Los Angeles: According to a report from a magazine, the former A-list couple’s children Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, and twins Vivienne and Knox, have not visited their paternal grandparents since 2016.
A source told the publication: ‘When they were together, Brad and Angelina would take the kids to visit their grandparents. ‘The kids would run riot. The Pitts have a huge backyard and they would go sledding in winter and have campfires in the summer.’
The source also claimed that ‘as far as [they] know’ Jane and William had not been visited by their grandchildren since 2016, and cited tensions between the matriarch and Angelina as the cause. ‘Jane is a Christian conservative who once slammed gay marriage, while Angelina is a liberal who has dated women, so it was never a recipe for a friendship. But no one ever thought it would turn out like this,’ they claimed.
A website has contacted Angelina’s representatives; a spokesperson for Brad has declined to comment. Jane celebrated her 80th birthday party at Brad’s beach house in Goleta, California, on Thursday, but Brad and Angelina’s children appeared to not be at the festivities even though was surrounded by her other grandchildren.
Brad’s brother Doug’s children Landon, Sydney and Reagan, and the actor’s sister Julie’s children Cruz, Rylie, Josie, Caden and Caleb, were all in attendance at the event, and shared a glimpse of the birthday bash on Instagram.
Sydney took to her social media to share a slew of snaps with Jane, including a selfie of all the girls in their bespoke ‘Grammy’s 80th Birthday Banger’ t-shirts.Sharing a sweet tribute to Jane, Sydney wrote: ‘To the best Grammy around, happy 80th Couldn’t love you more!’
