Angelina Jolie has reportedly been left furious after her boyfriend Brad Pitt’s mother Jane insisted on buying ‘girly’ clothes for her notoriously tomboyish granddaughter Shiloh.
Despite Shiloh and her five siblings being allowed to choose their own clothes by their famous parents, Jane Pitt is said to have purchased a series of feminine outfits for the six-year-old.
According to the Evening Standard, Angelina found Jane’s move ‘disrespectful’ for her to buy such clothes for Shiloh, considering it is well known that she likes to dress in similar style to her brothers.

A source told the newspaper: ‘It’s well documented that Shiloh likes to dress like a boy.
‘But Jane still insists on buying her fairy costumes and princess dresses, which Angelina finds very disrespectful.’
It is the second time this year that
Angelina has been left angry by Mrs Pitt, after Brad’s mother wrote a
letter to a local newspaper in the United States urging Americans to
vote against President Obama in the upcoming elections because of his
support for gay marriage.

In a letter to the Springfield News-Leader in Missouri urging support for Republican candidate Mitt Romney, Mrs Pitt wrote: ‘Any Christian should spend much time in prayer before refusing to vote for a family man with high morals, business experience, who is against abortion, and shares Christian conviction concerning homosexuality just because he is a Mormon.’
Angelina and Brad, who are prominent supporters of gay marriage and President Obama, were said to be appalled by the letter.
They once said they would not marry until same-sex marriage was legalised in the States, but became engaged after pressure from their six children.

The source said: ‘Brad and Angelina were devastated by Jane’s actions. They have worked hard campaigning for equality, working closely with Barack Obama.
‘Angelina called Jane and told her she believes she’s setting a bad example for the kids.’
A source told Star magazine at the time of the letter: ‘Jane has never wanted to talk politics with Angelina.
‘She knew it would cause greater issues for them, and she wanted to try to have a relationship with the mother of her grandkids. She never thought her letter would be such a big deal.’
Brad once said of his mother’s outspoken views: ‘She’s very loving, very open, genuine, and it’s hilarious because she always gets painted as a she-devil.’
There were once rumours that Jane Pitt and husband Bill did not get along with their son’s long-term partner, favouring his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston instead.
But such myths were dispelled when they stepped out together in December last year to support Angelina at the premiere of her first venture in the director’s chair, The Land of Milk and Honey.

Perhaps Brad’s mother sees things differently than Angelina. After all, she has spoken to Shiloh. I always thought it was odd that the adopted daughter is very girly. I’m waiting to hear that Shiloh has decided to change her gender. As for Mrs. Pitt writing a letter against Obama…at least someone in the family has some sense.
I would be “furious” too if that bigoted woman got anywhere near my kids
I would be annoyed too if someone bought my child things they knew they would dislike. It is disrespectful to knowingly buy someone something they will hate. Just as I wouldn’t give some of my deeply religious Christian friends a book about atheism and I wouldn’t give a Bible to a Muslim friend. Or pork to a Jewish friend. Or a cooking book for meat to a Vegetarian friend. If Shiloh hates frilly girls clothes then buying them for her is pointless – money would have been much better spent elsewhere. It’s like my grandfather, he speaks English and Welsh. He KNOWS I don’t speak a word of Welsh, but he often refuses to speak English in my presence, as he believes my Mother should have taught me Welsh, It’s rude, disrespectful and only done to highlight his own personal bugbear about my Mum marrying an Englishman (they don’t like English people) and my not being able to speak Welsh. I suspect Pitt’s Mum is just buying the clothes to highlight her disaproval of her granddaughter’s clothes!
Omg get a grip! Isn’t she your daughter…a little GIRL?!
Why would they allow Shiloh to ONLY wear what SHE wants to wear, and NOT what they ( her parents) choose for her to wear? Some times a boyish striped polo shirt, other times a girlish ribboned/lacy t-shirt, or somewhere in between. what’s with being one way or the other? Why not a mix of both styles?
ohh how disgusting of brad’s mum to buy her granddaughter girly clothes! you have committed a deep sin, you really have! lol..gimme a break!
first it could be all hype,who knows where this came from.But even if it is true Pitt’s mama does not have to agree with everything Jolie says and does.If she were going to be my new daughter n law I would hate it.I really can’t see how his mother did anything wrong
@Mermaid: You CAN’T ‘brainwash’ someone into being gay or lesbian. Jesus. And don’t tell me that’s not what you meant.
That’s what a Grandmother is FOR — to spoil, and to gently-and-wordlessly offer options and little ‘luxuries’ that the nuclear family doesn’t.
Most girls LOVE ‘dress-up’ and fantasy,even Angelina is currently working in a MAJOR fairytale– based on Sleeping Beauty– so why is it a crime to offer a grandchild some fun ‘fairy and princess’ costumes or even frilly clothes?
Not talking ‘major lifestyle issue’ here — lighten up!
“stepping out in a public venue ” is not a sign of anyone getting along .
Being a mother in law is tough, but it seems obvious here that Jane Pitt values her own freedom to say anything anywhere, to the preferences of her son and wife of her grandchildren. I find the insistence on buying fairy clothes and dresses for Shiloh to be a message from the old woman to the young mother and one that shows no respect or consideration.
Not what I would want in a mother in law.
