Angelina Jolie and Pax Jolie-Pitt
A rant redone about Brad Pitt by his son, Pax Jolie Pittis making the rounds — and in the Instagram screenshot, Pax allegedly called his father a “horrible human being.”
Pax, 19 years old, adopted at the age of 3 in Vietnam by Angelina Jolie in 2007 (and later by Pitt in 2008), allegedly posted a scathing message about Pitt on Father’s Day 2020.
“Happy Father’s Day to this world class asshole!!” the message read, superimposed on a photo of Pitt accepting the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor. “You prove time and time again that you are a terrible and despicable person.”
Pax, who was 16 when he allegedly posted the story on Instagram, continued: “You have no consideration or empathy for your 4 youngest children who are trembling in fear in your presence. You will never understand the evil that you caused my family because you I am incapable of it.”
In his post, Pax claimed that Pitt “made the lives of my loved ones a constant living hell.”
He added: “You can tell yourself and the world what you want, but the truth will come out one day. So happy Father’s Day, you fucking horrible human being.”
Parade contacted Pitt’s representative but did not immediately receive a response.
A source confirmed to Daily Mail that the private account in the screenshot belongs to Pax.
“This is the account he uses for his friends, friends from school mainly,” the source reportedly told the publication. “He never talks much about his parents, he keeps to himself, so it was unusual.”
It is not clear why the message is now circulating. However, this comes almost two months after Jolie opened up about her family’s “healing” journey in Vogue.
“We had a lot of healing to do,” she said in September, without elaborating. “We’re still finding our place.”
She added in the post: “I was 26 when I became a mother. My whole life changed. Having children saved me and taught me to live differently in this world.”
Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt in August 2016 following an alleged altercation on a private jet; they were finally declared legally single in April 2019.
In October 2022, Pitt’s lawyer, Anne Kiley, told E! News in defense of his client’s character: “Brad has owned everything he’s been responsible for since day one, unlike the other side, but he won’t own anything he didn’t do. He been the target of all types of personal criticism, attack and misrepresentation.
