It is a major story, but I don’t believe it. Do you?
The child abuse allegations against Brad Pitt have been referred over to the FBI … TMZ has learned.
As we reported, the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services received an anonymous call that Brad was wasted on a private jet last week and became physically and verbally abusive to his kids.
Department of Children and Family Services spokesman Armand Montiel told USA TODAY by law the agency cannot confirm or deny investigations.
People.com reports that Pitt is accused of getting verbally abusive with one of couple’s kids, as well as getting physical while the family was on their private plane. People and TMZ both note that Jolie and at least some of the couple’s other children were present at the time. Pitt and Jolie have six children: Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 8.
The Los Angeles Police Department is so far not investigating. “LAPD is not handling any report or allegations into child abuse against Brad Pitt,” spokeswoman Officer Jenny Houser told USA TODAY in a statement on Thursday.
Attempts to reach representatives for Jolie and Pitt were not successful.
According to TMZ, Pitt disputes the accusation.
Recently, we reported that Angelina Jolie had filed for a divorce from Pitt.
Although we are used to Hollywood taking marriage for granted and going through spouses like water…this one still does come as a bit of a shocker. Angelina Jolie who has for many years been involved in politics globally and the reach out to countries less fortunate than us, has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt.
This is why…
TMZ reports that the 41-year-old actress and United Nations special envoy filed court papers Monday citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split.
The outlet further reports that Jolie was unhappy with the way Pitt, 52, was raising their children. The couple — who married in 2014 but have been together since 2004 — are parents to six children: Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivenne, both 8.
A source close to the couple told TMZ that Jolie was “extremely upset” with Pitt’s parenting methods.
An unnamed source also reportedly told the outlet that Jolie was “fed up” with what the source said was his alleged use of marijuana and anger issues. The source added that Jolie felt the children were in danger around Pitt.
Meanwhile, the New York Post‘s Page Six reports that Jolie had hired a private detective to spy on Pitt on the set of his new London-set movie Allied, where she suspected he had been cheating with co-star Marion Cotillard.
The outlet reported that the private eye did catch Pitt cheating with Cotillard.
Angelina is filing for sole custody of all 6 of their children with granted visitation rights to Brad Pitt. This is going to be an absolute terror for this family to deal with. If Brad was taking his family for granted, he will surely regret it now. A family torn apart…is one of the most awful experiences in this world. Sending out prayers for this family.
