Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s split may top the charts as the worst Hollywood breakup ever, but there are some other stiff competitors.

Pitt, 60, and Jolie, 49, — who split in 2016 — have been battling it out in court over custody issues and their French winery, Château Miraval. Now, the former couple’s kids are turning against him.

In May, 18-year-old Shiloh Jolie-Pitt filed to have her father’s last name removed from her surname. A source exclusively told Us Weekly in the latest cover story that the reports that Shiloh hired and paid for her own lawyer to handle the case are true.

Shiloh appears to be following in her siblings’ footsteps. Zahara, 19, introduced herself in November as “Zahara Marley Jolie” while joining the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority at Spelman College, while Vivienne, 15, was credited with her mom’s name in the Playbill for The Outsiders: A New Musical in May. (Pitt and Jolie also share Maddox, 22, Pax, 20, and Vivienne’s twin, Knox.)
