It was weeks after Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt that he finally got to reunite with his kids, but as we previously reported not all six were present.
According to Us Weekly, 15-year-old Maddox Jolie-Pitt refused to attend the monitored meet-up with Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox on October 8.

A source close to the actress revealed:
"He chose not to go and stayed with Angie."
While no explanation was given, an insider asserted "Maddox is very close with Angie," while another explained of the 15-year-old's choice, saying:
"He doesn't really see himself as Brad's son."
Regardless, it sounds like the reunion didn't exactly go as planned for the actor.
One Pitt insider dished on his waiting for the right time to schedule the visitation, saying:
"He wanted to make sure the meeting would be the most productive for the kids."
Another source explained:
"He and Angie agreed on steps that needed to be completed. He wanted to wait until the timing was best."
And as you might imagine, the actual get-together "was emotional for him," one confidante revealed. But with a therapist monitoring the meet-up per the temporary agreement suggested by the Department of Children and Family Services, a source added:
"It wasn't full of joy and happiness."
With the DCFS re-evaluating the former couple's temporary agreement on October 20, it's unclear what will happen next or if Brad will be seeing the kids again before then. For now, "no other visitations have been scheduled," a source divulged.
However, a confidante asserts Maddox won't be warming up to a get-together, spilling:
"Maddox never wants to see Brad again."
Currently, all six kiddos are living with Angie, but one insider close to the actress makes it clear:
"[Angelina] is not trying to poison the kids against Brad. … She wants them to have a relationship with him once their health and safety is assured."
