Following reports that Bratt Pitt is being investigated by the FBI for child abuse, TMZ has released new details about the alleged confrontation that took place between the actor and Angelina Jolie on a private plan from France to Los Angeles.
According to the site—who broke the initial news of Jolie's divorce filing—Pitt crossed a line by "lunging" at Maddox, who was verbally defending his mom during an argument.
From TMZ: "We're told Brad then lunged at the boy and Angelina jumped in between them to block her husband. Brad connected in some fashion with his son."
Reports differ as to whether Pitt was intoxicated at the time of the altercation or proceeded to get intoxicated afterwards. It's also unclear at this time how the alleged fight started and what the catalyst was—but sources say Pitt's never "acted agressively" toward his kids in the past.
