The Brangelina breakup has taken an unusual turn.
After Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt earlier this week, details of the couple’s split have emerged and most of it is jaw-dropping. According to reports, Brad 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.
Sources say that the famous couple and their kids were on a flight last Wednesday when he allegedly got drunk on the private jet and went wild, screaming and getting physical with the children. Someone from the flight or the tarmac anonymously reported the incident to the police and the couple were interviewed by DCFS, who plan to interview the kids as well.
The LAPD now has the case, which is routine when anyone reports child abuse. A source also revealed that this incident is the one that caused Jolie to separate from Brad the next day and file for divorce just days later, adding, “He takes the matter very seriously and says he did not commit any abuse of his children. It’s unfortunate that people involved are continuing to present him in the worst possible light.”
When news of the split broke earlier this week, rumors surfaced that it was due to Pitt’s affair with co-star Marion Cotilliard. But the actress vehemently denied the accusations in an Instagram post, revealing that she’s in love, expecting a baby, and not cheating with Brad.
