Brad to spend Christmas alone

Amy Stevenson

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's divorce continues to get nastier, with the actress reportedly refusing to allow him access to their children over Christmas.

The 52-year-old is set to spend the holidays alone, after Ange rejected his request to spend more time with his kids "in a number of 30-60 minute monitored visits", according to TMZ.

On Wednesday, Brad and Angelina's attorneys went head-to-head when the actor asked the courts to make all documents relating to his custody battle with the 41-year-old Maleficent star private, however a judge denied the request.

Brad's representation, Lance Spiegel, reportedly claimed that while his client has been compliant with the child therapy process he has been undertaking, "the therapy team has ignored or disregarded issues that [Brad] has raised."

"Regardless of [the therapists’] views, there is no reason for Brad not to request court orders for more access to the children," Lance added.

Brad and Angelina are parents to Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and eight-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

This isn't the first holiday Brad has spent alone since Angelina filed for divorce in September, with reports claiming he spent Thanksgiving with a friend because Angelina "wouldn't let him" see their children.

Despite earlier reports the actor was welcome at Angelina's home to spend the holiday weekend with her and their six children, Page Six revealed Brad was “hanging out with one of his buddies” thousands of kilometers away instead.

And while some have accused Ange of conducting a smear campaign against her partner of 12 years, Brad is now fighting back and reportedly intends to take his ex to court.

Brad's legal team are seeking to use Angelina's psych records from her 2000 stay at UCLA's Neuropsychiatric Institute, according to OK! Magazine, as well as detailing to the court her pharmacy records.

"Angie will face absolutely gruelling questions on the witness stand," a source tells the publication.
