Angelina Jolie’s son Maddox is returning from university in South Korea because of the COVID-19 crisis
Angelina Jolie’s eldest son Maddox is home from college earlier than expected due to the global coronavirus pandemic.
Maddox returned to the United States after his semester at Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea was abruptly canceled, according to a new report by People Magazine on Thursday.
In August, the 18-year-old arrived on the Korean campus for his first year of college to study biotechnology.

Maddox is back with his mom in Los Angeles and his five younger siblings Pax, 16, Zahara, 15, Shiloh, 13, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 11.
While he’s off in the near future, People reports spending his downtime on his Korean and Russian studies.
After Maddox left for the sacred halls, Jolie stumbled upon Entertainment tonight about the exciting new chapter of her son.
“I just sent one … I’m so proud of him,” said Jolie at the time. “I’m so excited, I feel my world is getting bigger as their world gets bigger. I learn so much from them and I love this phase. ‘

Jolie, 44, adopted Maddox in 2002 when he was just a few months old from an orphanage in Battambang, Cambodia, when she was married to actor Billy Bob Thornton.
Her now ex-husband Brad Pitt later adopted Maddox, as did older actresses Pax and Zahara.
This week, Angelina has done her best to do more than her part in helping underprivileged children whose access to school lunches was closed by school closings during the coronavirus pandemic.
She has given $ 1 million to the charity No Kid Hungry, which she says has distributed $ 2 million across 30 states to feed low-income children and their families.

“As of this week, more than a billion children worldwide are not attending school due to coronavirus-related closings,” Angelina, 44, said in a statement for Not a hungry child.
“Many children depend on the care and nutrition they receive during school hours, including nearly 22 million children in America who depend on food aid.”
Angelina, known for her philanthropy, added, “Kid Hungry is determined to reach out to as many of those kids as possible.”
Along with the Oscar winner, other big celebrities have thrown their support behind No Kid Hungry.

Last week, Jennifer Garner and Amy Adams launched a charity fundraiser and unveiled their initiative in a social media video.
In the joint clip, made during a video chat, Amy and Jennifer announced last Tuesday that they would be reading children’s books on Insta Stories to raise money.
Jennifer and Amy launched this Save With Stories venture to encourage donations to save Save The Children and No Kid Hungry.
They have attracted help from a range of other celebrities, including Camila Cabello, Lupita Nyong’o, Brie Larson, Noah Centineo and Beanie Feldstein.
