Angelina Jolie Is Divorcing Brad Pitt Over Child Abuse?Brad Pitt is under investigation by the LAPD and L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services for allegedly getting verbally abusive and physical with his children, and that's what triggered the divorce ...
TMZ reports that sources familiar with the situation say, Brad, Angelina and their kids were on a flight last Wednesday when he allegedly got wasted on the private jet. He allegedly went wild, screaming and getting physical with the kids. TMZ reports that the plane landed at an airport around 8 PM, and witnesses say Pitt continued his rant on the tarmac, and even tried leaving in one of the fuel trucks.
TMZ also claims that the sources say someone either on the plane or the tarmac anonymously reported the incident to the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services.
Brad and Angelina have already been reportedly interviewed and DCFS plans to interview the kids as well. That investigation is ongoing. Reports also have it that the LAPD has the case ... which is routine when anyone reports child abuse.
Although TMZ claims not to know the specifics of the alleged abuse ... just that it was supposedly both verbal and physical and their sources say this incident triggered Jolie to separate from Brad the next day and file for divorce just days later.
A source close to Brad is also quoted as saying, "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."
