Last year, Maddox began college at Yonsei University in South Korea, but has returned home to Jolie, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
However, despite Pitt's tarnished relationship with Maddox, he seems to be attempting to redeem his connection with Pax.
“With Maddox overseas [for college], Brad is also hopeful that Pax will also be interested in reconnecting without the influence of his older brother,” the insider said.
As the only family member to have commented on his and Pitt's compromised relationship, Maddox remains grounded on his decision to keep his father at bay.
After being approached by paparazzi while at college last September, Maddox was asked whether Pitt would be visiting him at college, to which he replied:
“I don’t know about that, what’s happening.” Then, when the reporter questioned whether his relationship with Pitt was over for good, Maddox simple said:
“Whatever happens, happens."
