Angelina Jolie had a rocky relationship with her dad, Jon Voight, over the years, which many tabloids have taken advantage of by creating a drama between the father and daughter.
Angelina Jolie grew up with her mom following the latter’s divorce from her dad, Jon Voight. They have been estranged for years, but the father and daughter have been working on building a good relationship. However, several outlets still claim that the two are not okay, which Gossip Cop debunked.
Angelina Jolie cut off her communication with her dad
In 2002, Jon Voight said that he had a hard time reaching out to his daughter, Angelina Jolie. The latter confirmed that she cut her ties from her father.
At the time, Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton were divorcing and she just adopted Maddox. The Maleficent star said in a statement to Access Hollywood that she didn’t want to make public the reason behind her “bad relationship” with her dad. However, she expressed her interest in having a “warm and loving relationship with our dad.”
“After all these years, I have determined that it is not healthy for me to be around my father, especially now that I am responsible for my own child,” Jolie said via E! News.
Jolie and Voight have rekindled their relationship
Angelina Jolie and her dad, Jon Voight, eventually reconciled and ended their issues against each other. In fact, Voight was there following Jolie’s divorce from Brad Pitt in 2016.
The celebrity mom even praised her dad for being “very good at understanding” that her children needed their grandfather at the time. Jolie also boasted how her dad stayed at home and looked after the kids when she had to do a therapy meeting.
“He knows kind of the rule — don’t make them play with you. Just be a cool grandpa who’s creative, and hang out and tell stories and read a book in the library,” Jolie added.
Meanwhile, Voight talked about Jolie’s love for her kids. According to him, Jolie loves her brood and she is always involved with them. In fact, she monitors everything about them.
False rumors about the father and daughter
There are rumors that Angelina Jolie just reconciled with her dad so he won’t support Brad Pitt following their divorce. National Enquirer claimed that Jolie outsmarted Pitt by reconciling with Voight because she added another one on her side.
However, it was not true because a source said Jolie and Voight have been working on their relationship for years. They have been in communication even before Pitt and Jolie’s divorce.
The outlet also claimed that Voight could testify against Angelina Jolie in her divorce case with Pitt. However, Voight set the record straight by denying it.
“I know nothing about that,” he said.
