For the first time since her split from Brad Pitt in September 2016, the actress is on the hunt to find a new man after her eldest son fled the coop.
“She’s been very emotional now that Maddox has gone off to college and says she has more time than she knows what to do with," a source told Radar exclusively.
While Jolie, 44, is "still focused on family," the lonely star finds there’s "a huge hole in her life she needs to fill" and she’s come to the conclusion that now’s the time to "dip her toe in the water with some potential suitors."
But the A-lister isn't alone in this. "She’s got some business acquaintances looking into this discreetly for her, plus there are a couple of guys who she’s hit up directly."
Jolie had a plan of attack when it came to the dating pool. "She plans to go on a date at least one or two times a week and see where it takes her.”
Fans know Maddox was given a celebrity welcome when he arrived in South Korea to begin his college studies this week.
Fellow students looked on in awe as the famous mom's eldest child, 18, tried to blend in with the crowd on his first day at Yonsei University.
Radar readers know the Maleficent actress dropped Maddox off earlier this week but didn’t stick around to see him officially get his college days underway.
Local TV crews and photographers were allowed in to get a glimpse of the teen during his orientation.
Jolie adopted Maddox when he was just seven months old in his native Cambodia. In 2006, he was also adopted by Pitt, 55.
The famous couple called it quits in 2016 after Pitt allegedly got into a heated fight with Maddox aboard a private plane.
As Radar previously reported, Maddox has been his mom’s rock ever since she left Pitt.
The actress sees him as her “golden child,” and already feels the nest is empty without him.
