Brad Pitt & Maddox Reportedly Reunited -- but With Help (& That's a Good Thing)

Earlier this week it was reported that Brad Pitt finally had a chance to reunite with five of his six kids, but 15-year-old Maddox was notably absent from the visit. Now it looks as though father and son are making strides to repair the rumored rift -- Maddox and Brad allegedly just met for the first time since the Brangelina divorce.

E! News reports that Brad and Maddox visited with one another for the first time on October 19, but they weren't alone. A therapist allegedly joined in on the meeting -- and that, we think, is really good news for the family.

If you aren't up to speed on the controversy surrounding the two, it is rumored (thought definitely not confirmed) that Brad and Maddox got into an altercation mid-flight on a private plane on September 14. Some outlets have suggested this outburst was the straw that broke the camel's back, and Brad's treatment of Maddox was what caused Angelina to file for divorce from Brad.

Of course, it's all still rumors -- those are serious allegations to make, and neither Brad nor Angelina has spoken up about the incident, so we still don't know.

Either way, Maddox's alleged absence from the kids' reunion with Brad was notable. We know this has to be hard on Maddox, and we hope he's able to cope with it in a healthy way.

Which is why the rumor that they brought a therapist into the mix from the get-go is such a warming idea -- it feels like a very healthy step in repairing Brad and Maddox's relationship. An impartial third party can play an important role in making both father and son come to terms with whatever did happen between them and help foster understanding.

If the reports are true, this would be the first time they've seen each other in more than a month, and we're sure any help alleviating pressure was appreciated.

Currently, Angelina reportedly has sole custody of all six children while Brad has visitation rights. We hope the entire family can get to a happier, healthier place -- for the sake of everyone involved.
