Brad Pitt is disputing Angelina Jolie’s allegations that he physically beat her and their children during a bumpy private jet flight in 2016.
Jolie, 47, claimed in court documents previously obtained by Page Six that Pitt, 58, “choked one of the children and punched another in the face” during a fight that took place as the family was travelling from France to California.
The “Maleficent” actress further stated in the lawsuit that her ex-husband “grabbed” her “by the head and shook her.”
The FBI investigated Brad Pitt’s alleged involvement in child abuse in 2016.
Jolie gave the federal authorities pictures of the bruises she claimed to have sustained as a result of the alleged attack by the “Fury” actor.
Images appeared to show injuries to the actor from “Salt’s” hand, back, and elbow.
Court records that CSN was able to obtain show that officials decided there were “a number of issues” that made charging Pitt unnecessary.
According to Jolie, the FBI agent who investigated the claims had “probable cause to prosecute Pitt for a federal crime for his conduct that day.”
Pitt, on the other hand, tried to transform his life in 2019 by abstaining from alcohol.
Jolie’s “rehashed” accusations, according to sources close to the “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” actress, are an attempt to sever her relationship with the father of her six children.
Formerly wed in August 2014, the couple has five kids: Maddox is 21 years old, Pax is 18 years old, Zahara is 17 years old, Shiloh is 16 years old, Vivienne is 14, and Knox is 14.
Additionally, the insiders informed the publication that despite having “zero” bearing on the lawsuit, Jolie described the abuse claims in “great detail” in her countersuit.
In response to a different lawsuit Pitt had filed against Jolie regarding the sale of her share of their French château months earlier, the application was made.
In the documents, the “Tomb Raider” actress claimed that Pitt tried to get her to agree to a non-disclosure agreement as a requirement of their agreement regarding the sale of Château Miraval and its lucrative vineyard in order to keep her quiet about the alleged “physical and emotional abuse of her and their children,” but she refused.
It is believed that Jolie “poisoned” their children against their father, leaving him with little to no contact with them, according to individuals who spoke to CSN.
