The FBI won’t be reopening the investigation of Brad Pitt following a report revealed this week, a source close to the actor shared to Page Six.
The insider, who’s also a friend of the actor, said, “The statute of limitations is way gone and they have seen all the information at hand. There is nothing new here. At the time they considered all of Angelina’s allegations and didn’t bring any charges.”
“The FBI investigated the incident thoroughly, there is zero chance of them reopening the case. This is all a concerted effort to smear Brad.”
The friend also mentioned that though Jolie shared the same details from the FBI report in her ongoing custody battle against Pitt, a judge gave the actor 50/50 custody of their children.
The 47-year-old actress claimed in 2016 to the FBI that Pitt, 58, drunkenly pushed her on board a private jet and bruised her. Their children were upset about it.
The friend also mentioned: “Angelina’s claims were raised in at least two different legal contexts: the incident on the plane and then again during a lengthy custody trial. In one case, there were no charges brought and in another, Brad was granted 50/50 custody.”
The former couple divorced in September 2016 and since then they’ve been fighting over their kids. They’ve been in a custody dispute over their minor kids Zahara, 17; Shiloh, 16; and twins Vivienne and Knox, 14. Meanwhile, their sons Maddox and Pax are 21 and 18, respectively.
The outlet reported that Jolie claimed in the report which was made public earlier this week that the actor shout at her, saying, “You’re f–king up this family” and said that one of their children was like a “f–king Columbine kid.” It happened in September 2016 when they were on a flight from Nice, France to the US. Four days later, the Maleficent star filed for divorce.
According to Pitt’s friend, “This is six-year-old stuff that Angelina presented in the custody hearing. This is a six-year long campaign by Angelina to discredit Brad.
“This is really just Angelina’s version of events. This is what she claims happened …
“These claims were raised in the custody hearing and the judge obviously didn’t believe her, otherwise Brad would never have been given joint custody.”
