Zahara Jolie-Pitt has decided to reject her father’s surname. This became known just a couple of days ago. Nevertheless, internet users have already expressed their opinions about the heiress of Angelina and Brad. Moreover, serious verbal battles have erupted between them, as each commentator believes they have chosen the right side of the conflict. Details, as always, coming in the next few minutes.
Zahara Jolie-Pitt has declined her father’s surname.
It’s no secret that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were long considered one of the most beautiful couples in Hollywood. Importantly, the celebrities were also known for being part of a large family. Notably, in addition to their biological children Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox, the actors have adopted Maddox, Pax, and Zahara.
It seemed like there was no stronger family than the protagonists of our today’s story. However, the whole fairy tale came to an end during a private flight seven years ago. According to Angelina, Pitt became involved with alcohol, losing control of himself. It reached the point where the man not only struck his spouse but also one of their children.
Undoubtedly, a lot has happened since then. The children have also grown considerably. Some of them, having reached adulthood, can now make important decisions for themselves. For instance, it was recently revealed that Zahara Jolie-Pitt has opted out of her father’s surname. By the way, the young woman celebrated her eighteenth birthday back in January.
«My name is Zahara Marley Jolie.
But what about rejecting her father’s surname, you may ask. Well, it happened during her initiation into the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority at Spelman College. The 18-year-old daughter of Angelina took the stage during the ceremony and introduced herself before her speech, omitting any mention of Pitt. ‘My name is Zahara Marley Jolie. And I have traveled from the Golden State to a city full of angels — Los Angeles, California.
Of course, Zahara’s attitude towards one of her parents is clearly influenced by their divorce and years-long legal disputes. It’s also essential not to forget that child custody has been a significant issue in the Pitt and Jolie legal battles. Nevertheless, the man expressed incredible pride for his adopted daughter, who got into Spelman College. ‘I’m so proud of her. She’s so smart. And I know she’s going to do great things in college.
While Internet users have divided into two camps. Some assure that the girl made the right choice, while others consider her ungrateful. ‘I want people to respect her as an individual. No mention of the Pitt name. Period,’ one comment reads, while another asks, ‘How dare she?’
I wonder, whose side would you take on this matter? Should Zahara really erase Brad from her life, or is she influenced by her mother? Share your opinion with us in the comments.
