Angelina Jolie was with Maddox, Pax, Shiloh, Zahara, Vivienne and Knox and has touched down in Los Angeles on Mach 18. Sarath said that Angelina had to change Maddox's name to claim him and he said that he was the child's father at that time.
Now, an aid worker named Mounh Sarath has stepped up saying that he was Maddox's real father and claims that even the court in Battambang, Cambodia recognizes him.
The news of their ongoing professional partnership emerges weeks after Angelina insisted she still believes Brad is a "wonderful father" to their six kids, despite facing a child services investigation following their split previous year (16). This allowed her to make the adoption with no problems.
In an explosive interview with the newspaper, Mounh said, "In court documents, Maddox is still my son".
"Everything I do I hope is that I represent something, and I represent the right things to my children, and give them the right sense of what they're capable of, and the world as it should be seen", Angelina Jolie said, while adding: "Not through the prism of Hollywood or through a certain kind of life, but really take them into the world, where they have a really good sense and become rounded people".
The actress, who has been special envoy since 2012, had previously met Welby in 2015 at the opening of the Centre for Women, Peace and Security at the London School of Economics (LSE), a centre she helped launch with former British Foreign Secretary William Hague, where she spoke about ending sexual violence in areas of conflict, a cause she has been championing in recent years. "She never cleared this up".
Angelina - a U.N special envoy - fell in love with Cambodia during filming of Lara Croft: Tomb Raider in 2001 and won citizenship in 2005.
The adoption had also been arranged by a certain Lauryn Galindo.
Maddox was adopted during the time the United States was imposing stricter rules in adopting children from Cambodia.
Angelina Jolie stands strong with her decision to return to the public eye by committing to humanitarian work. "I can only imagine how terrible that would feel".
The sting of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's divorce announcement has dulled slightly in the half a year since the news broke.
