It’s always hard balancing a family with one’s own individual identity. Kids pick up on bad habits, and no one wants to look like a bad influence. Well, Brad Pitt’s kids with Angelina Jolie aren’t fans of his smoking habit. Both Pitt and Jolie have been smokers on and off throughout their lives, though Jolie quit several years ago. According to RadarOnline’s source, “They [the kids] are extremely health conscious and have been taught from an early age that smoking is terrible.” Pitt apparently transitioned to vaping but has presumably gone back to smoking regular cigarettes, allegedly two packs a day.
Pitt has had a rough go of it with his kids lately. His divorce and custody arrangement with Jolie is still being “dragged out,” with claims that Pitt is going to implement fees for the delays. Additionally, while it was announced that he was taking mini-vacations with his six children, there were rumors none of them would be seeing him for Father’s Day. Pitt was also absent from daughter Shiloh’s 13th birthday.
The kids’ worries are certainly well-founded considering what we all know about cigarettes, but when added to Pitt’s other issues with his children, it sounds like there’s more bubbling under the surface. Pitt’s smoking sends a mixed message, but is this meant to explain away why he and his children haven’t been together lately? Pitt was praised for his good looks during the recent trailer drop for his new film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood — regardless of what he does in his personal life. But it would be a great show of love for his kids to ditch the cancer sticks completely.
