Someone has come out to defend Brad...

Last week, the world was shocked with the news about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s split. After 12 years and six kids together, Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt and this happened just after their two-year wedding anniversary. In the petition for divorce which Jolie filed on Monday, the actress requested sole physical custody of the couple’s six children – Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8.

Pitt is accused of being “verbally abusive” and getting “physical” with one of his children on the family’s private plane last Wednesday. However, Pitt did not strike his son Maddox during a heated mid-flight argument with Jolie last week, a source told People.

The source with knowledge of the incident said Pitt “was drunk, and there was an argument between him and Angelina”.

“There was a parent-child argument which was not handled in the right way and escalated more than it should have.”

The source says Pitt did not hurt his son. “He is emphatic that it did not reach the level of physical abuse, that no one was physically harmed. He did not hit his child in the face in any way. He did not do that; he is emphatic about that. He put his hands on him, yes, because the confrontation was spiraling out of control.”

“Brad made contact with Maddox in the shoulder area, and there was absolutely no physical injury to him.”

A source close to Pitt says any accusations beyond that are “a combination of exaggerations and lies. They have taken the overall smallest kernel of truth – that a fight got out of hand and reached a regrettable peak, and that as a result DCFS is looking into it – and they are manipulating it to best suit their attempts to gain custody.”

The L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services is investigating the 52-year-old after the alleged incident was reported to them anonymously. The case has also been referred to the FBI under special aircraft jurisdiction due to the incident being mid-flight.

How do you think this will pan out for the kids?

    • Absolutely only the business of the family

    • Absolutely only the business of the family

    • Agree this is none of our business. Leave them alone and let them make the decisions. The media love to cause trouble between any celebrity.

  2. The kids will become adults as quickly as anybody else’s. They will find jobs, marry, have kids of their own, live and get on their own lives. Amen.
    By that time Angelina & Brad will have remarried(not to each other)….and who really cares…they won’t be short of a quid even after sharing a huge chunk with lawyers & barristers. Happily ever after will elude them…but who truly cares?!!

  3. None of our business……

  6. Teenagers really know how to push your buttons, and things can quickly esculate. That’s life living with children. Hope the media can leave them alone to sort out their differences and move on !!!!

  7. I think it is absolutely disgusting that Angelina or her solicitors are involving the children in this. Parents do have arguments at times with their children. To me Angelina is doing more harm to this child by blowing the incident out of proportion, how is this going to rest on Maddox, he will always feel that the separation was his fault. The press and the legal people should tread very carefully with this

  8. I am absolutely fed up with hearing from the same old suspects…”a source close to….”, “a friend close to the family”, and, of course that good old “anonymous source!” It’s time that the media stopped dredging up these non-existent entities, or – if they DO exist, they should be named! Too many people get away with spreading gossip and lies and not being held accountable for their actions!

  9. Is this the ONLY issue, the world is having at present. This is a couple, both had several marriages & many partners in their lives. Bad Pitt had at least 7 or 8 women in his life & several times married. Angelina Jolie too was married twice, before getting married to Brad Pitt, and also had about the same number of partners, like Pitt, before they got married. If they are compared to to a “Chicken Farm Shed”, Brad Pitt was like a Rooster (Cock) with several hens been serviced from time to time. Angelina Jolie, can be compared to a “Chicken Pen”, with one hen and several Roosters(cocks) in it, from time to time. This is not a reason to turn the world up side down, & be the major news in the world. What a shame, the world press doesn’t have anything better than this to report.

  10. Personally, it’s none of our business. It is a family matter involving THEIR family. They are the only ones who know what happened. I find this news coming out very suspicious…after all Angelina did just file for divorce and it would appear she wants things to go her way. It certainly doesn’t take a rocket scientist to do the math here. I feel sorry for the children, looks like this will be an ugly divorce with no winners.
