Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Brad Pitt and Maddox have met for the first time since Angelina Jolie filed for divorce, sources claim.

Pitt met with some of his children for the second time earlier this week after Jolie filed for divorce from him and reports have surfaced saying that their eldest son, Maddox, has finally agreed to meet with his dad. It was reported that the reason behind the divorce of Pitt and Jolie was because the actor got verbally and physically abusive against the 15-year-old while in a flight back to Los Angeles from Paris.

It was confirmed by the publication E! News that the father and son saw each other for the first time in more than a month on Wednesday. A therapist was reportedly present during the meeting. The presence of a therapist has been required by the Los Angeles' Department of Children and Family Services as the investigation into the supposed altercation between Jolie-Pitt and Pitt that took place.

According to reports, Maddox initially refused to see his father in the past because he was mad at him and he was not yet ready to face him in person. Sources claimed that Maddox stayed with his mother during the time that his siblings saw their father and that he does not consider Pitt as his dad specifically because Jolie adopted him on her own. Maddox was adopted before Jolie and Pitt got together.

Jolie adopted Maddox from Cambodia in March 10, 2002. He was only seven months old during that time.

The five other children, however, have been present in the last two occasions that Pitt was allowed to see them. It was also reported that the children underwent therapy before their father could see them. An insider said that Pitt wanted to make sure the meeting would be very productive for their children.

As for Jolie, the FBI paid a visit to her home in Malibu in order to ask about the private plane incident.

It remains unclear what the arrangements will be between the two once the investigation is finished and the divorce is finalized.
