Angelina Jolie and her six kids have been interviewed by the FBI, according to a bombshell Oct. 19 report. Authorities are trying to get to the bottom of Brad Pitt’s alleged fight with their son Maddox, and two agents visited Angelina at home to get the ball rolling. Here’s the update.
Angelina Jolie, 41, and her children were interviewed on Oct. 18 by two FBI agents, TMZ reports. The agents went to Angelina’s home in Malibu, law enforcement sources tell the site, and interviewed her and Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, Shiloh, 10 and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8, for more than three hours total.
Apparently, there is not yet “an official investigation” underway; rather, the FBI is in a “fact-finding” stage, according to TMZ. In other words, they’re still determining whether there’s reasonable evidence for an investigation.
As for the details of the interview, sources tell the site that “the agents wanted Angelina and the kids to walk through the incident step-by-step, but they spent a lot of time trying to pin down the location of the airplane at the time it happened”. If the plane wasn’t in U.S. airspace when Brad Pitt, 52, had his alleged altercation with Maddox, that could change things.
The agents also allegedly questioned Angelina about what happened after their plane touched ground in Minnesota to refuel. State officials “might have jurisdiction”, which would also affect the potential case.
It’s pretty complicated, so it’s no wonder Angelina’s “endgame is for the whole thing to just go away”, as sources claim to the site. Angelina cooperated fully, though, and we’re sure she’s trying to do her best for the sake of her kids.
