It is no longer news that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are going their separate ways, but what’s news is the investigation being conducted by the LAPD and L.A County Dept. of Children and Family Services for alleged physical and verbal abuse by Brad Pitt of his kids. Must the children be dragged into this messy fight between the parents?
Two days ago, when Brad Pitt released his press statement, he made it clear that the children be given their privacy but his wish is far from being granted with this latest development.
According to reports from TMZ, Brad, Angelina and their kids were on a flight last Wednesday when he allegedly got wasted on the private jet. He allegedly went wild, screaming and getting physical with the kids.
We’re told the plane landed at an airport around 8 PM, and witnesses say Pitt continued his rant on the tarmac, and even tried leaving in one of the fuel trucks.
Now, the mystery French actress which was speculated to be the reason for the divorce is irrelevant as she has come out on Instagram to say that she is expecting a baby with her partner of eight years and she has no romantic relationship with Brad Pitt.
Reports from TMZ revealed that someone either on the plane or the tarmac anonymously reported the incident to the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services. We’re told Brad and Angelina have already been interviewed and DCFS plans to interview the kids as well. That investigation is ongoing and that is the reason for the divorce as the incident triggered Jolie to separate from Brad the next day and file for divorce.
Brad Pitt on the other hand told TMZ that:
“He takes the matter very seriously and says he did not commit any abuse of his children,” adding, “It’s unfortunate that people involved are continuing to present him in the worst possible light.”
And at this point we say… only time will tell…
