Brad Pitt is being investigated for child abuse allegations. Recently, Los Angeles authorities had spoken to Pitt about an incident involving one of his children. The said incident is said to have happened on September 14, while aboard the couple?s private plane. The family is en route to Los Angeles from their chateau in France.
It has been reported by People that FBI claimed jurisdiction over the case since the incident occurred in the air. Pitt is being accused of getting ?verbally abusive? and ?physical? with one of his children with Angelina Jolie.
According to a source with knowledge of the situation, the investigation is ongoing and the case remains open. Also, Brad is cooperating fully with the authorities.
Jolie filed for divorce and listed September 15 as the date of separation, immediately the next day after the alleged airplane incident. She cited irreconcilable differences and is seeking physical custody of their 6 children. She asked the judge to grant visitation rights to Pitt but no physical custody. Jolie?also isn?t asking for spousal support.
A representative from Pitt?s camp released his statement when news about the divorce was made public. ?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,? Pitt said.
While there are no specific details as to what happened during the alleged incident in the plane, a source tells E! that what transpired was a typical argument between parents and kids. Although things got heated, they were never in physical danger.
Furthermore, the source said that the couple loves their kids more than anything else in the world. While sometimes there might be screaming and yelling, Brad?s relationship with his older boys is great. From time to time they would have their differences, but it?is only normal for fathers with teenage boys.
