  • Pitt's biological children, 14-year-old Shiloh and 11-year-old twins, Knox and Vivienne, will spend some time with the actor over the holidays, a source told Us Weekly
  • The source says Pitt and his ex-wife, Angelina Jolie, had discussed celebrating the holidays together earlier this year, but that the tension between them has spiked again and they scrapped the plans for a joint celebration.

Brad Pitt will see at least three of his kids for Christmas this year, amid his ongoing custody battle with ex-wife Angelina Jolie.

The 57-year-old actor will see his biological children—14-year-old Shiloh and 11-year-old twins, Knox and Vivienne—on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, a source told Us Weekly

"They can spend the night with him on Christmas Eve," the source explained, adding that Pitt and Jolie 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 subsides soon, for the sake of everyone involved.
