Hollywood’s famous and most loved Actress Angelina Jolie might try to sue the FBI over the investigation into son Maddox’s 2016 fight with his dad Brad Pitt on a private jet in a 2016 child abuse case. That year, Pitt reportedly got into a brawl with the eldest son Maddox on a private jet from France to the USA. The star had also slapped his son, it was reported at the time. The War has continued between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt as the actress considers taking legal action against the FBI over handling her son’s altercation with his father. The Incident took place on the former couple’s private jet, where Brad got into a fight with Angelina, thereby prompting their son Maddox to intervene. After Jolie filed for divorce, it was revealed that Pitt was being investigated by the FBI and Los Angeles social services for ‘physically abusive behavior towards their children. Pitt was later cleared of the accusations by the FBI, who confirmed he was not involved in an altercation during the jet ride.
According to some official sources, the Hollywood star may be the person behind a lawsuit against the federal agency over a FOIA request denied about a past investigation on a private plane. Witnesses had alleged that Pitt struck Maddax “intentionally and then drove around the tarmac in a fuel truck, but returned to the plane soon after and the group departed for Los Angeles. Shortly after the incident, an anonymous source filed a complaint to the LA County Department of Children and Family Services, alleging that Pitt had committed both physical and verbal abuse against their son.
The woman claimed to have asked for the official FBI documents from the investigation, which they have yet to hand over. As a result, she’s suing the organization, though she would like her identity to remain anonymous.
But after Pitt, Jolie, and their children were interviewed it was claimed that there was no child abuse committed by Pitt and the investigation was closed. Investigators cleared Pitt of the abuse allegations, stating he had not committed child abuse when he got into a fight with Maddox, who was 15-years-old at the time. Now, after this new lawsuit’s filing, speculation is rife that Jolie is the anonymous woman behind it because of the similarities between the filing and the accusations the 46-year-old previously made against Pitt.
As per the lawsuit, Jane Do, a placeholder name for remaining anonymous, has filed numerous requests for a copy of the department’s investigative file for a “better understanding of the FBI’s investigation and obtaining information necessary for her children to receive medical care and trauma counseling.” The filing alleges the woman’s children “experienced lasting physical and mental trauma” after being “verbally and physically” assaulted by her then-husband.
Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, days after the plane incident, and asked for full custody of their kids. After Pitt was cleared of the abuse allegations, he responded to Jolie’s petition and stated his intent to seek joint custody of their children. The two met on the sets of ‘Mr. and Mrs. Smith’ in 2005 and tied the knot in 2014. They have six children together, namely, Maddox, 20, Pax, 18, Zahara, 17, Shiloh, 15, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 13.
