Shiloh, the daughter of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt shocked everyone after she changed her name JUST as she turned 18, the teenager revealed her NEW

At 18, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt has reportedly taken a bold step by filing legal documents to alter her name. She is the third child in the family to publicly express this change.

Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, who turned 18 on May 27, has filed legal documents to drop her father Brad Pitt’s surname and use her mother, Angelina Jolie’s surname. She now wishes to be known simply as “Shiloh Jolie,” making this one of her first actions as an adult.

TMZ recently reported that Shiloh filed the paperwork on Memorial Day, which coincided with her birthday. The request for the name change has yet to be officially granted, but it is expected to be a matter of time before it becomes official.

Shiloh’s decision follows a trend within the family, as her sisters, Vivienne and Zahara, have also reportedly omitted “Pitt” on separate occasions.

According to People in May 2024, the Playbill for the musical “The Outsiders” lists her as “Vivienne Jolie,” notably without “Pitt.” This name change marks a significant step in Vivienne’s evolving public identity.

In the musical, Vivienne works as a production assistant, and her mother, Angelina, is the producer. She often joins her mom during the musical’s promotional tour.

In November 2023, Zahara joined Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. at Spelman College. A video shared by Essence showed Zahara’s new sorority sisters cheering as she took center stage. She proudly announced, “My name is Zahara Marley Jolie,” seemingly dropping her dad’s last name before dancing and flipping her hair.

This name change comes amidst ongoing legal battles between Angelina and Brad. The couple has been embroiled in disputes over their shared ownership of a French winery and allegations of abuse, placing considerable emotional and financial strain on the family.

Angelina filed for divorce in 2016, and the court declared them legally single in 2019. They established a joint custody arrangement in 2021, which remains a significant aspect of their post-divorce legal struggles.

Adding to the couple’s legal drama, earlier court documents suggest Angelina Jolie may have contributed to the strained relationship between Brad and their children.

Recent claims against Angelina surfaced through Tony Webb, owner of SRS Global, a security company that provided her with personal protection from 2000 to 2020. Webb shared insights based on his two decades of experience working with Jolie.

“One of the two individuals, Ross Foster, specified that he intended to testify regardless of the NDA if he received a court subpoena,” Webb stated. He further revealed disturbing details about the potential testimony.

“When Mr. Foster told me this, he also told me that if asked, he would testify about statements he overheard that Ms. Jolie made to the children, encouraging them to avoid spending time with Mr. Pitt during custody visits,” he claimed.

This revelation sparked a fierce reaction across social media platforms, with many expressing dismay at Angelina. Others showed concern over the potential impact on the Jolie-Pitt children.

“The fact that she cannot see the harm this is doing to their kids is just shocking,” one person commented. This was echoed by another commenter who noted, “It’s probably why Shiloh is moving in with her father now… She’s realized her mother is vindictive and has been trying to alienate them from Brad for years.”

One called Angelina’s alleged move “the worse possible thing a person can do… alienate their children from a parent.” Meanwhile, another declared “Shame on her.”

The debate over Angelina’s actions led some to reflect on the cyclical nature of such behavior, attributing it to her tumultuous upbringing. “Her childhood was similar from what I read. Maybe she can’t break that perpetual cycle or doesn’t want to,” one claimed.

Despite the public’s critical perception, Angelina has continually strived to embody the role of a nurturing, attentive mother. This is, a commitment deeply rooted in the lessons taught by her own mom.

In a candid revelation made back in 2011, Angelina shared insights into her parenting approach, which is heavily influenced by the relationship she cherished with her mother. Angelina emphasized the importance of not just being a parent but also a friend to her children.

She highlighted the invaluable connection she experienced through open communication and shared activities with her mother. This foundation has guided her in fostering a similar bond with her children, ensuring that despite their diverse backgrounds, they feel united as a family.

Remembering her mother’s gentle spirit and unwavering generosity, Angelina aspires to emulate these traits. Her aim is clear: to be as good a mother to her children as her mother was to her.
