Brad Pitt Spends Father’s Day in London with His Kids Amid Custody Dispute

It’s Father’s Day on the other side of the pond and Brad Pitt is celebrating with his children.

Last week, a judge presiding over Pitt and Angelina Jolie‘s divorce proceedings established a detailed schedule for the actor to spend time with Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 9-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox, who reside with Jolie as she films Maleficent 2 in London. The court papers obtained by PEOPLE stated, “the children not having a relationship with their father is harmful to them,” and that Jolie, 43, could lose full custody of the kids if she doesn’t allow them to grow their relationships with Pitt.

Maddox, 16, his oldest son isn’t included in the timetable. That’s because according to the court, Maddox is old enough to decide for himself how much time he wants to spend with his father.

“He is a great dad and always loved being with his kids,” a Pitt source says. “He doesn’t talk badly about Angie, but he feels it’s her fault that the kids don’t want to spend more time with him.”

Pitt has been in the U.K. since last week, when he was seen on Wednesday riding his bike across the Coworth Park hotel property, only a few miles from where Jolie and the kids stay in England.

When filming starts on his next movie, Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, later this summer, Pitt will balance his time between London and Los Angeles, where he maintains a “very busy schedule,” the insider says. “He often attends dinner parties, socializes with friends and attends events.”

For last year’s Father’s Day, Pitt celebrated one day early. Several of the kids were seen being dropped off at the Okja executive producer’s Los Angeles house in the morning, before flying out to France with their mom later that day.

Fox Might Pull Some Networks Off-Air This Weekend Due To Contract Dispute

Fox Networks Group has threatened to pull some of its networks off-air as contract negotiations with major cable provider Charter Communications continue to stall.

That’s bad news for sports fans ― and anyone keeping up with “Feud.”

While Fox News and the Fox broadcast network would not be affected, Deadline reports, FX would go dark along with National Geographic, Fox Sports and 19 regional sports channels for subscribers to Charter’s Spectrum service, formerly known as Time Warner Cable.

With all the cheesy histrionics of a political attack ad, Fox Networks warned in a clip aired in affected markets that the outage would come during the NBA and NHL playoffs and certain MLB games. (Watch it above.) Episodes of “The Americans,” “Feud” and “Fargo” on FX would also not be accessible, should the blackout continue.

A carriage agreement between Fox Networks and Charter expired March 31, Variety reported. Because the two sides have failed to reach a deal so far, Fox claims that Charter is in breach. The cable provider purchased Time Warner Cable in May 2016, and rebranded it shortly after.

In a statement provided to Variety, Fox points out several teams whose coverage could be affected, including the St. Louis Cardinals and Blues, Kansas City Royals, Cleveland Cavaliers and Cincinnati Reds along with “many other” games. 

Fox isn’t the first network group to have problems negotiating with Charter, however. Earlier this year, Univision networks went dark for about 36 hours ― affecting about 2.5 million Latinx homes in the U.S., according to the Los Angeles Times ― until a judge stepped in. Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that.
