Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie spoke with the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services immediately following a talked-about incident aboard their private jet last week, a source tells Us Weekly.
TMZ reported on Thursday, September 22, that Pitt, 52, was “verbally abusive and physical” with his and Angelina Jolie’s children on their private jet — traveling from France to Burbank, California — last week.
The insider tells Us that someone anonymously called DCFS during the flight, and representatives arrived at the airport tarmac to take the complaint as soon as the famous family landed. After interviewing Jolie, 41, and Pitt, DCFS decided to let them go, the source says.
However, the source adds, “The investigation is still ongoing and [Brad] knows he is being investigated… He does not believe he committed abuse.”
DCFS Public Information Officer Neil Zanville previously released a statement to Us about the matter. “We’re prohibited by law from disclosing case-specific information or even identifying any involvement with any client,” he said.
Pitt, however, has not been investigated by the LAPD. “LAPD is not handling any report or allegations into child abuse for Mr. Brad Pitt,” the LAPD told Us in a statement on Thursday.
The latest news comes two days after Jolie filed for divorce from the Allied star after two years of marriage. The couple tied the knot in August 2014 and are parents of six children — Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8. The Maleficent actress is asking for sole physical custody and doesn’t want spousal support.
As Us previously reported, “an incident took place and prompted [Angelina] to act and file.” No other information was provided, but the situation “affected the entire family.”
Pitt, meanwhile, was completely blindsided by the divorce filing. Jolie listed the separation date as September 15.
