• Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's three older kids are aware of the details of their messy divorce, a report said
  • Maddox and Pitt have a nonexistent relationship, according to a source
  • Jolie said she and Pitt decided to call it quits for the wellbeing of their family

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's three older children, Maddox, Pax, and Zahara, are aware of the details of their parents' messy divorce, a report said.

Jolie and Pitt have yet to finalize their divorce since separating in 2016, with the latest dispute centering on the actress' request to fire the judge overseeing their case. Four years into the divorce saga, Pitt and Jolie have not been able to hide the details of their legal proceedings from their three older kids.

"Maddox, Pax and Zahara are acutely aware of the back-and-forth of the divorce," a source told Us Weekly.

Maddox, 19, Pax, 16, and Zahara, 15, along with their younger siblings Shiloh, 14, and 12-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, have been seeing a family therapist amid their parents' ongoing divorce, the report said.

Another insider earlier told the publication that Maddox has a nonexistent relationship with Pitt since their alleged altercation during a private jet flight to Los Angeles in 2016. The father and son have been estranged for years.

Like their brother, Pax and Zahara have also been given a choice regarding whether or not they wanted to see their father. "Not seeing him has continued to be what they choose," the insider said.

According to the source, Pitt sees his estrangement from Maddox as a "tremendous loss." And following Maddox's decision to study at Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea, the actor hoped that Pax would be more open to reconnecting and spending time with him.

"Brad is hopeful that Pax will also be interested in reconnecting without the influence of his older brother," the source said.

Meanwhile, Jolie opened up about her decision to split with Pitt in a recent interview with Vogue, revealing that she chose to end their marriage for the "wellbeing" of their family. The "Maleficent" star was convinced that parting ways was the best choice for them.

"I separated for the wellbeing of my family. It was the right decision. I continue to focus on their healing," Jolie told Vogue in June.

"Some have taken advantage of my silence, and the children see lies about themselves in the media, but I remind them that they know their own truth and their own minds," she explained. "In fact, they are six very brave, very strong young people.”

Pitt and Jolie had not been on speaking terms following their separation in September 2016. But they opened their line of communication a couple of months later and spoke again for the best interest of their kids. In fact, Pitt has been spotted visiting Jolie’s residence to see their six children.

However, the two were once again embroiled in another dispute when Jolie requested to have the judge handling their divorce, John W. Ouderkirk, removed from their case. Pitt has expressed opposition to Jolie's request. The actor's camp accused Jolie of stalling their legal battle, but the latter said that she only wants a fair trial.

Jolie and Pitt’s child custody trial is scheduled for October.
