The Brangelina breakup has taken an unusual turn.
After Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt earlier this week, details of the couple’s split have emerged and most of it is jaw-dropping. According to reports, Brad is under investigation by the LAPD and L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services for allegedly getting verbally abusive and physical with his children.
Sources say that the famous couple and their kids were on a flight last Wednesday when he allegedly got drunk on the private jet and went wild, screaming and getting physical with the children. Someone from the flight or the tarmac anonymously reported the incident to the police and the couple were interviewed by DCFS, who plan to interview the kids as well.
The LAPD now has the case, which is routine when anyone reports child abuse. A source also revealed that this incident is the one that caused Jolie to separate from Brad the next day and file for divorce just days later, adding, “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.”
When news of the split broke earlier this week, rumors surfaced that it was due to Pitt’s affair with co-star Marion Cotilliard. But the actress vehemently denied the accusations in an Instagram post, revealing that she’s in love, expecting a baby, and not cheating with Brad.

This is going to be my first and only reaction to the whirlwind news that broke 24 hours ago and that I was swept up into. I am not used to commenting on things like this nor taking them seriously but as this situation is spiraling and affecting people I love, I have to speak up. Firstly, many years ago, I met the man of my life, father of our son and of the baby we are expecting. He is my love, my best friend, the only one that I need. Secondly to those who have indicated that I am devastated, I am very well thank you. This crafted conversation isn't distressing. And to all the media and the haters who are quick to pass judgment, I sincerely wish you a swift recovery. Finally, I do very much wish that Angelina and Brad, both whom I deeply respect, will find peace in this very tumultuous moment. With all my love Marion Ceci sera la première et seule réaction que j'aurai concernant la déferlante inouïe qui à commencé il y a de ça 24 heures et à laquelle je suis mêlée malgré moi. Je n'ai pas pour habitude de commenter ni de prendre au sérieux le tas d'absurdités déversées à mon sujet mais la situation prenant une telle tournure et affectant des gens que j'aime, je me dois de m'exprimer. Pour commencer, j'ai rencontré il y a quelques années l'homme de ma vie , le père de notre fils et du bébé que nous attendons aujourd'hui. Il est mon amour, mon meilleur ami et le seul homme dont j'ai besoin. Ensuite, à ceux qui me prétendent dévastée, je vais très bien merci. Ce genre d'inventions aberrantes ne m'affecte en aucun cas. Et pour finir, à la "presse", à tous les haters, trolls et consorts qui ont le jugement si rapide je vous souhaite sincèrement… un prompt rétablissement. Ceci dit et un peu plus sérieusement, je souhaite à Angelina et Brad, deux personnes pour qui j'ai un profond respect, de trouver la paix dans ce moment tumultueux. Avec tout mon amour. Marion
