'Brad Pitt doesn't know if he'll get to see his kids at Christmas' amid ugly custody battle with Angelina Jolie
Brad Pitt is still waiting to hear if he will be allowed to spend time with his six children at Christmas.
The actor, 52, doesn't yet know if his children's therapist is willing to sign off on the holiday visitation, UsWeekly.com reported Wednesday. A psychologist who specializes in child custody issues is currently determining the visitation schedule.
'Brad hopes to see the kids for Christmas at some point but when hasn't been determined,' a Pitt source told the magazine.

The former couple are locked in a bitter custody battle over Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10 and eight-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.
DailyMail.com has reached out to representatives for Pitt seeking comment.
The actor's supervised visits and family therapy are part of an agreement signed off on by the former Hollywood power couple as they move forward with their divorce.
A source told DailyMail.com Wednesday: 'Therapeutic visits are determined by therapists whose job it is to ensure the well-being and best interests of the children as they go through this process.'
Jolie filed for divorce in September a few days after an alleged incident on a private jet between Pitt and Maddox.
An investigation into what occurred was conducted by both the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services and the FBI, and both investigations were closed without any charges against the Allied star.

Pitt, however, did agree to court-ordered drug and alcohol testing four times a month and supervised visitation with the children as part of a temporary arrangement agreed in October after Jolie filed for full custody.
While Pitt had hoped to keep all records regarding custody issues under seal to protect the children's privacy, the actress, 41, and her legal team filed papers with the court in Los Angeles last week that made details of the couple's custody agreement public.
Parts of the order, known as the 'October Stipulation,' were later published revealing details of the children's therapy, that a psychologist who specializes in child custody issues was determining the visitation schedule, and that Pitt and Jolie were undergoing group therapy sessions with the children.

The Spy Game star has been requesting more visitation with his children including asking to meet with them two at a time for up to an hour.
But the Maleficent actress has stood her ground with documents filed by her attorney suggesting therapists were not ready to sign off on more visits.
The legal communications revealed that at the end of November, attorneys for Pitt had asked Jolie's attorney if the actress would agree to greater visitation during December between him and the children, in a number of 30 to 60 minute monitored sessions.
TMZ stated that Jolie's team rejected the idea.
Her attorney Laura Wasser accused team Brad of ignoring the best interests of the children as decided by the therapists, TMZ reported.
The former couple, who met on the set of Mr. & Mars. Smith in 2004 and legally wed in 2014, are scheduled to be back in court in January.
