Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have reportedly hired a therapist to help their 7-year-old son Pax, who has been bullying his other siblings, alleges an American magazine.
“He’s become something of a bully,” a family insider told In Touch magazine. “He picks on 5-year-old Shiloh, and even on his big brother, Maddox. He’s really having a tough time getting along with his siblings.”
Pax’s trouble may be due to the fact that, unlike his other adopted siblings, he was 3 when he joined the Jolie-Pitt brigade, and has memories of his former life in a Vietnamese orphanage.
“We’re slowly beginning to build his trust,” Angelina revealed not long after she became Pax’s adopted mum. “It will take him a while to realise he has a family.”
And being in the public eye doesn’t help the little lad either. “He’s having a difficult time with the constant schedule changes,” the insider said. “And with the fact that people stare at him whenever he’s with his parents.”
However, the story appears in In Touch magazine, the publication that ‘broke’ the Will Smith marriage split story, which has since been denied by Will and his wife Jada.
Could it just be that Pax is a normal 7-year-old, having the usual tussles with his brothers and sisters? After all, we’ve heard before that middle children can be the worst offenders in home bullying.
