The infamous incident in the 2016 plan that led to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s divorce is dominating the headlines as new details emerge about the spat. Jolie filed for divorce after two years of marriage citing irreconcilable differences and also requested full custody of their six children. Jolie’s attorney, Robert Offer, confirmed the news to USA Today and provided a cryptic explanation for the split. “This decision was made for the health of the family,” Offer said. The filing listed their separation date as September 15, a day after the alleged in-flight debacle.
Not long after the divorce filing, sources confirmed to People that the FBI is investigating Pitt for allegedly hitting one of his children during the flight. The lawsuits were eventually deemed unfounded.
The ordeal appeared to be over until August 15, when Puck published a shocking article identifying Jolie as the “Jane Doe” plaintiff in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the FBI. According to the outlet, Jolie is asking the agency to provide an explanation as to why Pitt was not arrested after the 2016 plane crash. Now, more disturbing details about the alleged altercation are coming to light.
Angelina Jolie claims Brad Pitt attacked her and damaged her jet
Newly released FBI documents have provided additional details about the in-flight fight between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in 2016. The report, obtained by NBC News, includes a series of chilling claims Jolie made about Pitt’s actions during the altercation. Jolie claimed that in an attempt to protect the children from Pitt’s anger, the couple walked to the back of the plane, where the “Bullet Train” actor reportedly “grabbed her by the head, shook her, followed by grabbing her by the shoulders.” and shook her.” The report further alleges that after one of the children asked about her mother’s well-being during the ordeal, Pitt yelled, “She’s ruining this family. She’s crazy.”
Pitt also reportedly caused $25,000 worth of damage to the plane after spilling wine on a seat. He also reportedly poured beer on Jolie and her kids and also yelled, “You’re not going anywhere. You’re not getting off that damn plane,” as they attempted to exit the plane.
After the report was released, sources close to Pitt have suggested that the ‘Eternals’ star is merely trying to tarnish her ex-husband’s reputation. “Both parties have had this information for almost six years,” the insider told the Independent. “So making an anonymous FOIA request for information you already have that has been used in previous legal proceedings serves no purpose other than to inflict pain.”
