Brad Pitt thinks Angelina Jolie was trying to ‘stir things up’ with Maddox’s interview


Brad Pitt on arrival at Tokyo Narita Airport.

This week, we discussed the “interview” with Maddox Jolie-Pitt while he was apparently on campus at Yonsei University in South Korea. I watched the video – it looked like a TMZ-style video-paparazzo bum-rushed Maddox as he came out of a university building. Maddox answered some questions about his family as vaguely as possible, and when he was asked if Brad Pitt would come to visit, Maddox said “Um, I don’t know about that … what’s happening,” and ”whatever happens, happens.” Honestly, for all of my anger that a paparazzo got onto campus, Maddox handled the whole thing like a pro. He’s 18 years old, still a kid, but well old enough to make his own decisions about whom he speaks to and what he says to journalists. But according to Team Brad, Maddox’s interview was indicative of… Angelina Jolie being a bitch.

Hollywood insiders think that a recent interview with Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s oldest son, Maddox Jolie-Pitt, is proof that Jolie, 44, is using the youngster to take digs at her ex amid a still-unresolved divorce. Maddox, who just started at Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea, seemed surprisingly forthcoming about his tumultuous private life when confronted by a camera-wielding reporter who turned up on campus last week.

Asked if Pitt, 55, would come to visit him in his new dorm, Maddox replied, “Um, I don’t know about that … what’s happening [with that].” The college freshman also commented on whether or not their relationship is over for good. “Whatever happens, happens,” he said.

He seemed good-natured as he answered questions in the interview, which was produced by Coleman-Rayner, the news agency that famously set up photos with Meghan Markle’s dad, Thomas.

“Maddox seemed prepared for the interview,” said a suspicious insider. “He wasn’t trying to fend off the interviewer — so people in the industry think maybe it’s an effort by Jolie’s camp to stir things up, even though things have been relatively calm.”

Another source told Page Six that Pitt and Maddox have a “very limited relationship.” They are widely reported to have a strained relationship since having a fight aboard a private jet shortly before Jolie filed for divorce in 2016. Asked about the state of the divorce, which is still pending, a source close to the couple replied: “It’s the same — nothing has changed.”

So… Team Brad seems to think that Maddox and Angelina worked together to organize this fake “interview” by a Coleman-Rayner video-paparazzo and the purpose of it was to… make Brad look bad? Honestly, Brad looked bad enough – Angelina dropped Maddox off by herself. Brad made zero effort to reconcile with Maddox before Maddox went to college. In the past three years, the court determined that Maddox could make his own decisions about visiting Brad, and Maddox chose not to visit. What could have been a story about an estrangement between a father and son has turned into “oh, it’s all the Villainous Jolie’s fault!” Honestly, if Brad just kept his mouth shut and stopped trying to smear his ex-wife, I might give him a little bit of respect for honoring the boundaries Maddox has obviously set up.

    Oh what garbage! And if the poor kid had told the photographer to f**k off or took a swing at him the story would be “Maddox unstable under mother’s influence!”. Garbage.

    I hope she DID fully train him (or have PR people do it). For famous parents, I think it’s a kindness you give your kids. I hope Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner’s and Halle Berry’s and all those kids are given the tools they need.

    • Sarah says:

      Appears to me that he has been “trained” to be a polite discrete young man.

      • Tootsie45 says:

        Right? My only thought after watching that video is “damn, he seems like a freakily well adjusted/pleasant/gracious teenager.”

    • terra says:

      Precisely, ITA.

      Plus, if Brad really wants a relationship with his eldest sons, then perhaps he should consider ceasing to smear their mother in the press at every opportunity.

      • Ad says:

        He gives me the impression that the adopted children do not matters to him that much or not at all. He appears relieved without the children. He seems very happy without a family, freelifestyle not committed or tied to anyone he does,goes as he pleased. Angelina is far much better off without him, just the children to concentrate on & of course herself.

    • otaku fairy.... says:

      Plus it could have been used as ammunition for people to make whatever happened on the plane Not Brad’s Fault.

  2. Mignionette says:

    Lol – Maybe its time Brad realised not everything is about him. But the projection is interesting…

  3. Chisey says:

    I feel like if the interview was intended as some kind of smear of Brad Pitt, Maddox would say something more incendiary than ‘I don’t know’ and ‘whatever happens happens’

    • Murphy says:

      Yeah you’d think Brad would be pleased with what he said, he hasn’t completely shut the door….but with continued behavior like this Brad, he might some day.

    • Annie says:

      Right? I read that as surprisingly anodyne after the gossip about Maddox being really closed off to Brad. The mellowness seemed to strike a note of optimism about their future. The ‘suspicious insider’ ain’t doing Team Brad any favors by responding this way.

      Brad also seems to be in a really weird place style-wise.

  4. ByTheSea says:

    I don’t see anything bad in the interview. If he’d said “no” or “honestly, I don’t want him here” to the question of whether his dad was going to visit, then, yeah, that would be bad. This is just a non-committal answer.

    “Brad made zero effort to reconcile with Maddox before Maddox went to college.” How do we know this? As the mom of a teenager, I know they are as stubborn as mules. Neither Angelina nor Brad would be able to force Maddox to speak to/see Brad if he didn’t want to.

  5. Lisa says:

    I thought Maddox handled the ambush well.

    • Carol says:

      Right? It’s a total ambush.

      I think it’s awful that this paparazzi harassed Maddox at his college and I also think it’s just as awful how media outlets are treating this as an “interview.” It is not an interview. The story shouldn’t be whether Brad is an awful person or not but rather how this paparazzi was able to ambush this celebrity kid at his college campus. Maddox is not some social media influencer who is trying to get press attention. I know this is a gossip site. I get it. But let’s try to keep celebrity kids out of the stories.

  6. Mira says:

    “Maddox — seemed surprisingly forthcoming about his tumultuous private life”

    Maddox: “Whatever happens, happens.”

    The new definition of surprisingly forthcoming.

  7. roseplot says:

    Lord, the young man is just 1 out of the 6 kids so I guess if the other 5 ever say something about him it’s due to the villainous Jolie. This guy is delusional!

    • Sidewithkids says:

      This.

      The point is BP constantly tries to smear Angelina. She somewhere minding her business and every time something happens this dude doesn’t like b/c it’s clear he has a guilty conscience and is nervous the truth is gonna come out, runs to his people over at CAA (the same people who worked w/ Harvey Weinstein to cover up his lies btw) who then runs to Page Six to lie and blame Angie and her kids. This is Rinse and Repeat w/ him. He’s totally delusional and lame and the only reason he gets away w/ all of this is b/c he is a rich white man.

      • Amy Too says:

        I also noticed how Team Brad is reframing what happened on the plane as Brad and Maddox “had a fight.” If Maddox is 18 now, he was 15 or 16 then. An adult father does not “have a fight” with their teenage boy… it’s called “child abuse,” or “assaulting a minor.” “They had a fight,” makes it seem like they had equal status and were equally to blame. That’s not how it works if you have a parent/child relationship. That’s not how it works even if you’re just a random adult man who is mad at a teenage boy.

      • Kosmos says:

        I don’t feel that Brad is trying to smear her at all–he’s just trying to navigate around the situation that she controls. I’m all for Brad. He paid his dues, he’s not perfect, but Angie to me is vindictive and has always seemed to make thing more difficult than they need to be. I do not feel that Brad has made zero effort at anything. We do not know either of them, so all of this is questionable, but I tend 100% to side with Brad, not Angie the troublemaker.

      • lou says:

        Kosmos: you side with Brad 100%? Really? Even though his own son doesnt’ want to see him? Could you find an example of him defending his children at any point over the past few years? Coz I can’t.

        But sure, Angelina’s the ‘vindictive’ one. Holy misogyny, Batman.

  8. Lenn says:

    How do you know he made zero effort to reconcile? What do you base this on? Curious

    • Myrtle says:

      We don’t know this for sure; it’s an assumption. What we DO know for sure is each time an article like this comes out, Brad hasn’t publicly said anything to refute it, to defend/express devotion towards his children, or to defend/speak well of—in any way—their mother, Angelina, who clearly seems to be doing a kick-ass job of raising those 6 kids, with or without him.

      • Yvette says:

        @Myrtle … but all that says to me is that he’s protecting their privacy–Angelina’s and the kids. If he was constantly responding to these articles people would accuse him of trying to gain sympathy or of playing the victim.

      • Lady D says:

        Far better he never defend his family than be accused of wanting sympathy? Brave of him.

      • Myrtle says:

        @Yvette, I agree, of course no celebrity should respond to every tabloid article that pops up about them! But at least when Brad gives an interview and his personal life comes up, that would be the moment to say something positive, devoted or respectful, right?

        In her very first interview after the split, Angelina said: “We are a family…we will always be a family.” Haven’t heard anything close to that from Brad. In his post-split interviews, he likes to make his drinking problem seem edgy (“I could drink a Russian under the table with his own vodka”, “I took it as far as I could go, so I removed my drinking privileges”). How about: “I made some terrible mistakes and lost my family as a result. Thank god my kids have such a wonderful mother and are doing so well, because they mean the world to me.”

  9. Sierra says:

    Of course he does, Brad’s biggest fear is Angelina & Maddox telling the world the truth. Hence Brad’s smearing of them in the media.

    • Sidewithkids says:

      Plus, Maddox isn’t even the problem. Pax is. Lol. Pax the one gonna spill it all b/c I believe that’s the one that can’t really stand BP and what he did to Angie and his siblings. Rightfully so tho. You protect your family. BP could learn a lot from Maddox and Pax.

      • Tashafromtheblock says:

        This

        I agree. Pax never seemed to be as close to BP. If its gonna come out I wouldn’t be surprised if was the voice. On the other side he seems to be close with his mom. Always smiling or laughing with her. Could be the case that all the kids will stay silent in respect of there mother. Only time will tell.

  10. smcollins says:

    Seriously? Anyone who believes that Brad thinks that this young man being ambushed on his college campus was somehow orchestrated by Angelina to make him look bad, well….there’s no cure for that level of gullibility. 🤦🏻‍♀️

  11. Sidewithkids says:

    Does Maddox really strike you as stubborn as a mule? Lol. No. He doesn’t. From everything that we kinda pick up on. Recently, from both vids of him and Angie at the college and the vid where he talks to the guy, he seems to be shy, polite and mannerable young man.

    If BP who is suppose to be man, a father, honestly and rationally approached Maddox and tried to reconcile w/ him not for himself but b/c he really wanted his son in his life, you don’t think Maddox would be in his life right now? Come on, get real, this kid would be in a heartbeat but BP has not done that.

    Also, why would you want to be in anyone’s life that smears and defames your mother and your siblings. I know I wouldn’t, would any of you?

    I just don’t understand why people keep trying to rationalize BP’s despeciable behavior and turn it on Maddox. That’s sick to me. BP is not right in this and he continues to show it. Maya Angelou said it when someone shows you who they are, believe it.

  12. Raina says:

    Um. I think the bottom feeders just sent reporters out to Maddox knowing there’s no security or parents around him and the kid just tried to shrug them off and move on. Nothing to do with either parent in my opinion. Not seeing the story.

    • nora lee says:

      That is pretty much what happened. The school allowed media to attend the orientation on the 26th of August someone caught him on his way out. The other students took up for him. There hasn’t been anymore photos or videos since that first day.

    • Jules says:

      Agreed. It would not benefit Brad to comment on this, the media just took advantage and found a chance to turn this into a story.

  13. Original T.C. says:

    Gees give it a rest bitchy team Brad. I guess we now know who was responsible for the Angie vs Poor Jen ongoing tabloid wars with Jen Aniston and her PR guy all those years!

  14. Jen says:

    Did Brad even adopt him? I know Angelina adopted him well before she married Brad. I think he handled it very well and the “forthcoming” assessment is laughable at best.

  15. M says:

    Angelina is currently filming The Eternals in London & raising her other five children. Think she’s too busy to send a reporter to South Korea to ask Maddox a question.
    Everyone knows Maddox hasn’t wanted anything to do with Pitt in 3 years, so what would be the point?

  16. Dizzy says:

    He’s a private citizen and not an actor. His parents should have protected his identity but they didn’t. He’s been paraded around his whole life for cheap publicity. This is why some actors never announce the birth of their children or their names. It’s not our business. I feel sorry for him.

    • Myrtle says:

      Maddox hasn’t been paraded around, nor the other children. The family takes a plane somewhere, paparazzi are at the airport. Not their fault. This family has been living their life. Sometimes their life includes trips to the pet store, sometimes it’s movie premiers where I bet they all have a lot of fun. Would you prefer they stay locked in the house?

      • Kebbie says:

        His privacy could have been much more protected. Most celebrities don’t take their kids on red carpets. The Jolie-Pitt’s always have. It’s possible it doesn’t even bother him. If that’s the case, then it’s not a big deal. He doesn’t seem as sensitive to it as their youngest girl.

      • Isnotafanofanything says:

        I think they have always been paraded around. But, I do believe that was a case of “see them now” and leave us alone the rest of the time. I also think that the D&DoS should have taken that approach with Archie (sorry, but I really dislike that name). Pictures here and there, then nothing the rest of the time.

  17. Paisley says:

    Does anyone know what the hold up to the divorce is? You’d think by now both parties would want it over with and to move on with their lives.

    • Myrtle says:

      I’m going to guess money.

    • CairinaCat says:

      It takes FOREVER in California to get a divorce.
      Mine took two years and my sister currently divorcing is going on THREE years.
      And her is a total uncontested divorce, he didn’t even respond to the initial papers.
      Three years for a uncontested, divorce.

  18. Jessica says:

    What an asshole.

    I will always believe he said something on that plane that was unforgivable. I don’t think it was a case of slapping/shoving/punching Maddox or whatever else has been speculated (which would be plenty bad enough). I think he said something you can’t take back, maybe about him being adopted etc.

    Brad lost his family and he’s never behaved like he cares about anything but his own ego and image. Whether you like Angie or not, she always has and always will put her children first.

    • Truth hurts says:

      You are absolutely right.

    • Ad says:

      @smcollins agree with you 100% , I am sure it’s him who created this for Angelina to really look bad. He is a complete idiot. Right from the start Angie was telling the truth! I have no doubt that he verbally abused those two eldest which resulted of not wanting to do with him & have been relieved when their mother decided to divorce him

      • smcollins says:

        @AD I wasn’t trying to imply that. I honestly don’t think either side had a hand in this in any way. Like another commenter said, just bottom-feeder paparazzi ambushing a young man while he’s just trying to live his life & go to school, in an attempt to get some kind of “exclusive first interview.” Extremely low-class and shameful on their part (the paparazzi), not to mention all the other outlets that have picked it up and added their own spin to it (like this b.s. story being talked about here).

    • Ad says:

      @Jessica, yes I agree, I believed all the time not only physical abuse but verbal & emotional was a recurrent occurrence when living with him. I feel for those boys. He is a cold blooded guy who only care for his image, nevermind I hope those boys will do well in life with the guidance of their mother.

      • Kebbie says:

        Are you saying you think physical abuse was recurrent? I don’t think Angelina would put up with that. I think the second it got physical, she left him.

      • Isnotafanofanything says:

        Then Angie was lying all those times she said he was a great dad? I really don’t think there was what you said: recurrent. Nope, don’t think so.

      • Sophia’s Sideye says:

        @Isnotafanofanything
        Very few people go around telling strangers what’s truly going on in their relationship but most especially when their relationship is struggling. We’ve all had that friend on social media who overshares and overcompensates when talking about their relationship. And most can agree that the more they put in a show, the more likely the relationship is not what is being portrayed. I imagine it’s far worse when you add a big dose of fame. Also, people can change, what’s true now may not be in the future.

        I have lied to myself and others when there were things I wasn’t ready to even admit to myself. It’s human, is all I’m saying.

  19. lucy2 says:

    I hate the way the tabloids keep writing about this. The other day it said he “opened up” and was “revealing”, this says “surprisingly forthcoming” and called it an “interview”.
    The kid was ambushed, and gave as vague an answer as he could.
    Leave him alone.

    Also this “industry insiders” (aka Pitt’s team) is disgusting in their accusation.

  20. Truth hurts says:

    He needs to sit and stfu. Maddox if he did say has every right. People have their mouths all on him and his mom so it’s fair game.

  21. Dulce says:

    In the past, there was a leak from the therapists that Brad Pitt NEVER accepts responsibility for HIS actions and blames everyone except him for HIS mistakes!! Now more than ever… I believe this information!! Yes, it’s sad and pathetic how this coward blames everything on Angelina!! No wonder, his kids don’t want to see him!! Stupid coward Brad Pitt turns out to be!!! 😕

    • Eve says:

      @Dulce:

      A narcissist like that can NEVER accept responsabilities. And Pitt is one of the highest order.

      My guess is that he will NEVER get over the fact he was dumped. Remember, before Angelina Jolie he had always been the “dumper”, not the “dumpee”.

      I used to say that there’s something off about him. Turns out it’s much, much worse than I thought.

    • Senator Fan says:

      Can you provide a link or source for this? If there was a leak to the media from a therapist, that therapist would lose their license to practice.

  22. Eve says:

    “Honestly, if Brad just kept his mouth shut and stopped trying to smear his ex-wife, I might give him a little bit of respect for honoring the boundaries Maddox has obviously set up.”

    He (allegedly) beat the kid, do you really expect him to give a sh*t about boundaries set by anyone but himself?

    • Senator Fan says:

      We don’t know what went down on that plane. But we know Angie filed for divorce soon after. I don’t think he allegedly beat him as you state as he was investigated by two different agencies and no criminal charges were filed and he was cleared.

      • Hmmm says:

        I really hope now that deadbeat is using his Pr tactics to not only discredit Angie but to also discredit Maddox that Maddox makes a statement. Enough already.

        He is using Lisa blooms tactics that she offered up to Harvey Weinstein
        .

      • Hmmm says:

        Yeah he was so cleared that he had to do AA FOR ALMOST TWO YEARS and those kids were in trauma and other types of therapy for just as long. cleared my behind. And he still doesn’t have custody.

        His fans need to give it up and be honest about their idol. He’s a pos and a deadbeat father.

    • Mav says:

      FBI and child protective services both cleared him. I think his biggest “crime”was being inebriated around the kids and I do think he shoved Maddox but didn’t abuse him. I don’t care what he’s like as a father and I don’t care what Jolie is like as a mother – that’s all irrelevant to their films. The Brange thing was all an illusion and PR. Worst than the Kardashians in trying to sell their private family life – at least the Kardashians don’t pretend they don’t.

  23. Hmmm says:

    Deadbeat has skipped so many milestones in all 6 kids lives. Even his fans BELOVED Shiloh. He’s skipped her 13th but I guess that made him look good.

    Matthew hiltzik and CAA have been attacking Angie since she dumped him. Now they have radar disgustingly attacking Maddox.

  24. serena says:

    Man, he’s so pathetic, I’m so over him and his lies. Maddox is obviously an intelligent boy and knows how to deal with paparazzi in a calm way because he was surrounded by them since he got adopted..(and I’m sure both Pitt and Jolie told the kids how to deal with them since they were young). So, wtf?
    This is offensive not only for Angelina but for Maddox too, he can and did make his own decision about not having contact with Brad and I’m sure his mom didn’t have a say in that. F** off Brad.

    Also, I can’t believe they followed him all the way to Seoul.. poor kid.

  25. Candikat says:

    What? No way. That kid was totally chill, only got a little tense when asked about Brad. It shouldn’t have happened, it was an egregious invasion of his space, but his general “yeah whatever I’m just a freshman” vibe tells me that 1) He’s a good-natured kid (speaks volumes about solid early upbringing) and 2) This video was not contrived by any “team” as propaganda.

  26. kerwood says:

    I really hope that these ‘Hollywood sources’ have nothing to do with Brad Pitt. Because if this statement comes from someone associated with Pitt, it’s clear that he doesn’t want anything to do with his children, and that he has a serious beef with Maddox.

    Angelina Jolie is the mother of his children. Attacking her is attacking his children. Whatever went down between them should stay BETWEEN THEM. I haven’t heard Jolie say a word about Pitt for years. Why is he so unable to move on?

    My understanding was that one of the 12 steps of AA was to take responsibility for the pain you caused when you were drinking. Alcoholism is a disease and if Brad Pitt was an alcoholic he was a sick man. If he’s trying to get well, God bless. But he can’t say he’s ‘recovered’ if he’s pulling this shit. He needs to put the feelings of his children first, ESPECIALLY if he hasn’t done so in the past.

    I remember so many articles where Pitt said that it didn’t matter that Maddox wasn’t genetically his son, he was his BLOOD. I always thought that was beautiful. If Pitt is using his BLOOD to score tabloid points with a public that doesn’t really give a fuck about him, then he’s still a very, VERY sick man.

    • Hmmm says:

      Believe it. He is now going to pool parties with people who have attacked her for every thing even her double mastectomies and Angelina stayed silent while Pitt did nothing to defend her against his good friend Melissa. It’s really gross, actually.

      Next up , we’ll see him hanging out with Chelsea Handler. Meanwhile Angelina will continue to ignore him. I’m sure it hurts knowing that someone she once loved and thought loved her and her kids is acting in such a way to save his image but she’s most likely use to it since he did the same when they were together 🤷🏽‍♀️

    • Kebbie says:

      I really think this is more about Page Six and their longstanding vendetta against Angelina. Anything negative they can accuse her of, they will.

  27. JanetFerber says:

    Brad is a faded beauty and is bitter about it. Thus, all the fame-whoring with the Kardashians and this. He had a really good run, decades, because of his hotness and minimal acting skills, a much better deal than a woman star would have gotten. Just STFU Brad. Live your life outside of the spotlight.

  28. JoJo says:

    He didn’t say anything bad about Brad.

  29. Mav says:

    Don’t care for either Jolie or Pitt but this is obviously a prearranged thing. He talked with the “journalist” for, what, a minute and a half. He’s never done that before and he’d have had plenty of opportunities growing up in the US etc. His mother did all kinds of non-official news releases about Maddox getting into college and sending him off, and all of these looked “spontaneous” but you know they never are with big stars who are super conscious of PR like Jolie.

    • Truth hurts says:

      That boy looked caught off guard at first when the so called journalist rolled up. Do you honestly think Angelina would tell a rag to ambush her beloved son just to say ummm really nothing nasty about his daddy. Hell he could do that all on his own with his friend on social media from a dorm room. That is pathetic. Do you think Angelina gives a damn about Brad?

  30. andrea says:

    Warum dieser Hass? Du kannst immer nur vermuten, was dort hinter den Kulissen passiert!? Oder?

  31. Ain’tNoTelling says:

    Guys, no way in hell did any of this stuff come from Pitt or his camp. The man has been addicted to something, booze, pot, etc, most of his life. It’s obvious that he hurt his family as a result of this, & it’s also obvious that he loves them. Not making it for a birthday on the very day is not an indication of his remorse for hurting them, or of the sincerity of him making amends after getting straight & sincerely re establishing a relationship with them and their mother, which by all accounts, he has been doing consistently.

    Hollywood is a small town. Word gets around quickly, & by all accounts, he’s turned it around & they’re all moving forward together. This dude’s not the monster everyone here is painting him out to be, nor is his wife. She saved his life by doing what she had to do, & he’s acutely aware of that. Unlike a majority of addicts, he has taken his recovery seriously & is on the right track.

    Don’t believe everything you read. It’s all BS & conjecture.

    • Lowrider says:

      I don’t know…His PR team seems on edge anytime Angelina speaks. He should just fess up to his behaviour rather than let his kid be blamed for the incident.

  32. sue denim says:

    did anyone see the hagiographic piece in the NYT on him, and all of the comments as if he’s still a god, a hero for overcoming his demons, but no mention of the impact on his kids etc. Also, not to whatabout this but in contrast to how everyone’s gone after Felicity Huffman, it’s just still such a bro’s world…

    • truthhurts says:

      ROTFL. I choose to believe that these are his fans and PR reps interns flowing across the internet planting these seeds in weak minds of people.You are talking about a society that elected Donald Trump for President and are in the throws of ignorance. I don’t expect much from them or the pricks in HW. This is what makes him happy. He doesn’t have anything else, he has this so called architectural hobby and passion. He evidently hasn’t found the remedy to seal the relationship with his kids. How do we know that its only Maddox who feels this way.
      This man has said absoulutely nothing about his kids in interviews he’s peddled since July. Its all about his newly found sobriety(LOOKS) and his, idk wtf he talks about really. His PR team is focused too much on Angelina.

  33. Shannon says:

    How is that even a smear? The kid just said, “I don’t know,” and “Whatever happens happens.” That sounds like both of my sons on any given day about any given subject.

  34. Ellis says:

    Speaking of “stirring things up”, because of the coming of “Ad Astra”, Pitt’s name is all over the media place. All spun sugar and chuckles of course. I choose to believe neither parent would send the leeches to their son to disrupt his important time of learning and growth. But, apparently, it presented an opportunity that shouldn’t have been turned into one, for this “look at me”, B.S. response from Pitt. I’m sure his publicity firm is tallying all the positive and negative responses across all social media platforms, calculating his Oscar-run odds. All publicity is good publicity. Ick.

      Agree, maybe it’s a ploy from both of them neither denied. To my obsevation, When Jolie was promoting FTKMF a news came out that they were reuniting back, when Pitt was promoting OUATH, news came out that Jolie has offered Pitt to look after their children while she works in Mexico & now this so called interview with Maddox news just in time to promote ad Astra.
      They might have agreed to support each other in promoting their movies!

    In other words, Angelina Jolie made sure her oldest son was prepared to handle a surprise paparazzo visit without getting upset and giving the little turd a reaction shot that would end up on the front page of every rag. And Brad wasn’t there to help Maddox prepare for that because Brad blew up his family and chooses to blame his ex for his behavior. Eff off with that noise.
