On November 9, Brad Pitt was in the place where most of us have always seen him. Also where he fits best: on the red carpet. During the premiere of his new movie “Allied” co-starring Marion Cotillard, he could be seen smiling, waving, posing for the photographers and being all around happy to be there. That might have actually been the case, because we know he is a professional. But sources are saying that on the inside, he was feeling “crushed”. The premiere took place at L.A.’s Regency Village Theatre.
Only his second public appearance after the divorce
The premiere of his new movie marked only his second public appearance since the announcement of the divorce from Angelina Jolie. People who attended have said that he was glad to be there with the fans. He also thanked everyone for the support. Still, you could see the sadness in his eyes.
Angelina Jolie has requested the sole custody of their six children, Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. Since the news broke out that Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt, the actor has reportedly seen his children only three times. And on all the occasions, they were not very warm towards their father, sources report. Especially son Maddox, who was present on only one occasion. Brad Pitt reportedly had to wait three weeks to see his kids for the first time because they were attending therapy.
Physical and verbal abuse accusations
On the same day, November 9, the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services announced that they were officially closing the investigation regarding Brad Pitt’s behavior. Back in September, he was allegedly involved in a quarrel with Maddox, during which he physically and verbally abused his son. It all happened on a private airplane and the entire family witnessed the incident. Still, a file from the FBI will remain open for further investigation.
But Brad Pitt has agreed to let all the children live with their mother in a mansion in Malibu. According to some sources, he does not want to keep things hostile. He wishes to reach a conclusion in a peaceful and friendly manner. The actor wants everything to be in the best interest of their children, so that they would not suffer from their divorce. Also, he wishes to provide moral support for them during this difficult time.
A good parent after all
All in all, it seems like Brad Pitt is a good father to his kids, along with their mother, of course. Even if their life is stressful and they need to move from place to place, from house to house, their kids were always happy. Their parents did everything to keep them safe and protected. They also tried to make each new house feel like home. Now, after the divorce announcement, it seems like things are not going so well. This is why Brad Pitt wants privacy for his children, so they will not suffer from their parent’s split. Also, that they would not be left with emotional traumas.
