The DailyMail reported that an exclusive source told the paper that the young man posted the rant on his private Instagram account on Father’s Day in 2020.

He accompanied his complaints with a photo of Pitt receiving an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his role in "Once Upon A Time... In Hollywood" a couple of months earlier, according to the source.

"Happy Father’s Day to this world class asshole," Jolie-Pitt reportedly wrote.

He allegedly added that the actor was a "terrible and despicable" person who had "no consideration or empathy toward" his four youngest children, making them "tremble in fear" and live in "a constant hell" when he was around.

The source said that Jolie-Pitt rarely talked about his parents and tended to keep "himself to himself" for most of the time, which made his social media rant about his father "unusual".

The report further reinforced public allegations about the "Brangelina" siblings taking sides with Jolie, which first appeared in a 2021 US Weekly report that cited an exclusive source as saying that Maddox Jolie-Pitt, the oldest among the star couple’s children, wanted to officially drop his father’s surname and legally change his last name to Jolie.

The claim came into the spotlight again earlier this month when Zahara Jolie-Pitt, another child of the two, stated her name as "Zahara Marley Jolie" at her first appearance at a gathering of her Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority sisters.

Pax Thien Jolie-Pitt, 20, was abandoned by his heroin-addicted biological mother shortly after his birth in Ho Chi Minh City. He was then sent to a local orphanage, where he was named Pham Quang Sang. He lived there until he was adopted by Jolie and Pitt in 2007.

Currently an abstract visual artist, he has been seen with his actress mother on many public occasions recently, including when he assisted her during the last month shooting in Paris of her upcoming film "Maria."

Jolie, 48, has six children with Pitt, 60: Maddox, Pax Thien, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox Jolie-Pitt. Along with Pax Thien, Maddox and Zahara were the ex-couple’s adopted children, from orphanages in Cambodia and Ethiopia respectively. Meanwhile, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox are the couple’s biological children.

The actors have been embroiled in a custody battle ever since Jolie’s initial divorce filing in 2016. Jolie was granted physical custody of the children, while Pitt was given joint custody in 2021. However, the legal battle between the two stars is still ongoing.
