His cousin, Roger Hal Hillhouse, told, "I'll definitely defend him! Brad Pitt is a good father. ... He wouldn't hurt his kids..."

Pitt reportedly has only seen five of his six children since the split, and he was supervised during the visits. His oldest son, Maddox Jolie Pitt, was not with his siblings when they saw their dad, according to reports.

But Pitt's cousin told that his own parents are a big influence in all of the children's lives and they weren't going to be cut off from them in the divorce.

"His mother and father, Jane and Bill, are great grandparents to those kids. It's a good family unit," Hillhouse said.

And the family is weathering this storm together.

"We're all saddened by the fact that the children, Brad and Angelina are having to go through this," said Hillhouse.
