Jolie asks Pitt for truce as kids want them for Thanksgiving
Los Angeles, Nov 23 (IANS) Actress Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are reportedly reuniting on Thanksgiving despite their divorce and custody battle.
The estranged couple’s six children Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10 and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8 are begging their parents to spend Thanksgiving together as a family, reports okmagazine.com.
“Shiloh has been begging Brad and Angelina for weeks to start being nice to each other. Then she sent them both an emotional email asking for the family to spend Thanksgiving together. She let them know that it was what the kids were hoping for,” said a source close to the family.
According to the source, Jolie called Pitt and invited him over for a family holiday dinner.
“It was a totally aboveboard conversation. He thanked her for the invitation and she said ‘I think it’ll be good for us’,” the source said.
Pitt will be bringing the turkey as he “wants the kids to feel like it’s the old days, like they’re a family again.”
The reunion will only be a “two-day truce.”
“This split is as contentious as ever but Brad and Angie know the kids need the security and stability right now. They’re both going to have to dig very deep. Brad’s incredibly apprehensive about the thought of meeting Angelina face-to-face. But he’d put up with almost anything for the chance to spend Thanksgiving with his kids,” said the source.
