Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s son Maddox testified against his father during the couple’s contentious divorce and custody battle, offering a disparaging opinion about his actor father.
The 19-year-old university student had already given testimony as a legal adult in the ongoing custody dispute an a source stated that Maddox’s account wasn’t very alluring toward Brad.
The source also revealed that Maddox wants to legally remove ‘Pitt’ from his name, something his mother doesn’t encourage.
‘He doesn’t use Pitt as his last name on documents that aren’t legal and instead uses Jolie,’ the source said.
An alleged altercation between Maddox and Brad in 2016 was said to be the final straw for Jolie, who is now reportedly prepared to provide proof of domestic abuse in the divorce trial.
The couple share Maddox, Zahara, 16, Pax, 17, Shiloh, 14, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 12, and are hashing out custody and financial arrangements in the trial, which will see their youngest children provide testimony if they give permission.
Soon after the couple filed for divorce in 2016, it was revealed that Brad was being investigated by the FBI and social services in LA amid reports he got ‘verbally abusive and physical with his children’ on a private jet yet he was cleared.
