Brad Pitt Is Allegedly Being Investigated For Child Abuse

And Marion Cotillard speaks out about her role in the rumored affair.

Things are getting uglier for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Their divorce proceedings were announced earlier this week, and naturally, the rumor mill started swirling.

TMZ reported early on Thursday that Pitt is being investigated over allegations of child abuse, saying he got drunk on their private jet the week before and became verbally abusive and physical with the kids on board. A witness told them that even when the plane landed, Pitt was yelling on the tarmac and attempted to leave in a jet fuel truck. They’re also saying that someone at the scene anonymously reported Pitt to the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services.

However, it might just be a rumor (even though riding off in a fuel truck certainly sounds like something a drunk entitled actor would do in a fit). The Daily Mail is reporting that they spoke with an LAPD spokesperson who said they’re not aware of any pending investigations on Brad Pitt.

Another rumor that can probably be dismissed is that Jolie filed for divorce because she was jealous over some relationship between Pitt and his co-star Marion Cotillard. Cotillard wrote a long post on Instagram regarding the rumors, saying in both English and French, “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," she continued. "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.”

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

None of us will ever know what goes on behind closed doors, but the Jolie/Pitt doors will keep getting rattled by speculation for quite some time to come.
