Vivienne Jolie, daughter of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, makes a bold move by omitting 'Pitt' from her last name, highlighting the ongoing family tensions and her burgeoning role in the arts.

AceShowbiz - In a noteworthy development, Vivienne, the 15-year-old daughter of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, has recently dropped the "Pitt" from her last name. This change was evident in the Playbill for the new musical "The Outsiders", in which Vivienne participated as an assistant producer alongside her mother. While it remains unclear if this name change has been legalized, it undeniably signifies the evolving dynamics within the Jolie-Pitt family.

Vivienne isn't the first of her siblings to alter their last names. Last November, her sister Zahara introduced herself as "Zahara Marley Jolie" during a sorority event at Spelman College. Likewise, Shiloh, who is soon turning 18, was tagged solely as "Jolie" by her dance teacher on Instagram. These actions underscore an apparent distancing from their father, Brad Pitt.

The Jolie-Pitt family has not been without its challenges, especially since Angelina filed for divorce in 2016 and sought sole physical custody of their six children. Reports have frequently highlighted the strain in Brad's relationship with his children, as his alleged drinking issue and violence played a part in the couple's split.

In one incident, Brad and Angelina got into a physical altercation on a plane. In the 2022 documents filed by Angelina in a cross complaint as part of a legal battle over Chateau Miraval, she revealed shocking details about their fight, alleging the "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" actor "grabbed" the actress "by the head."

He allegedly lunged at one of his children when they came to defend their mother, prompting her to grab him from behind to stop him from hurting the child. The documents claimed, "To get Jolie off his back, Pitt threw himself backwards into the airplane's seats injuring Jolie's back and elbow."

"The children rushed in and all bravely tried to protect each other. Before it was over, Pitt choked one of the children and struck another in the face. Some of the children pleaded with Pitt to stop. At one point, he poured beer on Jolie; at another, he poured beer and red wine on the children."

Brad Pitt has refuted the allegations and since claimed he's been sober. Amidst the couple's legal spat, some of their children wanted to testify against him in court but the judge would not let them. It was only recently that his daughter Shiloh was said to want to move in with him - a report that remains unverified.

A source stated that Brad was hopeful about mending these relationships despite prolonged periods of estrangement. However, allegations and legal battles have only complicated matters. Recently, court documents revealed claims from a security guard that Angelina allegedly encouraged the children to avoid their father, which she vehemently denied.

Despite familial conflicts, Vivienne is making strides in the world of theatre. Her involvement in "The Outsiders" is a testament to her passion for the arts. Angelina Jolie expressed her pride in working with Vivienne, stating, "Viv is a young artist who focuses on her support of others."

This was evident during the musical's opening night, where the mother-daughter duo was present, Vivienne sporting a chic denim jumpsuit and Angelina stunning in a bronze cape and silk dress. Meanwhile, Brad Pitt was nowhere to be seen at the musical.

Vivienne's roots in the entertainment industry aren't new. At just five years old, she played young Princess Aurora alongside her mother in Disney's "Maleficent". Additionally, she has appeared in Vogue and shown a keen interest in various activities including karate and philanthropy, often mirroring her mother's humanitarian aspirations.

Brad Pitt, on the other hand, is reportedly heartbroken by his children's decision to drop his last name. Sources suggest that he perceives this move as an indication of his children's desire to distance themselves from him.

As Vivienne continues to carve her path in the arts, the evolving family dynamics remain a subject of public fascination. With each member pursuing their individual interests and coping with the past, their story is a striking example of how fame and family intersect in complex ways.
