Angelina Jolie and her 10-year-old daughter, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, reportedly spent Brad Pitt’s 53rd birthday shopping for cameras.
As Angelina Jolie allegedly remains locked in a bitter custody dispute over her six children with Pitt, the 41-year-old actress enjoyed a day out in Los Angeles on Sunday with her oldest biological child.
“Shiloh is very interested in photography, and [Angelina Jolie] asked to look at some of the vintage cameras,” an insider told Us Weekly on December 19. “Angelina inspected the cameras from many different angles and was asking questions. Shiloh was listening intently and paying close attention.”
According to the magazine’s report, Angelina Jolie and her daughter were seen browsing the cameras at a Samy’s Camera store.
“[Angelina Jolie] told Shiloh she would love to get her the camera and asked her, ‘Are you satisfied?’ She told Shiloh it even had black and white, which was a nice added feature. Shiloh nodded her head but didn’t talk much. She really listened to Angelina and deferred to her on everything. Angelina purchased the camera and they stayed for about 10 minutes and then left with a driver.”
Angelina Jolie and her children, including Maddox Jolie-Pitt, 15, Pax Jolie-Pitt, 13, Zahara Jolie-Pitt, 11, and twins Vivienne and Knox Jolie-Pitt, 8, haven’t been seen much since the actress filed for divorce from Pitt on September 19 and requested full physical custody of their kids. However, in October, a report shared by X17 Online claimed the family, sans Pitt, was living in Malibu at the home of Universal executive Ron Meyer.
According to the report, Angelina Jolie initially rented a home on Pt. Dume, but because she had to be out by the end of September, she was forced to find a new home for her and her family and was able to make a deal with Meyer. Around the time, rumors swirled claiming Angelina Jolie moved into Denise Richards’ Hidden Hills home, but she was only at the mansion to visit with her friend. Meanwhile, she was actually living at Meyer’s home, which has been described as “expansive” and “environmentally-friendly.”
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt parted ways in September after two years of marriage, but they were actually together for a total of 12 years. As fans of the former couple will recall, Angelina Jolie’s relationship with Pitt began on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith in 2004, when he was still married to Jennifer Aniston.
While Brad Pitt was reportedly unable to see his children on Thanksgiving, he is said to be hopeful about the possibility of a Christmas visit.
“Brad hopes to see the kids for Christmas at some point,” a source told Us Weekly of Pitt, “but when hasn’t been determined.”
After Angelina Jolie filed for divorce, child abuse allegations were made against the actor, who had allegedly engaged in a physical altercation with Maddox on their family plane. However, weeks after investigations into the incident were launched by the FBI and the Los Angeles Department of Child and Family Services, Pitt was cleared. Still, he only sees his children when a therapist gives permission.
“The job of the D.C.F.S. is to make sure the children are in a safe and secure situation. As we said earlier this week, childcare professionals encouraged a legal agreement accepted and signed by both sides that was in the best interest of the children,” the organization said in a statement to Vanity Fair in November. “[Angelina Jolie] said from the beginning that she felt she had to take action for the health of the family and is relieved that after their eight-week involvement, the D.C.F.S. is now satisfied the safeguards are put in place that will allow the children to heal.”
