    Brad Pitt is helping to bring a litle joy to Chris Cornell's children during a tragic time.

    In the wake of the Soundgarden singer's death, Pitt was recently spotted paying a visit to Universal Studios Hollywood with Cornell's kids, daughter Toni, 12, and son Christopher, 11.

    The three were sighted by fellow theme park visitors, who couldn't help but notice the Oscar winner walking around.

    It's been a difficult time for the frontman's family and friends, who are coping with his loss after he was found unresponsive with a band around his neck in the bathroom of his hotel room while on tour in Detroit. He was pronounced dead on the scene. The Wayne County Medical Examiner's Office confirmed to E! News in a statement that a preliminary autopsy had been conducted and Cornell's cause of death was determined as suicide by hanging. A full autopsy and toxicology test results are pending.

    Pitt, a longtime pal of the star, was also present at Cornell's funeral last week. The actor joined fellow celebrity attendees Pharrell Williams, Metallica rockers Lars Ulrich and James Hetfield and Dave Navarro of Jane's Addiction to honor his memory.

    Vicky Cornell, his wife of 13 years, and their children attended wearing traditional black. The rocker is also survived by a 16-year-old daughter, Lilian, from a previous marriage.
