Angelina Jolie’s Boyfriend Says Biological Parents Of “Orphan” Son Maddox “May Not Both Have Been Dead” Before The 2002 Adoption – .


div> ANGELINA Jolie’s boyfriend claimed that the biological parents of his “orphan” son Maddox “may not have died” before his adoption in 2002.

Sarath Mounh, a former aid worker who helped the actress adopt her eldest son, said he was not “100% sure” if Maddox’s parents were alive at the time of her adoption.

While running an NGO in Cambodia, Sarath became a close friend of the 46-year-old actress when she visited the Maddox home country.

According to DailyMail.com, Sarath was instrumental in Maddox’s adoption by signing legal documents claiming he was the biological father of Angelina’s eldest child to help get him approved more quickly by Cambodian courts. .

Although he is not Maddox’s biological father, it is not clear if Angelina is aware of this fact.

He told the outlet: “I’m not 100% sure Maddox was an orphan even though he came from an orphanage. At least one of the parents may have been alive at the time of his adoption. But I never asked these tough questions, no one did.

“It was happening a lot in Cambodia. Many babies were left in orphanages or sold by their parents because they could not afford to care for them.

At the time of Maddox’s adoption, the head of the human rights agency Licadho Kek Galibru investigated the adoption and said: “I am sure that this child was not a real orphan and did not been abandoned.

However, Angelina insisted that Maddox was an orphan at the time of her adoption and said, “I would never steal her child from a mother. I can only imagine how horrible that would be. “

POTENTIALLY UNETHICAL PRACTICES

The Hollywood star was among hundreds of American parents who used Lauryn Galindo to facilitate the adoption of Maddox from Cambodia, when she was apparently unaware of his potentially unethical practices.

Galindo and his employees are said to have worked as “baby recruiters” who allegedly attacked poor families in rural areas.

Sarath’s claims come after reports that filmmaker Elizabeth Jacobs will uncover the truth about Galindo’s adoptions in a new documentary she’s making titled The Stolen Children.

She will be traveling to Cambodia later in the year and hopes to get answers about her own adoption, which could help better understand hundreds of others around this time, including Maddox.

Jacobs, 21, is the same generation as Maddox, 19, and the circumstances of his own adoption in Cambodia remain unclear after his parents also used Galindo.

Between 1997 and 2001, at least half of all adoptions from Cambodia to the United States – about 800 out of 1,600 – went through the Seattle International Adoptions agency of Galindo and his sister Lynn Devin.

A year after Maddox’s adoption, Galindo and Devin were both charged, with Devin fined $ 150,000 for falsifying documents to obtain US visas for “orphans.”

Galindo was jailed for 18 months in 2004 for the same crime and money laundering, while she has since been released and lives in Hawaii.

GALINDO PARLE

When asked if any of her practices were unethical, she replied to The Sun, “Absolutely not. Every day I wake up and want to dedicate my body, my word, my mind, my actions, to doing my best to be a force for good. “

BRAD RECEIVES JOINT CUSTODY

The new claims come after Angelina’s ex Brad Pitt was awarded joint custody of their six children following a lengthy court battle – after filing for divorce in 2016.

The couple have three biological children, twins Vivienne and Knox, 12, and Shiloh, 15, as well as Maddox, Zahara, 16 and Pax, 17, who were adopted respectively from orphanages in Cambodia, Ethiopia and In Vietnam.

Angelina and Brad married in 2014, while their divorce was finalized in 2019.
