“LAPD is not handling any report or allegations into child abuse for Mr. Brad Pitt,” the LAPD told Us Weekly in a statement.
Well this just took an ugly turn.
Just a few days after Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, it was revealed that he was being investigated for child abuse.
Multiple reports surfaced accusing the actor of verbal and physical abuse against his six children.
The LA Police Department and the LA County Department of Children and Family Services is leading the investigation following an incident on a private jet.
TMZ reports that the couple was on a flight last Wednesday with the kids when Brad got super drunk and began screaming and getting physical with the children.
When the plane landed, he reportedly continued his rant on the tarmac and even tried hopping on a fuel truck to leave.
Sources say this triggered Jolie’s decision to file from divorce.
Brad’s team says that “he takes the matter very seriously and says he did not commit any abuse of his children,” adding, “It’s unfortunate that people involved are continuing to present him in the worst possible light.”
