Shiloh Jolie-Pitt files to have ‘Pitt’ removed from her surname on her 18th birthday

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were once two halves of one of the most high-profile marriages in the world, but these days relations between them have soured to the point of undeniable animosity.

Since their 2019 divorce, the superstars, once collectively dubbed ‘Brangelina’ by the press, have been involved in legal battles and media-fueled spats, and a string of allegations have been made in recent times.

As recently as April of this year were papers submitted by Jolie to the Los Angeles Superior Court accusing Pitt of physical abuse – something he has vehemently denied – while the former couple are still at odds over the sale of a French winery they purchased while together.

Only days ago it was reported that one of Angelina and Brad’s children, Vivienne, had apparently elected to drop ‘Pitt’ from her last name, and now the word is that Vivienne’s sister, Shiloh, has moved to do the same thing, but in a more official way.

As per TMZ, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt celebrated her 18th birthday earlier this week, and immediately moved to remove ‘Pitt’ from her name.

The outlet say that Shiloh filed paperwork to request a legal name change, and from here on out her name will simply be Shiloh Jolie.

The fact that the paperwork was filed on Monday – the very day she turned 18 – means that the name change was amongst the first things she wanted to do as a legal adult.

TMZ say the name change hasn’t gone through yet, but it’s only a matter of time before it does. Shiloh is one of Jolie and Pitt’s six-strong brood, but it appears that she’s not the only one who appears to have strained relations with her father.

As mentioned above, Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, 15, made headlines recently when her name was listed in the official Playbill for The Outsiders, a show she’d helped her mother produce, and went down in the records as Vivienne Jolie, as opposed to Vivienne Jolie-Pitt.

Meanwhile, 19-year-old Zahara – one of Angelina and Brad’s three adopted children – reportedly also goes by Zahara Jolie these days, and TMZ say that the oldest of the siblings, Maddox, 22, doesn’t use ‘Pitt’ in his surname either.

As stands, Shiloh is the only one of the children to legally move to have their name changed, but the overall message appears fairly clear: all of them are siding with their mother as concerns the ongoing discontent between their parents.

Son Pax, readers may remember, lambasted Pitt in an Instagram post from 2020 that resurfaced recently.

You have made the lives of those closest to me a constant hell,” Pax allegedly wrote on his private Instagram account.


“You may tell yourself and the world whatever you want, but the truth will come to light someday.

He finished: “So Happy Father’s Day, you f*****g awful human being.”
