HOL­I­DAY SHOW­DOWN

OK! (USA) - - Couples -

The hol­i­days are sup­posed to be spent with fam­ily, and Brad Pitt’s go­ing to make sure that hap­pens! “He’s wor­ried An­gelina [Jolie] is go­ing to pull a stunt in­volv­ing cus­tody of their kids,” an in­sider tells OK!. The fear set in af­ter one of Angie’s at­tor­neys, Joseph Man­nis, no­ti­fied the court that he’ll be out of town around Thanks­giv­ing and Christ­mas — and re­quested that no hear­ings be held around that time. “Brad’s very con­cerned,” says the source. “He and Angie talked about split­ting up time with the kids. But now he’s stressed she’ll take ad­van­tage of her lawyer’s un­usual mo­tion and sab­o­tage his plans with them.” It wouldn’t be the first time. In June, a judge warned the ac­tress, 43, that she was in dan­ger of los­ing Mad­dox, 17, Pax, 14, Za­hara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and twins Knox and Vivi­enne, 10, if she didn’t start al­low­ing her es­tranged hus­band, 54, bet­ter ac­cess to them. To make mat­ters worse, the source says that Angie’s been promis­ing the kids an over-the-top Thanks­giv­ing with “a full-on catered meal and bounc­ing cas­tle” — and an equally ex­trav­a­gant Christ­mas filled with toys. “Brad’s wor­ried he may get bumped aside,” says the source, adding that he won’t step down without a fight. “He doesn’t care if he has to wreck her lawyer’s own hol­i­day. He’s go­ing to en­sure he has time with his kids.”
