So sad! Brad Pitt’s son Maddox isn’t looking to mend fences with his dad anytime soon, and their first and only meeting ended horribly. Keep reading for new details on why their strained relationship isn’t getting any better.
What a mess. While Brad Pitt, 52, has been able to meet with his kids since his dramatic split from Angelina, Jolie, 41, it’s his eldest son Maddox, 15, who wants nothing to do with him. TMZ is reporting that when father and son finally met at a therapist’s office Oct. 19, it was incredibly brief and a total disaster because Maddox, “didn’t want to be there.” Yikes!
It sounds like the teen is still really angry over what went down on the family plane Sept. 15 when he allegedly got between Brad and Angie during a ranging fight and was either physically struck or verbally abused by Brad according to various reports. The incident not only caused Angelina to file for divorce, it spurred a Department of Child and Family Services investigation, putting Brad under the microscope about how he treats his kids.
According to the site, DCFS is digging deeper into other alleged incidents and that, “some of the children have been fearful around Brad.” It’s so devastating that this once picture perfect family is so shattered now. Angelina still has temporary full custody of all six of the kids as the investigation is continuing well past its original Oct. 20 end date. Brad initially reunited with his other five kids, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 8, on Oct. 8, but a therapist held off on having Maddox and his dad meet because they didn’t think he was ready yet. Apparently the teen is still deeply hurt from the incident between him and Brad for their only meeting to have been such a brief one.
