It looks like bad news has been following Brad Pitt for a while now as he has come under investigation for child abuse allegations. Pitt has been accused of verbally and physically abusing one of his children following an incident that took place in their private jet. There are allegations that the whole family was on a flight when the actor became too drunk and therefore started screaming and got physical with the kids.
This incident took place last Wednesday. The family landed at around 8pm, and witnesses say the actor continued ranting on the tarmac and tried to leave in one of the fuel trucks. This was then reported and both Brad and Angelina have been questioned regarding this issue as part of an ongoing routine investigation.
According to US website TMZ, the Allied star is facing an investigation by the LA County Department of Children and Family Services over accusations that he might have been physically and verbally abusive to his children.
A source close to Pitt said, “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.”
These allegations have also been denied by LAPD officer Luis Garcia. While talking to media he said, “We have absolutely not initiated anything on Brad Pitt. We don’t know where this has come from – maybe hearsay or something – but certainly no complaint has been made to us.
Our phones started ringing off the hook this morning, and so we checked with our detectives and they confirmed that they are not investigating him either. There is no child abuse investigation into Brad Pitt.”
A second LAPD officer, Jenny Houser has also denied these speculations saying,”LAPD is not handling any report or investigation of child abuse against Mr. Brad Pitt.”
The Salt star filed for divorce on 20th September but legal papers suggest they separated on 15th September. Jolie has filed for full physical custody of their six children and has asked for Pitt to be allowed visitations only.
Earlier, French actress Marion Cotillard was accused of being the scarlet woman between the couple but she has denied these allegations and announced she’s pregnant with boyfriend Guillaume Canet. This is their second child together.
She addressed the rumors on her Instagram.
“Many years ago, I met the man of my life. He is my love, my best friend, the only one that I need” She said.
“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.”

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
