Shiloh Jolie-Pitt changes name from Ben to Shax

Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, the five-year-old daughter of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, has decided she wants a new nickname to match those of her brothers, Maddox, Pax and Knox. A source told the National Enquirer: “For a while Shiloh had everyone in the family calling her Ben for some reason but she grew tired of that. These days she’s decided she wants to be known as Shax because Maddox, Pax, and Knox’s names all end in the letter X. Angelina and Brad are going along with it and think its cute.” Shiloh, aka Shax, also has two sisters — Zahara and three-year-old Vivienne, who is Knox’s twin. Angelina previously said of her middle daughter: “Shiloh dresses like a little dude. Shiloh, we feel, has Montenegro style. It’s how people dress there. She likes tracksuits, she likes suits. She likes to dress like a boy. She wants to be a boy. So we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys’ everything. She thinks she’s one of the brothers.”

    Does anyone else think this kid has serious issues?

  2. Barb Silver • January 23, 2012 @ 1:42 PM

    I tend to think she will have issues..gender wise anyway!

    She’s just a tomboy at the moment, my sister was the same way at Shiloh’s age, then she was the rebellious teenager with different coloured hair every other week as well as piercings and even got my parents to agree to let her get a tattoo when she was 14.. but now she’s in her early 20’s and she’s as girly as she can be. Who says Shiloh won’t grow up to be even more girly as her sister’s currently seem to be? And should we really judge her and say she has serious issues? Why can’t kids be who they are/want to be without judgement? And in a family with so many children and such famous parents, maybe this is just her way of acting out to get attention? Sure, it’s possible she may have some issues now, or grow up to be confused about her gender, but we shouldn’t judge this child for it now, Brad and Angelina are great parents it seems, and I think Shiloh’s adorable.

    So Stephanie would you let your kid change her name three times just cause they wanted attention?

    I agree with Stephanie on this one. I have 5 kids, 2 daughters and 3 sons. They are all different and I love them for who they are. My eldest when she was young was more of a tomboy and now she is 13 and loves to dress like her friends with makeup and all the trimmings. Justme, do you have any kids? A couple of comments on here make me sick… How dare you judge this 5 year old girl. God forbid she likes to dress like a boy, I guess that means she is gay or perhaps needs medication? WTF? ITS A LITTLE 5 YEAR OLD GIRL. You peole kinda blow my mind. Where I see a cute little kid doing little girl type things, you see a “problem child”. Holy S*it I bet you were all the same growing up with absolutely no differences between each other. Are you people serious? WTF?

    When I was a child, I liked playing with the boys in the neighborhood. I liked electric planes, trains and autos. I climbed trees and flew kites. Yes, I was a tomboy! How much FUN it was! My sister, on the other hand, liked to play with the fake oven, tea sets and dolls. BORING! When I got my first Barbie, I ripped it apart to see what was holding the head, arms and legs in place. If one of you judgmental IDIOTS had seen me do that, you probably would have thought that I would have become a murderer. HAH. I am now in my late 30s. I dress up to the 9s when appropriate. I help to heal people in my career.

    Brad Pitt I think said on Oprah she wanted to be called John.So we can’t really believe the National Enquirer.

  8. Spanky • January 25, 2012 @ 9:10 PM

    Wow, you people are retarded! She’s a freakin kid! Just let her be 5 and stop trying to take her innocence away. As she gets older she’ll grow out of it, there’s nothing abnormal to what she is doing. Can’t believe you morons would pick on a 5 year old for being a 5 year old. Your the idiots that have issues!

    I think Shiloh is a beautiful little girl, sure shes a TomBoy but shes still a little girl at heart. I have 2 daughters and one I named Shiloh after Shiloh Pitt

    she’s FIVE. there’s no way of knowing – either it could be early signs of transsexualism, or she’s just not conforming to gender stereotypical behaviour – either way, there’s no way to tell the future, all parents can do is act on the current situation.
    from the interviews i’ve read it seems like her parents seem to support and love their kid, and are not really bothered with their child’s gender identity, but instead care more about her happiness and well being.
    and as someone who’s struggled with my parents over my own gender expression since the age of three, i respect them greatly for that.

    Angelina has hated Shiloh from before she was born. She made sure Shiloh would not get much attention by adopting both Zahara and Pax shortly before and after her birth. Angelina is letting Shiloh dress like a boy so she can be the progressive Mom of a gender deviant. See how pretty Vivi is dressed. A 2 to 4 year old doesn’t know about pretty red shoes, dresses, etc. Shiloh has only been given hand-me-downs from her brothers, but Vivi always has special designer girly clothes. It’s how Angelina wants to shape her daughters. And I think its disgusting how she hates Shiloh.

    even if it isn’t just a phase, and if shiloh is transsexual, WHO CARES? If there is really a god above, he, she, or it made shiloh that way, and we should accept it.

    This is totally sick. Another example of people with too much of everything who have lost their hold on reality… This kid will grow up a mess and will be dead by the time she’s 30. What a success that will be.

    I forgot to add… is Shiloh retarded??? She looks like she has an IQ of 40 by the pics of her with that vacant stare and her drooling intellectually handicapped mouth constantly ajar… perhaps they should put her in a home out of the public glare … and to save them the social embarrassment of a less than perfect child
