That’s just the tip of the iceberg, an insider told Us Weekly.

The outlet confirmed that Shiloh hired and paid for her own lawyer to handle the case.

Brad, 60, is said to be crushed by his daughter’s decision.

“Brad was devastated by this choice,” a source told the outlet.

“To him, it was more than a change of name – it was a symbol of a deeper estrangement that has been brewing for years.”

This isn’t the first time one of the Fight Club star’s children has spoken out against him or denounced his last name.

In November, Shiloh’s older sister, Zahara, introduced herself as Zahara Marley Jolie during a sorority event at Spelman College.

Then, in May, their youngest daughter, Vivienne, was listed as Vivienne Jolie in a Broadway playbill for The Outsiders.

Brad and Angelina called it quits in September 2016.

They are also parents to Maddox, 22; Pax, 20; and Vivienne’s twin brother Knox.

Although they have been separated for years, the couple continues to fight in court over custody and their winery, Chateau Miraval.

However, the children are said to have picked a side, and it doesn’t appear to be Brad’s.

“Sadly, Brad doesn’t have much of a relationship with his kids,” a second source told Us.

“He’s not ready to give up on them, but knowing they are dropping his name is upsetting.”

Brad Pitt’s Troubled History With his Children

Brad shares six children with his ex-wife Angelina Jolie.


Angelina adopts her first child, Maddox, on March 10.


Brad accompanies Angelina to Ethiopia to adopt her second child, Zahara, on July 5.

In December, Brad began the process of becoming the adoptive father of Angelina’s two kids.

In January, Angelina changed the kids’ names to Jolie-Pitt.


After staying quiet about their relationship, Angelina gave birth to a daughter, Shiloh, shared with Brad, on May 27.


Angelina and Brad adopt a son, Pax, and welcome twins Knox and Vivienne a year later.


Brad and Angelina married at their château in France on August 23.


Angelina filed for divorce from Brad on September 19.

The same month, Brad was accused of being physically and verbally abusive toward one of his children.

Brad also began attending Alcoholics Anonymous


On Father’s Day, Pax wrote on Instagram: “You time and time and again prove yourself to be a terrible and despicable person. You have no consideration or empathy toward your four youngest children who tremble in fear when in your presence.”


During a legal battle over their vineyard, Angelina claimed that Brad had grabbed and shaken her on a plane ride, and strangled one of their sons and struck another in the face.


The couple’s oldest son and daughter, Maddox and Zahara, stop using Brad’s last name in their day-to-day lives.

Vivienne also chooses to go by Jolie for her first major Broadway credit.

The day she turns 18, Shiloh makes a legal filing to officially drop Pitt from her last name.

Yet another told the magazine, “Brad’s putting on a brave face, but behind closed doors, he’s finding it extremely difficult to come to terms with [what’s happening].”

That same source told Us Weekly that Brad and Angelina’s kids have decided to distance themselves from their father out of loyalty to Angelina.

“They’ve struggled to forgive and connect with Brad since the divorce,” the source added.

“Their mom is the head of the household, and she’s raised them with love and selflessness their whole lives. Once Brad left, it was very hard for them to see him go to war with her.”

These comments come after insiders close to Brad claimed that his children changing their names was a reminder that he’s “lost” them.

“The reminders that he’s lost his children, is of course not easy for Brad. He loves his children and misses them. It’s very sad,” the source said.

“He’s still happy with Ines [de Ramon],” but the situation “pains him.”


Shiloh filed paperwork to have her name changed from Jolie-Pitt to Jolie last week, as soon as she turned 18.

No certain answer has been provided about Shiloh, or any of her siblings’ decision not to go by Pitt.

A security guard for Brad and Angelina has claimed, however, that the actress tried to turn her kids against their father.

In March, Brad stopped pursuing custody of his children and settled instead for visitation rights.

However, the couple remains locked in legal disputes over their French vineyard.

The couple called it quits in 2016 after 12 years together, with Angelina citing “irreconcilable differences” in their divorce papers.

In court papers revealed after the split, Angelina’s team claimed that Brad attacked his wife and two children on a plane in 2016 while under the influence of alcohol.

The FBI, as well as the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family, cleared Brad of the accusations, but some of his family members have spoken out against him. 

In a leaked private post from 2020, Brad’s son Pax called the actor a “world-class a***hole” and “despicable person.”

The Instagram post added that Brad made his kids “tremble in fear.”

Brad does not speak publicly often, if ever, about is family.
