Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were once considered one of Hollywood's most beloved couples. However, their relationship faced several challenges, leading Angelina Jolie to decide to end it. In September 2016, the couple was traveling on a private jet with their children when an argument ensued. Angelina claimed that Brad had physically abused their eldest son, Maddox, during the incident, which ultimately led her to file for divorce.
In the aftermath, Angelina Jolie accused Brad Pitt of domestic violence. The divorce proceedings were highly publicized and marked by intense scrutiny from the media. Amidst the legal battles, their son Pax Jolie-Pitt took to his private Instagram account in 2020 to share a post on Father's Day. In the post, he referred to his father, Brad Pitt, as the "world's worst man." Pax expressed his disdain, stating, "Happy Father's Day to the most terrible human being in the world. You continue to prove that you are an awful and a sad excuse of a person. There is no empathy for you concerning your own children. They shiver in front of you because of your actions. You will never understand how much damage you have done to my family, because you can't do that."
Pax further accused Brad Pitt of turning the lives of people close to him into hell and warned that the truth would eventually come to light. The post concluded with a sarcastic "Happy Father's Day" wish to Brad Pitt.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt share six children together. Their eldest son, Maddox, was adopted from an orphanage in Cambodia. Additionally, they have adopted children named Zahara and Pax, and three biological children named Shiloh and twins Knox and Vivienne. Despite the family's once-close bond, the divorce has left them separated.
The tumultuous divorce proceedings shed light on the complexities of high-profile relationships, reminding the public that even glamorous Hollywood couples face challenges behind the scenes. The allegations of domestic violence and the emotional fallout from the divorce have cast a shadow over the once-charmed image of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's relationship. The social media post from Pax Jolie-Pitt serves as a poignant reminder of the impact such personal conflicts can have on families, regardless of their celebrity status.
