Angelina Jolie has reportedly accused her ex-husband Brad Pitt of domestic violence and claims she has "proof" in a new court filing. The filing was submitted on March 12, and according to Entertainment Tonight, The Blast, and Us Weekly, it says Angelina and her children are willing to give “proof and authority in support” of the claims. A source close to Pitt tells Us Weekly the filing is an attempt to “hurt” him.
Pitt and Jolie have not addressed the new filing publicly. Back in 2016, Pitt was cleared of allegations of child abuse by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Child and Family Services after each department conducted an investigation in November 2016. At the time, Jolie's rep released a statement:
"The job of the DCFS is to make sure the children are in a safe and secure situation," it read. "As we said earlier this week, childcare professionals encouraged a legal agreement accepted and signed by both sides that was in the best interest of the children. Angelina said from the beginning that she felt she had to take action for the health of the family and is relieved that after their 8-week involvement, the DCFS is now satisfied the safeguards are put in place that will allow the children to heal.”
Brad and Angelina split back in 2016 and their divorce has yet to be finalized. They also have yet to reach a custody agreement, though it's been reported that Brad wants 50/50 time with their kids, Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox, and Vivienne. Sources claimed the former couple had hoped to spend the holidays together last year, but a source at the time alleged that “egos have once again derailed the original idea."
