Angelina Jolie filed a Lawsuit against her Ex-Husband and The FBI
According to reports, Angelina Jolie told an FBI agent that she was “physically and verbally assaulted” on a private jet by her ex-husband. Sources say that after talking with Jolie, the agent met up with the assistant U.S. attorney. The actor was put under investigation in 2016 for child abuse over this incident. It was concluded after the investigation that no criminal charges would be pursued against Pitt.
One of Pitt’s representatives said that she is only trying to inflict as much pain as possible on him. The rep further explained that the court and the FBI had this evidence for years and they decided not to charge Brad Pitt. They must have investigated it and they purposely decided not to push charges because it was not factual data. “This is what she claimed happened“, the rep said.
The former couple who got married in 2014 share six kids together. Since their filing for divorce in 2016, the ex-couple have been involved in a fierce battle over the custody of their kids. In 2021, Pitt was finally granted 50-50 custody of his children.
