It surely seems that the child abuse allegations that have been made against famous actor Brad Pitt are continuing and have become more serious. Actually, according to the latest reports, the FBI has confirmed that it started an investigation against the famous actor.
So, media reported that the FBI is currently getting more evidence and facts on the allegations that Brad Pitt had been verbally and physically abusive towards one of his children. The incident is said to have occurred on a private plane, on an international flight, and this is the reason why it is the FBI which is in charge with this case.
The confirmation that the FBI has started an investigation comes as the Los Angeles Police Department has denied that they were looking into potential child abuse involving the famous actor. The Department of Children and Family Services refused to comment, so it remains unclear if they are also investigating the incident.
The FBI confirmed their investigation in a statement released for the media. “In response to your inquiry regarding allegations within the special aircraft jurisdiction of the United States; specifically, an aircraft carrying Mr. Brad Pitt and his children, the FBI is continuing to gather facts and will evaluate whether an investigation at the federal level will be pursued,” the FBI stated.
The rumors linked to Brad Pitt’s alleged abusive behavior first emerged after his famous wife, actress Angelina Jolie decided to file for divorce. The divorce filing was not expected. Angelina did not reveal her reasons for separating from her husband, citing irreconcilable differences in the divorce papers. She did say that the filing was for “the health of the family” and sought physical custody of the children with Brad only being granted visitation rights.
Immediately after, some rumors said that the star was actually upset with Brad’s parenting methods and his unsuitable behavior around the children, including heavy drinking. Now, it has emerged that Brad had actually become verbally and physically abusive towards at least one of the children during a flight from France to California. Angelina was also on the plane.
