Angelina Jolie ‘has been in her pajamas, in the pediatric ward’ for the past two months

Angelina Jolie spends a day shopping at the mall with her kids and an assistant

For International Women’s Day, Angelina Jolie contributed another column to Time Magazine, where she has a contributing-editor gig. I think she does one or two columns a month? Something like that. Jolie’s column, as we discussed yesterday, was about how girls inherently nurture people, and how that nurturing is taken for granted and abused. Angelina discussed this in the context of seeing two of her daughters go through surgery. She didn’t name which daughters had what done, but we surmised that Zahara had surgery and was in the hospital for a while and that Vivienne or Shiloh was also recently hospitalized with a hip issue? The wording was confusing, but we got a clarification: Vivienne is fine and she was not hospitalized, although Viv did spend a lot of time with her sisters while they were hospitalized. Shiloh is currently on crutches for some kind of issue. Considering her wild tomboy vibe, my guess is still skateboarding accident, or maybe a dune buggy crash? People Magazine spoke to a “source” who confirmed that Angelina has been spending so much time over the past two months at the hospital with her girls:

While the Maleficent actress referred directly to 15-year-old Zahara, she didn’t specify which of her two younger daughters underwent hip surgery. However, PEOPLE has confirmed that, Shiloh, 13, was photographed walking on crutches over the weekend while out shopping with her mom and sister, Vivienne, 11. Zahara was also seen stepping out after her surgeries, attending Cirque du Soleil with her family, where she was seen wearing an IV drip.

A source from the hospital tells PEOPLE that Jolie has been by her kids’ side for the past two months as they were in and out of the hospital.

“She’s been in her pajamas, in the pediatric ward, by their side,” the source says.

Another source tells PEOPLE that the girls are now on the mend. “They look to be recovering,” the insider says.

This actually answers some questions I had about Angelina’s utter non-engagement with Brad Pitt’s nonsense during the awards season. He was so clearly looking to get a reaction from Jolie, almost like he couldn’t help but bait her. And she didn’t take the bait – she did not issue any statements, nor did any “sources close to Angelina” speak to People Magazine during his campaign. As it turns out, we also solved another mystery: the mystery of why Brad skipped the BAFTAs. He was apparently spending time with either Zahara or Shiloh. He made sure to leak that to Page Six:

Brad Pitt missed the BAFTAs to be by his daughter’s side as she recovered from an operation, multiple sources confirm to Page Six. In February, the star canceled his trip to London at the last minute — and sent co-star Margot Robbie in his place to pick up his gong for his role in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in … Hollywood.”

He cited a “family obligation” at the time, as a source close to the actor told us: “The children come before anything.”

As ex-wife Angelina Jolie revealed that two of their daughters have recently undergone surgery, a friend of the family confirmed that Pitt — who dedicated his Oscar win to his six kids — stayed home in LA to support his daughters. However, the friend admitted that Pitt had never spoken publicly about his kids — and never will — as Jolie spoke out.

[From Page Six]

Can Brad Pitt really claim any kind of moral high ground on “never” speaking about his kids when he clearly sent his publicist to Page Six to confirm that he was, in fact, spending time with his kids? And historically, Brad has talked about his children, clutch your pearls! He used to talk about them all the time in interviews, before he did something to Maddox on the plane in 2016. Then he spent years only seeing his kids occasionally with a court-ordered monitor present, and his oldest sons want nothing to do with him. But, you know, the moral high ground! He never talks about his kids! Unless he’s dedicating an Oscar to them, or trying to “hit” Angelina for… writing an essay for Time Magazine about International Women’s Day.

    Lol at Brad’s petty. Jolie clearly said she asked and was given permission by her daughters to talk about them. They love her. They won’t be seen with you.

  2. Zapp Brannigan says:

    It was reported at the time that he missed the Bafta’s as he was repairing his relationship with Maddox, so he will namedrop his kids make himself look good in the press, just not put in the hard work of being there for them. Are his visits still supervised by the court?

    • Mia4s says:

      Yep, the Maddox story as the reason for his BAFTA absence is now confirmed as a lie. Well. Well. Well.

  3. MarineTheMachine says:

    Brad Pitt is the pettiest… He made stupid jokes about his children in front of audiences during Awards Season and has the audacity to pretend he never talks about his children in public, all the while leaking every minute he gets to spent with them to the press. I can’t believe he used to be my teenage crush 🤢

  4. Lucy2 says:

    Sounds like it was fairly serious, hope everyone is on the mend and doing well now.

    “Had never spoken publicly” about his kids?!?!?! Ha!

  5. Truth hurts says:

    He is the biggest douche I have ever seen. I thought Affleck was terrible just from terms of screwing the nanny, but this terd and his arrogant, spiteful pettiness takes the cake.
    Leave Angelina alone Brad. You’re right it’s like he can’t help himself and neither can his team.
    She wrote an op ed and clarified why because his team rants about her doing things with the kids publicly and so does his rabid fan base.
    Well guess what, they are hers. What do you expect her to do with 5 teenagers?
    They won’t sit up secluded in a GD house. My God these people are a bunch of freaking mental patients. I’m seriously sick of all of them.
    Always criticizing her and gets upset when someone tells the truth about Pitts dramatic azz.
    Either he wants to speak about them or not. Don’t run to media outlets after Angelina speaks in her op Ed’s about their courage and pain and you want the world to know you were there too! Briefly! Cause the nurses didn’t say he was!!!!! And in the past go as far as to insinuate she is just doing it for PR.
    Didn’t he just use every trick in the book including dumbo Aniston for Oscar PR?!
    Boy bye!
    Continue to hang out with weirdo Alicia’s unshaven body parts. Party with her, drink, smoke weed and pretend to be an artist. These kids don’t need the drama seemingly that you bring into their lives.

  6. Michelle says:

    Brad Pitt is a douche. While he & his team were & still are gaslighting Angelina she’s been by her childrens side through another stressful situation.

  7. SM says:

    Such pile of sexist crap. Angelina is a single mother taking care of her kids, yet it is Brad who is the best parent. Jen Aniston is getting crap for not wanting to be a mother and sticking to her choice, yet Brad has a bunch of kids and than users them only for his PR and continues not to care about being a father.

  8. Sierra says:

    I seriously cannot believe how vile Brad turned out to be.

    • NeoCleo says:

      Truly. My impression of him as a young man has nothing in common with what I know about him now. I guess it’s true that you should never meet your heroes or your crushes!!

  9. Tuntmore says:

    I was Team Jolie from the start — I like Jennifer Aniston, but I’ve always loved Angelina Jolie. I felt bad for Aniston, but at least she was being freed from marriage to an a-hole. I was on Jolie’s side because she was getting massacred in the press and the court of public opinion, not because she “won” Brad Pitt’s heart. Pitt has always seemed like a self-absorbed man-child, not nearly good enough for either Aniston or Jolie. I wish he’d just go away and be quiet for a while (like, for the rest of his life).

  10. Mich says:

    Brad Pitt is very messy. As he gets older, he acts more and more like a child.

  11. Erinn says:

    This bums me out. Thinking back to the couple of surgeries I needed as a kid – it was, for the most part, mom that was with me at the hospital. That isn’t to say my dad wasn’t there – but he was expected to go to work and keep the money coming in. He was the breadwinner, and if he had taken time off unpaid, it would have been detrimental to the whole family. He still came in every day to see me, but he just wasn’t there as much as mom.

    There was one incident following a post tonsillectomy hemorrhage where they had to rush me to the ER to cauterize my throat. I was about 10 at the time. I had to stay conscious for the procedure, and had lost a decent amount of blood for a tiny kid (I topped out just under 5’2″ as an adult, there was not much to me at 10) and had passed out and hit my head at one point. I can still remember laying on the table in the ER, and having to have my head tilted back for the Dr to be able to work, and so I wouldn’t choke on blood. But because of this I could see my parents standing in the doorway of the ER. My dad was GRAY. His skin had just lost all color. It was the first time I’d really seen my dad scared. Not nervous or anxious – but genuinely terrified that he was going to lose his daughter.

    And reading this – I’m just picturing Angelina in my parents position. And it makes me so sad, and so angry that she’s largely dealing with this all on her own. She’s probably SO much more terrified about the kids’ having surgery than she ever was about going through her own surgeries.

    • Charfromdarock says:

      @erinn, I had almost the exact same experience with my tonsillectomy. I was in hospital two weeks recovering. Except in my case it was my Mom who was the full time breadwinner while my Dad was by my side 24/7. I know it killed my Mom, she would barely make it out of my room before she’d breakdown.

      Most loving parents would do anything they could to care for their child and want to be there, especially for someone where money is not a factor.

      I will forever judge Brad for making “jokes” about his marriage and schmoozing on the circuit when he should have been taking care of his kids. Or at the very least STFU about his kids and Angelina.

      • Erinn says:

        I just can’t even imagine the kind of fear they were going through. And how hard it would be to go to work, and not be there.

        Now, I certainly didn’t like Brad anymore given the obvious, but this really ruined any last hold out of ‘maybe he’ll get his shit together’. For him to have two kids going through all of this, and not do everything in his power to be with them when they’re hurt or scared is just super lame.

  12. SaraR. says:

    Pitt never talked about his children and never will? That’s a huge lie.
    Like when he said that Maddox had down his accent for Inglorious Basterds, or when he said that nine year old Shiloh already wants to follow Angelina’s humanitarian work?
    He doesn’t have to talk about his children NOW if he doesn’t want to. And Angelina has every right, like every other parent, celebrity (from, for example, Affleck’s last week’s interviews – how many times he mentioned his kids, to Reese who features all her kids on Instagram often) or not celebrity, to talk about her children if she wants.

  13. Atorontogal says:

    I’ve always been team Jolie. I used to think Brad was cute but that’s about it. He showed his true colours when he wouldn’t shoulder any responsibility for his disasterous homes in NO. Not to mention his complete failure as a father.

  14. TheOtherSarah says:

    I hope both girls recover. As for Brad, “sources close to him” told us he had skipped the Baftas because he was trying to reconnect with Maddox. Now, he was with his daughter. Something is not adding up. Does he even see the kids? Does he know what’s going on in their lives? He seems as absent as Tom Cruise with Suri.

  15. Josie says:

    Brad is just the absolute worst. It is amazing to watch how beloved he is by the public and all his celebrity friends while Jolie is maligned for every move she makes, this might be the only place she isn’t! It also makes me wonder why Jennifer would ever give him the time of day. He’s not a good guy, he’s a self absorbed jerk who gets away with everything while playing the victim. Notice it’s always the woman’s fault with him. I think he cares more about his image, awards, and himself than he does his kids. Think of his digs at Angelina during awards season while she was taking care of her daughters. That is seriously messed up!

  16. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Never speaks about his kids? Do they think we all have amnesia?? Brad talked about the kids ALL THE TIME when he and Angie were still together. It was only after he had to have court-appointed monitors and half the kids stopped speaking to him that he stopped talking about then. FOH.

    • Hmmm says:

      Yes, do you know some so called fans are still insisting on calling Shiloh trans and John because he went to Oprah and told that stupid story about the kids.

      He no longer knows his kids like that so doesn’t have any stories to tell. 🤷🏽‍♀️ Even Ben affleck tells cute little stories about his kids because he’s a present parent.

      • Tuntmore says:

        Right? When Ben Affleck is a better and more responsible parent than you are, it’s time to re-examine your life.

        Although Affleck also speaks with sincere admiration and respect for his ex-wife and doesn’t try to make her life hell in the press. So I guess he’s just an all-around better human than Brad Pitt is.

        Affleck seems selfish but not self-centered, if that makes sense. Like, he thinks about others’ feelings and appreciates that people in his life deserve better treatment than his selfish a$$ can give them. Pitt, on the other hand, is both selfish *and* self-centered. He wants to do whatever he wants and can’t understand why it’s not ok that all that matters to him is ego fulfillment.

    >>>This actually answers some questions I had about Angelina’s utter non-engagement with Brad Pitt’s nonsense during the awards season. He was so clearly looking to get a reaction from Jolie, almost like he couldn’t help but bait her.

    Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever really seen her respond to his – or anyone’s – bullshit, which I love about her. It’s also the best way to make stupid gossip die down (generally).

    • Mireille says:

      Yeah, she doesn’t respond to gossip because she simply doesn’t care. As Oliver Stone once said about her, Angelina probably led armies in her past life. You don’t get a compliment like that if you’re someone who’s obsessed with what people think of you. It’s funny though how Hollywood can gossip and snicker about Angie behind her back, but once she steps on the red carpet or make an appearance at an award show, the amount of press and Hollywood insiders that SWARM her is ridiculous. Bunch of two-faced hypocrites.

  18. LeonsMomma says:

    Well, Brad was definately NOT with his kids for Valentine’s Day as he was partying in New Orleans at Krewe du Karnaval and the various parties around it. (Krewe is a party held by the Arcade Fire people, and let me tell you Win Butler has a bad rep with NOLA waitresses. Yes, he’s married to his fellow band member Regine Chassiagne). We were wondering if he was doing anything to help the Make Ir Right homeowners, but from what we saw, it was a big fat no. Just here to have fun.

    • Hmmm says:

      The nerve he had to show his melting face in Nola after what he’s done there. The narcissist. I swear he’s another trump.

    • TheOtherSarah says:

      He went to NOLA? After the mess with Make It Right Foundation? Doesn’t he have any kind of shame?

    • Elisa says:

      pls spill the beans about Win Butler!!

      • LeonsMomma says:

        Let’s just say one restaurant owner told him to back off (Win would either proposition or sleep with them). The owner got tired of the drama and didn’t care who he was.

  19. Michelle says:

    What I want to know is…are her pajamas black too??

  20. Hmmm says:

    If and that’s a big if he saw zahara at all it was likely one day for a few minutes because he had to co sign the surgeries. Angelina later filed some emergency order and child custody evaluation. I’m thinking the emergency order was so she didn’t have to have deadbeat co sign shilohs surgery because he WAS NOT AROUND. he was in France. Not sure why he’s not quarantined.😂

    Why anyone would believe his side when he was so disgustingly desperate for that statue. Yuck. Such a turn off.

  21. OriginalCarol says:

    Not to wish any bad deeds to people but won’t it be something if he somehow gets the virus what with him partying all over the places/countries. He’d better not be around his kids then. That’s the last thing they need from a deadbeat father.

  22. Awkward symphony says:

    I never saw him with the kids after 2017(I remember one of the twins visiting his set)!! She is basically a single mother raising her kids by herself(& probably paying for it all).

  23. Lop says:

    God bless jolie and her family

  24. Sidewithkids says:

    BP has CAA to back up his lies, that’s why he’s still popular plus no offense he’s a privileged white man (they always get off) and we’ve seen it many times but some women are gullible and will follow privileged white men, esp one deemed handsome, to the detriment of themselves. We see it now. CAA are the same ones who backed up Harvey Weinstein so you know they don’t mind lying and keeping dirty secrets for their clients. Also, JA belongs to CAA and I don’t trust her either b/c she plays into BP’s mess and all her B-list friends want to act like she’s better than Angie which is nonsense considering Angie is well Angie. LOL.

  25. Lily says:

    Dont he look silly now that while we saw him doing his celebrity thing and joking during his speeches, and milking the Anniston moment, that Angelina spent all that time taking care of their kids. Boy, she is so smarter than him and can play the media so much better. Good for her. #teamangelina

  26. Malem says:

    imagine being in the news for being a PARENT, can Pitt get any lower?

  27. Anon says:

    If you look at pictures of him when the kids were younger, he was an active parent. He allegedly wants the kids to have a somewhat traditional childhood in one city, and she allegedly wants to travel the world with them. They have slightly different upbringings and parenting styles that according to sources cause friction. I feel that Brad is not excited about the safety issues involved with her taking the kids to live in Cambodia or travel to war torn countries. It’s a shame that there is not a win-win solution that would please both parents.

    • Hmmm says:

      Sure, Jan. That was obviously for the cameras just like his Make it right foundation. Looking back he LOOKED very interested in helping Nola Katrina victims- now to get out of the lawsuit he tried to claim he was “just the face”.

      Also, one of her bodyguards that now hosts a survival reality show in the UK says the kids called him daddy because brad was absent even back then when the kids were basically babies.

    • Truth hurts says:

      Sorry to disappoint you but Brads upbringing is not so perfect. If so why was he smoking pot and influencing his friends as a teen. He was rebellious to his parents and his dad tried to steer him sternly which was causing a little friction between them. He dropped out of college and ran to California. Even didn’t want to adhere to their religious beliefs. Continue to do the same shite for years! Just coddled.
      He was a 50 something year old man still doing that kinda mess.
      Angie coddled him too but their marriage wasn’t strained about child rearing she already explained this.

  28. JoJo says:

    Boy, Bye
    Almost every other week I see somebody call Shiloh John on IG because of his big mouth.

    Also I remember him talking about his kids to Larry King when he was promoting Make it Right in NOLA.I hope those MIR homeowners sue him and everyone involved in building those homes.
