Continuing their stay in the Big Apple, Hollywood supercouple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie treated their brood of children to another day of family fun in New York City on Saturday (August 25).
After a trip to Lee's art store and a city hot-dog cart the previous day, the Jolie-Pitt's headed straight for the carousel upon arriving at Central Park. Along on the trip were adopted children Pax, Maddox and Zahara, with daughter Shiloh nowhere to be seen.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie made a stand against all of those claiming the couple to be on troubled waters by taking a family outing in Chicago yesterday (August 18). The funny thing is, troubled waters actually ended up cutting their day short.
On what started as a beautiful Chicago afternoon, the entire Jolie-Pitt clan made their way down to the Windy city's air and water display. Angelina happened to be taking advantage of a much-needed day off from the filming of her new movie, Wanted.
When Brad Pitt had a “harmless lunch” with ex-wife Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie pretty much lost it. And to add insult to injury, Pitt took the couple’s daughter Shiloh with him. Bad move.
Apparently Angelina was very vocal about her disapproval of Pitt’s visit with the former Friends star. "Angelina went totally ballistic. She rarely gets so angry. She was shouting so hard at Brad that the veins were bulging in her neck. She told him in no uncertain terms that they were finished if he took Shiloh anywhere near Jennifer again," said a source close to the couple.
If you adopt a child as your own, you want it to be as authentic as possible. For Angelina Jolie that includes a name change for her Vietnamese adoptee. With Brad Pitt a part of the picture, Jolie is seeking to change Pax’s last name to Jolie-Pitt according to a Santa Monica Court.
Being that Jolie and Pitt are not officially married, it was difficult for them to adopt the child, given that Vietnamese law frowns on unwed couples’ adoption. That being so, Angelina was the sole adopter of Pax. But now that they're back Stateside, she has applied to have Brad's surname added too – much the same as with her other two adopted children, Maddox and Zahara.
With new family members being added on a regular basis, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt is being dubbed "The Forgotten One". Shiloh, the daughter of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, seems to have not only been dropped in the tabloid headlines, but may be getting the cold shoulder from her mother as well.
According to a recent Life and Style Weekly report, friends of the couple were said to be concerned that Angelina neglects Shiloh and favors her adopted children - five-year-old Cambodian son Maddox, three-year-old Vietnamese son Pax and two-year-old Ethiopian daughter Zahara.
In what could be the beginning of a "nest egg" for the newest member of the Jolie-Pitt clan, Angelina Jolie is rumored to be receiving a whopping $2 million for photos of her newly adopted son, Pax Thien.
According to Radar magazine, among others, Angelina has agreed to sell pictures of her new son to People magazine for between $1.75 million and $2 million.
