Brad Pitt reportedly ‘upset’ that daughter filed to drop ‘Pitt’ from her last name

A source close to the 60-year-old Oscar winner said his erasure from his daughter’s life is just another indication that he has ‘lost his children,’ according to People.

‘He’s aware and upset that Shiloh dropped his last name,’ the source claimed. ‘He’s never felt more joy than when she was born. He always wanted a daughter.’

Notably, Pitt was already in the process of legally adopting a daughter who had been a part of his life for months before he and his then-partner Angelina Jolie, 49, had announced she was pregnant with Shiloh in January 2006.

Jolie had traveled to Ethiopia to adopted her first daughter Zahara, 19, in July 2005, and Pitt had come with her on the trip.

He was reported to be in the process of becoming Zahara’s adopted father in December 2005, a month before he and Jolie announced her pregnancy.

‘The reminders that he’s lost his children, is of course not easy for Brad,’ the source continued. ‘He loves his children and misses them. It’s very sad.’

They added that the distance between Pitt and his six children — Maddox, 22; Pax, 20; Zahara; Shiloh; and twins Knox and Vivienne, 15 — ‘pains him.’

However, they noted that ‘he’s still happy with Ines [de Ramon],’ his girlfriend.

Another source described as close to Pitt told the publication that the Tree Of Life star ‘still loves all of his kids tremendously.’

‘This whole process has been very hard for the whole family,’ they added.

If Shiloh’s request is granted — and there is no indication that it would not be — she will subsequently go simply by ‘Shiloh Jolie,’ rather than her original full name, ‘Shiloh Jolie-Pitt.’
