Angeline Jolie and Brad Pitt’s oldest son, Maddox was adopted by the A-list actress from Cambodia back in March of 2002. But the time passed so fast and he already headed off to college.

He decided to attend Yonsei University in South Korea to study biochemistry, and Jolie was the one who dropped him off at the school.

“I leave today, I’m trying not to cry,”

- the Oscar winner said in the sweet video, posted to Instagram by user @xx_efu.

The mother-son duo were all smiles in the photos and videos shared on the account, as Angelina took the time to chat with Maddox’s fellow students and even offered to take a picture with the excited group. The video was taken in a building on-campus.

Father-son relationship

Interestingly, it seems that Brad Pitt didn't know about his son's choice. According to a Jolie-Pitt insider, the actor learned of his son’s plans right before the news leaked to the media.

“Brad hasn’t been spending much time with Maddox lately,”

This, in fact, isn't a big surprise for the couple's fans as they know that Brad and Maddox’s relationship is strained.

For instance, neither Maddox nor his little brother Pax went to Brad’s house to open Christmas presents a year before. According to US Weekly sources, they “refused to go.”
