A Cambodian aid worker is claiming that he signed documents stating that he was the father of Angelina Jolie’s oldest son, Maddox. He claims he did so in order to “speed up the process” and “provide a local address.”
Jolie adopted Maddox from Cambodia during a time when much of the corruption in Cambodian adoptions was coming to light. The adoption agent who facilitated Maddox’s adoption was later jailed in the US for falsifying information on adoption paperwork.
However, Jolie has asserted in the past that her adoption from Cambodia was ethical and legal.
