Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s split in 2016 led to a contentious legal dispute, drawing comparisons to the high-profile case of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard. Rumors swirled that their son Maddox chose to drop Pitt’s surname, and now it seems their daughter Zahara is taking a similar path as she embarks on her college journey.
The origin of the conflict between Jolie and Pitt reportedly stems from an incident on a private jet in 2016. Jolie accused Pitt of physical abuse towards her and their children, with a particular incident involving Maddox prompting her to file for divorce. The exact details of these allegations remain largely private.
Zahara Jolie’s recent induction into a sorority at Spelman College, a historically black institution, has garnered attention online. During a ceremony for the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority, Zahara introduced herself without mentioning her father’s surname, sparking discussions among fans. Essence shared a video of her introduction, highlighting her confidence and eloquence.
This development follows previous reports that Maddox Jolie had testified against Pitt in court regarding the domestic violence allegations. Maddox, now an adult, reportedly prefers to use ‘Jolie’ in his official documents, distancing himself from his father, the star of “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.”
Speculation is growing about whether the children of ‘Brangelina’ are aligning more with their mother in the wake of the divorce and legal battles.
Angelina Jolie, in August 2022, announced Zahara’s decision to attend Spelman College. A heartwarming video shared by the college’s Vice President of Student Affairs captured Jolie’s emotional farewell to her daughter, indicating the strong bond between them.
