Pitt gave a statement to People and said that his focus is on their six children—Maddox, 15; Pax, 12; Zahara, 11; Shiloh, 10; Knox, 8; and Vivienne, 8—during this chaotic period. “I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids,” he said. “I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time.”
