“I need people to respect her because she just said her name Zahara out loud. Marley. Jolie. ZERO mention of the name PITT.” Another user posted, Periot.
Zahara is currently a sophomore at Spelman College, a historically black women’s college in Atlanta, Georgia.
Last month, it was revealed that Angelina and Brad’s adopted son Pax called his father a “world-class asshole” and “despicable person” in an explosive Instagram post posted on Father’s Day 2020. The four youngest children were “trembling with fear.”

He added, “You can tell yourself and the world whatever you want, but one day the truth will come out.”
He then sarcastically added: “Happy Father’s Day, you bloody horrible human being.”
Brad and Angelina controversially met in 2005 on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. They have since become regarded as Hollywood’s “celebrity couple” during their long-term relationship.
They tied the knot in a secret ceremony in the south of France in August 2014 and welcomed three children during their romance: Shiloh, now 17, in 2006, and 20, now 15, in 2008. Twins Vivienne and Knox.
They also adopted two other people, Zahara and Pax, and Brad legally adopted Maddox, the son Angelina adopted before they were together.
But in 2016, the relationship ended explosively when the pair got into an alleged physical altercation while on a private flight with their six children.
Angelina later claimed Brad “choked” one of the children and “smacked” another in the face during the horrific altercation, leaving her and the children feeling like “hostages” under a blanket Huddled in fear for hours until they hit the ground.
She also claimed that at one point during the flight he grabbed her head, slammed her into a wall and shook her violently, causing injuries to her back and elbows.
Brad’s rep initially told CNN that Angelina’s account was “completely untrue,” but later released a revised statement to the publication, which read: “Angelina’s story is told every time it is told. It’s constantly evolving.”
“Brad has accepted responsibility for things he has done, but will not take responsibility for things he did not do. He has been the victim of a variety of personal attacks and distortions of the truth.
“Thankfully she has tried to use various public agencies against him over the past six years and they have all made their own independent decisions. Brad will continue to respond in court, as he has always done .
Since their split, the two stars have been embroiled in one of the most high-profile legal battles in Hollywood history, fighting over custody of their children and the winery they once owned together.
In May 2021, after years of challenges in court, Brad and Angelina officially gained joint custody of their six children, but a judge’s decision was thrown out a month later.
