It appears as though the custody battle between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie has just gotten significantly worse, if not also much sadder. That’s because the estranged couple’s eldest son, Maddox Jolie-Pitt, has testified against his father. What’s more, the 19-year-old wants to legally drop ‘Pitt’ from his last name. Here’s what you need to know.
“Maddox has already given testimony as [an] adult in the ongoing custody dispute and it wasn’t very flattering toward Brad,” one source close to the situation tells Us Weekly. “He doesn’t use Pitt as his last name on documents that aren’t legal and instead uses Jolie. Maddox wants to legally change his last name to Jolie, which Angelina has said she doesn’t support.”

And while no one knows the details surrounding what might or might not have been said by Maddox, there’s a chance that Brad’s lawyers might try to argue that the FBI cleared him of any wrongdoing.
The source added, “The Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services cleared him of any child abuse allegations almost immediately,” the insider tells Us. “The case remained open out of an abundance of caution because the department took the matter seriously, and in the almost two years of monitored visitation, there was not one instance that caused any alarm bells to go off.”
Earlier this week it was reported that Angelina Jolie is prepared to present evidence in her domestic violence case against Brad Pitt. The actress has agreed to provide testimony herself, along with the “testimony of minor children,” according to the court documents.
“If Angelina has more documentation to prove domestic violence towards her or the children, she can submit it as a supplemental offer to prove in trial,” family law expert and Ideal Legal Group, Inc. founder Evie P. Jeang tells Us. “She can say these are the documentation in addition to what she already presented. This could mean it’s a more recent instance (of domestic violence), or further documentation related to what was presented before.”
