In a recent development that has Hollywood buzzing, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, the daughter of famed actors Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, has expressed a desire to leave her mother's residence and live with her father. This news comes amid Brad Pitt's protracted legal struggle with Angelina Jolie and the tension it has caused within their family, which includes Maddox (22), Pax (20), Zahara (19), and 15-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.

Brad Pitt, an acclaimed actor known for his roles in major films including the 2022 hit "Bullet Train," was visibly moved in a rare display of emotion when discussing Shiloh's dancing talent, a topic that caught the public's eye following a viral video of the teenager.

"It brings a tear to the eye," Pitt said, praising his daughter's grace. Despite the tumult following his 2016 separation from Jolie, Pitt's bond with Shiloh, who is nearing 18, remains strong. Sources close to the family report that Shiloh's decision to move to Brad's $8.3 million Los Feliz estate is not a result of discontent at her mother's, but rather an eagerness for change as she steps into adulthood.

Brad Pitt was reportedly overjoyed at his daughter's decision, seeing it as a positive development in their relationship.

Shiloh's Bold Move

However, this decision has stirred mixed reactions. Angelina Jolie, who has been engaged in a nearly eight-year custody battle over their younger children, reportedly found Shiloh's move concerning, though she acknowledges her daughter's growing independence.

The proximity of Brad's home to Angelina's $25 million compound is a consolation, allowing Shiloh easy access to visit her family. The reaction among Shiloh's siblings is varied, with Knox and Vivienne maintaining a good relationship with their father, while Maddox, Pax, and Zahara have shown estrangement.

In particular, Zahara's choice to use "Marley Jolie" at a college event and a contentious Instagram post from Pax underscore the family's complex dynamics. Adding another layer to this situation is Brad Pitt's recent relationship with Ines de Roman, a 31-year-old jewelry designer.

Their relationship, still new to Brad's children, adds potential for adjustment as Shiloh plans her move. Despite these challenges, Pitt is optimistic, looking forward to having Shiloh at home and confident in the family's ability to navigate these changes.
