Shiloh Jolie-Pitt shocks with name change request

Shiloh, the daughter of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, celebrated her 18th birthday by filing documents to further distance herself from her father.

TMZ has reported that after turning 18 on May 27, Shiloh immediately requested an official name change and wants to drop the “Pitt” from her last name.

Pitt and Jolie hyphenated their last names and all six of their children were called Jolie-Pitt, but that is no longer the case.

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

Shiloh is not the first child to publicly distance themselves from their father. Her younger sister Vivienne, 15, also does not seem to be convinced about going around with her father’s surname.

In typical fashion of a famous daughter, Vivienne worked as a producer on her mother’s new Broadway play, The outsiderbut in the theater program she was only listed as Vivienne Jolie.

The couple’s 19-year-old daughter, Zahara, also gained notoriety after a video circulated showing her calling herself Zahara Jolie when she joined a college sorority.

It’s not just that Pitt’s daughters are dropping his last name. His eldest son, Maddox, also shows disdain for his father.

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

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

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

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

The distancing from her famous father came after an alleged airplane incident in 2016 in which Jolie claimed Pitt was drinking and became physically violent and verbally abusive.

Jolie filed for divorce in 2016. Although both are legally single, the couple is still fighting in court over custody agreements and property disputes in 2024.

Both remain relatively silent about the events, but there is endless speculation.

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

The two came together in 2004 after starring together in the blockbuster Mr and Mrs SmithWhen they met, Pitt was still married to Jennifer Anniston and the couple separated shortly afterwards.

Despite the intense scrutiny and tight schedule, Jolie has always stressed that she is not the “other woman.”

For years they were considered the “most beautiful couple in the world.” As a couple they adopted two children and had four biological children. It seemed like they had the perfect marriage until everything fell apart in 2016.

In 2020, Jolie said Vogue India that she gave up her marriage for her children.

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