Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were once upon a time an exemplary couple of Hollywood, someone people the world overlooked up for the amazing relation they shared. But like the relationship blossomed right in front of our eyes, their love life crumbled in front of our eyes as well. When the divorce of the couple was announced, there was a mass pity party among the fans who could not believe Brangelina were separating.
The famous couple got a lot of attention in 2016 when news broke Brad Pitt verbally assaulted her one of the six children while under the influence of alcohol. The circus of their divorce was televised, and a lot of digital ink was spilled on the demise of their relationship. The couple separated in September of 2016, and the court designated them both single in 2019.
The problem of the couple separating was the fact which was going to take care of all the kids. They share six kids together, and Angelina asked to grant her full custody of all the kids. Zahara Marley Jolie-Pitt is one of the kids the couple shares together, and she was the second child Jolie adopted in 2005.
Who is Zahara Marley Jolie-Pitt’s Biological Mother? When was She Adopted by Angelina Jolie?
Zahara Marley Jolie-Pitt was born on 8 January 2005 in Awasa, Ethiopia, to her mother, Mentewab Dawit Lebiso. She named the little girl Yemasrech because its meaning was “good news.” The name and whereabouts of her biological father are still not clear because Zahara’s mother was raped when he was a teenager, and at the time of her birth, she was only 19 years old.
Fearing the repercussions of the birth of the child, she was going to face from her family, Mentewab hid her pregnancy and only revealed it to her mother when the stomach grew beyond any possibility of her being able to hide it. Her mother was supportive of the child's birth but needed to give her up after she was not able to take care of the baby.
Angelina visited the orphanage in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and on 6 July 2005 took custody of Zahara. She brought the little baby girl over to the United States, and the people at the orphanage told her Zahara was a AIDS kid. So as soon as the actress arrived in the States, she got her tested for HIV and AIDS, but the tests came back negative.
