"They can spend the night with him on Christmas Eve," the source explained, adding that Pitt and Jolie (opens in new tab) had talked about spending the holidays together as a family earlier this year when they were "getting along," but that those plans were scrapped and that the actors' "egos have once again derailed" the possibility of the Jolie-Pitt family reuniting to celebrate all together.

"Brad and Angelina are equally responsible for the never-ending drama. Sadly, their children are collateral damage, the insider said of the ongoing battle. "Relations between Brad and Angelina remain extremely tense."

Here's hoping that the tension in the Jolie-Pitt family (opens in new tab) subsides soon, for the sake of everyone involved.
