Brad Pitt recently made headlines after he was photographed arriving at an airport in Italy.

Immediately after his photos surfaced online, tabloids claimed that Pitt travel all the way to Europe to celebrate Knox and Vivienne’s 14th birthday. After all, Angelina Jolie and her kids arrived in Italy days after Pitt landed.

Now, Us Weekly is claiming that Pitt really traveled to Italy to spend time with his four youngest children. And there are allegedly no photos to document the outing because they met up in secret.

“He doesn’t want to be photographed. So, the kids meet him nearby, where they won’t be seen by people,” the source said.

The source also claimed that even though Pitt reunited with her daughter, Shiloh recently, he couldn’t help but notice that there was some resistance on her part.

“She hasn’t wanted to see him on recent visits. Though it’s heartbreaking, Pitt won’t stop trying to mend fences with the teen. He lives and breathes for his kids. Family is everything to him,” the source said.

However, one should take the tabloid’s claims with a grain of salt. There are no photos of Pitt with his children because he wasn’t able to meet them.

Pitt and his ex-wife, Jolie are still fighting over the custody of their kids. So, it seems unlikely for the actor to be allowed to spend time with them.

It is also important to note that Pitt is preparing for the promos for his upcoming movie, Without Blood. And this could be the reason why he is in Italy.

It’s not also true that Pitt experienced firsthand some resistance from his daughter, Shiloh. Just last week, other tabloids claimed that the 16-year-old missed her dad so much.

In May, a source told New Idea that Shiloh even put her foot down and urged Jolie to allow her to see her dad.

“Shiloh is pushing back. She’s even saying that she’s going to go to college as far away as possible just to get some freedom,” the source said.

The inconsistencies and contradicting stories from the different tabloids prove that they are just speculating on Pitt and Shiloh’s relationship. But the truth is, no one would know for sure how they are because their conversations most likely happen in private.
