Brad Pitt’s daughter Shiloh requests to DROP his surname on 18th birthday – amid his ongoing divorce battle with Angelina Jolie

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's daughter, Shiloh, has officially requested to drop 'Pitt' from her surname in court documents obtained by TMZ on Thursday. 

The dancer filed the paperwork on her 18th birthday which took place on Monday, May 27 and has asked that her new legal name be Shiloh Jolie. 

The action comes shortly after it was revealed that the Bullet Train actor, 60, wants to repair his 'broken' bond with the 18-year-old. 

According to the outlet, his other children: Vivienne, Zahara and Maddox – whom he shares with ex Angelina Jolie – also reportedly don't use Pitt as their surname, although they haven't made filings to legally change their names. 

Shiloh's request has yet to be approved due to filing the documents just days earlier on Memorial Day.

Brad and Angelina share biological children Shiloh as well as twins Knox and Vivienne, 15, and three adopted children: Maddox, 22, Pax, 20 and also Zahara, 19. 

The pair began dating after Pitt and then-wife, Jennifer Aniston, announced their divorce in 2005. 

The two later tied the knot in 2014, with the Maleficent actress filing for divorce in 2016 after only two years of marriage. Three years later in 2019, Brad and Angelina were declared legally single. 

However, the stars are still embroiled in an ongoing divorce battle and the actor reportedly has a strained relationship with this children. 

DailyMail.com revealed earlier this month that the couple's former bodyguard had accused Jolie of trying to poison their kids' bond with their father. 

A source close to the star recently told DailyMail.com that the actor is 'confident' he can strengthen his relationship with budding dancer, Shiloh, following her 18th birthday. 

The insider explained the reasoning is because she is now legally an adult, and therefore free to make her own decisions about the time they spend together.

'Now that Shiloh is 18, she can make up her own mind as far as how she wants her relationship with her father to develop.' 

According to the outlet, his other children: Vivienne, Zahara and Maddox - whom he shares with ex Angelina Jolie - also reportedly don't use Pitt as their surname, although they haven't made filings to legally change their names; former couple seen in 2014 in Hollywood

The source went on to say that since the couple split, the actress has made sure their children have had 'limited involvement' with their father. 

'It is still that way with the underage ones, but with Shiloh that is no longer Angie's choice,' they continued. 'If Shiloh chooses to have limited contact with her dad, that is her decision.'

The source said that Pitt would still 'love her unconditionally,' no matter what she chose to do.

'The difference between now and [a few] days ago [before her birthday] is that Shiloh makes the choice,' they pointed out.

The insider continued saying that now he can contact his daughter without repercussions from Jolie.

'Everyone is confident that they will, in time, rekindle the bond that was broken by the divorce,' they said confidently. 'Keeping Shiloh from Brad is no longer an option for Angelina.'

Meanwhile, a second source told DailyMail.com that Brad would 'never stand down' from his duties as a father and will 'always' be just a phone call away if his children want to get a hold of him.

'That is just the maturity he has within himself and the guy Brad is and always has been,' they explained.

The insider continued: 'As the kids get older and are able to make more decisions for themselves, if it is Shiloh or anyone else, if those decisions pose a positive or negative outlook on the father he wants to be, he understands that they are adults and can decide what they want to do.'

The source declared that Pitt was 'first and foremost' about being there for his kids.

'Angie can make them think differently but the truth is, Brad always wants them to know that he has their back,' they said, adding the truth 'always seems to find a way to find itself to the forefront.'

'Brad never wants to regret, so when he is 70, 80, or 90, he would always love to see his kids and have a relationship with them.'

'He would love Shiloh to start making her own decisions and him to be in the mix for her future, so he just has to see what happens and hope for the best.'

DailyMail.com has contacted representatives for both Pitt and Jolie for comment.

The exes have since been embroiled in not only a contentious custody battle since they split, but also have also argued over the circumstances under which their relationship ended and their ongoing business affairs.

Earlier in May, a source alleged the Hollywood actress of trying to drive a wedge between her estranged husband and their six kids in the aftermath of their split, according to court filings lodged at LA Superior Court.

In an explosive declaration seen by DailyMail.com, a ex-bodyguard for the couple, former British SAS solider Tony Webb, claimed he was informed by his own contractors that Jolie was pushing for her children to avoid Pitt when she had custody of them.

In April, DailyMail.com reported that the actress and mother-of-six accused her 60-year-old estranged spouse of being physically and emotionally abusive before the private jet incident in 2016. 

Pitt has denied all allegations of physical abuse and was not charged following an FBI probe into the incident on the flight. 

In March this year, DailyMail.com reported that the couple was finally approaching the finish line in their epic legal war, with an end expected by the summer after the actor reportedly dropped his pursuit seeking shared custody.

While Pitt had originally sought a 50/50 arrangement relating to their six kids, an insider revealed that he was no longer contesting the matter. 

That means that Jolie would retain primary physical custody of the children and he would have visitation rights.

Since Pitt and Jolie's split, the Fight Club actor has since sparked up a romance with Ines de Ramon – with the pair first being linked in November 2022. 

The star and the jewelry executive have reportedly moved in together, and a source told People in February that the actor 'is happy to live with her too. They were spending a lot of time at Brad's.' 

'It only made sense for her to move in. Their relationship is serious. This is Brad's first girlfriend since the divorce. He didn't settle and it's paying off. He loves dating Ines.'
