In a new court filing, Angelina Jolie, 47, accused Brad Pitt, 58, of choking one of their children and striking another on a 2016 flight. The A-list couple once known as “Brangelina” has been engaged in a lengthy legal battle since Jolie first filed for divorce from Pitt in 2016, and a judge declared them single in 2019. The biggest stake in the divorce continues to be the custody arrangements for the couple’s youngest children.

In 2021, Brad Pitt was awarded joint custody of his six children with Angelina Jolie, a source familiar with the situation confirmed. Page Six first reported the news.

“Pitt has always been seeking the opportunity to have more time with his children and prioritised their well being while the other side did everything to try and stop that,” the source, whose identity is known but is being withheld due to the nature of the information, told Insider at the time.

If you’re not familiar with the Jolie-Pitt family, here’s a primer on the children in the order they became a part of the Brangie brood.

Maddox was adopted by Jolie in 2002 from Cambodia and originally changed his name from Rath Vibol to Maddox Chivan Thornton Jolie, when she was still married to Billy Bob Thornton, per E! News.

The following year, she opened a foundation in Cambodia (now the Maddox Jolie-Pitt Foundation) which helps provide healthcare, education and conservation projects. In 2006, a children’s centre was opened under his name in Cambodia’s capital.

Maddox had a small part in Pitt’s 2013 movie World War Z where he played a zombie who was shot. Maddox helped his mother with work on a Netflix original film, First They Killed My Father, based in his home country of Cambodia. Jolie directed and produced the adaptation of the Loung Ung memoir, First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers.

“The film will change Mad, but as much as he’s discovering the horrors of the past, he’ll also be discovering the culture before the war, the dignity of his country, how they held their heads up,” Jolie told Vogue in 2015 of Maddox’s role working on the film. Pitt formally applied to adopt Maddox in 2005 at the same time he applied to adopt the couple’s other adopted daughter, Zahara.

It has also been reported that an alleged fight between Pitt and Maddox on a plane trip may have played a role in Jolie’s decision to file for divorce. In a statement released by Jolie’s lawyer at the time of the announcement, it was said the decision to divorce “was made for the health of the family”, as reported by People. The FBI cleared Pitt of child-abuse allegations in November 2016.

Maddox currently studies at Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea. In a 2020 interview with Extra, Jolie said Maddox returned to the US to take his classes online due to the Covid-19 pandemic. And in February 2021, Maddox showed off a rare look at the large dragon tattoo he has inked on his right rib-cage in a photo British Vogue published of Jolie cutting her son’s hair. The photo was among several intimate at-home snapshots Jolie shared for the magazine’s March 2021 cover story.

Jolie adopted Zahara from Ethiopia in 2005, right after Independence Day. Pitt applied to adopt her the same year. Zahara also provided her voice in Kung Fu Panda 3 and has a small uncredited role in Maleficent, according to IMDB.
Jolie started work on an Ethiopian facility in 2011, to be named after her daughter, for children who have been diagnosed with HIV or tuberculosis. Zahara appears to be pretty close with sister Shiloh. The two have been seen out on shopping excursions together and attended Nickelodeon’s 28th annual Kids’ Choice Awards in 2015 with Angelina Jolie.

In 2019, Zahara launched a jewellery line, the Zahara Collection, in collaboration with jeweller Robert Procop.

Jolie revealed in a March 2020 Time essay for International Women’s Day that she “spent the last two months in and out of surgeries with my eldest daughter”, referring to Zahara, but did not disclose the “medical challenges” her daughter was facing. A source told ET that month that Pitt had skipped that year’s BAFTAs to be with Zahara during her recovery.

In October 2021, Zahara wore her mother’s 2014 Oscars dress to the world premiere of Marvel’s Eternals and rocked it. At the time, Jolie told Entertainment Tonight that all of her five kids at the event upcycled some of the stars’ old belongings.

At the end of last year, Zahara joined Jolie in Washington as the actor headed to meetings to “modernise and strengthen” the Violence Against Women Act, as Angie posted on Instagram.

Zahara started classes at Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia this autumn.

Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, 16

Pitt and Jolie’s first biological daughter was born in May 2006. People paid a reported US$4 million for the exclusive US rights to run the first photos of Shiloh. The June 2006 issue of People was a huge seller for the magazine, with 2.2 million copies sold, according to the Associated Press.

When young, Shiloh preferred dressing in masculine clothes – fedoras and sometimes ties. In 2008, Pitt explained to Oprah Winfrey how then-two-year-old Shiloh would ask to be called John.

Two years later, Jolie opened up to Vanity Fair about their daughter. “She likes tracksuits, she likes [regular] suits,” Jolie said. “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.”

As she got older, Shiloh debuted a new look with longer hair, which she often wears up high when attending events with her family.

Shiloh may have ditched suits for the time being, but often opts for fun and comfortable shoes over heels on red carpets.

Jolie wrote in the same March 2020 Time essay that another of her daughters underwent hip surgery around the same time. The actress didn’t specify whether she was talking about Shiloh or her youngest daughter, Vivienne, but People confirmed at the time that then 13-year-old Shiloh had been photographed walking on crutches.

Jolie’s second oldest son Pax Thien Jolie-Pitt was adopted in 2007 from Vietnam when he was three years old. His name means “peaceful sky” in Latin and Vietnamese. Pitt adopted Pax a year later in 2008, per People.

Pax, along with his brother Maddox, has shown off some cool hairstyles over the years ranging from mohawks to dyed looks. He celebrated his seventh birthday with the family in Paris where they rode in a hot-air balloon and went on a party cruise, per People. That same year, in 2011, Jolie took Pax back to Vietnam for a visit so he could learn more about his culture.

A zip-up shark hoodie became a staple outfit of his to hide from the paparazzi.

Like some of his siblings, he also had a small role in one of his parents’ films. He had a small uncredited role in Jolie’s Maleficent. Pax also recorded some animal noises for pandas in Kung Fu Panda 3 along with his siblings Zahara, Shiloh and Knox. Pax was also reportedly helping Jolie with her Netflix film by taking still photos on set.

Jolie revealed during a 2016 appearance on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour that Pax has an interest in music and DJing.

In 2021, Pax graduated from a Los Angeles high school. According to British media, he skipped his graduation, not wanting to draw attention at the event.

Vivienne Marcheline and Knox Léon Jolie-Pitt, 14

Knox Léon and Vivienne Marcheline were born on July 12, 2008. Knox is the middle name of Pitt’s grandfather while Léon is the name of Jolie’s great-great-grandfather. Marcheline is the name of Jolie’s mother. The fraternal twins are spitting images of their sibling Shiloh.

In 2011, Jolie described Vivienne to Marie Claire, who she refers to as Vivi, as a “girlie girl” who likes to get her nails done and loves the colour pink. Jolie used the words “elegant and delicate” to describe her youngest daughter. Meanwhile, Knox is just the opposite, according to Jolie, who described him then as a tough little “dude” who likes dinosaurs and swords.

Vivienne played a pint-sized version of Princess Aurora in Maleficent alongside her mum, a role for which she reportedly earned US$3,000 per week, per TMZ. Knox, meanwhile, recorded animal noises for Kung Fu Panda 3, which Jolie voiced a part in herself.

The twins modelled in Vogue alongside their siblings and parents for the magazine’s November 2015 issue. Jolie told Vanity Fair that Vivienne wants to learn Arabic while Knox was learning sign language.

And Knox may have a future in design. For Mother’s Day in 2014, Knox had one of his Maleficent drawings turned into a gold ring. Vivienne, meanwhile, practices karate.

Lately, Knox and Vivienne have been spending a lot of time with their mum whether accompanying her to the grocery store, heading to a musical or going on a theme park outing.
