Two months since the tragic loss, the actor is now worried about the rocker's children as "bloody" photos from the suicide scene are made public.

The pictures were released along with the police report on 11 July with the cause of death determined to be hanging by suicide.

Apart from images of the hotel room, the released material also showed personal items like an acoustic guitar on a brown sofa and the exercise band used by the rocker to hang himself.

"Brad saw the bloody pics of Chris' room after his suicide and it was really painful," a source was quoted as saying by HollywoodLife. "He's still so, so sad about his friend's death."

But the 53-year-old actor is more concerned for the late Soundgarden rocker's family – wife Vicky Karayiannis and their three children - Lillian Cornell, 17, Toni Cornell, 12, and Christopher Cornell, 11. "It breaks his heart that they have to see those pics, the gossip website's source said.

Since the tragic passing of the singer at age 52, Pitt has been there for his friend's family. He and two of Cornell's children were even spotted taking some time out at the Los Angeles theme park, just weeks after the death.

"[Pitt's] such a good friend and always reaches out to those kids to let them know he's there for them if they need anything at all," the website added.
