One of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s kids is in the news again. Shiloh Jolie-Pitt is hardly unrecognizable, thanks to a new hairdo. The couple’s 9-year-old daughter is following in the footsteps of Brad and Angelina by commanding the headlines and nearly breaking the Internet. Her transformation has sparked new gender rumors, according to IBTimes.
Angelina, 40, and four of her six children (7-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox did not join the family) were seen at Los Angeles International Airport on Tuesday. The family touched down after a trip to Cambodia. Photographers noticed something unusual about Shiloh. But after a few snaps, it was clear: she got a pixie cut.
Five years ago, Angelina sat down with Vanity Fair and talked about her career and family. Jolie responded to a question about Shiloh’s appearance and rumors about her boyish appearance, as shown by her fashion choices.
Then, Angelina downplayed the matter and said she dresses her daughter “like a little dude. Shiloh, we feel, has Montenegro style. It’s how people dress there. She likes tracksuits; she likes [regular] 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.”
However, sources close to Brangelina say the parents are no longer downplaying Shiloh’s possible gender mismatch.
Last month, Splash News reported that Brad and Angelina allegedly consulted with a transgender expert on Shiloh wanting to dress like a boy. Insiders say the 9-year-old, born as a girl, insists that she wear boys’ clothing and be called John.
As loving parents, Brangelina wants Shiloh to feel loved and secure while she is working through her identity. Their primary concern is to make sure that their daughter is not merely feeling pressure to be one of the boys in the family.
So far, Brad and Angie have been nothing but supportive of Shiloh and have not labeled her “transgender.”
“They understand she could be a Tomboy now, and as a teenager, could become the girliest girl there is,” said the unnamed informant.
For now, the doting parents only want to give Shiloh Jolie-Pitt the best environment as she develops. And, we couldn’t be prouder.
