The majority of Brad Pitt's six children with his ex-wife Angelina Jolie have already made it quite apparent that they are wholly committed to being with their mother. A source has revealed that the actor is currently trembling with worry that they would make his situation even worse by conducting an interview in which they reveal everything.

"This is a dark cloud hanging over Brad's head. He can muzzle Angelina with his lawyers, but he can't muzzle his own kids," the insider said. Maddox, 22, Pax, 20, Zahara, 19, Shiloh, 18, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 15, are all children that the "Bullet Train" actor, who is 60 years old, has with the "Maleficent" star, who is 49 years old.

"They've stayed totally quiet so far, but at some point down the line it's very plausible that they're going to want to tell their side of the story. There's nothing to stop them from doing it. And when they decide to go ahead and talk, Brad will just have to sit back and take it," the informant added of the children. 

Angelina has made it "very clear" that "this is not something she's trying to encourage," according to the official who has access to the information. In addition, she "insists" that Zahara, Shiloh, and Vivienne "made their own minds up" on the decision to remove the "Pitt" last name from their own personal names.

The eldest daughter of the couple that had previously been married was the first to change her name, which occurred in November of 2023. When Zahara officially joined the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority at Spelman College, she presented herself as "Zahara Marley Jolie." This was the period when she was a member of the organization. The same thing happened to Vivienne in May, when she was labeled as "Vivienne Jolie" in the Broadway playbill for "The Outsiders."

According to court documents that were obtained by TMZ, Shiloh submitted her application to legally change her name to "Shiloh Jolie" on the day that she turned 18 years old, which was May 27.

"If these kids eventually do want to turn around and get the ultimate closure by laying it all out in the open and telling the world what they've been through, it's going to be Brad's worst nightmare and no doubt will be the ultimate humiliation for him. He's in a very tough spot because it's not like he can even try and talk to them about it because that could only make things worse. So all he can do is wait for the hammer to drop and try to put it out of his mind," the mole concluded.

In a recent interview with In Touch, a snitch stated that Brad, who had a strong relationship with Shiloh in the past, was "blindsided" and "heartbroken" by her decision to shed his last name.

"But he wasn't surprised. He feels that Angie has slowly but surely turned their kids against him. She absolutely influenced their decisions to distance themselves from their dad," the spy added.

"He's really hurt because he was closest to Shiloh. He was unaware that their relationship changed. He really thought they were on good, solid ground," it continued.

According to a source who spoke to In Touch on June 25, Brad is "willing to throw his hands up and surrender" after his years-long divorce battle with Angelina. This is because the name changes that his children have undergone have been so traumatic following the struggle.

"He's sorry for everything that went down, and he knows he wasn't a model husband or dad during the time they were together," the insider added.
