Brad Pitt is not “begging” Angelina Jolie to let him spend Christmas with their kids, despite a new tabloid report claiming the estranged spouses are battling for custody over the holidays. Gossip Cop is told the family’s plans have been settled, and there’s no truth to the alleged drama.

According to In Touch, the actor is making a last-ditch effort to be with his children as much as possible during the holiday season, but his estranged wife is making the situation difficult. A so-called “source” tells the magazine, “His Christmas wish is to have equal custody. But at this point, the divorce is still stonewalled, and Angie has been talking about taking the kids away to a foreign country for Christmas.”

The outlet’s dubious insider adds, “Angie and Brad are still playing tug-of-war with their kids… Angie’s in the driver’s seat when it comes to getting the children for the holidays, and she’s taking full advantage of that.” The supposed source further maintains that Jolie “shoots down” Pitt whenever he asks for more time with the kids, but “he’s doing whatever it takes, whether it be begging, pleading or cajoling Angelina to make it happen.”

However, this story seems to have been concocted because Pitt only had one visit with his kids on Christmas last year. But from what Gossip Cop understands, this year’s plans have been negotiated by the exes’ private judge, and Jolie isn’t the one unilaterally making decisions. With Christmas less than a week away, the estranged spouses have worked out a schedule, and there’s no major conflict happening. A source close to the situation assures us the tabloid’s account of events is entirely inaccurate.

In Touch is the same unreliable magazine that Gossip Cop busted last month for falsely claiming Jolie was secretly getting married to a wealthy British philanthropist. The magazine obviously knows very little when it comes to the ex-couple’s personal life, and that goes for their holiday plans as well.
