Brad Pitt and Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea scuba dive on tropical getaway as actor's battle with Angelina Jolie rages on

BRAD Pitt has been spotted scuba diving in Turks and Caicos alongside Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea, escaping his ongoing custody battle with Angelina Jolie.

The 57-year-old took a dip in the crystal waters off the luxurious island, joining the rock-band bassist for some vacation fun.

Brad and close friend Flea welcomed in the New Year in Turks and Caicos, taking a much-needed boys trip to get away from the drama.

The Once Upon A Time In Hollywood actor has been gripped in a court battle against ex-wife Angelina Jolie, fighting for custody of their children.

Looking unfazed, Brad gave onlookers a glimpse of his rarely seen back tattoos, going shirtless as he put on a snorkelling mask.

The impressive ink included Sanskrit text and a variety of designs that sat apart on the sides and middle of his lower back.

Giving photographers a bemused look as they captured his toned body, he got stuck in jumping into the water and splashing about.

Brad's blonde hair – looking rather long – remained slicked back behind him thanks to the ocean waters.

The Ad Astra actor's tropical trip comes just weeks after he reportedly spent Christmas with daughter Shiloh and twins Knox and Vivienne.

Brad was allowed to spend time with the children on Christmas Eve before they returned to Angelina, 45.

He met with his former wife last November in a last attempt to try and "end the ugliness" of their ongoing feud, which began in 2016.

It came as news emerged the Oscar winner has split with German model Nicole Poturalski, 27, following a three-month romance.

An insider said: “He’s still desperate for all the ugliness to end, even though it’s like pulling teeth seeing eye to eye with Angelina about virtually anything these days.

“Brad’s big concern in all this is making some sort of peace, for the kids’ sakes as well as his and Angelina’s.

“This ugliness has gone on way too long and it’s his greatest wish for them to resolve as much as possible outside of the courtroom.

“Whatever gets decided by the judge, they’ll be co-raising the kids for the rest of their lives.

“He’s willing to be the bigger person, and it’s a positive sign that he’s spending time with Angie again, for sure.”
