The fall-out to Brangelina‘s ongoing divorce continues. According to multiple reports which surfaced on Thursday morning, Brad Pitt is now under investigation for verbally and physically abusing his children on a private jet.
Allegedly, Los Angelos Police Department (L.A.P.D) and The L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services (D.F.C.S) are conducting the investigation.
I reached out to the L.A.P.D‘s media relations personnel to confirm the allegations.
According to Officer Jenny Houser, “LAPD is not handling any reports or allegations into child abuse against Mr. Brad Pitt.”
As for D.F.C.S’s involvement in the matter, a spokesperson said: “We have strict confidentiality laws that don’t allow us to confirm or deny the subjects of investigations.”
The child abuse accusation surfaced after Angelina Jolie, Pitt‘s wife, filed for divorce on Monday, after two years of marriage to the Allied actor. The Kung Fu Panda 3 actress called it quits after Pitt allegedly cheated on her with his Allied co-star Marion Cotillard. Cotillard dispelled rumors of the affair on Wednesday, on her Instagram account. Jolie also cited Pitt‘s issues with anger and substance abuse as other reasons for the split.
