“Maddox had a girlfriend there for a little while last year. It was like puppy love,” said a source.
The 17-year-old has been growing up quickly, with mom Angelina recently taking him on educational tours of universities in Seoul, South Korea.
And as he prepares to leave the comforts of his home nest behind, he’s maturing in the dating department as well.
“Now he’s stepping up his game, and likes to take girls to the movies or for drives through the Hollywood Hills,” the source continued. “He drives them around himself in his pick-up truck that Angie bought him as soon as he was able to drive.”
The Tomb Raider star is busy raising her teenage son, and his five siblings, without the help of absent dad Brad Pitt, whom Radar has exclusively revealed hasn’t been seen in public with the flock in nearly three years.
The tension of the missing father figure has hit home, as Maddox has vowed to move out and get his own place, to escape the bitter bickering between his parents.
But word that he’s on the prowl for a mate of his own pleases the helicopter mama.
“Angie was so thrilled when Maddox told her he was taking girls out. He’s her eldest and she was so excited to watch him become a man,” the source confessed.
Just don’t expect Angie to let Maddox treat his ladies the way she claims Brad has treated her.
“She’s sat him down and made sure to explain how to treat women with respect.”
