Estranged Hollywood couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt may lose custody of their adopted sons Maddox (15) and Pax (13). The couple, who are currently battling for custody of their six children, will reportedly have to send back Maddox and Pax to their biological parents, according to Radar Online.
Pax was adopted by Jolie and Pitt from an orphanage in Vietnam in 2007. His biological mother will soon be released from a prison in Vietnam, and wants to reunite with her son. Radar Online quoted a source saying ,”I’m sure both Brad and Angie are freaking out over this. It’s been a fear from day one that the biological parents of their adopted kids would resurface.”
Maddox’s Cambodian parents are believed to have passed away. But there are reports that the adoption was broked by a dubious agent named Lauryn Galindo. Galindo was later jailed and sentenced for visa fraud and money laundering involving more than 800 adoptions. Children’s rights groups investigating Galindo believe that Maddox’s destitute mother sold her son for $100.
Hollywood’s best-known couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt ended their 12-year-long relationship in September this year. They had been married for two years. According to a BBC report, Jolie had initiated divorce proceedings. Jolie’s Lawyer Robert Offer said that the “decision was made for the health of the family”.
