Brad Pitt is reportedly under investigation for child abuse.
TMZ reports that Los Angeles Police and the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services are investigating an incident that took place last Wednesday on a private jet in which Pitt allegedly "got wasted and went wild", screaming and getting physical with the kids. Witnesses say he continued his rants on the tarmac, and tried leaving in one of the fuel trucks.
The incident is what reportedly was the final straw for Jolie to file for the divorce.
The incident happened Sept. 14, according to TMZ. The next day, Jolie reportedly separated from Pitt before filing for divorce a few days later.
After the plane landed, someone who witnessed the situation anonymously reported the incident to the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, which opened an investigation.
“He takes the matter very seriously and says he did not commit any abuse of his children,” a source close to Pitt told TMZ. “It’s unfortunate that people involved are continuing to present him in the worst possible light.”
When asked about the incident, Pitt's representative refered back to the statement he gave when the divorce proceedings were announced.
"I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well being of our kids," Pitt said.
Jolie is now seeking full custody of their children with visitation for Pitt.
