Pax made headlines when he posted a Father’s Day message to Brad on his Instagram Stories, in which he called him “world class a------.”

You will never understand the damage you’ve done to my family because you are incapable of doing so," Pax said.

He added, “You have made the lives of those closest to me a constant h---. You may tell yourself and the world whatever you want, but the truth will come to light someday. So, happy Father’s Day, you f------ awful human being!!!”

After the nasty Father’s Day rant, Brad’s friends spilled about the actor’s reaction to the post and shared how frustrating it was to see their pal being painted as some kind of “bad person.” The insider told The Sun that Brad has great respect for all of his children.
