Maddox Jolie Pitt is the perfect son who is very present for his mother, Angelina Jolie, during the bitter divorce and custody battle with her estranged husband.
For the past two years, Brad Pitt and Angelina have been going at it both in court and in the public eye, and according to reports, their teen son has been exemplary.
Maddox is brilliant and kind; he happily looks after his siblings — Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 10 — to help out.
A person told Hollywood Life that the actress is close to her son and she has been leaning on him.
The friend said: “Angelina’s relationship with Maddox has never been stronger, they’ve always had a special connection, but since the divorce, their bond has only strengthened. They rely on each other. He’s always been wise beyond his years, but since her split with Brad, he’s proven his maturity and wisdom is much greater than that of the average 17-year-old.”
The pal added: “Maddox has gone above and beyond to help out with the younger kids. He has Angelina’s blessing to do the teenage thing and take off with his friends, but instead, he sticks around to be with her and his brothers and sisters. It’s amazing how selfless he is; he isn’t the average teenager. He’s one of Angeline’s greatest sources of pride and strength; she lights up whenever she talks about him.”
Meanwhile, Jolie is working hard to erase Brad was ever part of her life.
A second source stated: “The days of Angelina missing Brad have well and truly passed, all she wants now is for him to be out of her life, period. Angelina resents having anything to do with Brad and wishes she could forget he even exists, but because of the children she’s not allowed to do that, and he’s going to have to remain a part of her life for at least the foreseeable future. Brad is willing to be pretty reasonable and civil for the sake of the kids, but if anything that infuriates Angelina even more–he really can’t win at this point whatever he does.”
Maddox has a lot of fans.
