Brad Pitt passes up $5 million for his kids



We've been ignoring the constant reports that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are splitting up for the umpteenth time, mostly because actions speak louder than words. And when Brad passes up a $5 million payday to take his kids trick-or-treating, that doesn't really equate to problems at home, dig?

Life & Style says the prolific papa ditched an invite to the Oct. 31 Grand Prix Ball Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, which was a Formula 1 charity event for clean-water organization Fresh2o. It attracted performers such as Beyonce, Timbaland and a Steve Tyler-less Aerosmith, but Brad decided to dress up as Yo Gabba Gabba's DJ Lance Rock for his kids instead.

“We were told he would be attending as the guest of the Tourism Development & Investment Company,” Global Event Management rep James Magee told Life & Style. “But he was a no-show, and nobody seemed to know why.”

Of course they wouldn't. Of course they wouldn't.
