Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt could reunite for their daughter Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, who turns 11-years-old on May 27.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, whose lives have come under increased scrutiny following their divorce last September, could get back together as soon as next week — at least for one day.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are reportedly set to reunite for their daughter Shiloh Jolie-Pitt’s 11th birthday next week. According to a source cited by Celebrity Insider, Pitt wants to have “a joint birthday party” for their first biological child.
Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, who was born in 2006 in Namibia, reportedly wants nothing else but to see her father, Brad Pitt, attend her birthday party next week. Shiloh spends much of her time with her mother Angelina Jolie, who won physical custody of their six children, but she wants to see her dad at the birthday party.
Brad Pitt was in hot water when reports surfaced last year of his alleged temper and issues with drugs and alcohol. Los Angeles County’s Department of Children and Family Services even investigated Pitt amid claims that he was abusing his children, but the case was later dismissed.
Tensions between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt – sparked by their heated divorce battle – have significantly subsided over the months, and now the duo are figuring out how this whole co-parenting thing works.
Brad Pitt is reportedly hoping that Angelina Jolie would allow him to attend Shiloh Jolie-Pitt’s birthday celebrations next week, as the Mr. & Mrs. Smith actor is reportedly ready to do whatever it takes to make his daughter happy.
“Brad wants to have a joint birthday party for Shiloh. He’s hoping Angie will agree, and for the day put their differences aside for their daughter’s sake.”
The source also added that Brad Pitt knows “how much this would mean” to Shiloh Jolie-Pitt to have both mommy and daddy be present at her 11th birthday party like they used to for ten years before the divorce.
Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, who the insider says “adores and looks up” to Brad Pitt, looked like the happiest 10-year-old in the world when she celebrated her birthday last year with both Pitt and Angeline Jolie, back when the former lovebirds were still together.
It looks like preparations for Shiloh Jolie-Pitt’s 11th birthday are already underway. In fact, Angelina Jolie was spotted with her kids shopping at Fred Segal last week, with x17 claiming the 41-year-old actress was shopping for birthday gifts for Shiloh.
While Brad Pitt is allowed to have agreed-upon visitations with the kids, the 53-year-old actor knows that attending Shiloh Jolie-Pitt’s birthday bash is going to be “tough,” according to the same source cited by Celebrity Insider.
Brad Pitt, however, is willing to eventually “break the ice” with Angelina Jolie, the insider said, adding that the actor wants a low-key birthday bash where the family would get together with a birthday cake and homemade decorations.
The media attention surrounding Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, who was once ranked second on the Forbes list of Hottest Hollywood Tots, has been controversial for years.
With Angelina Jolie previously revealing that Shiloh Jolie-Pitt liked to wear boyish clothes and Brad Pitt revealing to Oprah Winfrey that Shiloh “only wants to be called John or Peter,” the International Business Times revived transgender rumors surrounding Shiloh last September, shortly after the divorce was announced.
In fact, if Brad Pitt manages to attend Shiloh Jolie-Pitt’s 11th birthday next week, Shiloh won’t be the first Jolie-Pitt child that has brought their mom and dad together after the split. Earlier this year, Zahara’s birthday reunited Pitt and Jolie, according to Hollywood Life.
