Brad Pitt's Family Airplane Incident is Being Evaluated by the FBI

Brad Pitt's Family Airplane Incident is Being Evaluated by the FBI

The FBI has responded to inquiries about reports of an investigation into an incident that allegedly happened between Brad Pitt and his family on a recent flight.

The 52-year-old actor is allegedly being investigated for child abuse after an incident on an airplane last week. Because the incident happened in the air, the FBI has jurisdiction and not the LAPD.

“In response to your inquiry regarding allegations within the special aircraft jurisdiction of the United States; specifically, an aircraft carrying Mr. Brad Pitt and his children, the FBI is continuing to gather facts and will evaluate whether an investigation at the federal level will be pursued,” the FBI said in a statement to Variety.

Brad‘s wife Angelina Jolie filed for divorce on Monday and says they separated the day after the flight. Her team says the divorce is for the “health of her family.”

    I find it extremely difficult to see Pitt physically harming his children. Its going to backfire on Jolie, that child is now going to feel responsible for their divorce. The fact is you don’t go from a loving happy couple to getting divorced over one heated argument. Its obvious Jolie is using this one incident to try and gain physical custody of all the children which is not in the children’s best interest. Kids need a mother and a father to be well balanced. I have no idea what happened in this relationship but I pray for the children because they are the most helpless in a situation that affects them more deeply than it does the adults

    Angelina is going all out to make Brad look bad! Brad you made a bad choice with her. It’s good you got out!

  • Tamsin

    My source is telling me that Insanegelina wanted to start Shiloh/John on hormones and Pothead is AGAINST it…as any SANE parent would be! She wants to turn Shiloh into a boy as a source of publicity for herself and Pitty is saying no. That’s one of many reasons why she accused him of abuse.

    That will go to the family court in the next year or 2 as a separate hearing.

  • yolly

    Those are the media saying things that happened, they don’t know nothing , I hope, media leave them alone and let them settle their family problem privately. I am still hoping everything will be resolved and the family will be together again. God bless them.

  • Tamsin

    GOD DOESN’T BLESS ADULTERERS, YOLLY. After all that’s happened, don’t you know that by now?? LOL

  • mija288

    My goodness. Because “you” find it hard it’s Angelina’s fault? Have you read one thing that says “she said” he abused their child? No, you haven’t. Have you not read that actual witnesses on the plane and off reported what transpired such as Brad tossing a tantrum on the tarmac and trying to leave in an oil truck? I love the guy and I’m sad as hell about it all but that doesn’t mean I’m going to toss the truth as reported by viable sources just because of some personal bias. Of course this isn’t the lone incident that broke the camels back. Of course this isn’t some in the moment decision. Shit has compiled I’m sure from both he and she because there’s ALWAYS two sides to a tale and the the truth lays somewhere in between but, this bs about anything backfiring on Angelina is a response one gives when it’s really about not much more than being a fan of one and not the other.

  • mija288

    Does any of this even matter to you? You don’t give a pile about their kids or them at all. You have no problem with any of it as long as a shot at Angelina can be had.

  • reallife🦄

    This sorry sack of shit has yet to apologize to Maddox andthe rest of his children but he wants us to believe he wants to help raise them? Fuck him

  • reallife🦄

    Yeah because you know the pos personally even if you did

    You don’t know how he is when he’s black out drunk

  • America’s Sweetheart

    Heroina is getting crucified on the web!!! I’m lovin it.. This is all going to backfire on her nasty ass…Brad has been”12 Years a Slave” but not anymore…He is gonna mop the floor with her nasty ass…😅

  • America’s Sweetheart

    Wow Tam, good to see you old friend.. Does BlogBrat ring a bell? We are finally getting to see Karma bite Heroina in the ass..Glad your visible again.. I knew you were around, because the “twat squad” have accused me of being you numerous times… This is gonna be loads of fun..😎

  • toastie postie

    Hi, Yolly. We are at the old refugee thread. But we may move soon.

  • America’s Sweetheart

    He didn’t harm his kid, Jolie wants to move to London, & she can’t do it if Brad has any sort of custody..This is just another one of her many many lies she has told over the years…It will no doubt backfire on her..

  • America’s Sweetheart

    Still hiding huh??? Roflmao!!!!😅😅😅😅😅

  • America’s Sweetheart

    Whamo is around somewhere…

  • toastie postie

    You have no idea what they have been going through. It’s always her fault. Give it a rest. Women are their own worse enemies. No wonder men are in power.

  • America’s Sweetheart

    Maybe over a twit like you…Go away before someone drops a house on you too…

  • Khazija

    There is video footage that exonerates Brad. Brad did not physically harm the children. Sources have seen the video. I hope this matter can be cleared up before it escalates or before certain people can manipulate the situation further.

    It is terrible how Brad and anybody who defends him with the truth is being attacked and certain sites are not letting people post commentary on his behalf. He is not a child abuser nor a philanderer, enough with the lies.

  • Michelle Eve

    She needs help. And she needs to eat!

  • Khazija

    There have been viable sources defending Brad from the abuse claims as well. I know more people who have been defending him. He did not physically harm any of the children and this one incident is being spun around terribly by leaks to TMZ in the divorce proceedings. There is a big difference between ‘throwing a tantrum’ versus actually abusing your children. Then this is all being used to make it appear like Brad is a horrible person and abusive parent. People that have had ties to this family for a long time validated that Brad never hit his children but people aren’t going to accept that.

    The children were put front and center during this media circus and Brad was painted in the worst possible light. A dispute that should have been resolved appropriately is being exacerbated in the most horrific way in the public eye where Brad is being hammered with a number of terrible accusations. People think he is a cheater, alcoholic, abuser, and people are escalating their attacks to even grosser territory. Brad is not a violent person an an awful argument shouldn’t be misperceived or exaggerated like this.

    Nobody wanted it to go down like this. This isn’t about being a fan over the other. People are acting like women must automatically believe Angelina due to her gender. They keep acting like Brad has never suffered any backlash or isn’t worthy of defense. People need to operate on the truth regardless.

  • America’s Sweetheart

    This all Jolie’s lies so she can move to London…

  • Khazija

    Brad wasn’t black out drunk. There are people who know him personally and can vouch for his habits. People yet again are throwing out any understanding or rational observations about Brad out the window to fall for a well-calculated smear campaign.

  • Khazija

    Brad didn’t cross the line. He did apologize to Angelina and the children after the drama. If he were to apologize in public, people would misconstrue that as guilt. He didn’t hit his children. Brad has been a devoted father throughout the past 12 years. He had a bond with Maddox also and one heated argument doesn’t mean he can’t be a father to him anymore because Angelina wants custody.

  • toastie postie

    Sadly it’s on the tarmac, not in the airplane. I don’t think he abused the child physically…

  • Do Tell

    I just hope and pray that this doesn’t become too ugly. It’s just sad.

  • Khazija

    It is already ugly. There is no coming back from this for either of them. Their family image has been tainted and Brad has been thrown under the bus. Yet again, I am seeing people being quick to vilify him and think of the worst while ignoring the history of the other person involved.

  • Cheyenne

    There have probably been a whole lot of prior incidents, but this one was evidently the straw that broke the camel’s back.

  • Cheyenne

    You’re assuming this was an isolated incident. I’m betting it wasn’t. I think the problems had been building up for months, if not years.

  • Cheyenne

  • Khazija

    I am not assuming. I know what I have been informed of and will maintain what I know with privacy. I have also made my own observations for a long time, again that will be maintained with privacy.

    They had problems and it is not just Brad that is to be blamed for it. However, Brad is NOT an abusive dad and this whole situation is being blown out of proportion as well as misportrayed. This has gone into a sinister direction when it should not have.

  • reallife🦄

    Nah the Fbi is going all out to make Brad look like a shit dad because he is

  • reallife🦄

    Brad needs rehab

  • reallife🦄

    Brad needs rehab

  • Khazija

    Again, it is her fans projecting this assumption based on a misportrayal of an incident that is being fed to the press strategically during divorce proceedings. Now people are taking it further to paint Brad as a serial abuser when there has been no indication of that. People are doing a 180 in their attitude towards Brad based mostly on this.

    Not everybody is going to forget that Angelina praised Brad’s parenting constantly. Not everybody is going to forget the years of observations of Brad being a devoted father with his kids clearly adoring him. Not everybody is going to forget Brad’s history of being family-oriented prior to being with Jolie. Not everybody is going to throw their understanding of Brad out of the window.

  • reallife🦄

    He crossed the line of no return and never apologized because she refuses to have any contact with the freak. Don’t be stupid. Angelina wants no child support, physical custody with visitations to the drunk. He’s lucky he has that after what he did

  • Khazija

    No, he isn’t. There have been ZERO signs of Brad being a toxic parent prior to this. Demonizing Brad based on this spin is rather unfounded.

  • reallife🦄

    Yeah and I know what I know and Brad is a return offender

  • Khazija

    You are making snap judgments because you are being mislead by certain people spreading spin. This whole thing is being exaggerated and distorted so she can get custody.

    He didn’t beat his son. You are claiming he didn’t apol

  • reallife🦄

    That was in the Tarmac not in the plane. Nice try tho.

    Brad has been an absent father for years -paparazzi photos- can confirm it and the reason he’s trying so hard now is because it’s his image and $ at stake. He cares nothing about his family. I think the last time he traveled with his kids was when ange was in Australia

    The only one that deserves love is her child who stood up to the drunk fool

  • Khazija

    He is not a repeat offender and there is nothing to indicate that. It is sad that you are buying into such smearing against a good person.

  • reallife🦄

    Maddox deserves so much respect right now. Poor kid.

    Fuck Brad for putting them through this

  • Khazija

    You have not seen all of the footage, I know people who have. Again, you are wrongly classifying Brad as a drunk. Brad is not the one with an extensive history of instability, BPD, or alcohol/drug abuse. He is not the one who embarrassed the family by appearing drunk at dinner. He did drink prior to this drama but labeling him an alcoholic based on that is inaccurate.

    The actual footage from over the years contradicts that bs. Their fans from the past 12 years would know that even if they don’t want to admit now. Brad was very involved in his children’s lives. Calling him an absentee father is ridiculous. He has consistently displayed devotion to his family. He always had a rep for being family oriented even prior to being with Angelina.

    You are spreading an entire vicious misportrayal against Brad based on the spin from this incident which is precisely what Laura Wasser wanted.

  • reallife🦄

    Yes he is. Paparazzi photos prove that he is rarely around and when he is around he’s drunk. I think his kids on the stand is the only proof that will get it into your head tho

  • reallife🦄

    No, brad threw his children under the bus. He is sick. He needs to stop acting like the victim. He is the one who victimized his kids and family

  • Khazija

    All you are doing now is LYING to rationalize your attacks. There have been plenty of photos to show that Brad was around his children this year. Also, pap pics don’t show the whole story.

    One lie after another. You are acting like there are tons of pics of him being drunk around the kids when that is not true at all.

    I know his kids will be played against their dad and that horrifies me

  • Khazija

    No, putting them through a media circus and smearing Brad with lies is what is wrong. I do feel sorry for all of the children but demonizing Brad over this spin is rather ignorant.

  • reallife🦄

    Khazija, if you’re really working for Brad Pr team you need to tell them to stop acting like a victim, he victimized his family by being drunk. None of this would be happening if it wasn’t for his drunkness. Take responsibility and grow uo brad.

    A 15 year old no way measures up to a 52 year old man

  • Khazija

    No, Brad did not. Brad has the right to defend himself from a smear campaign.

    Brad is not sick. Again, you are projecting the worst because of how is being painted by the press right now. It is sad that people are so poisoned against Brad but this is what they wanted.

  • reallife🦄

    People have more respect when these celebs take responsibility for their actions . Say sorry. Get help. Work to fix you relationship with your kids. Don’t act like a victim because Brad is the victimizer. The victims are his children… NOT BRAD
