- In a video obtained by In Touch, Maddox Jolie-Pitt answered questions from paparazzi about his family, talking for the first time about his allegedly estranged relationship with his father, Brad Pitt.
- In 2016, it was reported that an altercation between Maddox and Brad while aboard a private jet reportedly led to Angelina Jolie filing for divorce; Maddox and his father have spent little time together since.
- Maddox recently started college at South Korea's Yonsei University; reports said that Brad found out about his son's enrollment through social media.
The Jolie-Pitt clan is famously private about their familial affairs. However, after being mobbed by paparazzi at Yonsei University, Maddox Jolie-Pitt had a few words to say about his relationship with his father, Brad Pitt.
In the video, which was exclusively obtained by In Touch, the pap first asked Maddox whether or not his father would visit him at the South Korea campus. "I don't know about that, what's happening," Maddox replied.
The pap continued to prod, asking the biochemistry student whether his relationship with his father was over. Maddox simply said, "What happens, happens."
Maddox also briefly answered a question about his siblings—Zahara, Pax, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox. When asked if they were happy that he's studying at Yonsei University, Maddox said, "Yeah, I think so."
Ever since an alleged altercation aboard a private jet in 2016, the father-son relationship between Maddox and Brad has reportedly been strained. The incident also reportedly prompted Angelina Jolie to file for divorce from the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood actor.
Brad recently spoke out about getting sober after his divorce from Angelina. In an interview with The New York Times, the actor revealed that he joined an Alcoholics Anonymous group. "I had taken things as far as I could take it, so I removed my drinking privileges," he said. He also spoke about that period in his life, saying, "I had family stuff going on. We’ll leave it at that."
