The natural mother of Angelina Jolie’s adopted Ethiopian daughter Zahara has made a heartfelt plea to the superstar actress telling her: ‘Please just let me talk to my daughter’.
Poverty stricken Mentewab Dawit Lebiso told Daily Mail Online she is desperate to be part of her 12-year-old daughter’s life – and called for Jolie to get custody of her daughter in the bitter split with Brad Pitt.
She dreams of one day meeting the girl she gave up as a tiny infant – but said she would settle for the chance to simply hear her voice.
‘I just want her to know that I am alive and here and long to be able to speak with her. 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,’ said Mentewab, who ekes out a living in Ethiopia.
Mentewab is the first to admit that the Jolie-Pitts have given her daughter everything she could wish for, adding: ‘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.
But she adds: ‘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.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have agreed to work together for the sake of their family.
The actors released a joint statement Monday evening stating that they have reached an agreement to handle their divorce in a private forum and will keep future details of their divorce confidential by utilizing a private judge.

It concludes: “The parents are committed to act as a united front to effectuate recovery and reunification.”
For the past several weeks, Pitt, 53, and Jolie, 41, had been trading harsh accusations in filings in Los Angeles Superior Court, but recently both agreed to seal sensitive records relating to their six children.
Pitt and Jolie — who are parents to Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8 — have a voluntary temporary custody agreement in place that allows Pitt supervised visitation with the children.
Latest information we have is that AliKiba and this girl named Sharon Fabrinsnky are an item…and there’s proof to that.
Recently, a cozy photo of the two emerged online, sending tongues wagging on whether the two could actually be banging.
In the photo, the ‘Aje’ hit maker was seen shirtless in what seemed like a Hotel, while Sharon on the other hand, was clad in a simple dress.
By mere fact that Alikiba was shirtless, various snoops think he’s already enjoying the central fruits of Sharon who is a fast raising actress based in Kenya.
The insanely hot, dimpled and light skinned Sharon seems to be high in the clouds, as she now frequently litters her social media handles with photos and videos of Ali Kiba.

After a recent wrangle between Winnie and Ray Supasta over her past and the nude pictures that she used to exude in Kampala, musician Winnie Nwagi has come out to reveal what actually happened between the two.
The Musawo singer also dismissed rumors that the two could be in an intimate relationship.
Winnie confirmed that there is no relationship between them and that she has never met him. She said that she got to know about him only when he posted about her.
“There is no relationship. I don’t know him as a person. In fact I got to know him after what he posted about me. He went to my original Facebook page and downloaded my pictures and shared them. I don’t know him and he too doesn’t know me. I saw he posted a picture of me and him but I don’t remember him because it was taken at one of my shows where I took pictures with my fans,” the bubbly singer said.
Some people just don’t want Beyonce to win. Dwayne Walker, the man who claims he designed the original Roc-A-Fella logo, has filed a lawsuit against Beyonce for the use of his design in her 2013 video with Jay Z, “Drunk In Love.”
According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, Walker says he owns the rights to the Roc logo and did not give permission of its use in Bey’s video. Although the logo only seems to show up once on Jay Z’s pendant, Walker believes he deserves a pay cut for its unauthorized appearance in the steamy black and white clip. And even though Jay is the one rocking the chain, the rapper’s name was not mentioned in the suit, TMZ reports.
Interestingly enough, this isn’t the first time Walker has tried to make a buck off of his logo design. In 2012, Walker sued Jay Z and Dame Dash for $7 million, accusing the former business partners of copyright infringement. Luckily for Jay and Dame, a judge threw the case out, ruling that a contract that Walker reportedly signed 20 years prior, prohibited him from collecting any royalties for the logo’s use. He may have lost the war, but it looks like he’s hoping not to strike out with the new lawsuit.
