Angelina Jolie Reportedly Spoke With The FBI For Four Hours During Alleged Brad Pitt Investigation
Reportedly, the investigation into Brad Pitt's alleged airplane incident is going forward. According to Us Weekly, Angelina Jolie was reportedly interviewed by two FBI agents for four hours in her LA home about what could have happened when Pitt allegedly got physical with his kids on an airplane in September. And if these new details about the situation are true, this ordeal could be far from over. Bustle has reached out to Jolie and Pitt's reps regarding this new report and about the other claims about their family, but has not received a response.
Earlier reports from Us Weekly stated that the alleged incident went down at Minnesota's National Falls Airport and may have even been caught on video. Allegedly, Pitt was arguing with Jolie when their son Maddox got involved to defend his mom. As Us Weekly reports, sources close to Pitt claim he adamantly denies "any wrongdoing on his part." Last week, Pitt reportedly saw Maddox for the first time after the fight during a supervised visit, although investigations into the situation are ongoing. And according to Us Weekly's latest update, it's not just Jolie who's being questioned — reportedly, her children have been answering questions too, and a source close to the situation claims the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services is looking into the case, as well.
The source claimed:
"The agents wanted a breakdown of everything that happened from when the plane took off to when it landed. They’re looking into charges of assault ... Neither side wants this to go to court because everything the FBI and DCFS investigated will potentially be made available to the public, which would be bad for the entire family.”
Reportedly, this investigation could last for months, and the source also claimed that the FBI could be involved for another few weeks. So far, Jolie has been fully cooperative with agents, claims the same insider.
When Pitt and Jolie's divorce was first announced, the actor released the following statement via People:
I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well being of our kids. I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time.
The FBI previously released a statement to Bustle on the situation:
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.
Regarding the new report that claims the investigation moved forward, the FBI told Bustle it is unable to confirm media reports and that its position remains the same.
The L.A. DCFS Public Information Officer previously told Us Weekly: "We’re prohibited by law from disclosing case specific information or even identifying any involvement with any client."
Here's hoping this situation is able to be resolved as quickly as possible — if not for Jolie and Pitt, then for their children.
