Even though Maddox Jolie-Pitt is disappointed that college was interrupted by the coronavirus crisis, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are very much relieved. Plus, Brad got to spend more time with him.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt can breathe a sigh of relief since their eldest son is home from college. Maddox Jolie-Pitt, 18, returned back to California from South Korea after Yonsei University shut down its campus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The college freshman, like many students around the world, is currently doing his classes online from the safety of his home.
Since he cannot be at school this semester, it is “a huge disappointment for him,” a source revealed. However, the family is happy to spend more time with him.
“Angelina is very relieved that he’s at home and safe and sound, and so is Brad,” the source added. “They are both still very protective of him. His semester was supposed to start a few weeks ago, but before classes even began, everything was put on hold, and the semester was postponed. It’s very possible he won’t be going back [to campus] until summer.”
While he’s home, his priority is being with his mother and five siblings, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox Jolie-Pitt. That does not mean he isn’t hanging with his father.
Brad and Maddox once had a strong relationship, which became troubled shortly before Brad and Angelina filed for divorce in 2017. However, their relationship has “improved.”
Pitt even reportedly skipped the BAFTAs, where he won Best Supporting Actor for Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood, so he could see his estranged son, who came home.
And since Maddox is back from South Korea indefinitely, they will spend more “quality time” together.
