The L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services was mainly looking at Brad Pitt’s alleged drunken meltdown on a plane and his side tried to convince everyone that it was a one-time thing, but after talking to the kids and Angelina Jolie, DCFS has reportedly opened up their investigation and are now passing their magnifying glasses over other incidents that may have gone down. Yup, this mess got messier…
Sources close to St. Angie (my guess is either real-life Olivia Pope or GOD) tell TMZ that DCFS’ eyebrows rose over shit that may have gone down between Angie and Brad in front of at least one of their six children. The sources went on to say that some of the children have been “fearful” around Brad and that 15-year-old Maddox Jolie-Pitt has had issues with his dad. Maddox and Brad met up last week for the first time since Angie filed for divorce, but Maddox pressed the stop button on their meeting early, because he didn’t want to be around his dad. Now a 15-year-old not wanting to be around their parent is the story of every parent of a 15-year-old’s life, but a source tells InTouch Weekly that Maddox may be done with his dad right now because he’s sick of getting yelled at and verbally abused. Their source says that DCFS has heard that Brad was “verbally abusive” to his kids and so they want to talk to nannies, housekeepers, etc… I can see the child army’s uncle manny James Haven trying to keep his bulging eyeballs from shooting out of their sockets and hitting the lightbulb after DCFS puts him under the interrogation lamp.
“The investigation was not closed on schedule for a reason. The DCFS investigation is now going to continue for at least several more weeks. Now DCFS is interviewing many people to determine if they are witnesses to any improper behavior by Brad as well as searching for others who have knowledge of his actions. That includes nannies, household staff members and more. The fact that the investigation was extended is an indication of how serious this is.”
Yet another source tells People that it’s not-at-all weird for DCFS to expand their investigation and look at “pattern of behavior.”
Brangelina had a temporary custody agreement in place and it expired on October 20th, but it’s been extended indefinitely. The children will stay living with their mom full-time and their dad gets to visit them every now and again.
Last week, I posted about how FBI agents interviewed Angie at her house in Malibu. The FBI has the case because the plane fight happened in the air, so it’s their jurisdiction. There’s been reports that the FBI probably won’t pursue the case, but UsWeekly says they’re still looking into claims that Brad went crazy on Maddox. UsWeekly added that the FBI talked to Angie for FOUR HOURS. They wanted to know everything that happened on that plane from take-off to landing. Remind me to never get into a fight on a plane, because I do not want to spend FOUR HOURS telling the FBI everything I did on a flight. “Well, after sucking down my fourth bottle of red wine, I decided to start watching Nine Lives…” The FBI would immediately arrest me for terrorizing my seatmates with torturous images.
