Everyone knows Jon Voight has a strained relationship with his daughter Angelina Jolie. Their relationship was rocky for the longest time because of the divorce, which prompted Angelina to drift away from her father. Still, what truly divided them was after Maddox was adopted by the then single Angelina. Jon had made a public plea for his daughter to get help, which would have been understandable if it happened prior to the adoption. His stunt almost risked her early custody situation.
The one thing Angelina can be pretty hardcore about, besides chasing attached men, is her kids. That’s why Jon was on the outside — and also why he was let back in. She wanted her kids to have grandparents. Even though Jon is somewhat back in he’s still on the outskirts, and I don’t blame Angelina for that. Jon’s problem is keeping his mouth closed. Yeah, he can be hurt she didn’t tell about her mastectomy, but why should she tell the town crier her personal business?
But he continues to make a mess of things, especially now, after going to Angelina’s friend and his costar, Liev Schreiber. The two may be close while working on the set of Ray Donovan, but that doesn’t give Jon any right to bring him in on personal family matters – in attempts to repair his disintegrating relationship. Do you think Brad Pitt has anything to worry about as far as Liev’s concerned?
