Angelina Jolie still uses her legal name to sign legal documents, how shocking


As we discussed earlier, Brad Pitt finds himself in a flurry of bad press because his Make It Right NOLA foundation has been doing shoddy, dangerous work for years. Some of the MIR homes are in such disrepair that the city had to demolish them. Brad will likely face a major lawsuit in the months to come. Considering he’s already waging a PR and legal campaign against Angelina Jolie, this MIR thing comes at a terrible time. Brad’s PR is that he’s the best father ever (even if he makes totally reasonable mistakes like drunkenly assaulting his minor children!) and the sexiest guy ever (even if Neri Oxman wanted none of his shenanigans). I’m actually sort of shocked that Brad hasn’t found some way to blame Angelina for the MIR problems, but I’m sure that’s coming. For now, Brad’s just going to use Angelina to distract from the MIR story.

Angelina Jolie gave her seal of approval to substitute out her lawyer as she really hunkers down and gets ready to take on Brad Pitt in their volatile divorce settlement.

The Blast broke the story, Jolie was forced to go outside of Los Angeles to find a lawyer willing to wage a public war with her estranged husband. According to the document, filed by celebrity attorney Laura Wasser, Jolie approved the substitution for new lawyer Samantha Dejean, as well as veteran litigator Joe Mannis.

Kind of interesting, the “Maleficent” star still signs her documents as “Angelina Jolie Pitt.” Some habits are hard to break.

[From The Blast]

Angelina signed her name “Angelina Jolie Pitt” because she was signing a legal document and that’s her legal name. She changed her legal name to Angelina Jolie Pitt before they were even married, and I would assume that she’ll change it again once the divorce is completed, and she’ll probably just go for her maiden/stage name of Angelina Jolie, and drop Voight entirely. This is the dumbest f–king story. It’s like “Breaking News, Angelina uses her legal name to sign a completely normal legal document!!” For the love of God.

    Sounds pretty standard to me seeing as it’s a legal document and all. Nothing to see here. I agree, what a dumb story.

  2. C-Shell says:

    Just fricking ridiculous. A legal name is not a d*mned “habit.” Good luck trying to distract from the MIR debacle, Pitt.

  3. Pas says:

    Who in the world will believe that “some habits are hard to break” they are so dumb. That is a f*ckin legal document.

  4. Maya says:

    Oh dear – Brad is really scraping the barrel here.

    They are trying to distract other from the MIR disaster by this and also trying to take a dig at Angelina changing lawyer.

    I still cannot believe how scared Brad & team are because Angelina hired a brilliant new lawyer who doesn’t take any prisoners.

    Brad was able to bully and get his way while Laura was the lawyer but he knows he cannot with Samantha.

  5. BlueSky says:

    Because that means she’s like still totally in love with Brad 🙄🙄

    • Wasabi says:

      Yes, she probably even drew a heart instead of a dot over the “i” in “Pitt” 🙄🤣😂

      Brad is one pathetic garbage human being.

  6. Mia4s says:

    Oh god. Is he trying to use this to support the “she’s mad because she wants me back” narrative? He is isn’t he?

    I’d laugh but there are more than enough people stupid enough to believe that and not see the problem with not signing your legal name to a document. Not enough eye-roll emojis in the world. 🙄🙄🙄

  7. bap says:

    Angelina is still legal married to the scum bag.

  8. Tiffany says:

    I thought years ago she and her brother took the steps to drop Voight as a legal last name for themselves.

  9. enike says:

    I think she changed her name to Jolie Pitt before they were even married because all the children have this name

    “”I would assume that she’ll change it again once the divorce is completed”"

    Why would she change her name after the divorce?
    Is it necessary to change your name legally after a divorce in the US?

    • Gigs says:

      No, but a lot of women don’t like to be accused of being clingy monsters… like Brad is doing to her now.

      • Go Figure! says:

        You know, unless Brad files to actually makes her change her name, I’d keep using the name Pitt just to piss him off. That would be a hoot. But Angie probably won’t because she has too much class. Me? I don’t. LOL!

      • Erinn says:

        Pretty sure he couldn’t even tell her to stop, if he wanted. She’s legally changed her name. Plenty of people don’t change it back after they divorce because of the paper work and cost. But really, I could go out and pick a new last name out of a hat and do the paper work to change it.

        The main rules are:
        “You can’t name yourself after a celebrity (because that could be viewed as intentionally misleading), a trademarked name, a numeral (like 4 or 8), a punctuation mark (like ? or !), or something offensive or obscene. You also can’t change your name to commit fraud, evade law enforcement, or avoid paying any debts you owe.”

      • Nancy says:

        @Go Figure!: Would you really want the last name Pitt? She has the French sounding name Angelina Jolie and end it with a Pitt. Her mother’s name was Marcia, and she changed it to Marcheline and gave her children stage names that sounded nice to her. I’d drop the Pitt like a rotten peach.

    • lucy2 says:

      It’s not, some do, some don’t.
      I imagine she will change hers back though. She’s pissed at him and was well established on her own.

      Speaking of J-P though, I wonder what happened to their charitable foundation?
      And if this is their current attack, she signs her legal name on legal documents, OMG! then they have run out of ammo.

      • Hmmm says:

        The Jolie Pitt foundation is still working. Pitt tried early on to shade Angie for not putting $ in it for a year meanwhile his charity was falling apart. Angie’s guerlain money was donated to j-p I believe.

        As I said below. Maleficent just wrapped and she signed all the gifts with Angelina Jolie plus has given autographs with just her name. After they got married she did sign autographs with his ugly name but that’s ova!!

    • EllieMichelle says:

      Some women don’t do it so they have the same last name as their children, or maybe they were just established with their married name. However, my sister went through a pretty bitter divorce and couldn’t change her name back to her maiden name fast enough. My aunt’s been divorced for 15 years and still has her ex’s last name, while another aunt of mine changed her name back to her maiden name right after she divorced. It’s a personal preference thing and it doesn’t prove that a woman is still pining for her ex, which is what I’m sure Pitt is trying to imply.

    • paranormalgirl says:

      I didn’t change my name after my first husband died. In fact, I still use it because changing your name on a license to practice medicine is a pain in the ass. So even though I’m remarried, I still use my late husband’s last name.

    (#SharpObjects –Anyone else watch? So sad it’s over… what a haunting show.)

  11. Adorable says:

    She legally dropped Voight as her surname so I don’t think she’ll be going back to that.I think few people even realized she legally took Brads surname,& she is a Big name on her own so I think it’ll remain just A/Jolie🤷🏼‍♀️

  12. Patty says:

    I have yet to read a mainstream story about the NOLA houses.

  13. chinoiserie says:

    Well it sounded like an aside in the article so it’s not that bad to mention even if it’s not a habit like mentioned.

  14. Hmmm says:

    Wasn’t his lawyer whining about how he totally asked for bifurcation first? Well, what’s going on with that? He went even more nutts after those documents where she’s asking to speed up the divorce came out. He is pathetic and truly wants people to believe she wants him even tho he harmed her children so bad.

    Maleficent just wrapped and AJ gifted the crew with items and signed her name Angelina Jolie. So stuff it Brad. Pitt is a horrible last name.

    He’s already trying to pretend he has very little to do with make it right but when it first started he and the media couldn’t stfu about how amazing he was. I always knew he was faking that just like he’s faking now. Loser.

  15. Peg says:

    Angelina legally dropped Voight, years ago, if Maddox is 17yrs, it happened 16 yrs ago.

    • Sidewithkids says:

      Lol @ Brad. Angie did the right thing in hiring this new lawyer, she must have felt something wasn’t right and well, she was right. He and his team are really nervous. I wonder if Brad is holding all of this up b/c he thinks Angie is gonna change her mind and take him back or give in? Could he be that delusional. The woman has moved on, it’s time he does the same.

      I know one thing though, when I look up Angie on the internet, I want to see her news not his. She’s no longer w/ him internet people. Lol.

      Also, the reason we’re just now hearing about the homes in New Orleans and it’s being reported finally is b/c the lawsuit is about to go into effect. This actually has been happening for the last couple of years, Brad’s company built shoddy homes and he was trying to keep it out of the press b/c it’s Brad. He tried to clown Angie and her charity work but her stuff is doing great. Brad’s people lie/work overtime for him. SMH. I’m glad it’s being exposed and I hope for those people’s sakes, they win their lawsuit against Brad and his company. They’ve been through enough.

      • bap says:

        @sidewithkids He is such a bore with his story lines that they attach him next to Angelina on the internet. Get use to it he can not generate interest on his own he needs the attachment to Angelina to stay relevant.

  16. bap says:

    Brat pit stop trying to deflect from MIR lawsuits. He always trying to win as a victim.

  17. bap says:

    Is that all the lying drive by tabloid media can come up with to bash Angelina this week a signature.

  18. applepie says:

    Here in UK you can change your name at any time. My best friends wife has changed her name back to her maiden name already. They arent even divorced yet. Dont know if the same applies in the USA. I’d think that she would want to change that asap??

  19. Sidewithkids says:

    I wonder if Angie laughs at all this stuff written about her or if she just thinks these people that buy into it are cray. Most people who do are clearly on something heavy, drugs, booze, something. Lol.

  20. Sidewithkids says:

    Btw I see they added Gugu Mbatha-Raw to the cast of Come Away. I hope her and Angie can come together and become friends. They have a lot of similarities plus I just like Gugu’s disposition a lot. Think a friendship w/ each other will be great.
