Angelina Jolie is ‘using son Maddox against ex Brad Pitt’ claim US reports.

ANGELINA Jolie has been accused of "preparing" teenage son Maddox Jolie-Pitt for an interview in an attempt to "stir things up" with Brad Pitt, according to claims.

Maddox, 18, is believed to have a "very limited relationship" with the Hollywood hunk, with their bond being fractured following a fight on board a private jet in 2016.

The incident occurred shortly before the Tomb Raider star, 44, filed for divorce with Brad, 55, and, with Maddox set to start university in South Korea, it has been claimed the bad feelings have been stirred up again - in deliberate fashion according to Page Six.

The teenager, one of Angelina's six children, undertook an interview in which he was quizzed whether Brad, who recently starred in Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, would be visiting him.

He replied: “Um, I don’t know about that … what’s happening [with that].”

Talking about their relationship going forward, he added: "Whatever happens, happens."

A source suggested to the American publication the chat had been staged to cause issues for Brad, whose divorce with Angelina is still going through the legal process.

They said: “Maddox seemed prepared for the interview.

“He wasn’t trying to fend off the interviewer — so people in the industry think maybe it’s an effort by Jolie’s camp to stir things up, even though things have been relatively calm.”

Brad and Angelina are said to have undergone as troubled split, with Brad seeking advice from the Alcoholics Anonymous group shortly after their break-up.

Angelina admitted filming 2015 movie, By The Sea, together, was an attempt to "communicate" with her then husband, and later added: "Maybe it didn't solve certain things, but we did communicate something that needed to be communicated."

Brad and Angelina married in 2014 after 12 years together and share children Maddox, Pax and Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 11.

Maddox, Zahara and Pax were adopted from orphanages in Cambodia, Ethiopia and Vietnam, respectively.

The remaining three are their biological children.

Angelina and her ex-husband Billy Bob Thorton adopted her oldest child, Maddox Chivan in 2002.

The pair took in Maddox after finding him in a Cambodian orphanage, but the adoption process took a while due to US government legislation.

The name Maddox derives from the Welsh word "mad" which means fortunate.

Sun Online has gone to Angelina's reps for comment.
