Brad Pitt and his Totally Hair Ken Doll hair (“Bitch, he wishes he had it like this.” – Totally Hair Ken) weren’t at the BAFTAs this past weekend, and when his Once Upon a Time in Hollywood co-star Margot Robbie accepted his Best Supporting Actor win for him, she said he couldn’t be there to drop his Brexit and Prince Hot Ginge jokes himself, because he had a family obligation. The Sun claims that family obligation was a meet-up with his 18-year-old son Maddox Jolie-Pitt, who probably has had Brad blocked from TikTok since their relationship hasn’t exactly been Best Dad mugs and Father of the Year mylar balloons for a while. But Brad reportedly ditched the royals to hang out with Maddox.
Brad and Maddox’s relationship has apparently been circling the drain ever since Brad went all drunk dad in an after-school special on Maddox on that private jet in 2016. Ever since then, we’ve heard stories about how Maddox isn’t interested in having a relationship with his dad, and the two haven’t said words to each other in a long minute. Maddox is currently a student at Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea, and when a paparazzo asked him if his relationship with his dad was over, he surprisingly didn’t pull up a couch, lay on it, and tell the therapist paparazzo (therarazzo?) his deepest thoughts on the complicated relationship with his father. Instead, Maddox answered, “Whatever happens, happens.” I took that to mean, “What the fuck do you think?!”, because I use that same line whenever my sister asks me if I want to have dinner at her favorite vegan restaurant on a Saturday. (Eating healthy on a weekend is against my religion.)
A source tells The Sun that Maddox’s “Whatever happens, happens” has turned into him extending an olive branch. The old Brad would’ve taken that olive branch and smoked it up, but the new Brad dropped his plans to go to the BAFTAs to have a heart-to-heart with his son:
“Maddox gave Brad the chance to talk and he dropped everything. Being a father is the most important thing in his life and he would do anything to repair their relationship. Maddox has been away at university so when Brad found out he was going to be around and they could have a conversation, he cancelled the UK trip.”
If the rumor about Angelina Jolie using Maddox against Brad is true, then expect Maddox to ask Brad to hang out right before the Oscars on Sunday, as St. Angie maniacally cackles into the air over ruining her ex’s time in the Oscar shine!
Because of his totally-not-planned moments with Jennifer Aniston at the SAGs, us cynical tricks are probably looking at this story as another part of Brad’s Oscar campaign. But would Brad stoop that low for a dumb Oscar? Not even H.O. Club (Hard-up for Oscar) president Leonardo DiCaprio was that shameless! Cut to Leonardo shredding the document from his PR Team stating plans to be papped kissing a foot-in-the-grave grandma (read: a woman of the age of 27) to appeal to the old hags of the Academy.
