Angelina Jolie warns ex Brad Pitt to keep daughter Shiloh away from his 'close pal' Alia Shawkat
Jolie apparently called Pitt to tell him that she didn't want the children meeting any of his female friends
Angelina Jolie has warned her former husband Brad Pitt to keep their daughter Shiloh away from his close friend Alia Shawkat. Jolie had also allegedly banned any of the Jolie-Pitt brood from meeting Jennifer Aniston after reports revealed that Pitt had started to get close to his ex-wife after being divorced for 15 years.
Reports also revealed that Pitt had spent some time of the coronavirus lockdown with 'Arrested Development' star Shawkat, a close friend of his, as per Mirror. Jolie's reported ban follows news of Shiloh, 13, being introduced to Shawkat while she was staying with her father. Jolie was apparently miffed and upset that Shiloh "hit it off with Alia" and had been excited to meet her. Pitt had also hoped that his former wife would make friends with Shawkat but Jolie was having none of it and had called him to tell him that she didn't want the children meeting any of his female friends.
"Angie doesn’t have a lot of female friends, and she has no intention of making Brad’s new babe one of them," an insider shared. It is believed that Jolie has no issue with Pitt's relationships with other women but she has a problem that he is meeting them while having the children. The former couple share six children together -- Maddox, 18, Zahara, 15, Pax, 16, Shiloh, 13, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 11. Pitt has been seen at many public events with Shawkat but their appearances have been brushed off as coincidences.
The two have said that their friendship is platonic with Pitt even introducing Shawkat to Aniston. It is also reported that both Aniston and Shawkat have now become friends as well. "Alia has also become close to Jen and has even joked that she finds her more attractive than Brad and would rather date her than him, which everyone found hilarious," a source shared. "Brad thinks Alia is one of the most beautiful people in the world but he looks at her as more of a sister and has come to count her as one of the most important people in his life," the insider added.
We previously reported that Aniston had helped Shiloh land a small role in the upcoming 'The Goree Girls' where she would co-star with Aniston. "After Jen revealed there was a small role for Shiloh, Brad managed to get Ange to agree on the basis filming wouldn’t interfere with her studies," a source said, as per a report by The Sun.
"But Ange is apparently furious – even more so given her daughter will be starring alongside Brad’s first wife,” an insider said. “While contract is yet to be signed, Brad’s hoping Ange does not pull any last-minute stunts," the source continued. Jolie reportedly banned Aniston from spending time any of her and Pitt's children. According to Woman's Day, an insider said, "Angelina has privately demanded that Jen be banned from seeing her kids."Jolie and Pitt wed in 2014 with the former filing for divorce two years later in 2016. Aniston was previously married to Pitt in 2000 and the two announced their divorce in 2005.
