Maddox Jolie-Pitt is not happy with his mom, Angelina Jolie, after she visited the grave of Pol Pot – the murderous dictator responsible for killing 3 million Cambodians – and now he has defiantly demanded to live with his dad, Brad Pitt. Sources say that after he found out about his mother’s visit, the Cambodian-born Jolie Pitt immediately called his dad and begged to live with him.
Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge party ruled Cambodia from 1975 to 1979 and slaughtered millions through starvation, work camps, and mass executions on the notorious “killing fields.” Locals say that Jolie has visited the grave multiple times, the first being in 1998, and then again in 2001 during the trip where she adopted Maddox.

“Brad tried to soothe him, saying Angie is interested in the history of the country where she found Maddox,” reveals an insider. “He also explained that he needs to be careful while the pair’s lawyers work out custody of all their kids — and to hold tight until he could speak with her about it.”
Ironically, it was Maddox who got into a physical confrontation with Pitt back in September 2016 during that infamous flight that led to the couple’s split. Jolie claimed this was evidence of Pitt’s abusive behavior towards their six children.
But now, according to Radar Online, the 16-year-old understands that his mom’s behavior ignited problems in their family, and it is the 42-year-old actress who is the instigator of many of their family woes.
The fact that Jolie visits the warlord’s resting place is “galling” to Maddox, according to insiders, and he doesn’t understand how she could save him from such an evil place and then return to it like it is a shrine. But, whether Maddox winds up with Pitt is still in question.
Pitt and Jolie are still in the middle of hashing out a custody agreement and divorce settlement, but a year and a half after their split, Pitt is happy again and in “high spirits.” After taking time to focus on himself, the 54-year-old has slowly made his way back into the spotlight and is currently dating Neri Oxman, who is a professor of media arts and sciences at the MIT Media Lab.

His separation from Jolie was a sad and shocking situation for Pitt, but he has started taking
“Separating was very sad and shocking to him, but he started taking care of himself again,” says an insider. “He seems much, much happier.”
Pitt met Oxman through an architecture project at MIT last fall, and since then he has been making regular trips to the east coast to spend time with the new woman in his life.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have not commented on the rumors surrounding Maddox Jolie-Pitt.
