Brad's lonely Father's Day

It's his first Father's Day since splitting from Angelina Jolie, but sadly for Brad Pitt, the day wasn't spent celebrating with his six children.

Instead, the actress was spotted at the airport in the day leading up to Father's Day in the US, taking their brood of six to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, according to E! News.

However, the outlet adds that despite spending the actual day alone, 53-year-old Brad did get time with his kids before they jetted out of the country.

E! adds that "several" of his children were seen being dropped at his LA property, where they spent "spent several hours" before returning home to Ange.

Brad and Ange's custody battle over their children turned nasty last year, before Hollywood's former golden couple finally reached a temporary agreement.

While Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11, and 8-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox— have remain in her custody, Brad was granted "therapeutic visitation" rights.

Brad recently opened up about the split and how he has adjusted to living by himself during a candid profile with GQ.

"It was too sad to be here at first, so I went and stayed on a friend's floor, a little bungalow in Santa Monica," he admitted.

"This house was always chaotic and crazy, voices and bangs coming from everywhere, and then, as you see, there are days like this: very…very solemn."
