Jon Voight’s daughter Angelina prohibits him from seeing his grandchildren

Jon Voight is a father of two and grandfather of Angelina’s six kids. He got divorced from Angelina’s mother and left the family when Angelina was young. The truth behind their divorce is that Jon cheated on his ex-wife Marcheline. The father-of-two was an artist in residence at the University of California in Northridge. He was cast to play the role of Hamlet on the play, but he went ahead and cheated on his then-wife by hooking up with a very young actress named Stacy Pickren.

His daughter Angelina Jolie is still angry about all this with him. She believes that he was never a good role model and even if he is a grandfather to Angelina’s six kids, she doesn’t allow him to visit them.

A source claims that their relationship is still rocky,

“The bottom line is that Angelina just doesn’t like Jon and sees no reason why he deserves access to the kids. He was a horrible role model, and she’ll never forgive or forget the past,”

Jon seems fond of his grandchildren though. He was spotted talking about his grandchildren very fondly,

“Shiloh, oh boy, she’s a smart one, but she’s four years old, you can never tell what she does, her face lights up. They’re all smart. Z’s smart, they’re all smart I’ll tell you. “

He might be trying to make amends for his mistakes now because all the man wants to be loved by their family in the end.
