Maddox Jolie-Pitt breaks silence on strained relationship with dad Brad Pitt

Maddox Jolie-Pitt has opened up about his dad Brad Pitt, giving a brief insight into the difficulty of their relationship. 

It seems their relationship hasn’t improved, he admitted in a rare interview about his famous father. 

The 18-year-old who is studying biochemistry at Yonsei University in South Korea, said on film obtained by In Touch Weekly that he wasn’t sure if his father would visit him while he is studying abroad. 

“I don’t know about that [or] what’s happening,” he told a reporter. 

Maddox also spoke on their relationship being over or improving to which he said “Well, whatever happens, happens”. 

Reports show Maddox and his 55-year-old Hollywood heavyweight father had a falling out in 2016 after an incident aboard a private plane. 

Allegedly, Pitt hit his eldest son in a rage - a few days later, his wife Angelina Jolie filed for divorce. 

Pitt fell under investigation by US authorities after being accused of physically and verbally abusing his children during an angry outburst, TMZ reported in September 2016. 

Pitt vehemently denied allegations of violence against his children, however he did admit to screaming at his son. 

The FBI cleared Pitt of any violent wrongdoings and said they would not file charges against him. 

44-year-old Angelina dropped Maddox off at university in August. 

Together, Brad and Angelina share six children; Maddox, Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 11.
