Angelina Jolie's Son Maddox Is Reportedly Prioritizing Sister Zahara's College Move Over His 21st Birthday

It's hard to believe that Maddox Jolie-Pitt, son of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, turns 21 on August 5th. Now that he's an adult (and of legal drinking age), you'd think he'll be partying with his friends — well, the weekend is more about his sister Zahara than him.
His 17-year-old sister is reportedly moving into her dorm at Spelman College this weekend, so Maddox is putting aside most of the celebrations to be a great big brother and help her settle in. A source told Entertainment Tonight that the family will honor his milestone birthday on Friday and then focus on Zahara for the rest of the weekend. It's so sweet of him to make his younger sister happy in her new home.

With a tumultuous divorce and custody case, Maddox may have become the male figure in his siblings' lives. Maybe that's why he's okay with his birthday weekend being all about his sister.
