The holidays are approaching, which means it's the season for uncomfortable family dinners. Unfortunately, that will likely be the case when it comes to the Jolie-Pitt family because Brad Pitt isn't even on speaking terms with two of his kids.
To catch you up to speed, Angelina Jolie initiated a divorce from Brad after an alleged incident on a plane involving him and Maddox. Now, Maddox reportedly doesn't even consider himself as Brad's son. Maddox's younger brother Pax apparently also doesn't have much of a relationship with Brad right now either. As for Zahara and Brad, their relationship is unclear, but all three of his oldest children won't spend Christmas with him this year.
According to an Us Weekly source, "Brad's planning on having the younger kids [Shiloh, Knox, and Vivienne] on Christmas Eve." (Zahara did spend Christmas with Brad last year, but it looks like she's trying something different this time.) The source went on to say, "He's hoping they'll want to spend the night, but he's really just looking forward to Christmas Eve with them." The publication also noted that this Christmas will be the first since his divorce in which a "monitor" won't be present.
In August, another Us report claimed Maddox and Pax didn't spend Christmas with their dad because of "simmering resentment." Also, they're both teenagers who tend to spend more time with their friends than their parents and younger siblings.
Maddox is currently in college in South Korea, and it's not fully clear if he, Zahara, and Pax will spend the holidays with their mom Angelina Jolie.
