Report: Brad Pitt Finally Reunites with Son Maddox Jolie-Pitt
E! News reports the father and son met face-to-face for the first time in over a month with a therapist present. Sources say Pitt and his son still have work to do on their relationship, butAngelina Jolie wants her family to have both parents in the kids’ lives.
As previously reported, Pitt has seen his kids twice since Jolie filed for divorce, but both times Maddox was a no-show. “He chose not to go and stayed with Angie,” a Jolie confidante told Us Weekly, explaining that the first reunion “wasn’t full of joy and happiness” as Pitt had hoped.
Adopted by Jolie in 2002, two years before she started dating Pitt, Maddox has been siding with this mother amid the divorce. A Jolie insider told Us the teen, whose fight with Pitt aboard of a private jet is now being investigation by the FBI over child abuse claims, “never wants to see Brad again,” adding that Maddox is “close to Angelina” and “never thought of himself as Brad’s son.”
According to the divorce papers filed by the Maleficent actress, she is seeking sole physical custody of Maddox and his five siblings — Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne – with visitation rights for Pitt.
Let’s hope this reported first meeting is a start to mending the relationship.
