This is so sad. After Brad filed for joint custody of he and Angelina Jolie’s kids, HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY learned, Nov. 7, that the actor and Maddox are especially having a ‘difficult’ time dealing with the family’s situation. Get the ’emotional’ details here.
Brad Pitt‘s, 52, relationship with his adopted son, Maddox, 15, has been anything but close since the actor reportedly got verbally and physically abusive aboard a private plant in Sept. 2016. This alleged incident led to an investigation by the Department of Child and Family Services, which the family is currently in the process of. Angelina Jolie, 41, filed irreconcilable differences from Brad just days before the reported occurrence.
Now, with the family divided and the tension at an all time high, Brad and Maddox are having a tough time. “The divorce has been difficult for all the children but Maddox is having a particularly rough time with his father Brad,” a source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.com. “Maddox is angry and having a hard time understanding everything that is happening and why.”
As for how Brad is doing — “He is frustrated that he can not be present more to help Maddox deal with his emotions, feelings and anger,” the source said. In fact, “The whole situation is difficult for the entire family. This is just devastating.
This comes right after Brad filed for joint custody of he and Angie’s six children — Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins, Vivienne and Knox, 8, Nov. 4. While the two seem to agree that they want what’s best for the children, they are not on the same page, or planet, when it comes to choosing custody of their brood. Brad checked off “joint” legal and physical custody in his official documents, obtained EXCLUSIVELY by us, and Angie checked off “sole” custody in hers.
Right now, the family is still reportedly under the microscope by DCFS, as Brad is being investigated for alleged child abuse. The actor is reportedly able to see his children during monitored visits at this time, and Angie’s apparently not happy about his “joint” custody request. She allegedly wants him to “get his s–t together,” before he can see his kids full time, according to TMZ. We truly hope Brad and Angie can find some way to work this out. We’ll keep you updated as this seems like it’s about to get heated!
