MediaTakeOut.com has learned that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s adopted daughter Zahara was born with a serious condition. The condition, hip dysplasia, is a congenital condition in which the thigh bone is improperly connected to the hip. This condition, if not treated could severely impact the way that little Zahara walks and runs.
But the news gets worse for baby Zahara. MediaTakeOut.com discovered that the only way to be sure to correct the disorder is with a risky surgery. According to Dr Richard Berger, a Chicago orthopedic surgeon, “There is a risk of infection, scar tissue forming on the hip, and the risk [of death] with anesthesia … Surgery is the last option because of the possible risks.”
It’s not clear whether Zahara will undergo the corrective surgery.
Which explains why she is always being carried!!!!
*Light bulb turns on*
Hope for the best!!
I heard this on another website and they didnt say anything about life threatening!!
I'm with you Divamarie!
Awww whats wrong wit the baby?
POOR BABY... SHE IS SO CUTE
So that is why they are always carrying that child...poor Z with her cute self. I pray the surgery goes well and she recovers.
Hope jolie and pitt makes the right decision
What's a "BABAY"?
awww thats a shame
I think the Jolie-Pitts had some homemade relaxer put on Z's hair because I know for a fact, Just For Me, doesn't leave you with that, swarm of killer flies, look.
She is so cute....
She's always being carried because you can't expect a child to walk around when there are 1,000 photogs trying to get a picture. There is no way they can let those kids walk in that environment.
I thought only dogs got hip dysplasia. Hmmmm... Learn something new every day.
This baby may need hip surgery and someone is concerned about her "HAIR"? how insane
Besides she is a baby...every kids hair looks like that at the end of a day.But lets weight the issues...hair...or physical health...which is more important.??? Zahara is so well of she can get all the hair care she desires when she comes of age.
oh gosh thats so sad
Per wikipedia.com: In humans, hip dysplasia manifests in early life at a rate of about 4 per thousand. It usually manifests from birth, is more common in girls, highest in firstborns, and is associated in part with conditions such as breech birth and other conditions.
Which may explain why they carry her. But I'm sorry MTO lies so much, it's a catch 22 here, pick and choose what you believe. Wow!
awwww! hope she gets thru it@!
This is not a life threatening surgery PLEASE DO NOT BELIEVE MTO.. but lets keep the baby in our prayers
Pray for the baby!
Pls Pls This time let MTO be exaggerating. Say it aint sooooo My prayers are with the family she is a blessed child. Everything will be okay!!
Don't know what to say but it will be fine
ALL TOGETHER NOW - A[SPAM]!!!!!!!!!
LET'S PRAY FOR THE BABY - WE LOVE YOU ZAHARA - GET WELL SOON BABY!
Angelina Jolie and Brad are going to be there with her every step. I'm sure Brad is going to hire the best doctors to work on his baby..
Pray for them and wish her full recovery!
You go Zahara! Get well soon baby!
SHE'LL BE AIGHT!
any surgery can be life threatening. They are not saying her condition is life threatening but the surgery is. They say that to most parents who have a child undergoing these types of surgeries. Surgery is very serious.People are so busy trying to "BUST" MTO..they are not thinking...just trying to *** down everything they post..its its so much lies and nonsense why read if it ruffles your feathers so?
I hope its not true at all but people *** get so bent out of shape over what is clearly a GOSSIP blog.
I know they do carry her ALOT.
I WILL KEEP THE FAMILY IN MY PRAYERS
TheTRUTH555- *** THE F#$*** UP!!!! We are talking about something serious and all you can think about his how her hair looks. Now is not the time *** have some respect ***!
AWWW...I HOPE SHE'LL BE ALL RIGHT..
Poor little Z. She'll b fine
Poor baby, I hope she'll be okay.
I was always wondering why they were carrying her around when her feet are practically dragging on the floor. This explains it. God Bless her though, hope she gets well (assuming MTO isn't exaggerating)
MTO your info is incorrect. You need to recheck your facts.
THE PROBABLY ARENT, BUT SHE IS SO *** CUTE.
She'll be awwight. They can afford the right doctors and specialists if needed.
thank you jeangrey i was just about to comment on that issue. anyway, i hope she comes out of this ok.
about the hair i.e.
I don't know about this one. Need to research this further.
I always wondered why the carried her everywhere they go.But if this is true, I hope that the surgery goes well.
MTO, you people are a bunch of idiots that hype things up..the risks that the doctors described are common risks for all surgical proceedures..Brad and Angelina are going to get the best surgical team in the world to work on this little girl, so Im not worried one bit..now if Zahara was a child that lived in Bed-Stuy Brooklyn, and had to go to the county hospital because she only has Medicaid-then I would be worried
SHE A LIL CUTIE,SHE'LL BE OK
praying for her
but that second paragraph that MTO discovered....with any surgery you run the risk of infection and reaction to anesthesia
JAH HAS PLACED ZAHARA WITH A LOVING FAMILY THAT WILL TAKE CARE OF HER.... WILL KEEP HER IN MY PRAYERS...
@TheTRUTH555 I don't see no files..
shes so cute
my daughter had hip dysplasia when she was born. all the doctors did was put her in a brace since she was young and her bones were still soft. she wore the brace ( that put her legs in a 90 degree angle) for 24 hours for 5 months and the hip sockets formed right. if caught early surgey is not needed. I pray everything turns out for the best. since she is still young the brace should work too.
Hopefully she will get her hips fixed so she can run away from her crazy white mama!
Exactly @ Queensheba, my cousin was born with the same condition, though his condition as a bit more severe. he wore the brace up until he was a bout 16, though. He has a slight limp, but other than that, he's fine.
SMH @ the comments about the child's hair...so remedial.
@ queensheba757, thanks for sharing your story...
I will have this little girl in my prayers...I know it must be so tough for Brad and Angie...As any parent knows, nothing cuts into your heart more than seeing your child hurting and in pain.

This is for all the readers that allow MTO to play with their heart strings:
Yesterday I posted a story about how Zahara Jolie-Pitt needed hip surgery, because her hips don't work or something. Well, that was all a lie or so they say. Her hips DO lie.
Brad's rep said, "It's not true, and I told the magazine that printed it - but they chose to run it anyways." I feel so violated.
Great, now I have to spend my Friday *** taking down my prayer shrine to Z's hip.
It looks like Angie and Brad only carry her around, because Z owns their ***.
I'm only telling you this, because I have nothing else to tell you. Slow. I say we eff all this and go and get drunk. It's after 12 which makes it OK.
ALL surgeries are "potentially life threatening". MTO is exaggerating. the risk factors they give are risk factors in pretty much any surgery. they are trying to make it sound like the girl is dying or something. but she is in my prayers.
her parents have enough money to get her the best care available. Hopefully she'll be able to get her condition corrected and live a normal and happy life.
for the bbw
I read this on dlisted yesterday but today they retracted the story ans said that brad said that it was not true
read for yourself
I LOVE KIDS THE BABY IS IN MY PRAYERS.
EVERY SURGERY IS POTENTIALLY LIFE THREATENING!
Even so-called simple ones. There are risks with every one of them. Even the freakin' anesthesia poses a threat.
But... surgery on kids is scary, and I pray that all goes well. Kids usually heal quicker and better than us grown folks too, so best wishes.
I love little Z and not just because I'm black! She is soo cute. I hope this is inflated like 80% of your stories MTO. But if not, my prayers go out to her and the Jolie-Pitt "Fam". I love that they have a home full of different ethnicities. They are beautiful and genuinely care about others. It's an example that we need in this crazy *** celebrity world! So what Angie stole Brad from Jen. I don't like her anyway. She didn't do anything to me but I can't stand looking at her with her long chin and stupid hairstyle that needed to change 5 years ago!!
CATEYES20 AND JEANGREY, I so agree with you. If this is a true story and I repeat "IF", how darn crazy is it to be worried about Z's hair. If Z's hair was the only concern of pitt and jolie regarding their daughter that would be WONDERFUL. I guarantee you that-that far from their minds. What if it was your daughter, your mother, your friend, YOU!!!
Maybe her hair isn't a concern of theirs right now. They obviously love her beyond that. They loved her so much that they adopted regardless of the condition of her hair. There are some really ignorant, misplaced concerns of people in this world.
Oh wow. i wish her ther best!.
@shay40-oh *** the *** up, relax and live a little. you act like sombody stabbed yo mama. i bet you suffer from high blood pressure lmbao
@blackisback..........you can't and wont *** me up b'c I dont shrink back. The way you responding let me know you your pressure is high. get some rest and call the doctor tomorrow. MIDGET MIND
@shay40-your cornball *** sounds old and weak lmbao. loosen up granny. what you gonna do now, put up your E-wrinkled decrepit *** and call me out to E-brawl.lmba[SPAM]ooo
i dont tango with old people. i'll leave u to talk to yourself, nothing new to you.
@thetruth455: There is a story about a beautiful young child needing to have surgery for something and could end up being life threatening surgery at that and you are talking about her *** hair?! WTF is wrong with you?
BLACKISBACK----why would I be interested in
E-brawling with you. There is enough black on black crime. There enough brawling period. You have your opinion and I have mine. You came @ me and I had to get @ cha'. When I something to say I AM GOING TO SAY IT.
"I sound old and weak" why b'c I am not calling you B's and using profanity. Not my character and You are not about to be allowed to change me. enough said, I'M DONE AND DONE MOVE ON!!!
Okay now I understand why she gets carried all the time....AWWW poor Zee!!! At least she has powerful parents to get her the best possible care.
BLESSINGS TO HER AND HER FAMILY..........
And for those who say Oh now I see why she gets carried????????
*** THE F*UCK UP................... This baby is followed daily be photographers, news, stalkers etc.....I wouldn't let my child walk either so some stupid MUTHA*F*UCKER CAN RUN HER DOWN OR RUN HER OVER TRYN GET A PICTURE......
My prayers go out to her, her family and the doctors that will perform the operation.
Joy....hun it ain't that serious....the reason I asked is because you hardly ever see her walk. That's *** because a lot of celebrities kids are walking around not giving a *** about no *** paparrazzi......
WHAT YOU GONNA CARRY YOUR CHILD ON PIGGYBACK UNTIL HE'S 57?....gimme a *** break.
aaah....i feel bad for the girl..they should just take the risks and get the surgery because if they wait to long she probably wont be able to walk again
I hope her surgery goes well
I DIDN'T ADDRESS YOU SO WHY YOU ADRESSING ME?
I am sure your mama probally still carrying your as*s........................ IF YOU STILL LIVING WITH HER...................LMAO
[link to external website removed]
She'll be ok.
Joy come on now....why you gotta bring my Moms all up in this? Ummm....nooo...haven't lived with Moms for years...you addressed a comment I made so that's why I addressed you. Again this is an opinionated site....why take it personal and ***? On dat not happy piggyback ridin' to ya....I'm done addressing you from this point.
should read "on that NOTE happy piggybackin'...."
AWW I HOPE EVERYTHING GOES WELL
stop blowing it up, of course there's a risk for death it always is during surgery. this child will be in the best of care and although the procedure isn't nothing the sneeze at, it's also not as complicated as u think-been there and done that and my momma wasn't rich.
Poor baby, wish the best for her!
i have no reason to think that they will not get zahara the best healthcare possible.
there are risks with any surgeries!!!!!
Zahara is truly a blessed child. She has parents who love her and will do everything possible to see that she gets the best care in the world. As with any family this must be a very hard time for them. Wish them well.
AWWWWWWWWW I HOPE THAT LIL GIRL GETS BETTER
I am so proud no one responded to TheTRUTH555 crazy tale, hope she hit herself in the head with the bottle she drank out of to get herself drunk.
I LOVE HER EYES AND HAIR ;)
BUT NO WONDER SHE WALKS AND RUNS FUNNY AND THEY ALWAYS CARRYING HER BUT I HOPE GOD BLESSES HER WITH A SUCCESSFUL SURGERY IF SHE NEEDS IT ;)
OH BROTHER!!! first- that little girl is NOT cute!! 2ND there are tons of children SICK...and their parents arent brad and angelina who can afford to buy the best doctors...she will be aight....that kid was living in squalor with flies hovering over her eyes..a little hip dysplasia never KILLED anyone!!!! post some sh!t about children with cancer/leukemia and then you might get my attention
gigi2007 said it. These are all the normal risk for any surgical procedure.MTO is full of it... AGAIN!!
my sister had this when she was that age and it wasn't life-threatning. and i have never heard of this being life threatning! if so...i hope the best for her
This is not true...I hope...such a beautiful little girl...she will be fine.
