Brad Pitt has responded to Angelina Jolie’s claims that he physically abused her and choked one of their children on a trip from France to California in 2016 in a recent court declaration.
In a statement to NBC News, Brad Pitt’s attorney, Anne Kiley, stated that Pitt “has owned everything he’s liable for from day one —unlike the other side — but he’s not going to own anything he didn’t do.” He has been the object of numerous defamatory and hostile remarks.
According to Kiley, “happily, have made their own independent decisions” the numerous governmental authorities that the opposite side attempted to use against him during the preceding six years. The statement added, “Brad will respond in court as he always has.”
Both Angelina and Bred allegation on each other
Brad filed a lawsuit on Tuesday, October 4, and Jolie, 47, responded with a cross-complaint in Los Angeles County Superior Court. Pitt alleged that Jolie had sold her half of the couple’s winery, Château Miraval, without his consent.
In the complaint, which NBC News was able to obtain, Jolie claimed that the encounter on the exclusive trip in September 2016 was what ultimately led her to file for divorce.
Jolie alleged in the complaint that Pitt “was physically and emotionally abusive to Jolie and their children, who were then between the ages of 8 and 15 during the lengthy, nocturnal voyage.”
Before it was done, Pitt choked one of the kids and smacked another in the face when one of the kids aggressively defended Jolie and Pitt rushed at his own child, according to the lawsuit. Jolie stopped him by grabbing him from behind. Some of the children pleaded with Pitt to stop. They were all afraid.
Additionally, it was claimed in the complaint that before going to sleep, Pitt poured beer and red wine on their kids.
The Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services and the FBI wrapped up their investigations into what transpired aboard the private plane in November 2016.
After reading the paper, a representative of the United States Attorney’s Office spoke with the case agent about the merits of this investigation, according to an FBI report on the incident from 2017 that NBC News obtained.
Due to a number of factors, all parties agreed that the case would not be prosecuted criminally.
Six children—Madddox, Zahara, Shiloh, Pax, Knox, and Vivienne—were born to Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
Which of their children may have been hit was not specifically mentioned in the complaint.
