The plot thickens in the divorce drama between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. A day after it was revealed that Pitt reportedly fought with Jolie and his oldest son, Maddox, on a flight from France to the U.S., video of the altercation is being shared, Us Weekly wrote in an exclusive report Friday.
“He got drunk and was fighting with Angie,” an insider told the publication Friday. “Maddox stepped in to defend Angie and got in Brad’s face.”
An insider who is close to Pit added: “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 video reportedly shows Pitt, 52, “yelling” and “looking drunk.” The whereabouts of the footage are unknown.
After the fight, Pitt was accused of child abuse, which is something the actor reportedly refutes. He has not issued a statement about the accusations, though an anonymous source said “the abuse suggestions are inaccurate.”
The FBI is investigating the child abuse claims since the incident occurred midflight and the Los Angeles Police Department doesn’t have jurisdiction in the air, TMZ wrote Thursday.
Jolie, 41, filed for divorce Monday after two years of marriage. The couple had been together for more than a decade. She didn’t mention any claims of child abuse and filed “irreconcilable differences.” She requested Pitt get visitation rights of their six children: Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8. Jolie is not seeking spousal support.
In Pitt’s statement about his divorce, he said he was “saddened.” He reportedly wants joint custody.
“I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids,” he told People Magazine Tuesday. “I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time.”
Jolie released a statement about the split through her attorney. “This decision was made for the health of the family,” the lawyer said. “She will not be commenting at this time, and asks that the family be given their privacy during this difficult time.”
