According to Star, Angelina Jolie is fighting to keep her minor children away from her ex-husband on both occasions.
Pitt, on the other hand, wants to take Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox to his family in Missouri. However, Jolie doesn’t want to be away from her children on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.
Jolie and Pitt haven’t also come to agreeable terms when it comes to the custody of their kids.
“Brad accuses Angie of throwing a wrench in the wheel anytime he wants to do something. He felt forced to turn this into a courtroom battle,” the source said.
The insider also said that even though things have been miserable for Jolie and Pitt, the exes are too stubborn to make amends and find a middle ground.
“Being stuck in L.A. during the holidays is misery for both of them, but they’re both so stubborn they won’t work with each other towards a resolution,” the source said.
Pitt and Jolie are still waiting for the judge’s decision on their custody battle hearing. According to reports, the judge’s decision will be released in December.
Last week, the A-listers, reportedly, called in a slew of witnesses to testify on their behalf and to prove that they are fit to have custody of their minor children.
“It’ll be hanging over Brad and Angie the entire time. They’re both bracing for a tense holiday period,” the source said.
Earlier this month, Entertainment Tonight revealed that Pitt is asking for 50/50 physical and legal custody of his kids with Angelina Jolie. However, a source told the magazine that the actress would only agree with this request on one condition.
Since Jolie has been wanting to relocate abroad with her kids, she wants Pitt to allow them to travel without his consent.
Years ago, a judge ruled that Jolie can’t relocate to a different country because the kids also need to be close to their dad.
“Angelina Jolie wants to be fair when it comes to custody. She is very structured with the children. Brad has high hopes [they can] try to make it work because of the importance of co-parenting,” the source said.
