Shiloh Jolie-Pitt shocks with name change request

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s daughter, Shiloh, celebrated her 18th birthday by filing papers to further divorce her father.

TMZ reported that after Shiloh turned 18 on May 27, she immediately requested an official name change and wants to drop Pitt from her last name.

Pitt and Jolie combined their surnames and all six of their children were called Jolie-Pitt, but no longer.

If approved, she will use only her mother’s last name and will be known only as Shiloh Jolie.

Shiloh is not the first child to publicly distance himself from his father. Her younger sister Vivienne, 15, also doesn’t seem thrilled to be walking around with her dad’s last name.

As a typical celebrity daughter, Vivienne worked as a producer on her mother’s new Broadway play. Outsidersbut she was only credited as Vivienne Jolie on the poster.

Similarly, their daughter Zahara, 19, went viral after a video made the rounds showing what Zahara Jolie was called when she pledged her sorority in college.

It’s not just that Pitt’s daughters are ditching his last name. His eldest son Maddox also showed contempt for his father.

In November 2023, a story that 22-year-old Maddox posted on his private account was leaked on Instagram.

He posted a photo of his father holding an Oscar and then declared that he was a “terrible” person.

“Happy Father’s Day to this world class shell. You prove time and time again that you are a horrible and vile person,” he wrote.

“You will never understand the damage you have done to my family because you are incapable of doing it.”

The split from their famous father came after an alleged incident on a plane where Jolie claimed Pitt had been drinking and became physically violent and verbally abusive in 2016.

Jolie filed for divorce in 2016. Although they are both married to each other, the couple in 2024 is still struggling with a custody agreement and property disputes in court.

Both remained relatively tight-lipped about what happened, but the speculation was endless.

Their relationship was one of the most famous in the world.

They got together in 2004 after working together in a hit movie Mr and Mrs Smith. Pitt was still married to Jennifer Anniston when they met, and the couple broke up soon after.

Despite the intense scrutiny and tight schedule, Jolie has always maintained that she is not the ‘other woman’.

For many years they were called “the most beautiful couple in the world”. As a couple, they adopted two children together and had four biological children and seemed to have the perfect marriage until it all blew up in 2016.

In 2020, Jolie said Vogue India that she left the marriage for her children.

“I divorced for the welfare of my family. Some have taken advantage of my silence and children see lies about themselves in the media, but I remind them that they know their own truth and their own wisdom. These are six very brave, very strong young people,” she said.
