First he was blindsided by the divorce. Now this.
The child abuse allegations against Brad Pitt have been referred over to the FBI, according to TMZ.
TMZ says the case was referred over to the FBI on Thursday after the alleged incident happened in the air while the family was on a plane from France last Wednesday.
In divorce documents, Jolie listed the couple’s date of separation as the following day, Sept. 15.
People.com reports that Pitt is accused of getting verbally abusive with one of couple’s kids, as well as getting physical while the family was on their private plane. People and TMZ both note that Jolie and at least some of the couple’s other children were present at the time. Pitt and Jolie have six children: Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 8.
We know … the plane landed a week ago Wednesday just before 8 PM at an airport in Minnesota. That’s when eyewitnesses say Brad was “out of control” on the tarmac and even tried to leave in a fuel truck. Pitt sources say the actor denies committing any sort of abuse.
