Angelina Jolie is reportedly using son Maddox to 'stir things up' amid divorce proceedings with Brad Pitt
A recent interview given by Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's son Maddox seems to reveal that Jolie is using her son against her ex, according to Hollywood insiders. Maddox, who recently enrolled at the Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea, was seen giving a candid interview to a cameraman/ reporter who showed up on the campus last week, and from the nature of his answers about Pitt quite a few industry insiders are convinced that Jolie is influencing her son.
Jolie and Pitt are embroiled in divorce proceedings and custody of their children. According to the interview produced by Coleman-Rayner, Maddox seemed very open about his life when he was approached by the reporter.
When he was asked whether Pitt would come to the campus to visit him, he responded by saying, "Um, I don’t know about that … what’s happening [with that]." He also commented on whether their relationship was over for good and said, "Whatever happens, happens."
As reported by Page Six, an insider revealed that Maddox had even seemed prepared for the interview. The insider added that Maddox did not try to get rid off the interviewer.
"So people in the industry think maybe it’s an effort by Jolie’s camp to stir things up, even though things have been relatively calm," the source shared. The freshman, however, said on a happier note that he is performing "very good" at school and that he is staying in a dorm room. According to him, he is now focusing on learning to speak Korean and does not see himself clubbing anytime soon.
Jolie had adopted Maddox before she had met Pitt and then the couple ended up adopting two children together and also had three biological children. Another source claimed that Maddox and Pitt have a very "limited relationship". They have reportedly had a very strained relationship since they had a fight aboard a private jet before Jolie filed for divorce in 2016.
An insider was also asked about the state of divorce which is still ongoing to which the insider shared that it was all the same and nothing had changed. Pitt is currently promoting his new film titled 'Ad Astra' in Tokyo, Japan.
