Until now Maddox Jolie-Pitt has been tight-lipped about his relationship with his father Brad Pitt, but the 18-year-old finally offered some insight into his family's private life after being cornered by reporters outside Yonsei University in South Korea.

When asked whether Brad would be visiting him at school, where he has just started studying biochemistry, Maddox shrugged.

"I don't know about that, what's happening," he said in footage obtained by In Touch Weekly.

It has been reported that Maddox and Brad grew estranged after an 2016 altercation aboard a private plane. Angelina Jolie filed for divorce soon after.

Responding to questions about whether his relationship with Brad was over, Maddox simply said, "What happens, happens."

Angelina traveled with Maddox to the university in August. While it is far from home in the U.S., his mother said it was "a great school," The Sun noted. Brad was laying low at the time, fueling speculation that his relationship with his son was indeed strained.

Two years after his divorce, Brad admitted to GQ Magazine that he had used drugs and alcohol for a large portion of his life and that his drinking "became a problem" in his marriage. He also opened up about his drinking in an interview with The New York Times earlier this month.

"I had taken things as far as I could take it, so I removed my drinking privileges," he explained, adding that joining Alcoholics Anonymous formed a big part of his recovery. In those meetings, he found it cathartic to expose "the ugly sides" of himself.

"You had all these men sitting around being open and honest in a way I have never heard," Brad continued. "It was this safe space where there was little judgment, and therefore little judgment of yourself."
