Brad Pitt’s daughter Shiloh waited four years to reveal her father’s name, after a disagreement during a custody battle when she was just 14 years old.

Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, whose mother is Angelina Jolie, filed paperwork to remove Pitt’s name on Monday, May 30, three days after her 18th birthday, the earliest she could do so.

The Mail revealed last week that it had hired (and paid) its own lawyer to deal with the matter.

A source close to the process told me that the move was “related to the (alleged) history of abuse” by her father and also to “the violation of Shiloh’s victim’s rights.”

I am told that she blames her father for the legal measures that meant she was unable to testify about her wishes regarding custody.

She also couldn’t talk about what happened on that fateful 2016 flight, which caused the end of her parents’ marriage, even though she wanted to.

Under the Crime Victims’ Rights Act, victims of federal crimes have rights that include: ‘The right not to be excluded from any public judicial proceeding, unless the court, after receiving clear and convincing evidence, determines that the victim’s testimony would be materially altered. whether the victim heard other testimony in that proceeding.’

The issue of custody arrangements for Jolie-Pitt’s six children (Pax, Maddox, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne) was decided during six months of closed-door hearings, between December 2020 and May 2021.

Jolie requested that the children testify, but was unsuccessful.

Judge John Oudekirk ruled that custody should be 50-50 and refused to hear evidence from the children, who had already undergone a therapeutic evaluation, which the court was told.

The sentence was later overturned in 2021, after Jolie appealed, claiming that the judge had a business connection with one of Pitt’s lawyers.

A source says: ‘The name change dates back to the custody battle and Shiloh’s belief that her rights as a victim were violated.

“Shiloh believed he had the right, as a crime victim, to testify, and he was prevented from doing so.”

I am told there are no plans for her to take further legal action related to her father. It is not known if the younger siblings, Knox and Vivienne, will follow in her footsteps when they turn 18 in July 2026.

There doesn't seem to be any chance of reconciliation between Shiloh and her father, Brad Pitt.

Since the split, the children – Maddox, 22, Pax, 20, Zahara, 19, Shiloh (pictured), 18, and Knox and Vivienne, 15 – have formed a tight gang of seven with their mother.

Last month there were suggestions in supermarket magazines that Shiloh planned to move in with her father as soon as she could.

Other stories suggested that movie star Pitt was “hopeful” to reconcile with his daughter now that she is an adult.

However, the truth is that there does not seem to be any possibility of that happening, nor of a rapprochement with any of the children, after the famous confrontation in the air.

In an FBI report on the incident, published in 2022, Jolie accused Pitt of physical assault while the family was on a flight to California, which he has always denied.

Pitt was also accused of attacking one of the children on the plane, but was cleared of any wrongdoing by Los Angeles police.

Son Pax previously said in an Instagram post that the four youngest children, including Shiloh, ‘tremble with fear’ in the presence of their father.

Since the split, the children (Maddox, 22, Pax, 20, Zahara, 19, Shiloh, 18, and Knox and Vivienne, 15) have formed a tight gang of seven with their mother. Last year he called them “the closest people to me in my life,” adding, “We had to heal.” There are things we needed to heal from.’

While Shiloh has repeatedly walked red carpets with Jolie, neither she nor her siblings have done the same for Pitt. “This is the result of textbook parental alienation, and it is a great sadness in your life,” they told me. “They’ve spent years and years (Angelina) telling and retelling the same lies (about Brad), and the reality is that it has alienated the kids, and the reality is that it bothers Brad. He cares about all of them. “It’s devastating.”

His spokesperson said this week that he will not comment on his children.

Zahara, a student at Spelman College, Atlanta, no longer uses the name Pitt.

Vivienne has been working with Angelina this spring on a musical, The Outsiders, in New York and is credited in the show simply as ‘Vivienne Jolie.’

Maddox and Pax have not used Pitt’s name for years.
