The relationships between Brad Pitt and his children are, to say the least, complicated. Zahara and Vivienne have already announced that they no longer want to bear their father’s name. Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt has taken it a step further. For her 18th birthday, on May 27, 2024, she asked the Superior Court of Los Angeles County to remove the name Pitt from her surname.

Shiloh now wishes to be called Shiloh Nouvel Jolie. She is the first of the siblings to make such a request before the court. A close source indicates that Angelina Jolie cannot oppose this decision, as Shiloh is now of legal age.

Shiloh has hired her own lawyer and paid for it herself, which prevents Angelina Jolie from communicating with him. Brad Pitt had hoped to get closer to his daughter as she grew up, but the opposite is happening.

The relationships between Brad Pitt and his children have deteriorated since a serious confrontation with his ex-wife in 2016. Angelina Jolie accused Brad Pitt of physical assault during a private jet flight. Other accusations mention violence towards his children. After a long legal battle, Brad Pitt had obtained joint custody, which was later annulled.

Shiloh, a dance student, has already removed the name Pitt from her social media profiles. Her decision to change her name marks a new stage in family tensions. Vivienne and Zahara have already taken similar steps by using only the name Jolie. Pax, their brother, publicly criticized Brad Pitt in November 2023, further exacerbating family tensions.
