Details of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s Alleged 2016 Airplane Incident Out in FBI Report
Angelina Jolie revealed an alleged verbal and physical attack by then-husband Brad Pitt on an aircraft in 2016 in an FBI report, E! News states.
An FBI report includes facts from Angelina Jolie’s account of an alleged incident involving the actress and Brad Pitt in 2016 while the couple was on a private plane with their children.
According to NBC News, an unidentified person described as “Jane Doe” requested the papers in a newly sealed Freedom of Information Act case filed against the FBI.
The plaintiff was described as a woman in the original filing, which was viewed by the outlet in March, and that “her then-husband and their children, who were all minors at the time, were traveling via private aircraft,” during which the “husband allegedly physically and verbally assaulted plaintiff and the children, who have ‘experienced lasting physical and mental trauma as a result of the assault.'”
Angelina claimed in an FBI report obtained by E! News on Aug. 17, which was initially shared with both parties in 2017, that her then-husband Brad—with whom she shares children Maddox, 21, Pax, 18, Zahara, 17, Shiloh, 16, and 14-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox—accused her of “ruining this family” during an altercation aboard a plane in September 2016.
According to the report, Jolie claims Pitt “grabbed her by the head” and shook her during their argument, and that she hit “the plane’s ceiling roughly four times.” The actress also claimed that she and Pitt had “conflict,” claiming that his actions made her feel “hostage-like” when they were on the plane.
Pitt was also accused of “becoming a monster” in front of their children, where he allegedly “ranted” and “mimicked the conduct of a monster and yelled at them.” Jolie claimed that the incident left her and her children “shell-shocked.” According to the paper, Jolie stated that when the plane touched down, they were unable to deplane immediately because the actor allegedly informed her, “You’re not getting anywhere. You’re not boarding that f—king plane. F*ck you all. I’m f—king abandoning you.”
According to NBC News, federal prosecutors announced five weeks after the September 2016 trip that they would not charge Pitt.
“After reading the document, a representative of the United States Attorney’s Office met with the case agent to discuss the merits of this investigation,” the FBI noted in the report. “All parties decided that criminal charges would not be pursued in this matter due to a number of considerations.” A source close to the issue tells E! News about the newly received report: “This material has been known to all parties for nearly six years and has been used in past legal processes. There is nothing new here, and the only aim is to cause suffering.”
After nearly eight years of dating, Jolie and Pitt married in 2014. The actress filed for divorce on September 19, 2016, citing irreconcilable differences. A judge pronounced them legally single in 2019.
