Yesterday, we learned that since Angelina Jolie filed for divorce, Brad Pitt has visited with the child army twice and neither time included 15-year-old Maddox. Maddox clearly needed some time before he was mentally ready to make small talk with the reason why he’ll always feel a little tense when he sees the bar cart on an airplane. TMZ says that Maddox was finally ready to meet with Brad, and that meeting happened yesterday afternoon.
Sources say that Brad and Maddox’s meeting was in the presence of a therapist. That’s a whole lot different than what I pictured, which was Brad pulling up to Angelina Jolie’s Malibu rental on his motorcycle and grunting, “Hey kid, how you holding up?” while lighting a match for his cigarette with his thumbnail.
There was apparently a plan in place for Brad and Maddox to get together earlier than yesterday, but the therapist felt the timing wasn’t right. Even though Angelina is rumored to be in a bunker with her legal team trying to find new ways to take down Brad in court, the source claims she was fully on board with him meeting with Maddox, because she wants her kids to have both a mother and father in their lives.
Hmmmmm, I wonder who leaked this story? Normally therapists keep that shit private, so I’m curious who dropped the info into TMZ’s inbox. If it was Angelina’s side, then I applaud their restraint for not adding in a part about Brad showing up 10 minutes late smelling like the inside of Snoop Dogg’s tour bus and that he swiped a copy of Psychology Today from the waiting room on his way out.
