The latest Life & Style reports that Angelina Jolie cleverly crafted Shiloh’s tomboy persona as a way to get more publicity for her movies and charitable causes. If it’s true, it’s a horrible way to exploit her little girl. Do you think Angelina would actually do that to her daughter?
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have stated time and time again that Shiloh Jolie-Pitt is a natural-born tomboy. “It’s not my choice. I have a very strong willed girl who tells me what she wants to wear and I let her be who she is,” says Angelina. But according to the new issue of Life & Style, the 4-year-old actually doesn’t have much say over her wardrobe. Insiders tell the magazine that Angelina isn’t being honest about the way she creates a distinct personality for each of her kids and that her first biological child, whom she once referred to as a “blob,” has been forced to take the tomboy role.
“She’s been dressing Shiloh in her older brother Maddox’s hand-me-downs, including making her wear boys’ boxer shorts, for years,” an insider tells the magazine. The insider also insists that the Salt star was flat-out lying when she claimed that Shiloh begged for her boyish cropped cut after sobbing over her long locks. “It was her idea to cut her hair so short,” swears the source. HollyMoms, do you think Angelina would really manipulate the blond cutie on purpose for publicity? And that Shiloh’s daddy Brad Pitt would let her do such an awful thing?
The magazine goes on to say that Shiloh’s current wardrobe is a clue to Angelina’s manipulation. According to fashion experts, Shiloh’s ensembles are way too coordinated to be chosen by the 4-year-old, without her mother’s help, even though Angelina has said that Shiloh dresses herself. Children’s stylist Zoey Washington tells Life & Style that on September 14 at LAX airport, Shiloh was sporting most of the season’s biggest trends. “One big trend is black and gray. And her unlaced boots are so Gaultier high fashion,” Zoey tells the mag, adding that the half-laced boots aren’t exactly safe especially when walking through a busy, crowded airport. That’s one of the few facts that we actually agree with!
