Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitts daughter files paperwork to remove fathers name

Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt, the daughter of Hollywood stars Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, has taken a significant step in her personal life. On her 18th birthday, May 27, she filed a petition in Los Angeles County Superior Court to legally change her name to Shiloh Nouvel Jolie. This move marks a notable moment for the third-eldest child of the famous former couple.

Shiloh, who was born in Swakopmund, Namibia, in 2006, is known for her voice acting role in the film “Kung Fu Panda 3.” She is the first among her siblings to seek a legal name change, although some of her brothers and sisters have already stopped using their father’s last name publicly. Shiloh’s siblings include Maddox, Pax, Zahara, and twins Knox and Vivienne.

The decision to drop “Pitt” from her name comes amidst ongoing legal battles between her parents. Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt in September 2016, but the divorce proceedings have yet to be finalized. The couple, who married in August 2014, have been embroiled in various lawsuits over shared business ventures and properties, including a winery in France.

The legal disputes between Jolie and Pitt have been highly publicized. In October 2022, Jolie accused Pitt of being emotionally and physically abusive towards her and their children. These allegations, which Pitt has strongly denied, were initially made during a custody battle and later emerged in a cross-complaint by Jolie. The claims were part of a redacted FBI report and were aired during a closed-door trial, where a judge initially granted Pitt 50-50 custody of the children. However, an appeals court later disqualified the private judge for not disclosing potential conflicts of interest, nullifying the custody decision.

Shiloh’s name change petition is a personal decision that reflects her desire to align more closely with her mother. It also highlights the ongoing complexities in the Jolie-Pitt family dynamics. As the legal battles between her parents continue, Shiloh’s move to change her name is a significant step in her journey towards independence and self-identity.
