Uh oh! Maddox Jolie-Pitt has allegedly taken his mom Angelina’s side in her nasty divorce from Brad Pitt, and that could totally affect how his siblings see their parents. HollywoodLife.com has spoke to an expert EXCLUSIVELY about whether or not he could turn his brother and sisters against their father.
“Maddox may definitely influence the other children, but he still has a right to his feelings to do what he needs to do to feel some sense of safety and comfort in his own life,” family therapist Dr. Deborah Sweet, tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. A bombshell report in Us Weekly said that the 15-year-old has already chosen sides in Brad Pitt, 52, and Angelina Jolie‘s divorce and he’s totally in his mom’s corner. “Maddox never wants to see Brad again,” their source shared, while his five brothers and sisters have visited with their dad.
According to Dr. Sweet, Mad’s anger towards Brad right now is totally normal.”This is typical behavior for a teen, research would show that this is common with teenagers. Brad gets angry and they are in the middle of a divorce? Yeah, that is a pretty good recipe for a child to be angry.”
Brad’s behavior towards Maddox on a flight from France to L.A. allegedly sparked Angie to file for divorce from him and also caused the actor become the subject of a Child Protective Services investigation. The couple was reportedly in the middle of a huge fight when Mad allegedly jumped in to defend his mom and something went horribly wrong. It looks like that strain has continued since Angie’s bombshell filing Sept. 19.
Dr. Sweet assures us that the strain between father and son likely won’t last too long. “This does not have to ruin the relationship between Brad and Maddox and likely is just a phase. But there must be repair in the relationship, and the repair needs to happen between the two of them, Brad and Maddox. And the repair would be facilitated by Brad taking steps, going to therapy to better himself.”
