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.”

Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt Divorce Details: 'Things Built Over Time'

More details are emerging about Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt‘s divorce.

The 41-year-old actress and 52-year-old actor have reportedly dealt with a lot of tension recently.

“Things built and built over time – it wasn’t any one thing,” a source close to Angie told People. “She’s loved this man for several years, and [divorce] is not something you do impulsively.”

A Brad source told the mag, “There was clearly a breaking point, where she’d just had enough. He may have been broken himself and said he couldn’t go on, and she reacted. This has been difficult for a while.”

There were reportedly differences over their parenting styles. Brad allegedly had a “stricter approach versus Angelina‘s more relaxed attitude.”

“He was appealing to her to do this quietly – not to save the marriage but to consider the well-being of the children – and it was ignored,” the Brad source added.

Chelsea Handler Comments on Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt's Divorce, Calls Her a 'F-cking Lunatic'

Chelsea Handler had some not-so-nice things to say about Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.

The 41-year-old comedian, who is also best friends with Brad‘s ex-wife Jennifer Aniston, addressed the split on her show Chelsea.

Brad and Angelina always said they wouldn’t get married until everyone could get married,” Chelsea said. “And I always said I wouldn’t get married until they got divorced, so I’m officially accepting proposals. I’m ready.”

She continued, “There are rumors that part of the problem was that Brad was allegedly drinking and smoking too much weed. I wonder why he would need to self-medicate, Maybe because he could have been spending the last 12 years at Lake Como hanging out with George Clooney and Matt Damon, instead of being stuck in a house with 85 kids speaking 15 different languages. Oh yeah, because he married a f-cking lunatic, that’s why.”

“But we should all respect their privacy during this very difficult time,” Chelsea added. “So this will be the last time I speak of this on TV. You can follow me on Twitter.”
