Brad Pitt escapes to posh island for Thanksgiving
jamuna news desk: Brad Pitt spent Thanksgiving weekend “hanging out with one of his buddies” because Angelina Jolie wouldn’t let him see their children over the holiday, Page Six has exclusively learned.
Reports had said Pitt might join Jolie and their brood in spite of their bruising divorce battle. But the two were 3,000 miles apart.
A spy said, “He was at Amanyara in Turks and Caicos over Thanksgiving in a private villa,” adding, “Angie wouldn’t let him see the kids.”
Another source said, “Brad was with one of his male buddies for the weekend.”
Villas at the posh island retreat reportedly go for up to $34,000 per night.
It’s the same getaway where Kelly Ripa headed with husband Mark Consuelos days after the bombshell news that her “Live With Kelly” co-host Michael Strahan was headed to “Good Morning America.”
Chelsea Clinton took time off there during her mother’s campaign this year while she was pregnant, and other stars who’ve stayed include Olivia Wilde, Emily Ratajkowski and rocker Bryan Ferry, who got married at Amanyara in 2012.
Pitt and Jolie were known to be guests at Amanyara’s sister properties Amanpuri in Thailand and Amangiri in Utah.
Despite reports that Jolie had called a “temporary truce” so that Pitt could break bread with the family for the holiday, we hear that Jolie and the kids were in LA.
Before the island retreat, Pitt was on a whirlwind tour for new film “Allied.” Steven Spielberg was in the audience at an East Hampton showing, Page Six reported.
Pitt filed for joint custody of the kids this month after Jolie filed divorce papers in LA in September.
He was cleared last week in an alleged FBI abuse investigation stemming from an incident with one of the couple’s kids, Maddox, on a private jet.
The LA Department of Children and Family Services also cleared Pitt of any charges.
Reps did not comment.
On Monday, a report that Pitt was secretly dating Kate Hudson was widely shot down.
