Brad Pitt To Spend Thanksgiving Without Angelina Jolie And Children: ‘He’s Crushed’

Brad Pitt won’t be spending Thanksgiving with his estranged wife Angelina Jolie and their six children, multiple sources told US Weekly.

Angelina did not invite Brad to spend Thanksgiving with their kids,” a source said.

The 51-year-old actor has met with his six children (Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and eight-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne) only three times since Jolie, 41, filed for divorce September 19 after two years of marriage.

“He’s crushed,” an insider said last week. “Brad has been deferential on what’s best for them and limits their stress.”

Another source close to Angelina said that their six kids didn’t “warm up to him” in the three supervised visits granted to Brad.

This year will be the first time Brad Pitt won’t be spending Thanksgiving with Angelina Jolie and their six kids. Last year, Pitt told Extra that he cooks for his family on holidays.

“We’ve got Thanksgiving, man — I’m all over that turkey,” Pitt said.

Brad is still embroiled in a custody battle with estranged wife Jolie since the latter filed for divorce a few months ago.

The Brangelina split turned ugly when Jolie filed a child abuse charge against Pitt, who allegedly had a physical altercation with 15-year-old son Maddox after a heated exchange with Jolie aboard a private plane.

The DCFS conducted an investigation on Pitt following the child abuse allegations, ruling that he is only allowed monitored visits with the children.

Entertainment Tonight confirmed early this month that the DCFS had cleared Brad Pitt of child abuse allegations. According to a source close to the couple, the investigation yielded no validation or proof of child abuse.

Angelina Jolie expressed relief that the investigation had been closed in an issued statement.

“The job of the DCFS is to make sure the children are in a safe and secure situation. As we said earlier this week, childcare professionals encouraged a legal agreement accepted and signed by both sides that was in the best interest of the children. Angelina said from the beginning that she felt she had to take action for the health of the family and is relieved that after their eight-week involvement, the DCFS is now satisfied the safeguards are put in place that will allow the children to heal.”

The FBI also announced that they have cleared Brad Pitt of the child abuse charges.

Laura Eimiller, a spokeswoman for the FBI, issued a statement on the matter.

“In response to allegations made following a flight within the special aircraft jurisdiction of the United States which landed in Los Angeles carrying Mr Brad Pitt and his children, the FBI has conducted a review of the circumstances and will not pursue further investigation.”

“No charges have been filed in this matter,” she said.

In the meantime, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are still engaged in a custody battle over their six children. The Allied actor issued a request to the Los Angeles Superior Court that he and Jolie share joint physical and legal custody of the kids. Jolie, on the other hand, wants sole physical custody and requests that Brad only be allowed scheduled visits.

“I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids. I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time,” Pitt said around the time of the split with Angelina.

Meanwhile, Pitt has been busy traveling around the world to promote his upcoming film Allied, opposite Marion Cotillard.

It remains unclear if FBI’s decision to clear Brad Pitt in child abuse investigations will have any bearing in his custodial battle with Angelina Jolie over their six children.
