Did Angelina Jolie adopt her son Maddox Jolie-Pitt using fake papers? That’s what everyone is asking, there’s a new report that says the Hollywood star might have adopted her son using false information. Angelina began Maddox’s adoption process in 2002 while she was still married to her ex-husband, Billy Bob Thornton.
According to several new reports, charity aid worker Mounh Sarath claims that he signed official papers in Maddox’s native Cambodia claiming that he was his father. Angelina allegedly wanted to speed up her son’s adoption process. Mounh also points out that he still has power of attorney over 15-year-old Maddox, even though he lives in Los Angeles with his famous mother. Angelina’s soon-to-be ex-husband, Brad Pitt, legally adopted Maddox in 2006.
Mounh Sarath told the Daily Mail, “She had to change his name, so the only way was for me to do it. I said he’s my son. In court documents, Maddox is still my son. She never cleared this up.“
Mounh also says that he and Angelina had a falling out and that he hasn’t spoken to the actress in years. To make matters worse, Angelina Jolie’s adoption agent Lauryn Galindo spent time in prison after she allegedly falsified the names, birth dates and birth places of Cambodian children for American parents that wanted to adopt them.
Of course, the last thing Angelina Jolie needs right now is more negative publicity. She’s already gone through enough with her nasty divorce and custody battle with her soon-to-be ex-husband, Brad Pitt. So far she hasn’t made any comments about the claims and there’s a good chance that she won’t either.
Tell us, do you believe Mounh Sarath’s claims? After all, many critics have always pointed out that celebrities like Angelina Jolie’s adoption cases are usually fast-tracked even though many parents usually wait years before their adoption processes are completed. Plus, there are also reports that say that during the time of Maddox’s adoption in 2003, the United States imposed tougher adoption restrictions of children from Cambodia because of trafficking fears. So how did Angelina Jolie manage to adopt Maddox so quickly and swiftly?
