• Angelina Jolie has been attending the global press tour for her new film “Eternals” with her children 
  • The actress has been accused of parading her kids to the press
  • Brad Pitt allegedly never used their children for publicity, a report claims

Angelina Jolie has been accused of using her kids with ex-husband Brad Pitt for publicity.

The 46-year-old Hollywood actress is currently busy promoting her new Marvel film “Eternals,” and she’s been making headlines by attending the global press tour for the movie with her children.

“Angelina’s using the kids,” an unnamed source close to Pitt claimed to the New York Post Saturday. “It’s hard to understand how this behavior of parading them around is in their best interest.”

When the actress showed up at the film's premiere in Los Angeles on Oct. 18, she turned heads as she was joined by five of her kids, Maddox, 20, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 15, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 13.

Jolie’s second eldest son Pax, 17, was not around. But his absence was not really what made a big impact on the press. It was Shiloh’s appearance at the movie premiere that quickly sparked buzz online.

For years, Shiloh has been seen sporting suits on the red carpet. But for the event, she ditched her tomboy image and donned a tan Gabriela Hearst dress Jolie wore to a trip to France this summer.

The 15-year-old also sported a dress at the U.K. “Eternals” premiere — a black-and-white Dior dress that Jolie first wore for the 2019 press conference for “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil,” according to Harper’s Bazaar. Shiloh’s siblings also rocked formal outfits, while their mom stunned in her custom Valentino haute couture ensemble that featured an oversized black blazer and maxi skirt.

The source went on to compare Jolie and Pitt’s parenting, noting that unlike the former, the latter is rarely photographed with their children in public. The actor has also refrained from speaking about their kids in interviews.

“Brad never takes the kids out publicly — and he rarely talks about them,” the source told the New York Post.

In response to the claims, an unnamed insider who knows Jolie better than the Hollywood actor told the outlet that the “Salt” star never forced their kids to go to public events with her.

“The children are, not surprisingly given Brad and Angelina’s characters, very independent-minded. They don’t do things they don’t want to do,” said the second source.

Jolie and Pitt were together for 12 years, but they were only married for two years. They announced their split in 2016. The two have since been at war over their children.

Last week, Pitt’s petition to have his ongoing custody battle with his ex reviewed was denied by the California Supreme Court. Pitt made an appeal in September to be granted more time with his five minor kids.
