Angelina Jolie won’t reveal which college Maddox will attend this fall

Angelina Jolie exits the Crosby Hotel in NYC with her kids

Previously, we’ve heard that Maddox Jolie-Pitt was looking at various colleges here in America and abroad. I wonder if he’s still dating that girl in England, and if universities like Oxford and Cambridge were on his shortlist? We knew that he was also considering going to college in Cambodia and South Korea too. Well, Angelina Jolie recently confirmed that yes, her baby is going to college but she won’t’ say where:

Angelina Jolie‘s first child is about to leave the nest. The activist and actress, 43, is preparing for her oldest son Maddox, 17, to attend college in the fall — and the mom of six couldn’t be happier for him to take the big step.

“I’m nothing but proud,” Jolie tells PEOPLE in the latest issue. “I look forward to all he will do.”

Though Jolie doesn’t specify where Maddox will be enrolling, the oldest in the Jolie-Pitt clan was seen visiting universities in South Korea with his mom in tow last November. The two visited campuses in Seoul while Jolie was in the country on an official visit as the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugee (UNHCR) Special Envoy.

My bet is that Maddox will go to college in New York. Still in the US, but far away from LA and far away from Brad Pitt. Speaking of, E! News had an interesting summary of where things are between Brad and Angelina, especially considering their divorce STILL hasn’t been finalized. Some highlights:

Brad wasn’t happy with the child custody agreement they worked out in December: “While some progress has been made, this isn’t an ideal situation for Brad,” a second source told us at the time. “There’s an arrangement in place but it’s not a permanent agreement, and there’s a long road ahead….Brad is hoping the worst is behind them and that they can move on from the fighting and painful past. He knows in the long run the kids are best with both their mom and dad in the picture,” the source told us. “He can now move forward and try be a stable and constant positive influence in their lives.”

Brad & Angelina meet weekly with a therapist: “They’ve both decided to try and put their differences aside and to do whatever they can to raise the kids in the healthiest environment possible,” a source tells us, adding that, while they still don’t see eye-to-eye on everything, “they have had to find ways to compromise…. They continue to go to therapy weekly and having a third party watch them interact and provide feedback has been helpful. They both understand that for the kids’ sake they need to be able to come to agreements.”

Brad is willing to compromise: “Brad is doing the best he can to work with her,” the source added. “He just wants to have a relationship with the kids and to make joint decisions on what’s important. He doesn’t want be shut out or shut down. It’s not fair to the kids and they both know that.”

[From E! News]

“Brad is doing the best he can to work with her” – he continues to paint her as the unreasonable one, the one who is spiky and difficult to deal with, and he continues to paint himself as the aggrieved party, the one who was wronged, the one who is only trying to find solutions… to problems which Angelina orchestrated, in his view. How long will he play that tune? When will Angelina be free of his bullsh-t?

    COLLEGE?? OMG I feel so old. So happy shes been able to move forward with all the drama and raise some seemingly well-adjusted children.

    • Greta says:

      It’s Dior- very nice, I need all her coats and bags. I still remember baby Maddox, can’t believe he’s almost 18. The best of luck to him. Angelina must be so happy and should be immensely proud.

      ETA: Not sure how this ended up here sorry, it was meant to be a reply about the coat to Nina Simone.

  2. Nina Simone says:

    I feel so old! What in the world ?? Maddox is already going to college? Props to her for encouraging this. Side note: I need that coat !

  3. Lucia says:

    I was 18 when Angie adopted him. Now he’s all grown!!!

    That said, Angie seems to be getting back on track. I’m glad she’s ignoring the haters.

  4. FluffyPrincess says:

    I remember when she was with Billy Bob Thorton and adopted Maddox — and now college? Wow! Time flies.

  5. Jumpingthesnark says:

    Good for Maddox, I wish all the best fir college! Smart for Angelina to nit reveal the college, it will become public knowledge when he goes, but good to let him enjoy his acceptance privately for a while. Unfortunately, as for dealing with Brads BS, Angie will have to deal with it until the youngest is 18.

  6. Case says:

    Good for her for protecting his privacy. I can’t believe he’s so old!

  7. Tiffany says:

    No, because the photo of AJ and Maddox in the park was just….*counts on fingers*, wow, where is it, time.

  8. minx says:

    He’s already going to COLLEGE??

  9. rose says:

    I don’t think anyone cares to know where her child goes to college?

    • Mia4s says:

      It would be nice if that were true but in reality we know there are a lot of people who want to know. They shouldn’t, but they do.

      I actually hope he does go abroad, maybe somewhere with stricter privacy laws. He deserves as normal an experience as possible.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      yeah, because NO. BODY. cares about Jolie or her kids. /s

      you new here?…

    • Skeptical says:

      “I don’t think anyone cares to know where her child goes to college?”


      • Lady D says:

        If his college leaks before he starts, there will be at least a hundred reporters/photographers waiting for him to appear. Trust, they will care, the pictures will be everywhere.

  10. Lizzie says:

    at this point i think brad is dragging this custody BS on BECAUSE he is saying he wants it but doesn’t really. so the longer it takes to get to an agreement, the longer he can live without the responsibility.

  11. lucy2 says:

    It’s not “ideal” for him? Who cares what’s ideal for Brad? It should be what’s best for the kids, and he just has to suck it up and deal with it.

    I hope that part about her keeping her son’s college private is true, IMO both parents were too open about their kids’ lives growing up, so hopefully he can have some time to adjust to college life before he’s followed by paparazzi.

  12. Beach Dreams says:

    Good for them. It’ll eventually become public so at least until then, they can quietly celebrate and enjoy this milestone in his life.

  13. KidV says:

    This divorce is lasting longer than their actual marriage.

    • crogirl says:

      I wouldn’t be surprised if it takes longer than their entire relationship.

    • Hmmm says:

      The bezos. billionaires are divorced.

      Angie signed over everything necessary for a divorce. The daddy dearest has been stalling.

      His fans say it’s nit because if the make it right foundation lawsuit , but you wonder.

  14. Michelle says:

    Of course Pitt paints himself as the innocent party. We have a sexist & completely biased media that will always paint Angelina as the villain in everything, so he of course will get a free pass.

    • Lucia says:

      I remember reading an article that says someone told Brad that he has difficulty accepting responsibility for his behavior. That is one piece of gossip I’ll always believe. He doesn’t care about the kids, just himself and looking good.

      • Hmmm says:

        If you notice his articles always have to shade Angie. He thinks that’s going to fix things with the kids who so obviously adore their mother? He should take a step back and away from his Pr team and try to get real.

        His career was never going to be ruined but he acted like he thought he was about to lose it all and had to throw not only Angie but the kids under bus early on. By now he should realize he could sign the kids away to angie and the media and his fans would not care.

  15. jules says:

    Love Angie, always so classy. Notice that this is the exact opposite of all those parents posting and boasting online about where their kids got in.

  16. CL says:

    Poor Brad has suffered so much! First the witch stole him from JA, then forced him to adopt those “pr babies”, and tricked him into having some “real” kids. They she held a gun to his head and forced him to become an alcoholic. I just hope he gets what he truly wants, which is the bio kids.
    BP is a crap human and crap father.

  17. Anastasia says:

    Question: were their last names officially changed to Jolie-Pitt on their birth certificate? Or do they just go by Jolie?

    And I also can’t believe he’s going to college. I remember Baby Maddox like it was last week!

    • Hmmm says:

      They are Jolie-Pitts but wouldn’t be surprised if some change that. Then brad and his team will surely blame Angelina when in reality these kids lived with him and know exactly who he is. They chose her.

  18. ad says:

    It seems that the children are well brought up contrary to the nasty comments made by a few haters. She sacrifice a lot for her kids. Her children clearly adores her.

  19. Hmmm says:

    Brad Pitt was not mentioned (by angelina) in the article so he needed to try to put himself in there somehow.

    His kids were in a karate tournament with no paparazzi. My fellow Angelina fans posted photos the parents at karate tournament instagrammed. The girl twin won second place. A big event but daddy dearest was a no show. Just like he’s a no show for Maddox.

  20. Kath says:

    I’m not an Angie stan, but I’ve always thought she did a great job in exposing these kids to a lot of educational opportunities. When they were in Australia, she had an Indigenous artist come and teach the kids about Aboriginal art and culture, and she seems to do stuff like that wherever they go.

    Just the fact that her kid is looking at colleges instead of trying to become a model or “Instagram influencer” says a lot.

    Shame their dad is such a dickhead.

  21. Tai says:

    I really hope Maddax actually stays in college and gets a degree! So many kids of celebrities have the opportunity to go to these great schools, fully paid for by parents, and they bail in the first year (Mary-Kate and Ashley, Brooklyn Beckham, the Lori Loughlin kid). Lori’s kid left/got kicked but I’m sure she would have bailed even without the scandal).

  22. OriginalCarol says:

    One of Jolie’s quotes on having children, ” I believe the only people that should be around a child and raising a child are people who absolutely, 100 percent love that child.”

    This explains a lot why she won’t cave in to Pitt’s demands for a joint custody at his whims until she’s sure the children are safe being around him. And yeah, this divorce is going on for 3 years cause of her ex of a deadbeat who’s so narcissistic and selfish. It’s all about him and heaven forbids if he’s not mentioned in the media as often as it should, lol. . Just like clockwork, whenever there are some positive news about her, he would put out b.s shading stories as if he can’t stand of her having any good news and at the same time to remind folks, don’t forget him, he is still here and very much relevant as if he still is. Not.

  23. serena says:

    I’m curious to know what college Maddox will be goint to, and especially what he will be studying (films or something?). Also, Maddox and Pax are growing up to be two handsome young men!

  24. SJR says:

    Brad Pitt is showing his true self now.
    What a crap excuse for a Father. In his mind, it’s all about him.
    IMO, those kids would be just fine without him in their lives.

    Respect to Angelina, she really is doing the heavy lifting, she is working to provide a sense of safety and family for those kids.

    As for Brad..go away. I don’t spend my $$ to see Pitt, and I don’t spend my $$ to see anything with Tom Cruise in it either. Pitts movie career is over. He may still work as a producer but, his days as the golden boy/heartthrob are behind him.

  25. Meg says:

    Trying his best to work with her? God hes awful. Some relationships run their course and end but you dont regret it, if kids werent involved do u think angie would go back and run far far from brad?
