After Zahara, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's 15-year-old daughter Vivienne drops 'Pitt' from her name

Earlier this year, Angelina Jolie's eldest daughter Zahara turned her back on her adopted father Brad Pitt as she dropped Pitt from her last name.  Zahara, who is currently attending college, now answers to Zahara Marley Jolie rather than her Jolie-Pitt surname after she was adopted in 2005, reported

Zahara was adopted from an orphanage in Ethiopia's capital Addis Ababa by Jolie and Pitt in 2005, when she was six months old. As per, Zahara is the second of the six children that Brad and Angelina share, which also include Maddox, Shiloh, Pax, and twins Knox and Vivienne.

Following in the steps of her elder sister, 15-year-old Vivienne has also dropped Pitt from her last name and sided with her mother in the ongoing family row.  In the Playbill credits for The Outsiders, a Broadway play she assisted with earlier this year, her name appeared as Vivienne Jolie, according to reports from OK Magazine.

Despite this decision by his kids, Brad Pitt has reportedly been maintaining a good relationship with his children. According to a source in InTouch, Pitt has been meeting his kids regularly and making efforts to rebuild their relationship.

In a startling turn of events, Hollywood star Angelina Jolie has made damning allegations against her ex-husband Brad Pitt, accusing him of physical abuse before the infamous 2016 plane incident that sent shockwaves through Hollywood. According to court documents obtained by E! online, filed on April 4, Jolie asserts that Pitt's abusive behaviour had been ongoing before the incident, marking a distressing escalation when he purportedly turned his aggression towards their children during the flight from France to Los Angeles.

It was this moment that prompted Jolie to take decisive action and file for divorce, leaving Pitt behind. Since their legal separation in 2019, Pitt and Jolie have been embroiled in a bitter custody battle over their six children, whose well-being hangs precariously amidst the tumultuous proceedings.

The legal saga extends beyond their strife, delving into the realm of property disputes with the couple's French winery, Chateau Miraval, at its centre. What began as a romantic venture spiralled into acrimony as Pitt accused Jolie of unauthorised actions regarding the estate, leading to a flurry of lawsuits and counterclaims. With each new revelation, the public is afforded a glimpse into the complex web of emotions and conflicts that have defined Pitt and Jolie's post-divorce landscape.

Zahara, who is currently a sophomore at college, has been seen in a video from her sorority induction where she states: "My name is Zahara Marley Jolie. And (I) landed all the way from the Golden State in the city full of angels: Los Angeles, California."

The clip has been shared online, with social media users quick to spot her choice of surname. Writing on Twitter, one person shared: "I wasn’t gonna say anything, but I definitely peeped that Zahara left Pitt off her last name". Another wrote: "Oh Zahara said her last name is Jolie, not Jolie-Pitt". A third said: "I need people to respect her as an individual who just said her name out loud ZAHARA. MARLEY. JOLIE. Zero mention of the name PITT. Period.”

Angelina is now said to be "healing" after her split from Brad, with the couple parting ways in 2016 after just two years of marriage.
