BRAD Pitt’s son Maddox Jolie-Pitt has reportedly turned his back on him following their alleged altercation on a plane last month.
The 15-year-old bailed on a scheduled visit with Pitt because he “doesn’t really see himself” as the actor’s son, sources told Us Weekly.
The teen reportedly stayed with mum Angelina Jolie while his siblings Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and eight-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, met with Pitt for their first supervised visit on October 8.
“Maddox is very close with Angie,” a Jolie confidante told the US magazine. “He doesn’t really see himself as Brad’s son.”
Another Jolie source said: “Maddox never wants to see Brad again.”
Jolie, 41, adopted Maddox from Cambodia in 2002, two years before she began dating 52-year-old Pitt. The Fight Club star officially adopted Maddox in 2006.
Last month, Jolie blindsided Pitt by filing for divorce. The shock split came after theWorld War Z star allegedly abused Maddox on a private jet, which led to an anonymous call being placed with the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services.
Sources close to Pitt have denied claims the actor physically abused Maddox.
“Angie and Brad are very worried about who goes near their children. It was clear from the start we had a great chemistry and they trusted me with the kids. We got very close, I was living with them all the time,” the 51-year-old said.
“I could take the kids anywhere I wanted to on my own. No one else was allowed to do that. Even when I wanted to bring in extra people, they wouldn’t let any of those near the kids. They could look out for them from a distance but they couldn’t physically touch them. I took them swimming. I fathered them, basically.”
