Zahara Jolie-Pitt’s Spelman classmates hoping for Brad Pitt appearance on campus despite estrangement

He’s still a big man on campus.

Even though Zahara Marley Jolie-Pitt seemed to drop Brad Pitt’s famous last name when she joined a sorority at Spellman College, some students at the school are still holding out for a Pitt stop.

”It was already big news when she decided to attend school in Atlanta, and her mom is really nice to everyone when she comes to visit,” said a student of Zahara. “But in all honesty we want to see her daddy.”

The 18-year-old recently crossed over from being a pledge to becoming an active member of the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority, announcing in a clip that went viral, “My name is Zahara Marley Jolie… Coming all the way from the Golden State in the city that is full of angels, Los Angeles.”

After the ceremony, her movie star mom, Angelina Jolie, attended a welcome lunch at the local Whitley Hotel, along with Zahara’s brothers, Pax,19, and Maddox, 22.

Zahara’s dad was not on the scene.

Students were excited to see Angelina Jolie at Spelman College.

Said a school insider, “It was big talk when her mom helped her move into the dorm last year. So now everyone is crossing their fingers for at least a quick drive by and graduation, but that is years away.”

Angelina has also attended the school’s homecoming.

Born in Ethiopia, Zahara was adopted at 7 months old. Pitt, 59, and Jolie, 48, announced their divorce in 2016 after 12 years together. Aside from Zahara, they share five other kids: Maddox, Pax, Shiloh, 17, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 15.

The mother of six attended a celebratory lunch.

But they’ve been locked in a bitterly contentious, headline-grabbing legal battle ever since — from skirmishes over custody of their kids to ownership of a famed French winery, Chateau Miraval.

A rep for Pitt did not comment.

But Pitt said in an interview with Vanity Fair last year of Zahara attending Spelman: “I’m so proud of her… She’s so smart. She’s going to flourish even more at college. It’s an exciting and beautiful time to find her own way and pursue her interests. I’m so proud.

Zahara is originally from Ethiopia.

He also said, “Where does the time go, right? They grow up too fast. It brings a tear to the eye.”

Said a source: “Zahara is actually really nice despite what many thought [because] she would be coming from celebrity parents. The fact that she pledged AKA made her even more relatable. She is now a part of a lifelong sisterhood.” 

AKA is the first historically Black sorority.
