Birth Mother Begs to See Zahara Jolie-Pitt


Back in 2005 actress Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt adopted a six-month old girl from Ethiopia believed to have been an AIDs orphan [click here if you missed that].

Now the child's biological mother is begging for access...

According to reports Mentewab Dawit claims her mother lied to Angelia Jolie, claiming Mentwab was dead, and now she wants to see her child.

Mentewab actually came forward two years after the adoption but was not acknowledged [click here if you missed that].

Now she tells The Daily Mail  
“I do not want my daughter back but just to be in contact with her and be able to call her up and talk with her.”
“Angelina has been more of a mother to her than I have ever been. She has been with her since she was a baby, but that does not mean I do not miss her. I miss her all the time. I think about her every day and long to hear her voice or see her face."
“I know when she has a birthday, but I am sad because I can’t celebrate it with her. I would so much want to celebrate with her on her birthday and other special days.”

Lord Have Mercy... May God help this woman be reunited with her child. I wonder how Zahara is going to feel knowing that her mother was ignored all these years....

All of Angelina's adoptions were shady. She lied and said all the kids mothers were dead but they are all very much alive. Still, those kids aint going back to their bio parents. They're fully Americanized.

This is a shame. I remember this back in the day and once it was found Z's mom was alive, Angelina should have either rescinded the adoption or at the very least allowed that woman access to her child. Her grandmother LIED probably because Angelina was over there throwing $$$$ around.

Something similar happened with Madonnas adoption of Mercy. She was supposed to build schools and help the village but she never did.

These white folks adopting these black children for other purposes but that's a whole 'nother story......smh

Brad is finally stepping up or lowering himself (depends on how you see it) to Angelina's "covert" media attacks.
All this time I thought Zahara's parents were dead. I have always side-eyed celebrity African adoptions. You mean to tell me with all the orphans we have here in the US, they couldn't adopt one? I don't trust Madonna, Angelina, Charlize or Sandra. All of them are shady in my book.

This woman clear as day is saying she doesn't want her child, yet some of you are saying Angelina (& Brad, as Zahara was his first child!) Should have rescinded the adoption? GTFO. There is REASON why the grandmother had baby Z - because the bio mother dumped Z on HER mother.

Zahara is 12 years old, and when she is an adukt it will be her choice if she wants to reach out. But now is not an appropriate time for that, and the bio mother is not owed anything. That's never a requirement in adoptions, domestic or international.

I don't mind Zahara being adopted by the Pitts, however let's be clear. Angelina adopted this girl to change her image from homewrecking whore to humanitarian saint. Bradley had no other choice but to go along. Personally, I don't think Brad gives a damn about those kids. He's hardly been around them for the past several years. I think Z would've been just fine with her grandmother.

this is a tough call but if I was Angie i would talk to my daughter and see if she wants to see her mother or what not. I think with adoption comes blurred lines meaning the parent may have a change of heart and meanwhile the child is being brought up with a whole other family and now there is love and bonding involved.

Why now? Angelina's adoptions were legal not shady, THIS is shady. If Brad had anything to do with this, he's just using this to hurt Angelina because the whole time he was being "daddy" he wasn't thinking about Z's momma. People are so hard and have so much hatred for Angelina but Brad did something...Bad. why would he need supervised visits. Why would the courts go against him? Brad did something.
And Angelina's cause is children. Is she supposed to let Brad abuse one of their kids and still fight for rights of other children?
I hope if Z wants to meet her biological mother and it's beneficial to Z, it happens. But I would sure check her bank amounts for any big deposits from Mr. Pitt!

I agree with 8:03 & 6:09. @ 7:04 Angelina already adopted two boys before adopting Z so she had not need to set an image with Z. This is not the first time the bio mom came from hiding to snatch Z. She came out years ago saying same thing. Something in milk not clean. Z looks just like her mom though

The adoptions were shady and you can google them if you like for that proof. Brad didn't do anything "bad" to the kids, he took the fall for the DRUGS on the plane so they wouldn't get charged with trafficking and thus, lost all those kids and ruined their careers. They've been done as a couple for years. Angelina had to save face so she threw out that bogus story of Brad abusing Maddox to have an excuse to divorce.

I believe you @8:58

She gave that child away. That child has a mother. A real parent would put that child first, leave her alone and let her be happy. Why bring confusion in her life because she wants to attend a birthday party or two. She doesn't want to actually be a parent. She wants to slide through every now and then. NOPE! I say sue her ass for back child support if it's like that.

ITrue said...

Annnnddd some of ya'll not listening. She didn't want to be a parent then and she does not want to be one now. If Angelina gave up custody (which WTF) that child would be an orphan.

This was discussed on LSA the other day. It's been stated that her mother abandoned her. It's also been stated that adoptions in foreign countries aren't as cut & dry as they are in the U.S.

Personally, I don't feel like Angelina did anything wrong. People want rich, white celebs to be so evil. But they have the money to stop shady adoptions. The regular everyday Americans who go over there do not have money to stop the process and even after they find out about shady dealings, many decide to adopt anyways.

What do you mean that Brad had no choice but to go along with it? With what? Angelina was doing her UN work before she got with Brad, and she and Brad weren't even married when they both, as a unit, adopted Zahara. I'm far from a stan of Angelina, but I'm over the thoughts that some people have on men. It's as if they're invalids, with some deeming men as week inconsequential individuals who cannot think for themselves and do whatever a woman tells them. Men cannot be stolen - they choose. He chose to divorce Jen and get with Angelina, and he chose to have a gaggle of kids with her.
