The actor, who has kept a low profile since Angelina filed for divorce on September 20, is reported to be devastated by the series of events that have transpired in recent weeks.
The Hollywood super-couple shocked the world last month when announcing their divorce after 12 years together.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt became a symbol of the ideal couple, succeeding in their careers and marriage as they raised six children.
Angelina has requested sole physical custody and joint legal custody, but Brad is fighting for complete shared responsibility.
Angelina Jolie doesn't want Brad Pitt to be prosecuted over child abuse allegations and threatened that she will remain "radio silent" regarding the divorce trial if Pitt will be charged.
There is allegedly "no way to conclusively prove" that Brad intentionally harmed Maddox. They have six children: Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, eight. "He's playing along but he is so insulted and he can't believe how drastically his life changed in a matter of weeks".
"The initial visit is with a therapist present and the therapist then has the power to either allow Brad subsequent unmonitored visits or insist on being present whenever he's around the kids", TMZ reported.
Jolie and Pitt each volunteered to participate in individual counseling, and Pitt also agreed to undergo drug and alcohol testing, though he was not required to, sources said. A new report claims that he's been relying on his family, especially his mom, Jane. But that golden image quickly became tarnished when news broke that Angelina had filed for divorce from Brad, with some stunned Twitter users proclaiming that love had died along with Brangelina's marriage.
"I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids", said Pitt in the statement.
In the midst of her divorce from Brad Pitt, Angela Jolie and her team have begun working with well known crisis manager Judy Smith, who has handled public celebrity scandals with discretion.
