Angelina Jolie, a Hollywood icon, is celebrated not only for her acting prowess but also for her philanthropic endeavors. Born on June 4, 1975, in Los Angeles, California, to the famous actors Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand, Jolie grew up in the glamorous world of Hollywood with the responsibilities and expectations that came with being part of a renowned celebrity family. However, her personal journey became tumultuous when her parents divorced during her childhood due to their tumultuous relationship.
Despite personal challenges, Angelina Jolie rose to global fame with her successful acting career. Winning an Academy Award for her performance in “Girl, Interrupted” and starring in major films like “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” and “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider,” she became a household name. Beyond her acting career, Jolie gained recognition for her humanitarian work, serving as a Special Envoy and later a Goodwill Ambassador for the UNHCR. Her commitment to international causes such as gender equality and refugee rights solidified her reputation as a socially engaged personality extending beyond the realm of cinema.
Reports suggest that Angelina Jolie disclosed details of her inheritance, revealing her intention to bequeath her $116 million fortune to her son Maddox, one of her six children. This decision was framed as a gesture of gratitude for Maddox’s support during her divorce from Brad Pitt. Jolie expressed disappointment that only one of her six children stood by her during the divorce.
Insiders claim that Brad is upset with Angelina for treating Maddox as her “golden child” and excluding the other five children from her wealth. Jolie’s decision to leave her entire estate to Maddox as a token of appreciation has reportedly left Brad on the verge of outrage. Despite seemingly reaching a divorce agreement, the Maddox situation caught him off guard.
Allegedly, Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt in September 2016 due to dissatisfaction with his parenting style, particularly after an unfortunate incident involving Brad, Angelina, and Maddox. Jolie claimed that Pitt had physically confronted Maddox during the altercation. The Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services conducted an investigation, but no charges were filed. Brad, still reportedly upset about the situation, is particularly angered by Angelina’s refusal to update the records, according to a family member.
Sources suggest that Brad believes his other children are being treated unfairly, and he refuses to accept it. Angelina’s decision to exclude Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, and the ten-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne has fueled Brad Pitt’s anger. He contends that giving Maddox full control is unjust.
If these allegations prove true, Pitt and Jolie will undoubtedly engage in years of bitter disputes over the well-being of their children.
