In June, Brad Pitt filed a lawsuit against ex-wife Angelina Jolie in which he took legal issue with her sale of a wine business the two built together during their marriage.
Angelina Jolie Claims Brad Pitt CHOKED Their Son During Drunken, Ugly Meltdown
Via his filing, Pitt alleged that Jolie sought to inflict harm on him by selling her stake in the company to someone who he believes will ruin the company.
Now, however, in her official response, Jolie has alleged that Pitt inflicted physical harm on their son, Maddox.
On Tuesday — through a submitted cross-complaint filed by Jolie’s attorneys in Los Angeles — the actress divulged alleged details from the September 14, 2016 private plane altercation that led to her divorce filing days later.
The aforementioned plane ride included Pitt, Jolie and some of their children flying to California from Paris.
A portion of the 17-page document reads, “When one of the children verbally defended Jolie, Pitt lunged at his child and Jolie grabbed him from behind to stop him.”
“To get Jolie off his back, Pitt threw himself backwards into the aeroplane’s seats injuring Jolie’s back and elbow. The children rushed in and all bravely tried to protect each other.”
“Before it was over, Pitt choked one of the children and struck another in the face. Some of the children pleaded with Pitt to stop.”
“They were all frightened.”
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are no longer married. The paperwork states that, over the course of “many tense hours” on the flight, Pitt “periodically emerged from the back of the plane to yell and swear at them” and “at one point, he poured beer on Jolie; at another, he poured beer and red wine on the children.”
Jolie filed to end her marriage a short time after this reported incident.
The star had chronicled the plane ride in previous court documents, but she hadn’t cited Pitt’s hands’ allegedly being placed on a child’s throat until this time around.
Pitt and Jolie — who was declared legally single by a judge back in 2019 — are parents to Maddox, 21, Pax, 18, Zahara, 17, Shiloh, 16, and 14-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.
The Los Angeles Department of Child and Family Services and FBI investigated Pitt years ago following an anonymous tip about a drunken argument he got into with Jolie while their family travelled on a private jet back home.
Pitt denied any abuse.
The FBI closed the investigation by November 2017 with no charges against the actor.
Pitt himself has not yet responded to these choking allegations.
He has spoken in the past, however, about having given up drinking after having some pretty serious issues with it over the years.
