In an FBI report, Jolie revealed that Brad Pitt verbally and physically assaulted her while the pair were aboard a plane in 2016.
Recently, a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed against the FBI listed an unknown individual as “Jane Doe” seeking access to the documents.
The actual filing, which was viewed in March by the outlet, defined the plaintiff’s gender and stated that “her then-husband, and their children, who were all minors at the time, were traveling via private aircraft,” on which “husband allegedly physically and verbally assaulted plaintiff and the children, who have ‘experienced lasting physical and mental trauma as a result of the assault.'”
In an FBI report obtained on August 17 and previously shared with both parties in 2017,
Angelina said her then-husband Brad—with who she shares kids Maddox, 21, Pax, 18, Zahara, 17, Shiloh, 16, and 14-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox—indicted her of “ruining this family” during a dispute aboard a plane in September 2016.
Jolie alleges that Pitt “grabbed her by the head,” shook her during their argument, and hit “the ceiling of the plane approximately four times.” The actress also claimed, “tension” between her and Pitt, alleging that he made her feel “like a hostage” while they were on the plane.
Moreover, she described Pitt as “becoming a monster” while he “ranted” in front of children as well “mimicked the behavior of a monster and screamed at them.” She alleged that she and the children were “shell-shocked” at the time.
Based on the document, Angelina said that when the plane landed, they weren’t able to deplane right away since the actor allegedly told her, “You’re not f–king going anywhere. You’re not getting off this f–king plane. F–k you all. I’m f–king leaving you.”
Federal prosecutors decided not to file charges against Pitt five weeks after the flight in September 2016. “After reviewing the document, a representative of the United States Attorney’s Office discussed the merits of this investigation with the case agent,” FBI reports. “It was agreed by all parties that criminal charges, in this case, would not be pursued due to several factors.”
As for the newly obtained report, a source close to the situation says, “All parties have had this information for nearly six years and was used in previous legal proceedings. So there is nothing new here and serves no purpose other than to afflict pain.”
After dating for nearly eight years, Jolie and Pitt married in 2014. The actress filed for divorce on September 19, 2016, citing irreconcilable differences. A judge declared them legally single in 2019.
Since the incident, Jolie and Pitt have not heard back.
