She gave a speech on behalf of Pitt (than very amused public), prepared by him in advance. According to insiders, the actor refused to participate in the ceremony at the last minute for family reasons. According to sources, Pitt stayed in the US to talk with his eldest son Maddox and try to establish a relationship with him.
Maddox gave Brad the opportunity to talk, and he quit. Being a father is the most important thing for him in life, and he will do everything to improve relations with his son,
– said the insider.
18 year old Maddox who is now studying at university in South Korea, he came home for a while, and when Pitt found out that his son would be there and they could talk, he canceled his trip to the UK.
Relations between Pitt and his eldest son deteriorated in 2016 after the actor had a falling out with his ex-wife Angelina Jolie during a private flight. Maddox then sided with his mother, and she later accused Pitt of allegedly hitting their son (later this charge was dropped). Since then, Maddox did not want to communicate with Pitt and did not want to recognize himself as his son.
