Brad Pitt's fears as Angelina Jolie takes son Maddox on danger trip to Cambodia



Safety fears: Brad Pitt said he was concerned
 about partner Angelina and son Maddox

 Angelina Jolie has made a perilous secret trip to Cambodia with her young son Maddox – to the concern of her partner Brad Pitt.

The Hollywood actress wanted to open a community centre for children in the village where Maddox was born, but their 150-mile journey involved travelling through a remote area littered with landmines and known for its civil unrest in the days of the notorious Khmer Rouge.

Maddox – the couple’s ten-year-old adopted son – comes from Srok Samlot and Angie was determined that he should witness his roots first-hand and took him to meet the village chief.

‘Angie and Maddox are incredibly close,’ said a source. ‘She calls him her buddy and was determined to take him on the trip, but Brad questioned the trek because it was so dangerous.

‘The area they ventured through is littered with hundreds of thousands of landmines and cluster bombs. To say Brad was concerned is an understatement.’

The pair were accompanied by armed bodyguards and Brad is understood to be worried about exposing Maddox to violence. The source added: ‘Maddox is obsessed with toy guns. Brad thinks she should be letting him act like a little boy rather than encouraging his interest in violence.’

Brad, 47, and Angelina, 36, run the Maddox Jolie-Pitt Foundation and the organisation supports a children’s centre in the Cambodian capital Phnom Penh that cares for orphans.

Three of the couple’s six children are adopted, and earlier this month Angelina took their eight-year-old son Pax to his native Vietnam.
