“Brad’s been trying to rebuild his relationship with Maddox since his breakup with Angie,” dished a source.
“But Maddox remains a mama’s boy and simply can’t take the fighting anymore!”
The drama between Brad, 54, and Maddox exploded on the notorious booze-fueled 2016 family flight that led Angie to accuse her husband of a drunken, physical altercation and child abuse.
Although Pitt has denied all allegations of a physical altercation and child abuse, Maddox had reportedly jumped in to defend his mom during the savage argument with Brad, leading to an alleged fight between father and son. The next day Angelina filed for divorce.
Authorities cleared the “Fury” star of all abuse charges, but sources revealed that even therapy hasn’t been enough to repair his frayed relationship with the sensitive teenager.
“Brad has cleaned up his act and worked hard to improve things with Maddox,” an insider told Radar exclusively.
Still, Angie, 43, has continued to wage war against Brad and even tried to move their brood to Europe to limit his contact with Maddox and their other kids — Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 10-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne — as their divorce battle rages on.
Maddox and Pax both accompanied Angie to South Korea recently on an official humanitarian trip for the United Nations — and Brad’s realizing it may be too late to make amends with Maddox.
“Brad’s terrified that he may never be able to fix his relationship with his son!” said the insider.
