Estranged Hollywood couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt may lose custody of their adopted sons Maddox, 15, and Pax, 13.

Jolie and Pitt, who are currently battling for custody of their six children, will reportedly have to send back Maddox and Pax to their biological parents, reports

The biological mother of Pax, who was adopted by Jolie and Pitt from a Vietnam orphanage in 2007, will soon be released from a prison in Vietnam and wants to reunite with her son, reported, citing a source.

"I'm sure both Pitt and Jolie are freaking out over this. It's been a fear from day one that the biological parents of their adopted kids would resurface," the source said.

While Maddox's Cambodian parents are believed to have passed away, claims that his adoption was "brokered by a crooked agent" named Lauryn Galindo, who was later jailed for visa fraud and money laundering involving more than 800 adoptions.

Children's rights groups investigating Galindo believed Maddox's destitute mother sold her son for $100.

"The situation with Pax, and the increased fear over Maddox, is terrifying to Jolie and Pitt," the source said.

Jolie filed for a divorce from actor Pitt, her husband of two years and romantic partner since 2005, on September 20, signalling the end of one of Hollywood’s most glamorous and powerful couples.
