Angelina Jolie ‘granted Brad Pitt a lengthy stint with their kids’ this summer

Brad Pitt visits the Biennale while out in Venice

Back in May, Angelina Jolie moved herself and her six kids to Albuquerque, New Mexico while she filmed Those Who Wish Me Dead. She was spotted arriving in NM via a private jet mid-May, and by the end of May, paparazzi had gotten photos of the Jolie-Pitt brood out and about in Albuquerque. On July 2nd, the Albuquerque Journal reported that Angelina had already wrapped on Those Who Wish Me Dead, which would mean that principal filming lasted about seven or eight weeks, which I believe. TWWMD isn’t some big-budget spectacular, it’s a smaller film directed by Taylor Sheridan, and while I bet the shoot was grueling, I also bet it was over within two months.

There were lowkey reports from Entertainment Tonight and other outlets about how Angelina “took the kids” for the summer and how Brad had to fight to see them or whatever. I think Angelina was still honoring whatever visitation they had already worked out. The kids apparently did go back to LA for some weekends, and in June, ET reported that Brad might go to New Mexico to see them. As I said though, the filming has wrapped. Angelina was just in Paris for about a week after filming wrapped. So what is this dumb sh-t from The Sun?

Brad Pitt has won a major breakthrough in his messy divorce from Angelina Jolie, after she let him spend the summer with their six children while she works on a film. The former couple, who have Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne together, have been at war since they split in September 2016 — with most arguments being over the custody of their sizeable brood.

But I can reveal Angelina has finally relented and has granted Brad a lengthy stint with their kids. It is the longest amount of time he’ll have spent with them since their messy break up.

A source said: “Angelina is going to be spending a lot of the summer filming Those Who Wish Me Dead, so she reached out to Brad and offered him the chance to look after the children. This is a massive step for them and the children, who have only had limited time with Brad since the break-up. It feels like a really positive move all round and Brad is over the moon. He’s invited his parents, Jane and William, to stay with them at his mansion in LA so they can have some proper family time together.”

[From The Sun]

Brad and his team have been running to The Sun with weird stories and nonsensical exclusives for several years now. The Sun “broke” the story about Brad and Charlize Theron too (which she shut down), and they had bizarre exclusives about Neri Oxman (which she halfway shut down and then she married her boyfriend) and The Sun is always reporting weird sh-t about Angelina wanting Brad back. My point? It’s weird that they didn’t do this story a couple of months ago, when it might have been relevant. But as I said, Angelina has already wrapped on the movie. Now, I wouldn’t be surprised at all if Brad had the kids for a week while she was in Paris. I guess that was the point of the story – Brad wanted us to know that three years after the plane incident, he’s actually getting a whole week with his youngest children. I bet Maddox and Pax weren’t around though.

    The story is so obviously made up that I am even doubting Pitt leaked it. It doesn’t even make him look good, as if his time with the kids is still depending on her wishes. His fans claim he has equal custody.
    Not to mention that as soon as he gets the kids for a longer period he calls his mommy for help.

    • Grace says:

      But the thing is all the obvious stories that the sun has written in the last 3 years have clearly come from Pitt’s team. Yeah those stories don’t necessarily make him look good but giving the circumstances it’s hard even for tabloids to make him look good. What those stories do is muddy the truth and try to put a positive spin on his absence from those kid’s lives. Also those stories put Angie on a bad light which is what he’s going for since the plane incident.

      • Veri tas says:

        I have to be honest- it is VERY unusual for the Dept of Families and Children to still be monitoring visits if the facts were just a little pushing one time thing.they have many more kids in greater risk, that are killed every day WHILE DFC is involved in their cases.
        Something is up with this case

    • Louise177 says:

      The thing I don’t understand is why all of these stories keep saying Angelina controls custody. The “Angelina is evil for keeping the kids away from Brad” never made sense to me when a judge was making all of the decisions. Yet Brad fans, haters, and tabloids keep towing that line.

      • Carol says:

        I think the press thinks that people still want to hear stories about Brad and Angelina and their divorce. Honestly, who cares. Hopefully, Brad and Angie’s kids have learned to ignore these press stories that demonize one parent or the other.

      • Sidewithkids says:

        @Louise, Exactly. They dislike her so much yet they give her all this power. Lol. They don’t even make sense. It’s the courts and judges that make these decisions based on the facts given.

  2. Grace says:

    Brad Pitt is trash and a deadbeat father. It doesn’t matter how many times he pays the Sun to write delusional lies about Angelina and her kids. He missed the twins birthday to spend the day doing press for his latest movie and partying away with his friends.🤢

  3. Gal says:

    Good for him

  4. Nicegirl says:

    His face is so barftastic to me. I cannot believe I used to think he was hot. Now I’m like, Brad Pitt=sleaze ball. 🤮🤦‍♀️

  5. Xtiny says:

    Parental Alienation

    • Sierra says:

      Agree – Brad is totally alienating himself from the children by not being there for them or even spending their birthdays with them.

  6. Sierra says:

    Pr move from Brad’s side as his movie is releasing next week.

  7. Poppy says:

    What is going with their divorce?
    I’m not really a fan of his but love Angelina, I have this feeling that these 2 will not divorce. I don’t want a family to break up and if they can fix things great. But ugh this man is trash he behaviour of the last 3yrs has just been the worst. Attending his ex wife Bday was the icing on the cake for me

    • CA Family Code says:

      They are divorced. They bifurcated the resolution of community property and assets which is still being settled. This is very common in high asset divorce. I also found it weird that he attended her b-day party and even weirder that she invited him. I’m good friends with my ex but we had children together and I’ve known him all my life. Aniston and Pitt only knew each other 6 years before he fell in love with Jolie while filming MMS. Not much of a track record.

    • Sierra says:

      He had time to attend his ex wife’s birthday party but not a single one of his 6 children’s birthdays in 3 years?

      That was the last straw for me as well.

      • LadyT says:

        Did Jolie invite him to celebrate at a family party and he refused? Or vice versa? Or do they both celebrate their children’s birthdays separately? I wouldn’t know. How do you?

      • crogirl says:

        Yeah, he could miss the opportunity to attend the same party as Chelsea Handler

  8. CA Family Code says:

    Every story about this family is made up. This one doesn’t even make sense. Considering Jolie moved ONE MILE from Pitt’s Briarcliff compound a couple of years ago, I am sure it was so that they could share custody. I am sure Jolie is equitable and fair when dealing with co-parenting her children.

  9. AJ says:

    I’m so happy that he is getting to spend more time with the kids. Divorce is rough and if they are finally able to find a way to make it work then I’m happy for all of them. He seems like a good dad.

    • Courtney says:

      Really? He seems like a good dad?

      • Mika says:

        Umm….. HOW does he seem like a good dad?

      • AJ says:

        I’ve never seen anything to the contrary. He quit drinking after the airplane “incident”, has done everything social work and the judge has asked of him, and prior to that ONE incident he was always with his kids. Likewise I don’t see anything that indicates Angie is anything less than a good mother.

      • Ad says:

        It is not only about his ex wife, the kids feelings has to be considered as much as the parents. It seems that he has no bonding with his kids because if he had Angie cannot prevent the children to see him, they will defy her to see him. The kids are old enough to go & see him, he does not live far from where their house is.
        I do not think that Angie is alienating him from his children it’s him who alienated himself from his kids . It’s either his parenting style is non existent or less to be desired by his own kids. At the beginning he did say it is not about Angie NOT wanting him to see his children he is STRUGLING to have a relationship with his children.

  10. Umma says:

    It seems Jolie has stopped doing parental alienation.That’s nice

    • Michelle says:

      Angelina hasn’t done any Parental alienating!!! Pitt fans harp on about the written warning that was leaked, but i’ve seen the whole legal form & it’s very different in context to the one Pitt’s camp leaked.
      She has followed the safety plan set by child sevices & child therapists. The tabloids & media got involved & has made up relentless lies & villified her all for protecting her children. Women are the worst, hating on her because they love Pitt & buy into his PR. You only need to read Daily Mail comments on this made up story alone to see the spitefulness she has to put up with.
      Pitt could literally run over a basket of puppies & people would be like ‘it’s ok brad, we know that evil witch made you do it!’
      Pitt did something serious enough for Angelina to leave & file for divorce after plane incident & for Pitt not allowed to be alone & is monitored with the kids going on three years.
      I truly hope Angelina puts things straight & tells what really happened & puts a stop to the thousands of tabloid lies.

      • Ad says:

        Parental alienation through his own actions & treatment of his own kids & he knows it that up to now still having counselling how to be a loving & caring father!

    • Poppy says:

      Repeat something enough times it becomes a fact:is the method of the Pitt fans
      Didn’t this man himself admit to detaching from his children lives.
      What I loath the most about pitt fans is that the majority posting this drivel are Women.
      We all read the same leaked emails from between their lawyers so kindly STFU

    • minx says:

      How was she alienating them? She’s basically raised the kids alone for nearly three years while he was supposedly getting his sh*t together. He’s a big baby.

    • Mika says:

      Pretty sure she’s doing what she can to protect them from an abuser but… HOKAYYY.

  11. cee says:

    what is going on with him. Is he playing some kind of mind games with the press or is he just devious . The pics with him flashing the family tattoo on his arm which looks like it was even darkened. No pics with him and his kids for 3 years! This new artsy, grundge look and his out and about at all the so called hip Hollywood parties and art shows. I am not sure what image he is trying to portray but it is just strange. JMO

    • 2bounce4u says:

      Yes, I also noticed his tattoo flashing and in some photos you can see what looks like a band ring under his shirt with another pendant.

  12. Dark and Stormy says:

    He has a movie coming out soon with a bunch of sleazy people starring in it so my guess is he is trying to look less questionable so people won’t skip going because absent-alcoholic Brad, creepy uncle Leo, abusive Emile, weirdo Lena, and so on are all in it. There’s a lot of ick going on in the casting so I’m guessing this might be someones idea of good publicity like when they trot the child-girlfriend out for Leo.

    • crogirl says:

      You forgot about the child rape apologist, the great director

    • lucy2 says:

      I could see him trying to reframe the narrative so he can use it for publicity for that movie. He’s certainly never shied away from using his family to promote before. I’m surprised he was never credit on film as “Brad Pitt, Father of Six” as he was written up that way constantly.

  13. Penguin says:

    Has she still got her birth coordinates on her arm? I can still see seven lines in that photo of her tattoo?
    I guess you can think of it as a memory of times gone, but I did think she would have it lasered

    • Trashaddict says:

      Dunno, but I love that dress, the colors pick up the colors in her hair and for once it’s not black. And she looks happy and well.

  14. Lowrider says:

    If this man is not seeing his kids on a regular basis then I don’t know. The way he is living his public and professional life I would imagine his private life is content. If he still had issues with his kids would he be out and about filming and partying?

  15. stacey says:

    I think now that Maddox is going off to college, some of the tension is starting to lift about Brad coming around and seeing his other kids. I really think Maddox did not want anything to do with Brad for a long time and that made seeing the other minor children complicated. Now that Maddox has left the nest and is a legal adult in a few weeks, things might improve with his other kids.

    • Poppy says:

      Was Maddox the cause of his issues?

    • Sierra says:

      So blaming the kids for the parent’s issues?

      It’s not only Maddox but also Pax and Knox who didn’t want to see Brad according to the leaks.

    • stacey says:

      No I’m not saying it’s his fault but it seems like whatever happened on the airplane severed the relationship (for now) with Maddox.

      I imagine it’s hard to coordinate if some of your kids in the family home hate you. It’s probably really awkward and the tension most likely affects the other children one way or another. If the other children want a relationship with their Dad, they have every right to forgive and pursue a relationship with their Dad. I’m just saying it’s probably less tension for the remaining kids in the family home who are trying to pursue a relationship with their father.

  16. Sidewithkids says:

    LOL @ this story and Brad.

  17. Eeeeeeetrain says:

    There is no effing way that plane incident was the first time that he exhibited behavior that frightened his children enough for the relationship to be this frayed. That’s not how kids work. She is and was protecting him big time.

  18. serena says:

    Isn’t a judge supposed to decide visitation rights and all that? Why is she the one supposedly ‘allowing’ him visitation time? How ridiculous he and his team are, really.

    • Marty says:

      This is how his trick to promote his movie always Angie’s name he can drag and his parents also no pics with children for 3 yrs?

  19. Ad says:

    What kids? He has no time for his kids, he loves his freedom no commitments he goes as he pleased. Even when he was living wth them had no time for them it was Angie who was both father & mother to them. He is more into friends, parties & money making business. He should just continue doing what he loves & don’t use Angie & kids. Maybe his dating game is more of use to publicised his movie than using his family, 55? Years old behaving like this? His children behave better!
