Every celebrity couple like Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt would rather keep the nasty details to themselves as to what really caused their split. Back then, what started tongues wagging is that their son, Maddox, reportedly spilled some details and gave his opinion as to who between his equally famous parents might have started the ball rolling.

Around a year ago, a story circulated that Maddox, Angelina and Brad’s son, believed that it was his mother who was the cause of his parents’ split. According to Gossip Cop, the story was first run by Radar Online and the National Enquirer, where it was stated that it was the “Tomb Raider” actress’ behavior that ignited problems with her husband. The story said that Maddox believes that it was his mom who was “the instigator” of the marital problem, which eventually led to the couple’s divorce.

The story went on to say that it was Angelina’s behavior that caused Maddox to side with Brad after he heard that Angelina went to the burial site of Pol Pot to pray. This action reportedly did not please Maddox at all since Pol Pot and other Khmer Rouge leaders were responsible for the Cambodian genocide in 1975.

However, fact-checking site Gossip Cop says that both stories — about Maddox believing that Jolie was the instigator and his supposed siding with Brad due to the Pol Pot burial incident — are completely untrue. For instance, there’s just no proof that the actress even went to Pol Pot’s grave to pray, which suggests that the story was completely made up.

In addition, the story claiming that Maddox believed his mom to be the cause of the split is contradicted by more recent developments. Instead of feeling resentful for Angelina, Maddox is still very close to his mom as they were spotted together in February.

It was Angelina, not Brad, who was spotted in New York with her eldest son, Maddox, in New York City three months ago. Apparently, the actress accompanied his son during a New York University tour.

Interestingly, recent rumors now say that Jolie picked Maddox to inherit her fortune, which is estimated to be around $116 million. “I heard Maddox will take care of Angelina’s film company,” Radar Online quoted Cambodian Buddhist Temple of Long Beach member Nang Lay as saying. “She wants to hand down her business to him.”

The publication added that the reason for Maddox inheritng Angelina’s wealth is because he sided with his mom, which contradicted previous reports. “Maddox took his mother’s side in the divorce, and now she’s made him the head of her movie empire,” Radar Online quoted an unidentified insider. Fortunately, Gossip Cop already cleared things up by getting in touch with Angelina’s camp, which confirmed that the story is also untrue.
