Hollywood stars Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s children were ‘shell-shocked’ when watching an alleged fight break out between the couple on a private jet in 2016, FBI files claim.
According to the documents, seen by several news outlets, Jolie claimed that Pitt yelled at their six children “mummy’s crazy”, when one of them tried to intervene when the actor “grabbed her by the head” during their row.
In the report, Jolie claimed herself and their six children; twins Knox and Vivienne (14), Pax (18), Shiloh (16), Zahara (17), and Maddox (21), who ranged between 8 and 15 at the time, were “shell-shocked” when Pitt started a drunken rant on the flight back to Los Angeles from France on September 14, 2016.
The actress said she felt “frozen, scared and didn’t know what to do” after Pitt reportedly “grabbed her by the head”, which prompted one of their children to say: “Are you ok Mommy?”
She claimed Pitt replied: “No Mommy’s not OK. She’s ruining this family. She’s crazy.”
Jolie sought a divorce days after the private flight.
In the FBI documents, the ‘Lara Croft’ star also claimed when one of their children called him an expletive to try to stop the fight, the actress held him back in a chokehold to restrain him.
The actress said she was hurt in the struggle, according to the report, which included pictures of her reported injuries to the hand and elbow.
Jolie claimed Pitt behaved like a “monster” on the flight, pouring beer on her and causing $25,000 of damage to the plane, mostly caused by red wine stains.
Pitt has always vehemently denied all of his ex-wife’s claims.
In the final report after its investigations, the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services concluded that Pitt did not physically abuse any of his children.
The actor was also cleared by the FBI of any wrongdoing.
An anonymous Jane Doe filed a lawsuit against the FBI under the Freedom of Information Act seeking the release of documents in April, with news outlets this week stating Jane Doe is Jolie.
NBC states the original filing described the plaintiff as a woman with the incident regarding “her then-husband, and their children, who were all minors at the time, were travelling via private aircraft”.
