Maddox Jolie-Pitt, the oldest child of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, will soon be graduating high school and heading to college, and it looks like he doesn’t want to stay in the United States for his higher education. Is the 17-year-old leaving the country to escape his parents’ vicious divorce battle?
Jolie and Pitt are the adoptive parents of Maddox, who was born in Cambodia. He recently visited colleges in Seoul, South Korea, along with his mom, and insiders say that this devastated Pitt.
“Brad’s been trying to rebuild his relationship with Maddox since his breakup with Angie,” revealed an insider. “But Maddox remains a mama’s boy and simply can’t take the fighting anymore!”

The divorce drama started between Jolie and Pitt after a notorious booze-fueled family fight back in September of 2016 that led to Jolie accusing Pitt of child abuse. According to Radar Online, Maddox reportedly jumped in to defend Jolie during an argument that she was having with Pitt, and that led to an alleged fight between father and son.
Pitt denied Jolie’s allegations and two different government agencies cleared him of any wrongdoing after investigations. But, the day after the fight, Jolie filed for divorce, and insiders say that Pitt still has a frayed relationship with the teenager and therapy isn’t helping.
Sources claim that Pitt has “cleaned up his act” and has put in a lot of hard work to improve things with his oldest son, but Jolie has continued to fight her ex and even attempted to move their six kids to Europe, so she could limit Pitt’s contact.
Both Maddox and his younger brother, Pax, have joined their mom in South Korea on a recent humanitarian trip for the United Nations, and an insider says that Pitt thinks it might be too late to make amends with Maddox. The War Machine actor is apparently terrified that his relationship with his son can never be fixed.
Pitt and Jolie are hopefully nearing the end of their tumultuous divorce battle. The former couple is scheduled to be in court next month to determine the custody of their six children. Pitt has been fighting for 50/50 custody, so he can improve his relationships with his children, but Jolie wants sole custody.
Angelina Jolie’s legal team has given Brad Pitt’s lawyers all of her requested financial information, and now the ball is in Pitt’s court.
