Brad Pitt wants joint custody of his kids, but so far, he has reportedly been holding off on a custody battle with his estranged wife Angelina Jolie.

According to a new report, Pitt requested joint custody of his six kids, Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne and Knox, on Nov. 4, but he is said to be holding off when it comes to pushing for a court hearing.

“Brad is giving the kids time. He’s focused on whatever is best for their well-being,” an insider explained to Us Weekly, according to a report by Hollywood Life. “At this point [in time] the kids wouldn’t want to live with him, and they are of the age when their opinions matter.”

With Jolie, Pitt has six children, three of whom are adopted and three who are biological.

In addition to the children reportedly not wanting to live with their father, the source also claimed they “did not request to be with Brad on Thanksgiving,”

Pitt reportedly spent Thanksgiving in Turks & Caicos with a close friend while Jolie and his children remained in Los Angeles, where they are believed to be renting a home in Malibu, Calif.

Jolie filed for divorce on Sept. 19 after two years of marriage and requested full custody of her and Pitt's children. A short time later, Pitt was accused of getting physical with their oldest son, 15-year-old Maddox, but was ultimately cleared of all charges by both the Los Angeles Department of Child and Family Services and the FBI.
