Brad Pitt investigated over child abuse allegations following private plane incident

Brad Pitt investigated over child abuse allegations following private plane incident

While the world is still in shock that Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, little details keep trickling out over what exactly happened between the pair to cause this jaw dropping rift. Sources close to the situation have revealed that Brad allegedly got “verbally abusive” and “physical” with one of his and Angelina’s six children. The incident was said to have happened aboard the high profile couple’s private plane in front of their brood.

Now that the abuse allegations have come to light, the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services has opened an investigation into the matter. People reports that a source anonymously called into DCFS to report the incident last Wednesday while the plane was still on the tarmac.

Reportedly, Brad is accused of being abusive and physical with one of the kids, which is obviously something that Angelina would allow for their children. The details on the incident aren’t crystal clear, but we have learned that Angelina was there along with some of their other children.

The source revealed, “The DCFS investigation is absolutely ongoing. Brad has been interviewed and is cooperating fully. The case remains open.”

According to the complaint, Brad was allegedly drunk during the plane incident. Despite the open investigation by DCFS, the LAPD says that they are not currently investigating the actor following the abuse allegations. A spokeswoman for the department said, “LAPD is not handling any report or allegations into child abuse against Mr. Brad Pitt.”

Other sources have said that following the incident on the plane, Brad did not return to the couple’s Los Angeles home. He was said to have spent the night in a hotel – which was something that became a common occurrence following any arguments or spats with Angelina.

A spy close to the actor said that Brad realizes the severity of the matter. The source said, “He takes the matter very seriously and says he did not commit any abuse of his children. It’s unfortunate that people involved are continuing to present him in the worst possible light.”

In the divorce documents, Angelina cited irreconcilable differences and listed their date of separation as September 15, 2016. Following the news of her divorce filing, Brad released a statement about his unending focus on the well-being of their children. He said in a statement, “I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids. I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time.”

Angelina had previously released her own statement through her lawyer, Laura Wasser. She said, “This decision was made for the health of the family.”

More details have leaked out regarding the incident as we have since learned that Brad allegedly screamed at the pair’s oldest child Maddox during the plane incident. According to Page Six, Brad admitted that he yelled at their son, but denied hitting him.

A source close to the matter said, “Angelina and Brad got into an argument while on the plane, and their son Maddox stepped in and got caught in the middle. Brad may have been drinking, and admits that he yelled at his son, but he insists he did not hit him or attempt to harm him. It was a confrontation that got out of hand.”

Brad’s camp is claiming that Angelina is coming out swinging with the abuse allegations because she wants to win the court of public opinion in order to get custody of their six children. The source said, “Angelina is putting out [the abuse] story to take the kids away from him. Angelina’s team’s campaign to smear him is so aggressive.”

A source on Brad’s side said that Angelina is gunning for a job with the United Nations, but she needs to be able to take the children out of Los Angeles in order to do so. The Brad source added, “He and Angelina fought a lot recently, and she knows how to push his buttons. But he is adamant that he did not hit these kids, like she’s trying to say.”

Brad Pitt will be fighting Angelina Jolie for joint custody of their six kids

Brad Pitt will be fighting Angelina Jolie for joint custody of their six kids

Just yesterday, the world became utterly shocked when it was reported that Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from her husband Brad Pitt. Memes were created and everyone was left in awe over the news of their separation. Angelina came out swinging against Brad, claiming that he had substance abuse issues and didn’t care for the way he parented their six children. Now, he’s hitting back – saying that he won’t stand for having just visitation while she takes physical custody of their brood.

TMZ reports that their Brad sources have claimed that there is no way he would be on board with her getting sole physical custody of the kids. A spy revealed, “There’s no chance that’s going to happen.”

Reportedly, the actor wants joint custody of the couple’s children. Despite that, he has no intentions on interfering with Angelina’s co-parenting ability, but he won’t allow her to keep the kids from him. This is very likely going to blow up into World War 3 as the two fire back and forth at one another during the divorce and custody battle. It already has the potential to be a long battle over their finances because of their property splits and custody issues, but her asking for physical custody of the children is likely to be the first blow in a long series of arguments.

Sources close to Brad say that divorce had become a topic of conversation in recent months, so he isn’t exactly as shocked as the rest of us were when the news broke. Brad and Angelina have not gotten along with one another in months, so they brought up the topic of divorce as a solution to their turmoil.

Another source close to the couple said that the duo seemed happy during their last family outings together, so we’re not sure what to believe.

People reports:

On July 4, they were spotted at a local supermarket shopping for a BBQ grill before their holiday festivities.

“Brad and Angie were great. They seemed very happy and chatty,” an onlooker tells PEOPLE, adding that their children Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne tagged along. “They had a disagreement and Brad lectured them on how to behave in public. Brad often comes in with his kids and seems like a great dad.”

Less than a week later, the duo made a stop inside a Jamba Juice with their daughter Shiloh, where a source tells PEOPLE “they were very cuddly.”

“Brad kept hugging Angie from behind. It was on the earlier side, so it was obvious that they were having a good morning,” adds the source. “They looked very happy. They were both very polite and sweet.”

Did anyone really think that Brad would lay down and let Angelina have her way? Hit the comments below and let us know your thoughts.

Angelina Jolie is divorcing Brad Pitt!

Angelina Jolie is divorcing Brad Pitt!

File this one under “Didn’t see that coming…”

Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt after being married to the actor since 2014. They were together since 2004 when he abruptly left his relationship with then-wife Jennifer Aniston. Now, apparently Angelina has decided that enough is enough when it comes to the parenting techniques used by Brad during their marriage.

On Monday, the actress filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences. In the divorce documents, she is asking for physical custody of their six children together, Maddox, Pax, Shiloh, Zahara, Knox, and Vivienne. According to the documents filed in court, she is seeking to allow Brad to have visitation with the children, but not joint physical custody. It’s interesting because she has not agreed with how he has parented their children together.

TMZ reports that there was no other party involved in the couple’s divorce. Angelina is being represented by Laura Wasser and Brad has yet to retain counsel. She lists their date of separation as September 15, 2016 and she is not seeking spousal support in the divorce.

To say that we are shocked would be an understatement! What say you?

Alicia Vikander Has A Major Girlcrush On Angelina Jolie

"Jason Bourne" Photocall

Lara Croft, meet Lara Croft?

Back in April, Alicia Vikander was cast as the new Lara Croft in a planned reboot of the franchise. In 2001 and 2003, our old pal Angelina Jolie starred as Lara Croft in two films, and then she walked away from the franchise… although there was talk over the years of getting Jolie to do a third film, but no dice. So, Alicia’s in for a new Tomb Raider, one that will be based off of the rebooted video game. The question is, can Vikander carry a big action franchise AND can she meet Angelina?!

In a way, Angelina Jolie paved the way for Alicia Vikander. E! News’ Maria Menounos caught up with the 27-year-old actress Monday at the Las Vegas premiere of her new movie, Jason Bourne, and asked her how it feels to be taking over the role Jolie made famous 15 years ago.

“That is a woman I would love to meet,” Vikander said of Jolie, a fellow Oscar winner who starred in 2001′s Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and its sequel, 2003′s Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life. “She made an icon of that character, of course.” Vikander said she is a longtime fan of Jolie’s work, both in front of and behind the camera. “She’s quite an incredible woman,” she raved of the actress, director and writer. “I would love to meet her.”

However, Vikander won’t be calling Jolie for advice as she prepares to play the video game character.

“What we’re doing is something quite different since they rebooted the game in 2013. It’s a whole new take,” she explained to Menounos. “We’re doing a film of that game.”

(Via E! News)

I think Vikander is being honest about how she would love to meet Angelina, but advice? Come on. Vikander is a great actress in her own right, and probably doesn’t want to sully her own preconception and exploration of the character with Angie interps from the past. Right?
