Brad Pitt's Lawyer Responds to Angelina Jolie’s Abuse Allegations

8 October 2022 01:27

Brad Pitt's lawyer said on Thursday that, he will continue to respond in court to allegations from ex-wife, Angelina Jolie, that he abused her and choked one of their children on a flight in 2016. 

FBI and the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services investigated the allegations but decided to take no action against Pitt. 

They were also aired in testimony at the couple's divorce trial, after which a judge found Jolie and Pitt should have 50-50 custody, though that result was nullified when the judge was disqualified by an appeals court.

Neither Pitt nor Jolie have spoken publicly about what happened on the flight, though Jolie has publicly advocated for strengthening domestic laws, and has revisited the abuse allegations through legal moves, such as Tuesday's cross-complaint to a lawsuit, Pitt filed over the home and winery in France, which they were leaving for Los Angeles on a private flight when the incidents occurred.
