Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s alleged altercation on a private plane was caught on camera, sources tell Us Weekly.
According to insiders, Pitt can be seen on video “looking drunk” and “yelling.” The footage is reportedly from Wednesday, September 14, after the Jolie-Pitt family’s jet stopped for fuel at Minnesota’s International Falls Airport.
“Brad is seen yelling a lot during it, but nothing physical,” one source tells Us of the footage.
Another source tells Us that Jolie and Pitt allegedly got into a heated exchange while aboard their private plane. “He got drunk and was fighting with Angie,” the source says. “Maddox stepped in to defend Angie and got in Brad's face.” A source close to Pitt notes that “teenagers have fights with their parents, especially when you have teens who are strong-willed and confident. You’re going to have back and forth." The insider also adds that “the abuse suggestions are inaccurate.”
As previously reported, according to TMZ, the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services was investigating the Ocean's Eleven actor after the alleged incident was reported to them. (DCFS Public Information Officer Neil Zanville, however, told Us that they’re unable to comment on whether or not the department is investigating the situation. The FBI also released a statement to Us on Thursday regarding the child abuse investigation, noting the agency is gathering facts and will evaluate whether there will be a probe at the federal level.)
TMZ had first reported that sources claimed that a drunk Pitt allegedly made a scene on the tarmac after the family's plane touched down.
Earlier this week, a source told Us that "an incident took place and prompted [Angelina] to act and file." The source didn't provide details but claimed that the situation "affected the entire family."
Jolie’s rep noted in her statement to Us Weekly on Monday, September 19, regarding the actress’ decision to file that it "was made for the health of the family.”
Us exclusively revealed that although the couple of more than a decade had been fighting, Pitt learned his estranged wife was filing for divorce just one day before she did it.
"Brad only found out about the divorce decision [the day before]," an insider said. "[Jolie] did try to make it work, but her kids come first, and she couldn't let them see Mommy and Daddy like this. The fighting got worse, and they disagreed a lot about parenting and a lot of things."
