For a man who has six kids, Brad Pitt is coming off as the loneliest man on the planet. Pitt won big at the “Golden Globes” this week taking home the award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood.” A well-deserved start to his year. but we have to wonder, why did the father of six show up to the prestigious award ceremony without at least one of his children? We get it they have their own lives; some are in university; some may have been too young but not one of them could show up and be in the presence of their father as he accepts an award?
Pitt has had a few rough years after ex wife Angelina Jolie and he decided to go their separate ways. The couple filed for divorce in 2016 with the kids spending a majority of their time with Jolie. Citing irresponsible difference’s, the couple had a hard time navigating divorce. Jolie accused Pitt of a few horrible things including verbal abuse and being a danger to their kids. In specific, she accused Pitt of getting physical with son Maddox. Jolie petitioned for primary custody of the children and even threw out to the public that Pitt had been drinking heavily while she was accused of deliberately keeping him away from the kids.
The couple are still yet to settle their divorce and now that we are in 2020, fans are beginning to low-key feel bad for Pitt. The actor gave a great, humorous speech at the Golden Globes on Sunday night and he even made former partner Jennifer Aniston laugh when he made a joke about sharing the raft with co-star Leonardo DiCaprio if he was in “Titanic” with him. The actor explained his absence of a date to such a big event. "I wanted to bring my mom, but I couldn't, because anyone I stand next to, they say I'm dating, and that would just be awkward." He isn’t wrong the actor has been accused of dating everyone under the sun and some people more than once.
We can only speculate that despite Jolie’s attempts to downplay Pitt as a father his decision to show up to the awards show without even one of his kids is most likely strategic. Pitt knows how high-profile of a celebrity he is, and he is most likely trying to let his kids live as normal of a life as possible. Yet, we can’t help but wonder what the accusations from Jolie has done for his relationship with his kids or better yet what his actions have done for his relationship with his children.
However, Pitt is not one to mention his kids a lot he and Jolie were notoriously private when they were married especially when it involves their kids. According to TMZ, and per their custody agreement, Pitt still sees his children regularly and while his relationship with Maddox is strained a bit, it’s still intact. However, we would have loved to see one of the kids represent with their father, someone he could look out into the audience at. Fortunately, he was still in good company with his co-stars and celebrity friends.
