Brad Pitt's sons won't see him

BANG Showbiz

BRAD Pitt's eldest sons are reportedly "refusing" to see him.

The 52-year-old actor has been granted supervised visits to his six kids since splitting from wife Angelina Jolie in September, but 15-year-old Maddox - who the 'Moneyball' star was accused of striking during a row on board a private jet - and 13-year-old Pax are said to have walked out of one of their sessions, and would not to attend others.

According to TMZ, court documents submitted by Brad's attorney suggested the two boys may not want to visit the actor.

The website also claims the 41-year-old actress - who also has Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and eight-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne with Brad - had her legal representative email her estranged husband's lawyers on December 1 to urge him to find a new professional to help them all deal with the "trauma" of the row on board the private plane.

The message proposed the former couple "participate in joint sessions with a trauma specialist so that they may learn how to best support and interact with their children."

In September, both Brad and Angelina agreed to attend family therapy sessions as part of their temporary custody agreement.

both sides agreed in September to attend family therapy sessions as part of their temporary custody agreement.

The news comes a day after it was revealed LA Superior Court Judge Richard J. Burdge Jr. denied the 'Tree of Life' star's request to hold an emergency hearing to keep the details of the custody battle private.

But a source said: "The judge only denied the request for an emergency hearing and not the actual motion requesting that the case be sealed."

The insider confirmed that hearing will be held on January 17 and added that "resolving this privately is in the best interests of the entire family, including both parents, so it is surprising that one side would keep pushing to publicise matters involving the children".
