While the rumors swirl, and report after report tells all dirt about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's split-up, Brad says in a statement that he's putting family first. Pitt, age 52, really "wants to work things out privately and amicably" according to a Pitt-Jolie insider who spoke to E! News.
Pitt's been "blindsided" by Jolie's accusations of child abuse, but he's not willing to let that mud stick and insists Angelina's shade isn't true. Pitt's seven (or possibly fewer) deadly sins don't include child abuse apparently. What's more, he says he's "putting kids first" as the messy divorce just keeps getting messier.
Us Magazine reports that the Fight Club actor is setting aside professional glory to make things better for the six kids that he's determined to be a good dad to. Brad made a statement for the mag and "announced that he's not attending a Wednesday, September 28, screening for his new film Voyage of Time" entirely because of his devotion his family, and decision to keep on "focusing on family" since Jolie filed for divorce.
