Angelina Jolie reveal new details about a 2016 circumstance with her anterior husband Brad Pitt in a court filing Tuesday that stated Pitt was physically violent with Jolie and several of their children during a private plane ride in 2016, which Jolie says led to the end of the couple’s high-profile marriage.
The cross-complaint was filed Tuesday in a Los Angeles court as part of a civil case over control of a French winery the two owned together.
The filing, which was seen by the New York Times, described a September 2016 incident in which Pitt allegedly had a physical and verbal outburst on a private plane right from France to California, which took place just days before Jolie filed for divorce.
Jolie claims in the filing that the fight began when Pitt accused Jolie of being “too deferential” to their children and yelled at her in the plane bathroom before shaking her and pushing her against the plane wall and punching the plane’s ceiling.
One of the couple’s children came to Jolie’s defense, according to the filing, causing Brad Pitt to allegedly lunge at the child before striking one child in the face and choking another, and later pouring beer and wine on Jolie and the children.
Jolie’s lawyer’s said in the filing that Jolie had considered selling her stake in the winery to Pitt, but that talks stalled after Pitt asked her to sign a nondisclosure agreement that would have prohibited her from speaking out about the “physical and emotional abuse of her and their children.”
Representatives for Jolie and Pitt did not immediately respond to Forbes’ requests for comment and while neither Angelina Jolie nor Pitt has ever publicly addressed the incident, sources described as “close to Pitt” have been quoted in publications denying the allegations.
According to the report, Angelina Jolie told investigators that Pitt–who was allegedly drinking aboard the flight–asked Jolie to speak privately in the back of the plane after having a “tense interaction” with one of the children, according to CNN. Pitt accused Jolie of “f*cking up this family,” and told their children that Jolie was “crazy.”
Jolie’s description of the incident in the FBI report aligns with the Tuesday filing, which also alleged that the investigating FBI agent “concluded that the government had probable cause to charge Pitt with a federal crime for his conduct that day.”
