A certain blog is pretending to know the “exclusive” reason why Angelina Jolie brought her 14-year-old son Pax to the Golden Globes instead of her oldest son Maddox. The explanation, however, is purely speculative and didn’t come from any insiders. Gossip Cop can expose this made-up story.

Both Maddox and Pax worked on Jolie’s latest movie First They Killed My Father, which was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at Sunday night’s ceremony, but only Pax accompanied her to the event. According to HollywoodLife, the 16-year-old’s absence was due to him staying home to take care of injured sister Shiloh, who broke her collarbone during a family vacation to Lake Tahoe last month.

The untrustworthy site quotes an alleged “insider” as saying, “Maddox has taken on the role of caretaker in the family… he preferred to stay home and look after his little sister Shiloh rather than go to the Golden Globes with Angelina.” The questionable source goes on to say that Pax “loves dressing up and hitting the carpet,” so he was happy to join his mom at the bash.

The nonexistent insider further contends that Maddox “views life much more seriously than Pax” and finds Hollywood “distasteful,” so he had no problem skipping the awards show. The phony source adds, “Maddox has totally assumed the role of ‘man of the house’ since his mom and dad split… and loves to take some of the pressure of looking after the younger kids off of the shoulders of his mom.”

However, the webloid’s assertion that Maddox resents Hollywood is baseless, considering he served as an executive producer on his mom’s film. More importantly, Gossip Cop is assured that no one close to Jolie is speaking to HollywoodLife about her children. The blog’s article amounts to fan fiction, not journalism.

Here’s what’s really happening. Last month, Maddox missed a United Nations event honoring his mom to stay home with his younger sister Vivienne, who had an upset stomach. The unreliable outlet has now concocted a similar narrative in an attempt to explain why the teen didn’t attend the Golden Globes. However, the site’s insistence that he skipped the event to care for Shiloh is guesswork that didn’t come from any actual sources.
