Similar thought here; Pitt’s face looks rubbery and mask-y in some of the pix. Is it movie makeup, aging, weird photo angle, cosmetic procedure(s)? Maybe some combination of all of that…

    • Fhmom says:

      He even has Redford’s jowels.

    • Snowflake says:

      He looks like him in these pics

    • JanetDR says:

      It does look masklike! I was thinking fillers or ? One way to look like Redford would be to let himself get a little weatherbeaten. I think that would be better, as he’s losing it for me.

    • elle says:

      He looks like Redford’s stunt double.

  10. JoJo says:

    When I think of teens/tweens I don’t really think of a “LOT of laughter and skating”.He probably has the twins,maybe the girls.Well I’m surprised the source didn’t say that Brad and the kids are having a great time playing games,making s’mores,etc.

    I’m glad he is spending some time with his kids I guess he sees them in the mostly in the evening if he’s filming a movie.

    • Felicia says:

      The court order said that Maddox was old enough to choose. The rest are not. So he definitely has 5 of the kids. We don’t know what Maddix chose to do.

  11. Lady D says:

    He looks like a slightly younger William H. Macy.

    • Myrtle says:

      Yes! I was trying to put my finger on who he resembles here, the hairstyle may have a lot to do with it?

    • Nancy says:

      Kinda, yeah. I think because with age, his face has become sort of “fleshy” for lack of a better word. His eyes look clear though. Yeah @Myrtle, the hair doesn’t become him, guess it’s a 70’s look.

  12. TheHeat says:

    This whole thing is just sad and farcical.
    I really thought that, of any couple in Hollywood, BP & AJ would be the ones to set a standard for co-parenting and keeping things private, if they broke up. I really did…due, in part, to being an old Brangelooney.
    All of these ‘leaks’ and ‘sources’ to People are just plain tacky.

    • norah says:

      by that logic she sd have just ignored the whole issue and stuck with him despite everything so that their problems wd have remained private. there is a reason why the kids still need therapy

      • TheHeat says:

        Oh I agree 100%. I’m referring to how I felt about them PRIOR to the events that actually happened…back when I still had my rose-coloured Brangelina glasses on.
        The glasses are off, now. And BP has exposed himself as a tacky, abusive douchebag.

    • Go Figure! says:

      @TheHeat: I agree. If there was one couple in Hollywierd I was rooting for, it was this couple. They seemed to have it all, including love. But one never does know what goes on behind closed doors. Even after the divorce filing, I still rooted for them to reconcile and be a family. Now I hope Angie never goes back to him. It took him how long to find a therapy he liked? He made all the social trips and promoted films? Never mind Angie was promoting a film extremely close to her heart. I also believe he signed on to do Allied after he knew Angie had this film coming. I do believe there are a lotta things we will never know. . . the abuse and acrimony going on behind their closed doors. Never mind he never denied dating all those others, or his “casual dating” while Angie was/is being a mom. I don’t believe he was spending that much time with his family and I choose to believe (and just my opinion) it’s because he didn’t want to. Also believe he doesn’t want to be seen with his children as of yet because he’s waiting until he’s alone with the children. You know, just the regular nannies, body guards, etc. and he will come off looking like father of the year. I could even forgive him for this. But the way he threw the mother of his children under the bus? There is no way in hell I’d consider going back with him. Co-parent, yes? But anything else? Forget about it. Hoping Angie can move on, find peace in her life, continue to be the best mother she is and can be, and find someone who will truly love her. And he is 54 and, IMO, not as “hot” as he used to be. But what can we expect? Everyone ages, but he’s fighting it tooth and nail.

    • minx says:

      Another old time Brangelooney here. I loved them together, but we didn’t know the whole story.

  13. Sage says:

    He looks like he had some recent work done on his face. He looks different.

  14. Natalia says:

    Agreed. As someone who came of age in the Sixties, Quentin Tarantino is the last person I want to address that era in a movie. 😝

  15. Mattie says:

    How does one of the sexiest man alive begins to morph into David Spade? How doe does that happen???

    • Nancy says:

      Hahaha. I never agreed on People’s Sexiest Man Alive, with the exception of JFK. Jr. In the 70’s, I think, Jim Morrison was on the cover of Rolling Stone….He’s Hot, He’s Sexy, He’s Dead! The 70’s had to be a “trip” to be around in!!

  16. Sofia says:

    Good for him

  17. Penelope says:

    Brad’s looking great and things seem to be going well. Good for him!

    • Hmmm says:

      He looks terrible and things are good for him because 1. He won’t be called out for working instead of spending time with his kids & 2. He won’t be called out for his horrendous behavior when it comes to the make it right foundation.

      He is alienating his own children once again.

      • VirgiliaCoriolanus says:

        You sound ridiculous.

        Is Angelina a bad parent because she’s been working while she has the kids?

      • Booie says:

        Virgilia: no but she’s not the one the kids needed to be told and convinced they are safe with.

        She also took a year off of work to find focus on them after the plane incident. She has spent plenty of time with them and got back to work. The kids are fine with her.

        As for him working when he has them… he’s been complaining she wouldn’t let him spend time with them. He finally gets time and decides he needs to work. So why complain you don’t see them if you are granted an entire week to spend with them all alone, no therapists around, if you are just going to leave them at home on their own while you work?

        See the difference?

      • VirgiliaCoriolanus says:


        She did not take a year off. A year off from acting, yes. But the whole of 2017 she was doing humanitarian work, going on trips, promoting First They Killed My Father throughout the entire year in Cambodia, LA, etc. She also has had multiple producing projects going i.e. The Breadwinner, the One and Only Ivan, etc….. she hasn’t been sitting at home twiddling her thumbs.

        In the past two years, Brad has promoted one film (Allied, which premiered right after the divorce started), filmed Ad Astra last year, and started to film the QT film this summer. He literally JUST started filming and I am wondering how long his part will last. I’ve heard it will be similar to Pulp Fiction, so I am thinking his and Leo’s part won’t be more than 15-20 minutes, maybe 30 min of the 2.5 hour monstrosities QT likes to do. We shall see. And in addition, I’m sure he has producing stuff he does.

        It’s a balance that has to be worked out.

      • Booie says:

        She took the entire second half of 2016 off. The incident was in mid 2016. And then a good chunk of 2017 off before the promo of FTKMF.

      • Sage says:

        Brad also promoted that crap Netflix movie.

      • VirgiliaCoriolanus says:

        Their divorce began mid September 2016. CPS investigation went on until mid to end of October, I believe.

        Virgillia, I know you’re an ex Brangelina loon and now Full time Brad Pitt defender l but you can’t be that blinded by his Botox and new eye lift. Angelina is working on kid friendly movies and has them onset with her most of the time and YOU KNOW THIS because you follow this family very closely. Brad and his new publicist Michael hitzik aka the cleaner have been smearing Angelina and crying about wanting to spend time with his kids yet the week he gets them he’s working on a perverts movie. His oldest daughter is 13 … Tarantino thinks it’s okay for grown men to have sex with girls that age. You and your crew on Just Jared have been crying about alienation knowing full well this man has been an absent parent and he admitted it was because he films his lame ass movies too much. Now he has them and he’s once again abandoning them

        The kids deserve a good relationship with their dad but he has to put in the effort. If he’s so a list why not take a week off to bond with the kids he hasn’t been bonding with for YEARS?

        As you know Angelina took year off to take care of her kids. I’m not falling for your b.s

        Another thing you guys cried that he was so private for ALMOST 2 years and that’s why we didn’t get any pix of him with his kids but it turned out he was under supervised visits that WHOLE ENTIRE TIME.

        spin all you want but some of us just aren’t buying it. When Angelina is wrong I say so. What’s so hard for you Brad Pitt fans to admit he’s been a terrible father, terrible charity runner – people are living in mold infested homes because he chose cheap rotten wood and he has the nerve to make them sign Nda or he won’t fix their homes. They are broke and have no choice but to sign.

  18. Hmmm says:

    LoL @ anyone claiming he respects his kids privacy when he leaked the custody order weeks ago. That leak had info about where Angelina is staying with her kids, where the kids would spend a few hours with him, the names of their doctors. Plus, when he was using his kids for good publicity he had no problem flaunting them around the world but now all of a sudden that he’s accused of abuse he doesnt want to be seen with them because they’ll probably look as miserable as they did on the last day he was paparazzied with them.

    Or perhaps Angie and her team requested that he not use the kids anymore. He hasn’t bonded with these kids for years and he himself said it was because he constantly chose work over them and what does he do the first week he has them to himself? He works. He is deplorable.

    The tabs still aren’t mentioningthe rotten homes in Nola and the fact that he made some of the residence sign Nda’s in order for him to do any work on those homes. He’s sick.

    • KB says:

      You’re still lying about him leaking the court order? So many different outlets have said it was public record. CNN specifically said it was a public record and that’s how they got it. Stop lying about it.

      • Alex says:

        But KB she’s not lying about it, CNN Is the only publication that actually said they got the order from the court which I find curious, maybe they did maybe they didn’t. The others that I saw, just said obtained but not from where or how. Angelina herself said in her statement the order was sealed & said it was leaked by a selfish delporable person or are we ignoring that? and I think she knows the goings on in her case.

        Also like I said above, the court filings are listed and this order is listed as filed under seal, so no she’s not lying. Someone definitely leaked it deliberately, whether that was a (paid) clerk at the court or someone’s lawyers tasked with the filing who deliberately did not redact (as the others were) the order or filed it unsealed? A former president of Family Law of one of the US Bar Associations wrote a little opinion on the leak, and he called it that. He explained the process and what it means to seal proceedings and any repercussions going forward, it gave a little insight into things from a seasoned professional.

      • Henna'd says:

        Alex, multiple outlets were able to obtain it directly from the court, not just CNN. It’s a ruling that was lodged as a public document with the court, due to CA family law requirements. Probably because of public interest considerations.

      • Hmm says:

        LoL at it being a lie. AJ and her lawyer recently filed a stipulation order all about the leaking of private docs. You’re forgetting or hoping we don’t know Brad Pitt’s lawyer was also Charlie sheens lawyer and he leaked a bunch of garbage about his ex wife during that time. It’s what he’s known for.

        I’m sticking by the fact that Brad Pitt leaked that document hoping for exactly what he got. The media and fans like you believing he’s a good daddy but in reality he couldn’t care less about those kids privacy if it helps his image.
        Btw, Angelina and her lawyer have prove to be honest during this entire ordeal while Brad has been scrambling with his little cleaner Mh.

        Wake up !! thank you Alex.

    • Go Figure! says:

      @Hmmm: Hallelujah, thank you Jesus and the congregation says “Amen”. Pretty Boy Pitt is again given a pass both on Make It Right and his children. IMO the “leaked” court order was leaked probably before it was filed, but it still doesn’t make it right. All along PBP cried how he wanted to protect the children’s privacy yet, the first chance he gets, this order is leaked, and only pertinent portions of the order, making him look great. I’ve said it before. It’s not up to
      Angelina to repair the damage he did to his children. That’s on him. Even though his parents, and other siblings are visiting, these are his kids and he’s the one supposedly repairing his relationship with them. Also believe if his parents ever wanted to visit with the grandchildren, no way in hell Angie would or will keep the children from them. Anything to make Angie look bad. We all know Brad did all those things because Angie made him [. . . fill in the blanks]. Otherwise this would never have happened. The best thing he could have done is manned up, owned his mistakes and moved on from their. Instead, he threw everyone else under the bus and he probably only had a 2% (remember Aniston’s remark anyone) chance for the marriage failing. I’m done with him. He has proven to be what he is. A man of little or no substance.

    • Henna'd says:

      Pitt didn’t leak anything. The judge’s component, the order, was definitely a matter of public record as multiple media outlets and not only CNN were able to obtain it from the court with a simple request.

      The documents and evidence submitted by the parties are sealed, but the judgment is an open one. A CA family law expert said, specifically referring to the order being made public, by law some of these rulings have to be filed as a public document with the court. I’m guessing it’s related to public interest stuff.

      If he’d leaked it, he’d be facing consequences by now. Pitt didn’t leak a thing.

      • Fa says:

        The documents said it was sealed after hearing, Angie herself said it was seal. Every documents they filed with the court since their agreement to seal had been sealed and redacted. Why this only documents is not sealed while every custody documents were filed seal?

  19. serena says:

    Thank god, ’cause Angelina was constantly beating them and making the cry.. oh wait.

    Team Kids

  21. norah says:

    i just wish that they wd get divorced once and for all – his behaviour has been appalling.

  22. JA says:

    So a father can’t work and still be a good father?

    I’d love to see if this were reversed and people said St. Angie wasn’t spending enough time with the children because she is working.

    I’ll call it: St. Angie is in London plotting. When she returns she will blow up the custody case again in an attempt to regain control. That’s how people like her work.

    • Noreen says:

      I know I am going to be speaking to a brick wall here but you don’t find it weird that this whole week Brad had been filming day and night (when he hadn’t previously) coincides with the one week he has custody of his kids in the last two years.

    • VirgiliaCoriolanus says:

      There were seven days of hearings with their private judge that led to this Order/new custody plan being issued. Angelina attended one day/the first day, and then was photographed at Heathrow with TWO of the kids (Knox and Shiloh I believe) boarding a plane to London. We never saw the other four leave and go to London. This was at the start of filming for Mal 2. Brad attended all 7 days of the hearing. Most likely (and my personal opinion), Angelina agreed with the reasons for the hearing (which was that custody matters should be farther ahead i.e. Brad should not only have visitation at this stage) and felt comfortable leaving.

      • Zut alors says:

        I thought Heathrow was in London. How was Angelina boarding a plane at Heathrow to go to London? Is there another London out there?

      • Fa says:

        Angie went in London with the kids and Maddox after she assisted the first day of the hearing May 16th, since she has to arrange phone call between her, the kids and the doctors to explain to the kids the summer schedule from London. The phone call take place on or before 31 of May while they were already in London. On the 7 of June when the doctors went to London she has to arrange in person meeting between the kids and doctors and explain “again” the summer schedule to the kids in person by the doctors. All these are on the sealed leak documents.

  23. Jana says:

    He s so my crush

  24. Kathleen says:

    I think he’s had a lower face lift plus filler in his jawline. His mouth looks pulled and wider. My mom had a lower face/neck lift, and her mouth looks the same as Brad’s.

  25. Noor says:

    One of angelina jolie’s fan accounts on twitter posted a photo of her with the kids in London
    Today 🤔

    • KB says:

      Did they say it was taken today? It’d be a violation of the court order, so I doubt she has them.

  26. Mary says:

    Good to see a judge who considers the importance of a father’s role in their kids lives.

  27. Misty says:

    Interesting perspectives. I think Brad and Angelina are both damaged people who have damaged others, it’s too bad the children are caught in any ugliness. I think Brad bears the brunt of that damage when it comes to the kids, but I also think Angelina has contributed.

    It won’t happen but it would be nice if they just let things play out in Court and work on being healthy and having healthy relationships with their children. And if neither of them paraded the kids (Angelina does quite a bit) that would be a bonus.

    • ariana says:

      I disagree Misty, I think Angie is working very hard to make sure her children are not damaged the way she was by her parents. Angie has stated many times she wants her children to have a healthy relationship with their father. It’s their father who is so obsessed with his image that his children are suffering. No child wants to see in print how their father is blaming their Mother for what he, himself did.
      If there was any “alienation”, it was because Pitt tramatized his children and was not allowed by the Court to be around them without supervision. I don’t know what Pitt did, but it had to be bad for the supervision and therapists to still be so involved after almost TWO YEARS.

  28. Jennifer says:

    The kids need a healthy relationship with their father if at all possible so I hope that’s what their situation is. But don’t think the courts won’t allow harmful behavior because it doesn’t fall under physical abuse or neglect and they’d rather risk emotional abuse and substandard care than take away a parent’s rights.

  29. tealily says:

    Yawn. Thanks for the update, Brad.

  31. Katy says:

    He is so cute and handsome.

  32. Lkd says:

    Brad looks GREAT! Leo – not so much, looks older than Brad and rough….

  33. Henna'd says:

    Brad’s always been a bit dodgy (teen gfs and dating only high profile women) but he picks interesting projects. I don’t really care about the personal stuff as I never bought into Brangelina. I hope they resolve it all soon and eventually become amicable coparents for the sake of the kids.

  34. D says:

    Can’t believe he was ever my #1 he’s such a zero now

  35. Sparkly says:

    Wow, he is not looking good. He’s definitely tweaked. I don’t know how he went from super hottie to looking far to much like my evil stepdad for comfort. Wait, maybe I do. Stepdad was an alcoholic and addict too. It does a number on you.

    It’s a shame he’s not taking more time off now that he finally has his kids.Maybe it’s better for everyone if they ease in. I hope he’s truly sober and dedicated to repairing their relationship.

    I think the whole movie is disgusting anyway.

  36. Julia says:

    The issue of parental alienation appears to have been raised by the Court, this is serious

  37. SJhere says:

    I have always thought Brad Pitt was sold as the next Robert Redford.
    I do think BP has had some type of work done, and he looks terrible these days. Not just older but, awful. (hey, I’m in my mid 50’s and I look older but not like I’ve had work done)

    Just rewatched Interview with a Vampire on Netflix streaming and, my word Cruise and Pitt were both very good it in.
    Pretty sad how Cruise has gone off the rails due to CoS, and Pitt has huge issues.
    Interesting that Cruise has chosen his CoS over Suri, and Pitt has F’d up his relationship with his kids. Money doesn’t make a decent parent. Spend time with your children and stop using them as PR Brad.

    so the Father or the Mother of the Year is judged by the paparazzi appearance with the kids? okey 🙂
