                            The rumors are not true: Maddox Jolie-Pitt has no problems with being in Hollywood's spotlight

What's this we hear about young Maddox Jolie-Pitt rejecting the spotlight? According to a slew of reports, the 16-year-old apparently hates Hollywood. A 'source' apparently mentioned it to Life & Style, the young man "is rejecting the spotlight and does not want to follow in his famous parents' footsteps."

The source also said, "Maddox hates the glitz and glamour that comes with being a Hollywood star."

"He doesn’t really like attending any kind of showbiz event. He’ll make a brief appearance if he has to, but celeb events aren’t his thing," said the source.

The gossip piece even suggested that Maddox doesn't like the spotlight, unlike his famous parents. "He finds it all pretentious, Maddox wants to lead as normal a life as possible," the 'insider' apparently said.

So are the rumors about Maddox true? Gossip Cop has confirmed that it's fabricated, and the news cannot be trusted. The news broke down the rumors and proved to readers and the Jolie clan fans that Maddox has no qualms about being in the spotlight.

Here are the rumors they've squashed:

1. Maddox isn't hiding from the spotlight. In fact, the young man has attended many film festivals over the past few months, promoting Angelina's new Netflix movie First They Killed My Father.

2. Maddox hasn't shied away from Hollywood and served as an executive producer on Angelina's film on the Cambodian genocide.

The rumors have risen in the light of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's divorce. The two actors are still tangled in court over custody of their children and have been the topic of discussion for a long time. Many gossip sites have played devil's advocate by spreading false news about the family's strife.
