Brad Pitt broke down in tears when he saw his children for the first time in nearly three weeks after Angelina Jolie announced she was divorcing him.
Pitt had to be supervised by a therapist when he saw at least two of the six children he has with Miss Jolie on a visit lasting just one hour.
The actor played with his children during the ‘gut-wrenching’ meeting – when they began crying too.

He was supervised due to an order from the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, which is currently investigating him. Pitt, 52, is also being investigated by the FBI after allegedly drinking and physically attacking his son Maddox, 15, on board a private jet on September 14, which he denies.
The couple are parents to Maddox, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, ten, and twins Vivienne and Knox, eight.
Pitt’s visit occurred on October 8 at his former family home in Los Feliz, Los Angeles.
While Jolie was in the house, she did not speak to him, reports said.

A source said: ‘He had tears in his eyes and tried to hold it together because he didn’t want them to get upset because he was crying.
Pitt is reportedly ‘desperate’ to agree a deal with Jolie, who has custody of the children for now. He volunteered to undergo random drug and alcohol tests to prove he does not have a problem with either. The first test reportedly came back negative.
