Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt no longer married as actress drops ex-husband’s name years after filing for divorce

Angelina Jolie has dropped Brad Pitt’s surname from her name after the pair were declared “officially single” by a judge, despite their divorce not being finalised. 

The couple, who tied the knot in 2014, are no longer married after a three-year separation battle. Lawyers for the pair had asked for a bifurcated judgement, which meant they could be declared legally single before all issues in the divorce were resolved. 

It is unclear what issues remain unresolved but Jolie, 43, filed papers claiming Pitt, 55, was not paying sufficient child support. His attorneys have disputed the claims. 

Jolie and Pitt have six children together – Maddox, 17, Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 12, and 10-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.
