Barely 48 hours after Hollywood stars, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie announced their divorce, reports have it Pitt is being investigated by police and social services in Los Angeles amid claims he got ‘verbally abusive and physical with his children’ on a private jet.
The family is said to have been on a flight when he allegedly became ‘wasted’ and started ‘screaming’ before continuing the ‘rant’ on the tarmac when the plane landed, trying to leave the scene in a fuel truck.
According to TMZ, the alleged episode which reportedly occured last Wednesday, prompted Angelina Jolie to split from the 52-year-old the next day and then file for divorce.
Pitt is believed to be under investigation by the LAPD and LA County Department of Children and Family Services. He and Jolie are said to have been interviewed as part of the probe, and there are plans for authorities to speak to the children, Daily Mail reports.
A source close to Pitt was quoted as saying: ‘He takes the matter very seriously and says he did not commit any abuse of his children.
‘It’s unfortunate that people involved are continuing to present him in the worst possible light.’
A colleague of the couple meanwhile tells Access Hollywood that while Jolie wants the children to have a relationship with Pitt, there are no plans for visitation between the six kids and their father at this time.
