And It’s Getting A Lot Messier: Brad Pitt Is Being Investigated For Child Abuse (UPDATE: The FBI Reportedly Has The Case)
Well, now the Brangelina divorce drama has gone from rumors about Brad Pitt being a mean stoner and passing his wandering fondue-covered peen to Marion Cotillard and Russian whores, and has made sharp turn into the muddy, shit-covered roads of Johnny Depp/Amber Heard territory. But instead of Brad being accused of abusing Angelina Jolie, he’s being accused of verbally and physically abusing his children.
TMZ and People both confirm through their sources that the LAPD and L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services are investigating a situation that allegedly went down on the tarmac of an airport
in the Los Angeles area last Wednesday. UsWeekly’s source said a few days ago that an “incident” that “affected the whole family” led St. Angie to dump Brad, file for divorce and ask for sole physical custody of the child army. I thought that, I don’t know, maybe Brad sharted out a stoner fart that was truly unforgivable and lingered with everyone for a long time. But the accusation is ten zillion times more serious than that.
Sources tell TMZ that the entire family were on a private plane last Wednesday and Brad got wasted during the flight. Brad allegedly acted like a fucking lunatic (cut to Chelsea Handler looking around and whistling) and screamed and got physical with the kids. When the plane landed at around 8pm, Brad’s angry drunk daddy antics continued and he reportedly kept screaming and going crazy. His messy ass apparently tried to leave in one of the fuel trucks.
Someone either on the plane or the tarmac anonymously reported the incident to CPS and that started the investigation and opened up a file. The LAPD is involved because it’s routine that they get involved in child abuse cases. (See UPDATE below: The LAPD denies they’re involved right now.) DCFS has reportedly already interviewed Angie and Brad and they plan to interview the kids. Brad hasn’t said anything about this yet, but a “source” gave the same quote about it to TMZ and People:
“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.”
2016 is the year of a lot of things (all shitty) and it looks like it may also be the year when A-list movie star actors from the 90s fucking implode. I may not even blink if I wake up tomorrow to a TMZ story about how Tom Hanks was arrested outside of a crack house after he went crazy and was accused of burning the place down and pulling a gun on everyone. That would explain Chet Haze….
UPDATE: Officer Jenny Houser, who is in the media relations department of the LAPD, tells KTLA that they currently aren’t investigating Brad Pitt.
“The abuse child unit with LAPD has no open investigation on Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie.”
UPDATE II: TMZ says that they were wrong about the LAPD investigating A source tells them that DCFS passed the case to the LAPD, but the LAPD didn’t pick it up, because it’s not their jurisdiction. Brad’s alleged freakout on the kids happened in the air on a flight from France to the U.S., and also on the tarmac at an airport in Minnesota. Since it allegedly happened in the air, the FBI has jurisdiction and the case has been given to them. If the DCFS finds out that abuse may have also gone down in Brangelina’s house in L.A., the LAPD will step in.
