Angelina Jolie turned out to be the anonymous plaintiff who sued Brad Pitt in 2016 for assault.
Here’s everything you need to know.
Angelina Jolie reported Brad Pitt anonymously to the FBI investigation.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are said to have been the subject of a lawsuit alleging that the plaintiffs had been abused by their “husband at the time”.
According to Puck’s report, Jolie told FBI agents a few years ago that Pitt had “physically and verbally assaulted” herself and her children.
The incident is said to have taken place in a private plane carrying a famous family.
An FBI agent said that Pitt took Jolie to the back of the aircraft. Then he grabbed her by the shoulder and shouted, ‘You ruined this family.’
The 47-year-old actress claimed another physical crash occurred during the same flight. She appears to have sustained an injury to her elbow as a result of her quarrel.
Jolie also said that Pitt poured him beer. However, the team of Fight Club actors denied all charges.
The Eternal star then reportedly filed a lawsuit against the FBI as Jane Doe, alleging charges against her ex-husband in a 2016 case that eventually led to divorce.
Brad Pitt was charged with child abuse that same year.
The FBI and the Los Angeles Department of Child and Family Services previously charged Brad Pitt with child abuse.
The 58-year-old actor is said to have had a physical fight with his 15-year-old son Maddox on a family plane.
Reportedly, Maddox was involved in an argument between Angelina Jolie and Pitt.
The Primetime Emmy Award winner also issued a statement in People magazine addressing the issue. He denies allegations that he injured his son.
The statement emphasized that ‘the level of physical abuse had not been reached and no one was physically injured.’
‘I did not hit the child in the face in any way. He didn’t. He stresses that.’
They went on to say, ‘He laid his hand on him. Yes, because the confrontation was out of control.’
Shortly after the incident, the celebrity couple announced their divorce and Pitt publicly gave up drinking. There were no charges against him at the time.
