Shiloh Jolie-Pitt Drops “Pitt” from Her Name on 18th Birthday

A Family Divided

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s daughter Shiloh celebrated her 18th birthday by legally filing to drop the “Pitt” from her surname. This move follows a growing trend among the former couple’s children to distance themselves from their famous father.

A Pattern Emerges

  • Last weekend, the Playbill for “The Outsiders” listed daughter Vivienne, 15, simply as “Vivienne Jolie”
  • Six months ago, daughter Zahara, 19, introduced herself as “Zahara Marley Jolie” when joining a sorority
  • Reports suggest son Maddox, 22, doesn’t use “Pitt” on unofficial documents

Strained Relationship with Father

While the reasons are unconfirmed, the name changes hint at strained relationships between Pitt and his children:

“You have no consideration or empathy toward your 4 youngest children who tremble in fear when in your presence.” – Alleged quote from son Pax in 2020

The custody battle after Jolie filed for divorce in 2016 was highly publicized and contentious.

Seeking Independence

As the kids reach adulthood, these name changes could represent their desire to forge independent identities separate from the Pitt name and its associations. Only time will tell if permanent legal name changes follow for all six children.
