He reportedly wasn’t able to see his kids on Thanksgiving, so instead of wallowing stateside, Brad Pitt took a much-needed vacation. After Angelina Jolie banned him from seeing the children, the actor indulged in an island getaway, according to a new report. Get the details here!
“Brad was at Amanyara in Turks and Caicos over Thanksgiving in a private villa,” Page Six reports. “Angie wouldn’t let him see the kids.” The 52-year-old took the trip to the $34,000 per night resort with one of his guy friends, according to the paper.
This trip comes after Brad spent weeks on the road promoting his new movie, Allied, on a press tour that began less than two months after news broke that he and Angelina were divorcing. Although he’d probably rather have spent the holiday with his six children, the actor certainly deserved a getaway like this after the crazy couple of months he’s had!
Meanwhile, Angie and the kids reportedly stayed in L.A. for Thanksgiving, and as Us Weekly previously reported, Brad was “crushed” when he didn’t get an invite. Brad was just recently cleared by the FBI and Department of Child & Family Services in two separate child abuse investigations, and is now concentrating on getting joint custody of the kids. However, as far as we know, Angie is still demanding sole physical custody, so this is gearing up to be a pretty contentious court battle.
As of now, it’s unknown how Brad and Angie plan to divide their time with the children for Christmas, but it would certainly be pretty harsh if he’s unable to spend time with them, especially at this time of year. HollywoodLife.com has reached out to reps for comment.
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Brad spending Thanksgiving away from his kids? Do you think he’ll get joint custody like he wants?
