Child abuse allegation against Brad Pitt exaggerated – Source

An argument between Hollywood star, Brad Pitt and his son, Maddox, last week on the family’s flight home from France led to Angelina Jolie’s decision to file for divorce, a source close to the family has revealed.

The actor and his 15-year-old son were at odds for unknown reasons, but Pitt did not touch the teenager at any time claims the source.

The source went on to say that allegations of abuse against the actor, both verbal and physical, have been “exaggerated or fabricated”.

Pitt is now being investigated by the FBI and social services in Los Angeles.

A statement from the FBI said: “In response to your inquiry regarding allegations within the special aircraft jurisdiction of the United States; specifically, an aircraft carrying Mr. Brad Pitt and his children, the FBI is continuing to gather facts and will evaluate whether an investigation at the federal level will be pursued.”

On Thursday morning, a police car was seen arriving at the Jolie-Pitt compound in the Hollywood Hills, where Pitt is believed to be staying while Jolie and the children are at a Malibu rental home.

The family is said to have been on a flight home from France when he allegedly became “wasted” and started “screaming” before continuing the “rant” on the tarmac when the plane landed, trying to leave the scene in a fuel truck.

TMZ was the first to report that this alleged episode prompted Jolie to split from the 52-year-old the next day and then file for divorce.

Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt on Monday for “the health of her family”, two years after they wed at their French estate Chateau Morava.

The actress filed papers citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split and asked for physical custody of the couple’s three biological children as well as their three adopted children – Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, and Zahara, 11.
