We’re still trying to pinpoint the exact moment Angelina Jolie decided that her relationship with Brad Pitt was no longer worth fighting for, and a new report claims a fight between him and her teenage sons could be to blame. We have all the details, right here.
We were totally stunned to hear that the FBI was looking into child abuse claims against Brad Pitt, 52, after a witness called in a complaint about him getting drunk on a plane and being physically and verbally abusive to his children. Apparently the incident happened on Sept. 14, just days before Angelina Jolie, 41, filed for divorce on Sept. 19, and it may have been the final straw.
However, a source told E! News that it was nowhere near as serious as the reports make it sound, and was just typical family drama. “This comes down to the kind of disagreements that sometimes occur between teenage boys and their father,” they revealed, apparently talking about 15-year old Maddox and 12-year-old Pax. “This is where this situation has spiraled from, and Angelina as a mother can be very protective.” We can’t blame her! However, we’re sure the kids would never want to feel responsible for their parents getting divorced so we hope this isn’t the only reason.
Sources tell E! that Brad denies the claims of abuse completely, but he will keep working with law enforcement to prove he didn’t hurt his kids. “He will continue to do what’s in the best interest of the children…[He] is most concerned about his children and the best thing for them is to keep the situation private.”
More and more shocking details continue to emerge since Angelina filed for divorce from Brad on Sept. 19, and asked for full custody of their 6 kids. Originally, her people claimed that the one and only reason she was splitting was because she didn’t like how he was raising the children. We didn’t know exactly what that meant, but TMZ also reported that he abused marijuana and alcohol, which inflamed his anger, so it doesn’t sound good. We hope the family works this out soon!
