Brad Pitt Investigated For Child Abuse!

Flying private has about one billion advantages over flying (shudder) commercial but one notable drawback is that if a passenger becomes unruly, you don’t have 200 other people handy to subdue them. Rumor has it Angelina Jolie found this out the hard way in an incident that lead to a rumored child abuse investigation!

Let me explain.

According to reports, last Wednesday Brad Pitt and Angie were on a private jet and BP got so wasted he started wilding out, and not in the fun way. He was screaming, throwing a fit, and apparently getting physical with one of their kids. The plane landed around 8 p.m. and Brad was still flipping out, stomping around the tarmac and even trying to leave via a fuel truck!

Well, someone called Child Protective Services and anonymously reported the incident and now he (and Angie) (and the kids) have been interviewed by the Department of Child and Family Services. There was a report that the LAPD was also involved, but a press officer put that to rest:

“We don’t have anything on Brad Pitt right now,” said the Public Information Officer for the LAPD, We have confirmed with the detectives, and according to our detectives there are no active investigations regarding Brad Pitt.”

Still, I’m told that the fiasco was bad enough to spur Angie to file for divorce, but sources close to BP say it’s all BS.

“He takes the matter very seriously and says he did not commit any abuse of his children,” says the insider, “It’s unfortunate that people involved are continuing to present him in the worst possible light.”

Certainly scary if it’s true.
