Empress Zahara is not pleased


I missed some of these photos when I wrote on Sunday (correctly) that Brad and Angelina weren’t going to be attending the Oscars. Instead of flying to LA for Hollywood’s biggest night, the Brangelina gang (minus the gerbils and the twins) went to a birthday party. It seems like the party was thrown by Angelina’s Tourist director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck for one of his three kids. Judging solely from the photos, it does seem like the kids – especially Shiloh, who seems to have taken a special liking to van Donnersmarck, who is holding her in these photos – had a good time. Don’t judge the day by Empress Zahara’s fabulous little bitchface. She’s throwing that “I’ll shank you” look to the paparazzi. Her look says it all – “You a-holes can’t even let me enjoy some birthday cake?”

Meanwhile here’s Shiloh, looking adorable. I think von Donnersmarck must be tickling her. I’m wanting to start a new rumor… not about Angelina and Johnny Depp, but about Angelina and her director. He seems like he loves kids, and that’s what Angelina likes!




There are more photos of the Jolie-Pitt clan out and about in Venice today at The Gossip Center.

    Poor Shiloh. She looks so obviously warped by her toddler lesbian hair cut and butch clothing. Damn that Angelina!

  2. Rose says:

    Such a cutie.

  3. PrettyTarheelFan says:

    LOL@ Mollyb-so miserable, right?
    What’s sad is that soon, the director and Angelina will be on the cover of one magazine or another… “Angelina’s falls for director’s clean chin”

  4. Ursula says:

    There is something off about that picture where Shiloh is smiling. I think the mother’s lack of body to body communication with the child. Like the mother is so unaware of the child reaching for her, that is if the child is reaching for her.

    I will not comment about her hair, but saw other pictures and Shiloh was wearing boxers. That is taking the cross dressing shindig too far I say. Then again, she is their child to worry about. Nice to see her smiling. She always has these sorrowful eyes. Like no one cares about her.

  5. Godzilla says:

    Hey Celebitchy!! Why not have a moratorium on stories regarding celebrity children? Inviting us to comment on the Brangelina kids whilst criticising the tabloids for doing the same is just a little, you know… [blank]

  6. Rose says:

    Projecting again Ursula?

  7. Melanie says:

    It is nice to see the kid smiling for once.

  8. gg says:

    Ursula you can see ALL THAT in a few cut frames ?? please.

  9. nycmom10024 says:

    ursula- because when we see a wider range on the photo you see she is reaching for Pax. If we are going psych analyze pics shouldn’t we look at the most full view possible?

  10. Alecto says:

    shiloh’s already loosing teeth?

  11. Constance says:

    Hey I’m with Ursula! Those kids will continue their teenage and adult lives (hopefully) in the care of mental health professionals that their mother refused to see. Letting your kids “express themselves however they want to encourage their experimentation of learning the world” is how come we have so many damn BeBe’s kids running around. hahaha

    AnHELLina will always be the -washed up actress- who -adopted a brood to gain publicity.- [read: I’m a fan of George Clooney’s Loony Baby Hoarders of Hollywood conspiracy.]

    Amen to rich long lasting gossip at the expense of those who make money because they deep down love it!

  12. Praise St. Angie! says:

    oh, that pic of Shiloh smiling with her hair all mussed from the wind just melts my heart….there’s almost nothing more uplifting to see a child smile and laugh like that. (sorry for bringing the sap but she is adorable.)

    to mollyb – BRILLIANT…but expect some of the crazies to think you were serious.

  13. bite me says:

    cute kids

  14. free says:

    that’s the first time i’ve seen that kid smile. hope she doesnt grow up like Chaz

  15. Toe says:

    Some people were waiting for some Angie info to Bash on and express their wacko views. Man…what would the world be without Angie. Mad world.
    Ps: Not for MollyB

  16. Tess says:

    @Mollyb: Hilarious!!!

    but, seriously, could the kid be the result of an illicit night of pleasure between Brad and Chaz Bono?

    Just askin…..

  17. Just a Poster says:

    Wow gee.. look kids acting like and looking like KIDS!

    Laughing and smiling and yes even the bitchface. Guess what.. thats what kids do!

  18. stacey says:

    regarding the bowl cut shilo has when i was little i refused to let my mom brush my hair and guess what kind of hair cut she gave me. “A BOWL CUT” needless to say i also refused to wear dresses and was always in jeans and a tee with a hat. now i wear a skirt or dress or some type of suit to work everyday. some kids are more comfortable in play clothes.

  19. Just a Poster says:

    Exactly Stacy!

    My daughter has tons of hair, but it is super fine and when she was that age, whenever the wind would blow, TANGLE CITY! she hated getting it brushed, it was like wrestling an alligator. I made her life and mine easier by cutting it into a cute page boy. (her hair is now longer, since she is older)

    She has 2 older brothers, and wants to keep up with them and is more interested in playing than fashion. And she has a a very girly room, decked out in Pink, which happens to be her favorite color.

    She is still firmly in tomboy stage, and can outrun and out play her older brothers.

    Does this make her a future lesbo? (not that there would be anything wrong with that IMO) Umm.. No. Just means she is more and more like me, and when she hits the true “girly stage” Look out World! She will be a walking fashion plate and cost me big bucks with her new choices in clothes.

    Mother like Daughter.. imagine that.

  20. michellllle says:

    What lovely children. If they are maladjusted you certainly can’t tell from these shots. The stink eye & esp “bitch face” comments are just so wrong. That beautiful face appears to be squinting. Yeah, I get the comments are attempts to be funny but I doubt she’ll appreciate it when she realizes she’s known for her “stink eye/ shank a bitch expression”. Whether it’s wrapped up w/ “Empress” or any other idiotic title there exists the possiblity it might hurt a young girls feelings, so why risk it?

  21. Scarlet Vixen says:

    Shiloh looks like a lil Brad clone. Too cute. She even has his 90s-Engaged to Gwyneth-hair. But ya, isn’t she young for losing her top teeth already? I can’t remember how old she is…

  22. S says:

    I love Shiloh’s hair and throwback 80’s pants and shoes! It is so refreshing to see celebrity children in playclothes instead of prissed up. Angelina and Brad obvious let their children act like children. GASP!!! THE HORROR!!!


    I also love that it looks like Zahara is making a fist.

    Stop judging and claiming neglect and emotional issues based on online pap shots. And if nothing else stop the gender generalizations on young children.

  23. mollyb says:

    I thought I read that she lost her top teeth in a accident roughhousing with her brothers . . . .

  24. Cheyenne says:

    That photo of Her Imperial Highness, She Who Must Be Obeyed, is priceless. She looks like she’s about to bust a paparazzi right in the mouth.

  25. snowball says:

    Kids can start losing their teeth as early as 4, but most are around 5 or 6. I have no idea how old Shiloh is, but I’m guessing she’s, what, about 4? If she lost a tooth due to an accident and the permanent tooth isn’t ready to crown, then the dentist usually does something to make sure the adult tooth descends correctly. It’s been way, way too long for me to remember, but my son’s pediatric dentist explained it to me at one point. Something like a placer or implant?

    When she’s laughing, she totally looks like Brad.

    Empress Z always looks pissed off because of her eye shape and she’s always frowning and generally looking at the camera in the pics I see. I don’t know yet if I’ve ever seen a picture of her smiling. So yes, she will give you the side eye, and that’s the only warning you get before she shanks you.

  26. Melanie says:

    I am with Godzilla, I could care less about these kids. Let’s not show them because the fans don’t like it.

  27. DoMaJoReMc says:


    UH-OH!! :-O

  28. city says:

    Is Shiloh missing one of her front teeth? Isn’t she a little young for that?

  29. Icecat says:

    I think I read that Shiloh lost her tooth playing with the boys…

  30. Kim says:

    Interesting since there have been half a dozen pics of Zahara smiling in the last week or so. Smiling walking down the street getting in the taxi boat etc. BTW Shiloh needs to drop the pink silkies and pink socks if she really wants to be a cross dresser right, Ursula

  31. Cheyenne says:

    @City: Her front tooth got knocked out last summer while she was playing football with her brothers. It will grow in when she’s five or six.

    @Snowball: you want to see a photo of Z smiliing? Go to google.com, click on Images, type in Zahara Jolie-Pitt, and hit the enter key. Nuttin’ to it.

  32. Kim says:

    Constance so Angie is washed up So that’s why she was paid 15 million for Mr and Mrs Smith before she met BP. She is being paid 20 million for both Salt and the Tourist , one of the few stars whose salary is not deferred according to the NYT. Also according to the The Hollywood Reporter she made 40 million for Wanted. Damn I wish I was a washed up actress.

  33. teri says:

    Princess Zahara is so cute, just love her and all the JP children. Shiloh is such a happy child, let her be a happy carefree child and quit being so judgemental. I don’t see the jenhens lecturing Lourdess by wearing ties and boys clothes.

  34. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    Awwww wow Angelina is stunning. Looks like the kids had fun at the birthday party. ^_^

  35. Aspen says:

    I still say Shiloh cut her own hair. I mean…kids do that, and her cut is so uneven (could be the wind, but it looks uneven to me). Yep. Self-cut toddler ‘do. That’s my theory. The Jolie-Pitts always seem to let the kids dress and get hairstyles however they want them. If Maddox got to have a bright blue mohawk at that age, I don’t see why it’s so scandalous that Shiloh, who has older brothers to play with and emulate, should get to wear hoodies, polo collars, and high top sneakers.

  36. Cheyenne says:

    LOL that blue Mohawk was some kind of hair goop called DyeHard. The kids love it. It comes in a bajillion colors and you slather it on and wash it right out. Dennis Rodman used it to make his Afro green.


  37. truthSF says:

    @ Aspen, Speaking of wearing high tops as a kid, I miss the late ’80s early ’90s when all I wanted to wear were Jordache Jeans and high tops sneakers and triple fat goose coats in Brooklyn N.Y. You wasn’t shit unless you had any or all three of these items, lol.

  38. annaloo says:

    @ Kim– Re: Zahara

    I know! I often see the pics of Zahara where she’s frowning and making faces on blogs… and I know that girl smiles a lot.

    Don’t rolecast this sweet looking little girl with such dour looking photos so often!

    It feels people have attached and LURVE the image of Zahara being a moody or angry diva figure! So sad! This girl probably loves daffodils, ladybugs and strawberry ice cream, yet she gets the “Zahara’s-sideeye-can-cut-a-bitch” images and comments posted.

    I’d like to ask Celebitchy for more pics of Zahara smiling. I love those!

  39. Praise St. Angie! says:

    wow, it took 33 posts for one of the looney-toons to mention Jen.

    well played, nut bar.

  40. nnn says:

    Why are people judging an haircut on a toddler as being leszboish…I didn’t know lesbians all looked like boys with short haircut…i mean, hello Portia De Rossi. If anything, Suri could be the one turning lezbo with a long haircut and 5 inches stilletoes….not that there is anything wrong with that

    Just saying

  41. Melanie says:

    i want more of Suri, less of Brangie spawn.

  42. Melanie says:

    Suri is cuter by a mile.

  43. Rose says:

    in YOUR opinion. Comparing children is ridiculous anyway.

  44. Mel says:

    I have never liked Angelina, never, but I think celebrity kids are definitely off limits.

    What’s the matter with you people, seriously STOP, think about what you’re doing. You are discussing the sexuality of a 2 year old….get grip. Its disgusting, disgraceful and the lowest of the low, shame on you. How can you look yourselves in the mirror.

    Shiloh will be seriously damaged if she ever reads the absolute tripe and pathetic comments here and elsewhere.

  45. daisy424 says:

    Darling 😉

  46. nnn says:


    I don’t agree.

    Many f*cked up kids are living in the US and they never left their home nor ghetto…while many Europeans due to their small country and multilingualism more prevalent move all the time from one country to another, usually being themselves raised by patrents of different nationality. And there is not more problems with those kids than those who never move like in the US.

    You just need to watch the TV and watch the news to see how f$cked up modern youth is with drugs, guns, disrespecting their parents, dropping school, child pregnancies, ect.

    The US is the western country with the highest rate in those society problems and it touches most definitely those who have never left their little place.

    So instead of having concern for those privilleged children look at your own backyard.

  47. Lucky Charm says:

    My daughter also has two older brothers and when she was 3 she was playing with them and fell and had to have her two front teeth removed. The dentist said to just wait for her adult teeth to come in @ age 5 or 6. So for about three years she looked like a jack-o-lantern. Not a big deal, kids are kids!

  48. Cheyenne says:

    @Melanie: I would never call a four year old wearing long dangly earrings, high heeled shoes, tinted lipgloss, and a robotic expression on her face “cute”. And referring to a child as “spawn” is despicable.

  49. ell says:

    mollyb – get yourself a damned good shrink. Shame on you!!

  50. GatsbyGal says:

    Some of you guys are dicks, for serious. Shiloh’s a little kid, so for god’s sake just shut the fuck up and let her be a little kid.

  51. justathought says:

    ell, I second that motion and maybe Ursula can join Mollyb for a ‘two for one’ shrink special.

  52. Rose says:

    Ell, I think she is being sarcastic.

  53. Wow, people are obviously under the impression that they know everything about celebs just by looking at these kinds of photos.

  54. Velvet Elvis says:

    Shiloh is a little too young to be going butch so soon. Put her in a Hello Kitty shirt or something for God’s sake.

  55. Melanie says:

    Gatsby Gal: I agree. I am sick of seeing these tater tots every day. Give us some cute kids to look at with nice clothes!

  56. Beth says:

    I don’t know why people are so hypocritical and stupid when it comes to the Jolie-Pitt family. Violet Affleck, who’s about the same age as Shiloh, has been missing teeth for at least a year and nobody says anything. Just google her photos. Also the football story was from a tabloid. Not saying it isn’t true but it isn’t a fact like people are claiming. How ridiculous to say that short hair means it’s a boy style. Lots of little girls have short hair. I don’t know why people are assuming something bad because of the cut. Shiloh may have gotten gum in her hair, cut it herself, wanted a short do because it was in face, etc. Bottomline nobody knows why and more importantly it doesn’t matter. I really hate that people call Zahara a diva, b!tch, or whatever. She doesn’t like the paps and looks angry when they are in her face. When they are at a distance, she smiles a lot.

  57. Camille says:

    Adorable kids, gorgeous family. 😀

  58. I like says:

    I like to see smiling kids in bright clothing.

  59. ThunderC*nt says:

    Wow, there’s a lot more where she comes from. *Shivers*

  60. San says:

    They are so cute and so happy. It’s a joy to see kids playing.

  61. I like says:

    What I am trying to say is that I am tired of seeing these children hounded by the paps. I would rather see happy looking kids, or no kids at all. And the outfits are always drab. I wear more color and I am an old lady. You should see my bright red corduroys.

  62. corine says:

    @ Beth. Agreed. It’s the same people OVER and OVER, speculating about a 3 year old kid’s clothing . . . I think it’s funny that “Praise St. Angie” calls the person who brought up Jen Aniston a “nutbar,” but it’s no problem for others here (Ursula, etc) to say that Shiloh is a cross-dresser and to imply that Angie is an uncaring mother. Ok . .

  63. Melanie says:

    Sorry Cheyenne, I am just now learning that you run this show.

  64. SpreadLove says:

    I was more of the Suri Cruise kinda kid. An extreme girly girl. I had pink everything and I had so many dollies and girly things and was just so girly BUT guess what? I turned out gay. A big old Lipstick Lezzo. lol.

    What cloths you wear when you are 3 does not indicate your sexuality as an adult. Jeez some people are so ignorant.

  65. Cheyenne says:

    @Beth: Z is a little diva. When she was eighteen months old Angie said Z was the biggest personality in the house.

    @Ursula: Let us know when you get your Ph.D in body language analysis and toddler sexuality, okay?

    @I Like: The only way to get the paparazzi to leave this family alone is to keep the children constantly indoors, which isn’t healthy for the kids.

  66. Aspie says:

    I’d like to request more cute pictures of Zahara smiling on CB, please! 🙂

  67. Chana says:

    Suri Cruise-type kid as well. Loved frilly things, dolls, HEELED shoes (yes, when I was a child my mum let me wear heels, and my ankles and feet developed just fine and I have zero back/knee/leg/foot/ankle problems). My play clothes were dresses. Not every child is more comfortable in jeans, t-shirts and sneakers.

    Anyway, calling a child “spawn” is not despicable, it’s literal. Spawn just means to produce. Its most recognizable definition is that which we use with fish, but it’s perfectly logical to use the term with human children.

  68. TG says:

    I’m guilty because I have been entranced these past 2 weeks by pics of these kids. I don’t know why because normally I don’t obsess or think about the Brang Clan too much. I did notice that the kids are looking seriously disturbed in many of the photos and that is making me feel more guilty because I think the paps are in their face. Most pics I have seen of Empress Z she has the most gleeful smile and sparkle in her eye.

    Photos – once in awhile good everyday bad.

  69. Cheyenne says:

    @Chana: You could call a person born out of wedlock a bastard. As you say, it’s literal. It’s also despicable. Just like referring to someone’s children as “spawn”. Would you want someone talking like that about your children, assuming you have any?

  70. jzhz says:

    I wish people would stop calling Zahara angry or mad – maybe because this is what black girls are ALWAYS assumed to be.

  71. rcc says:

    Dear Ursula,
    You are a f*cking moron.
    That is all.

  72. CeeCee12 says:

    Shiloh is at the age when she is figuring herself out. She may like to play hard so she dresses in what is most comfortable for her.

  73. nnn says:


    Well Chana I remeberred you criticizing people for calling jennifer Aniston ‘Childless’.

    It’is not despicable too, it’s literal that.

  74. Chana says:

    Cheyenne: Spawn is a word for progeny, period. It has no connotation. It’s a scientific word for what comes from two creatures after sexual intercourse (or laying eggs and passing sperm over them or any number of other ways). Some people might give the word some kind of connotation but it has none. Like breeding or mating. Humans have this bizarre need to be disconnected from all things natural and all words associated with animals. We do breed and we do mate.

    I have no children (I’m too young for such things at 23) but my sister has a child and has zero problems with people calling her child “spawn”. It might have something to do with that fact that she’s in animal genetics though. And her friends are geneticists who see the world as it literally is and not as humans have deluded ourselves into thinking.

    nnn: I didn’t criticize people for merely calling her childless. Because I wouldn’t have a problem with that.

    I was criticizing people for coming up with mean-spirited names for her perfume.

    Used in that particular way, “childless” is no longer a mere fact but used as a way to demean and deride, and not even in a funny way.

  75. Cheyenne says:

    Chana, your sister may not mind how people talk about her children, but most parents would be extremely offended by someone referring to their children as “spawn”.

    At 23 you are not too young to have children, but you are old enough to have learned some sensitivity and respect. Referring to someone’s children as spawn shows an appalling lack of both.

  76. Wholesome1 says:

    What a sweet family!

  77. Morgs says:

    Rock on Chana

  78. WeSLyN says:

    not tryin to be funny or anything because i truly am interested and curious..but i wonder how Zahara feels being the only child of African descent in the household?

  79. R.T says:

    Wow, this is so cute!
