When Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were married, they were regarded as one of Hollywood’s top couples. They even had a fun location for their adult adventures. Unfortunately, the two later got divorced, and their case is currently exceedingly complex.
Recently, a somber-looking Brad Pitt was photographed by Daily Mail in Los Angeles on Tuesday. His public appearance came shortly after his ex-wife Angelina Jolie filed explosive court documents in which she accused him of hitting another child in the face, slamming the actress against a wall while grabbing her hair, and “choking” one of their six children during a heated argument on a private jet.
According to court records, Jolie, 48, claimed that Pitt, 58, physically and emotionally abused her and their children, who were then between the ages of eight and 15, on the flight in September 2016 that led to the breakdown of their marriage. She alleged that Pitt attacked her verbally after accusing her of being ‘too deferential to the children’ and 90 minutes later began yelling at her, pushing her against a bathroom wall and striking the ceiling of the plane.
When one of the children came to Jolie’s defense amid further verbal insults, Pitt allegedly turned on them, injuring Jolie as she tried to intervene. Jolie’s claim suggested that Pitt choked one of the children and hit another. Pitt admitted to yelling at the children in 2016, but denied hitting them. A source close to Pitt meanwhile accused Jolie of manipulating the narrative to ‘get what she wants’ The source shared that ‘her story is constantly evolving’ and that she is ‘adding completely untrue information’.
Jolie’s most recent accusations come as the two parties are still engaged in a legal dispute over the September 2021 sale of her half of the French winery they jointly owned. Pitt claimed she had no right to sell out but Jolie argued that she offered it to him and a $54.5 million deal was reached. However, he pulled out when she mentioned the grim private jet episode during their custody battle. We’ll have to see what they have in store for us next. Stay tuned to Thirsty.
