“Angelina did not invite Brad to spend Thanksgiving with their kids,” the insider revealed.

Earlier this week, it was reported that the Allied star had been cleared by the FBI of charges that he became physical with 15-year-old son Maddox while on board the family’s private jet in September.

The Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) has also cleared Brad of child abuse allegations in its own investigation.

Brad and Angelina have agreed to a temporary arrangement which sees the children living with Angelina, with Brad granted supervised visitation.

While their investigation was carried out, Brad and Angelina had agreed to a temporary plan which saw the kids living with Angelina while Brad had supervised visitation. As per the DCFS recommendation, Brad and Angelina also agreed to attend individual counselling as well as family counselling sessions with their children.

However, a source tells People that Brad has been “very unhappy with the arrangement”.

In happier times, Brad had opened up about playing a big part in the family’s Thanksgiving celebrations – especially when it comes to the holiday cooking.

“Yeah, I’ll get in there, I”ll mess it up a little bit,” he joked to Extra.

“We got Thanksgiving, man, I’m all over that turkey.”

Angelina filed for divorce from Brad on September 19, after two years of marriage. She listed their date of separation as September 15 – one day after the alleged incident on the family’s private plane is believed to have taken place.
