Through transitional changes of family life, new information that was disclosed to sources shows that Brad Pitt has developed complicated relationships with his kids. Pitt, who has six kids with his estranged ex-wife, Angelina Jolie-Pitt, includes Maddox, 22; Zahara, 19, and Shiloh, 18, Pax, 20; and twins Knox and Vivienne, aged 15; Pitt has an unfavorable relationship with his eldest children but still gets to see the younger ones.

Contemporary events have illustrated this dilemma. Shiloh, who is a year and a few months shy of her 18th birthday, has endeavored to change her name officially, shedding 'Pitt' from her last name, an endeavor her father is not unaffected by.

"He’s aware and upset that Shiloh dropped his last name," a source told PEOPLE in June. This move marks a significant milestone in Shiloh's life, coinciding with her 18th birthday on May 27, when she filed her request for a new legal name: merely as "Shiloh Jolie." Rifts are not limited to Shiloh; all members are cut off from each other.

Insiders have said Pitt has "almost no interaction" with his children, who are now grown up. His contact with younger children Knox and Vivienne is not often because the father is extremely busy these days working in Europe on the race car movie F1.

Nevertheless, the relationship they have shares happiness through identification with similar emotions while concerning children, it runs as a sting. Additionally, making the family more exposed, Vivienne is also becoming someone else now.
