Brad Pitt got a Christmas gift like no other, getting to spend the day with four of his six kids by ex Angelina Jolie, it's been revealed. However, his two oldest children didn't go—because, as RadarOnline.com told you first, angry Maddox and Pax have been shunning their dad!
Following his recent custody agreement with Jolie, 43, "Brad exchanged Christmas gifts with the kids on December 25 at his house," a source exclusively told Us Weekly.
"He has never spoiled the kids for their birthdays or holidays. It wasn’t over the top but low-key." Although Pitt, 55, was “extremely happy” to have most of his brood spend the night, the source said, "Maddox refused to go, and Pax didn’t go either." As RadarOnline.com exclusively reported, Pitt and Jolie's bitter $500 million divorce has shattered their family and some of the kids are taking sides.
An insider told RadarOnline.com that Maddox, 17, Pax, 15, and Zahara, 13, "never want to see Dad, and that hurts him. They're on Angie's side—and always have been." Although Zahara reportedly DID visit her dad for Christmas, the oldest two boys didn't show. The three have spent most of their time with Jolie during the divorce fight.
As another source told RadarOnline.com after the custody truce, "It’s not the big win that Brad was hoping for. He’s getting the joint physical and legal custody he asked for, but there are contingencies."
In fact, according to Us, the Christmas sleepover at Pitt's place was supervised, with a monitor sleeping in a guest room. During the couple's battle, at one point, a judge was forced to order Jolie to let Pitt see his kids, and his camp feels she’s totally poisoned them against their father.
"These kids are at the age where they can decide things for themselves. Brad is left hoping they come to see him out of their own free will," added an insider. The day after Christmas, Jolie was photographed in Los Angeles with four of their children: Zahara, Shiloh, 12, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 10, who were all at Pitt's the day before. Pitt had also hosted some of his kids the day before his birthday on December 17. Maddox reportedly didn't attend that day, either and the star looked somber.
As RadarOnline.com readers know, helicopter mom Jolie recently went with Maddox to visit universities in Seoul, South Korea. Jolie has been planning the children's lives without Pitt's input, according to RadarOnline.com sources. Insiders claimed Pitt has been giving his kids pricey high tech gadgets to show his love.
On December 1, Pitt and Jolie reportedly reached a new custody agreement and avoided a court trial. It reportedly mandated that the two actors will have physical and legal custody of the children and that the monitored visits, which Pitt himself had requested, will come to an end in the next six to eight weeks.
The Pitt-Jolie divorce is still ongoing.
