According to TMZ, Brad Pitt would have been investigated for child abuse following an unpleasant incident with his children
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, end of a love story
There is no peace for Brad Pitt who, after the announcement of the divorce from Angelina Jolie, would be accused of child abuse. Reporting the news is the TMZ gossip site, according to which Brad Pitt would have been questioned by the Los Angeles police about alleged physical and verbal abuse of his children some time ago. La police and the Department of Children and Family Services would open an investigation following an alert. The fact referred to would have happened last Wednesday on the private jet of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and it would have been so serious as to push the actress to immediately request a divorce and close with her husband.
A witness told the TMZ website that Brad Pitt would lose his head during a flight with the whole family on his private jet. The actor would have screamed at his children and would even have gotten to the hands (although it is not clear how). Pitt's outburst would have continued even after landing, around 8:00 pm and would have happened on the airport runway in front of several witnesses. "The Los Angeles police have been informed as they are routinely, receiving a report of child abuse," the TMZ website explained. The issue would have mourned Brad Pitt who, already tried by the divorce with Jolie, would be determined to defend himself: "He took the issue very seriously and said he had never committed any abuse against his children" said a neighboring source the actor.
Just yesterday, Brad Pitt had released an official statement asking the press to preserve the serenity of his children in the face of their parents' divorce. "I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our children," said Pitt. "I kindly ask the press to leave them the space they need at this difficult time."
