Brad Pitt is said to be finding the dragged-up family feud between himself and his son “unfortunate”, which comes as he maintains his silence on the kids since his divorce from Angelina Jolie.
Earlier this week it was revealed that the American actor and film producer’s adopted son previously shared a scathing rant on Instagram about the actor. Shared on a private social media account in 2020, Pax Jolie-Pitt was 16 when he branded his adoptive father a “f***ing awful human”.
It was recently reported that a source claimed Brad is finding it “depressing to see this dragged up”, with The Sun reporting the insider added: “It’s frustrating to see Brad being painted as some kind of ”bad person’; when it’s far from the truth.”
But despite the above claims in regards to Brad’s feelings, another source close to the Hollywood icon has spoken out about how he plans to “remain silent”.
Speaking to Page Six, an insider said: “This is just unfortunate that people would keep trying to bring kids into things. It’s been a long seven years and it’s unfortunate when people unnecessarily raise issues from so far in the past … and don’t take into consideration the impact it has on the whole family.”
The outlet added that the source went on to say that Brad has not spoken about his children in the media in regards to his and Angelina’s divorce or ongoing custody battle, before affirming that he plans on remaining silent.
Earlier this week, MailOnline revealed that Brad’s adoptive son Pax shared the rant on Father’s Day in 2020. At the time, the then-16-year-old penned: “You have made the lives of those closest to me a constant hell. You may tell yourself and the world whatever you want, but the truth will come to light someday.”
In the post, which was allegedly shared on the Instagram story of his private account, Pax added: “So Happy Father’s Day, you f*****g awful human being.”
Brad and Angelina, who split up in 2016, share six children from their marriage together. The couple share 22-year-old Maddox, 19-year-old Pax, 18-year-old Zahara, 17-year-old Shiloh, and 15-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
