Angelina Jolie Met with the FBI for Over Four Hours to Discuss the Brad Pitt Plane Incident
Though he was accused of getting physical with Maddox after consuming alcohol during their family’s flight, Pitt denied any accusations of his wrongdoing two days after Jolie filed for divorce. Now, the FBI and the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services are investigating the incident to see if potential assault charges can be substantiated.
“The agents wanted a breakdown of everything that happened from when the plane took off to when it landed,” a source told Us Weekly. “They’re looking into charges of assault.”
Jolie, who, like Pitt, hopes to keep their divorce proceedings out of court, is said to have been fully cooperative with authorities.
“Neither side wants this to go to court because everything the FBI and DCFS investigated will potentially be made available to the public,” the insider explained, “which would be bad for the entire family.”
While Jolie and Pitt are willing to work with authorities, it could be months before the official investigation comes to an end. Authorities will likely investigate the case for another few weeks and, eventually, present the case to the prosecutor. The prosecutor will ultimately decide whether or not charges will be pursued, but the decision could take months.
For now, all six of their children will continue to live with Jolie full-time and Pitt will be allowed supervised visitation.
