Angelina Jolie is desperate to reel in her eldest son, Maddox, fearing he may want to leave the family,” reports OK! magazine. The magazine’s “sources” explain that the 12-year-old is “rebelling against his famous parents.”

One tipster tells OK! that Jolie “has become worried because he’s talking a lot about traveling to Cambodia,” the country from which he was adopted as a baby.

According to the tab’s insider, “He spends hours on the Internet in an attempt to trace relatives. He says it’s his dream to be reunited with his real family.” Brad Pitt, meanwhile, is “reassuring Angie that what Maddox is doing is totally normal for an inquisitive kid,” reveals the OK! source.

It should be pointed out that OK! has consistently gotten stories about the Jolie-Pitt children wrong. Just last week, the tabloid published a cover story that falsely claimed Jolie and Pitt are pregnant with twins.

OK! does not have good sources with the family, period. This latest report about Jolie being “desperate” to keep Maddox in the family is just more of the same. A source close to the situation tells Gossip Cop it’s “ridiculous.”
