Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s little girl is definitely a wild child. The Jolie-Pitt family’s nanny reveals that she scalped her sister’s dolls, didn’t cry when she lost a tooth in a fight, and she is fascinated with death!
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have never shied away from the fact that their 4-year-old daughter, Shiloh, is a tomboy at heart — she even prefers to be called John. In the new Star magazine, a Jolie-Pitt nanny and family insiders tell all about the combat boot-loving kid. “She loves to roughhouse and mud wrestle,” a nanny tells the magazine. “She thinks she’s one of her brothers,” agrees Angelina, 35. The little girl didn’t even cry when she lost a tooth during a tussle with her brothers last year!
Unfortunately, Shiloh’s big sister, Zahara, 5, has been on the receiving end of the little girl’s playful pranks. “Shi was playing cowboys and Indians one day and cut the heads off of a bunch of Zahara’s dolls!” says the insider. “When one of the nannies found her, she said it was an unprotected village, so she had to scalp them.” Wonder if she picked that up from dad Brad, who happily collected scalps in the 2009 Quentin Tarantino film Inglourious Basterds? Of course, when Brad, 46, found out about the incident, he made Shi apologize to her sister. How would you have handled the situation, HollyMoms?
Taking care of Brangelina’s brood is no easy task for their team of nannies, especially when Shiloh’s older brothers Pax, 7, and Maddox, 9, get in on the action. “Once, the three of them tricked a nanny into sitting on a chair covered with wet paint,” reveals the insider. “Shiloh was falling over laughing.”
Shiloh definitely wants to be one of the boys. She likes to wear their hand-me-downs — including boxer shorts, says a source close to the family. And she loves weapons, especially swords — just like Maddox.
That all sounds like normal sibling behavior to me, but I do think it is a little strange that Shiloh is fascinated by dead animals. We recently reported that Shiloh asked her mom if she could keep a dead bird as a pet, but Shiloh doesn’t just want one dead pet — according to Star, she wants a zoo filled with dead animals! Gross! “She also told her nannies she wants to see a dead person up close,” explains a source. “Brad said absolutely not, but Angelina is all for Shiloh’s morbid curiosity.” I don’t really think it’s such a good idea for Angelina to encourage her little girl to see deed people. Shiloh clearly does take after her mom in many ways — she’s been spotted out and about wearing temporary tattoos. I wonder when Angie will let her get a real one?
