New developments in Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s divorce. TMZ reporting that Brad Pitt is under investigation for child abuse by the LAPD and LA County Department of Children and Family Services for allegedly getting verbally and physically abusive with his children which they say triggered the divorce.
According to TMZ and People, last Wednesday Brad, Angie and the kids were on a flight on a private jet. Brad allegedly got wasted and went wild, screaming and getting physical with the kids. TMZ says when the plane landed around 8pm witnesses tell them that Pitt continued his rant on the tarmac and even tried to leave in one of those fuel trucks.
They say someone saw his behavior and reported it to the LA County Department of Children and Family Services. TMZ says Brad and Angie have already been interviewed and that the DCFS plans to interview the kids as well.
This morning however the LAPD weighed in and said “They are not investigating Brad Pitt for Child Abuse, there is no investigation.” A source close to Pitt told TMZ, “He takes the matter very seriously and says he did not commit any abuse to any of his children.” Adding, ‘It’s unfortunate that people involved are continuing to present him in the worst possible light.”
A source close to Angelina tells People Magazine that days before filing she sat down with Brad and offered to file for divorce together. They also said Pitt knew his marriage was in trouble and had been going to counseling. According to the source Brad did beg Angie to press pause, not to reconcile so much but so they could prepare their children for the massive upheaval to come.
And which team are you #TeamBrad, #TeamAngie or #TeamTruth???
Brad Pitt’s co-star is clearly on #TeamTruth. She is going public to deny she has anything to do with the break-up, and making a big announcement of her own.
In a testy statement from Marion Cotillard, instead of denying the affair out right, she reveals she’s pregnant and that the father is not Brad Pitt, but with the man she’s been with for years. They already have a five year old son together.
Overnight Cotillard issued a flat out denial that she and Pitt were having an affair. Marion and Brad co-starred in his up- coming movie “Allied”. While they did share romance on the screen not in real life take.
She took to Instagram and wrote this, “This is going to be my first and only reaction to the whirlwind news that I was swept up into. I am not used to commenting on things like this, nor taking them seriously, but as this situation is spiraling and affecting people I love, I have to speak-up.” The 40-year-old continued, “Many years ago I met the man of my life, father of our son and of the baby we are expecting. He is my love, my best friend, the only one that I need.”
For her part she wishes Brad and Angie the best saying, “I do very much wish that Angelina and Brad both of whom I deeply respect, will find peace in this very tumultuous moment.”
This is going to be my first and only reaction to the whirlwind news that broke 24 hours ago and that I was swept up into. I am not used to commenting on things like this nor taking them seriously but as this situation is spiraling and affecting people I love, I have to speak up. Firstly, many years ago, I met the man of my life, father of our son and of the baby we are expecting. He is my love, my best friend, the only one that I need. Secondly to those who have indicated that I am devastated, I am very well thank you. This crafted conversation isn't distressing. And to all the media and the haters who are quick to pass judgment, I sincerely wish you a swift recovery. Finally, I do very much wish that Angelina and Brad, both whom I deeply respect, will find peace in this very tumultuous moment. With all my love Marion Ceci sera la première et seule réaction que j'aurai concernant la déferlante inouïe qui à commencé il y a de ça 24 heures et à laquelle je suis mêlée malgré moi. Je n'ai pas pour habitude de commenter ni de prendre au sérieux le tas d'absurdités déversées à mon sujet mais la situation prenant une telle tournure et affectant des gens que j'aime, je me dois de m'exprimer. Pour commencer, j'ai rencontré il y a quelques années l'homme de ma vie , le père de notre fils et du bébé que nous attendons aujourd'hui. Il est mon amour, mon meilleur ami et le seul homme dont j'ai besoin. Ensuite, à ceux qui me prétendent dévastée, je vais très bien merci. Ce genre d'inventions aberrantes ne m'affecte en aucun cas. Et pour finir, à la "presse", à tous les haters, trolls et consorts qui ont le jugement si rapide je vous souhaite sincèrement… un prompt rétablissement. Ceci dit et un peu plus sérieusement, je souhaite à Angelina et Brad, deux personnes pour qui j'ai un profond respect, de trouver la paix dans ce moment tumultueux. Avec tout mon amour. Marion
