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.”
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.
