He’s currently embroiled in a bitter custody battle with his ex-wife, Angelina Jolie, but it seems Brad Pitt is trying to win over his kids by transforming his mansion into a sprawling playground
Brad, who is a dad to Maddox, 17, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 10-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, has apparently spent $3 million renovating his home so it resembles a ’mini theme park’.
A source told New Idea the 54-year-old Fight Club actor is doing what it takes to make sure his kids feel at home and have fun when they visit him.
This includes a massive water slide, a giant skate park which ‘snakes all the way around the house’, a bouncy castle and a treehouse.
The ‘Moneyball’ actor and his estranged wife, Angelina Jolie, are expected to spend two to three weeks in court from December 4 in front of a private judge.
However, it was recently reported that Brad would rather they resolved their issues before then, wo their children are spared having to go through the ordeal.
Insiders told The Blast that the World War Z star thinks Angelina is being ‘irresponsible’ with the trial and feels they have been embarrassed enough since their separation, pointing out the children are all old enough to read the news and listen to gossip about their famous parents.
Brad is said to be worried Angelina just wants to make him look bad in her bid for sole custody, while he can see no reason for them to not split care of the children equally.
