New allegations against Brad Pitt have emerged in his divorce from Angelina Jolie, and they’re incredibly shocking. The actor is allegedly under investigation for child abuse stemming from a scary incident on a plane Sept. 14, according to a new report. Get the details here.
The LAPD and Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services are reportedly investigating Brad Pitt, 52, for allegedly becoming verbally and physically abusive with his children on a private plane last week, TMZ reports. The site claims that the incident is what led Angelina Jolie, 41, to file for divorce on Sept. 19.
The actor allegedly got drunk on a private plane while traveling with his kids and Angelina on Sept. 14, and during the flight, he allegedly began screaming and acting physical with the children who were on-board (it’s unclear which of the six were present). The situation was anonymously reported to CPS, and Brad and Angie were interviewed, according to TMZ. As the alleged investigation continues, the kids are expected to be questioned, as well.
Meanwhile, the 51-year-old is insistent that he did not act abusive toward his children, a source tells the gossip site. After his wife filed divorce papers earlier this week, Brad revealed in a statement that he was “saddened” by the decision, but made it clear that his priority is “the well-being of our kids.”
As for Angie, she publicly stated that her decision to file for divorce was “made for the health of the family,” and prior reports claimed she was ending the relationship because she didn’t agree with Brad’s parenting. That, of course, would match up with the new allegations against the Moneyball star. Plus, she’s also asked for full physical custody of the six children.
