In times of stress and uncertainty, one can only hope there's someone you can lean on for help. Reports that Brad Pitt wants to spend more time with his children are not only heartwarming, but also well-timed, as rumors are surfacing that Angelina Jolie is close to "rock bottom."

  • With past reports of tension between Brad and Angie, it seems the celeb dad of six is working to be around his kids more.

    "He's specifically working on movie projects based in California so he can be near them," the source continued. "It's temporary ... while his kids adjust to their new lifestyle." Brad and Angelina, who have six children together -- son Maddox, 16; son Pax, 13; daughter Zahara, 12; daughter Shiloh, 11; and twin son and daughter Knox and Vivienne, 9 -- shocked the world with news of their split last September.

    "They run riot and don't have any rules. They clearly miss their dad," the insider continued. "Ange is barely getting any sleep, and that's not helping her health either."

    "Brad knows he can't count on scheduled days with the kids ... because Angie has changed the plans abruptly at the last minute multiple times," an insider revealed to the publication. "There are two choices for Brad: Fight back and get angry every time she pulls a stunt, which would only impact the kids, or handle it like a mature adult. If that means he won't see the kids as much or at the holidays, he has made peace with it."
