Scary new details of Brad Pitt’s alleged child abuse are slowly being revealed. The the latest report claims that an alleged confrontation with his and Angelina Jolie’s eldest son, Maddox, 15, is what finally triggered Angie to file papers, and we have the details here.
Brad Pitt, 52, allegedly got drunk and verbally/physically abusive with his kids on a plane from France to the U.S. last week, but it was actually an argument with Angelina Jolie, 41, that started it all, according to TMZ.
The site reports that Brad and Angie got into a heated argument, when Maddox Jolie-Pitt, 15, jumped in to defend his mother verbally. That’s when the actor allegedly lunged for Maddox, connecting with him “in some fashion,” as Angelina jumped between them, TMZ claims.
Still, it’s made clear that there are still some hazy details about what actually happened. For instance, TMZ’s sources cannot confirm if the alleged abuse happened because of Brad/Angie’s fight…or because Maddox was “acting up,” and it’s not known whether Brad’s alleged “contact” with Maddox was intentional. However, the story does match with People’s previous report that one of the couple’s older children “got caught in the middle” of a fight the stars were having on the plane. Regardless of what exactly happened, though, we do know that Angie filed for divorce one day later on Sept. 15.
Brad’s camp continues to insist he is innocent, and he has hired a high-profile lawyer, Lance Spiegel, to fight his case. Angelina has asked for sole physical custody of the pair’s six children, and the 52-year-old is reportedly planning to fight hard not to lose his time with them. Neither actor has publicly spoken out about the abuse claims, although they’ve both made it clear that they want what is best for the “well-being” and “health” of their children at this time.
