I am so unbelievably torn about this entire divorce and child custody situation.  We all know that Angelina Jolie and at least one of her children, Maddox, has said Brad Pitt got so drunk and upsetting on a flight into LA several years ago that Angelina went home and filed for divorce.  Starting one of the most vicious Hollywood divorces in a while.

But I seriously can not image Brad behaving in a way that someone would feel threatened or even deeply hurt.  He’s a stoner with dimples!  But seriously, Angelina has leveled several allegations of abuse against Brad, all were investigated and none were substantiated.

That said, Maddox has a beef and the pain is real.  Now comes word that Maddox has already given his testimony in the ongoing dispute between mom and dad (Ang & Brad) and now he’s eager to legally drop the name Pitt from his moniker.

A “source” told Us mag, “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.”
