During her 25-year movie career that has seen her produce, direct, and star in multiple films, Angelina Jolie has amassed a huge fortune, including a company that is worth $116 million. And, according to a new report, the Oscar-winning actress has decided to leave it to her oldest son, Maddox.
Radar Online is reporting that Jolie has cut five of her six children out of her business, and will leave her production company, Jolie Pas, to the 17-year-old “golden boy,” while ignoring Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox.

An insider claims that Brad Pitt is angry about Jolie’s surprising gesture.
“Brad is in an absolute fury and fit to be tied over Angie’s moves!” revealed the source. “It finally seemed like they were reaching some kind of compromise with the divorce. But he’s been blindsided by this mess over Maddox!”
Even though their divorce has not been settled, Jolie and Pitt are legally single again – and Jolie has her name back – after the judge in their case granted a bifurcation. This means that they are now legally divorced even though Jolie and Pitt are still working out the details of their split.
In the past five years, Jolie Pas has produced films like the Oscar-nominated Unbroken and the 2015 flop By The Sea that starred Jolie and Pitt, and those movies have grossed more than $100 million at the box office.
Nang Lay, a member of the Cambodian Buddhist Temple of Long Beach, says that Maddox will take care of Jolie’s company because the Tomb Raider star wants to hand down her business to him. Jolie and the kids have been regular visitors of the temple over the past two years.
Maddox received his first executive producer credit when he was just 15 years old for the film First They Killed My Father, which was about the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia. Nang says that Maddox is smart, and he is currently learning all he needs to know to run Jolie’s business.

However, Pitt reportedly sees this as a spiteful move, and Jolie is adding salt to the wound after Maddox took his mom’s side in the divorce.
An insider says that Jolie has been having health issues lately, which is another reason she has started to rely more on her oldest son. Multiple reports have claimed Angelina Jolie is struggling with her weight – with one saying she weighs 92 pounds – and she forgets to eat because she is overwhelmed by her career and her kids.
Jolie will return to the big screen this fall in Maleficent 2.
