Brad Pitt Cleared in Child Abuse Investigation

Brad Pitt Cleared of Child Abuse ChargesStill reeling from last night there is at least one person that America can believe in again and it’s America’s favorite actor Brad Pitt. After the heartbreaking news that the super A-list Hollywood couple would be divorcing, the news only got worse when it came out that the driving force behind the divorce was allegations of child abuse against Pitt. After a very intense and thorough investigation, he was cleared of any child abuse allegations by the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services. This a big win for Pitt in the fight for custody of the children that he shares with Angelina Jolie.

TMZ reported that they were informed by Law enforcement that DCFS concluded Wednesday it would close the investigation involving an incident in September between Brad and Maddox on a private jet. This incident was rumored to have been the breaking point for Jolie. She filed for divorce shortly after. It was determined that Pitt did not commit child abuse during an argument on the plane that ended with physical contact.

Social workers interviewed Brad, Angelina, the kids and witnesses on the plane. Everyone cooperated in the investigation and answered all the questions that DCFS has regarding the incident. Jolie claimed that this incident was part of a pattern of abuse on Pitt’s part that has gone on for years. DCFS didn’t buy Jolie’s claims and it was determined that no further action will be taken against Pitt.

This outcome is very favorable for Pitt in this custody battle. Currently there is a temporary custody agreement in place while Pitt is fighting Jolie for joint custody. California judges favor joint custody, unless it would be harmful to the kids so this could potentially mean that Pitt might get his wish.


No Joint Custody for Brad Pitt and According to Angelina Jolie

in Divorce by

0920-angelina-jolie-brad-pitt-getty-6The divorce battle rages on. This is starting to become on of Hollywood’s most contentious divorce and it is showing no sign of slowly down. The latest chapter to this crazy saga is that Angelina Jolie has turned turned down Brad Pitt’s request for joint custody and wants Pitt to have very limited access to the children with monitored visitations.

 TMZ reported previously that Pitt, 52,  filed his response to Jolie’s petition and asked the judge to grant him shared custody of the children. When Jolie, 41,  filed for divorce in September she requested sole custody of Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and 8-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox due to Pitt being an unfit father.  There is currently a temporary custody plan in place that requires Pitt to meet with his children only under supervision, and to undergo drug and alcohol testing.

And now Jolie is fighting against Pitt’s current petition to have joint custody. Basically they are filing petition after petition in regards to the custody of the children. Jolie believes that Pitt is abusive towards their children and the incident that caused the shocking split of Hollywood’s most A-List couple involved Pitt allegedly became verbally abusive towards on their children during an alcohol fueled rant on a private plane last September.

Jolie does not want to give Pitt any unsupervised visits with the children until he gets his act together and stops with his drinking. She does not feel like he has made enough changes in his life to give him unsupervised time with the kids. The divorce really caught him off guard and since it was announced that the couple is getting divorced, it seems like the fight for the kids is getting very heated.

Jolie/Pitt Divorce Update

in People by

angelina-jolie-pitt-and-brad-pitt-pose-innovator-awardsAfter announcing the demise of their relationship, the divorce is full steam ahead. There have been a few updates regarding the status of the Jolie/Pitt divorce saga. We haven’t done the individual updates so we have grouped them all together. It’s getting less messy but a lot has happened in a short amount of time. Reports have been conflicting over a lot of the events that kicked the divorce off so like everyone else, we are confused over what has actually happened. Rumors have been flying around that Pitt had an affair with Marion Cotillard and even Jen Aniston got dragged into it. Here are the things that we can confirm.

Update #1: They have agreed on a temporary custody agreement over the next three weeks. According to TMZ, the temporary agreement includes the following:

-Angelina gets temporary physical custody of the 6 kids until Oct 20th.

-Brad gets visitation, with strings attached. The initial visit is with a therapist present and the therapist then has the power to either allow Brad subsequent unmonitored visits or insist on being present whenever he’s around the kids.

-Brad is subject to random drug/alcohol testing.

-Brad and Angelina will each submit to individual counseling and Brad, Angelina and the kids will undergo family counseling together.

Update #2: Jolie doesn’t want Pitt charged with child abuse. She has stated that she will not cooperate with law enforcement if they decide to move forward with charges. Originally, she was working with the authorities but then changed her mind. There has been multiple accounts of what happened on the plane that kicked off the divorce. Sources have said that Pitt hit their son Maddox in the face but then another source said that Pitt lunged at Maddox and Jolie got in the way protecting her son. Since the reports are conflicting and Maddox had no visible wounds, it is unlikely that Pitt will be prosecuted.

Update #3: Angelina Jolie has added a new member to her powerful legal team. She has added  Pierce O’Donnell and Bert Fields to her roster of legal masterminds. Pierce and Bert are the lawyers who helped  Donald Sterling’s ex-wife Shelly Sterling nail him to the wall. They’re joining a group that already includes the real-life Olivia Pope Judy Smith, Robert Offer, and Laura Wasser. This is the best team that she could possibly assemble to help her with this divorce.

Brad Pitt Being Investigated for Child Abuse

3006990d00000578-3393557-image-a-39_1452503396230We couldn’t resist posting a #TBT photo of Brad Pitt when he was young and hot. This celebrity divorce is getting messier by the minute. After allegations started to surface that Brad Pitt has substance abuse issues, it is now being reported that he is being investigate by the LAPD and L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services for allegedly getting abusive with his kids following an incident on a private jet.

According to TMZ, (who let’s face it, is very rarely wrong when it comes to reporting celebrity gossip) Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and family were on a private jet when Pitt got drunk and started yelling and swearing at the children. They are also reports that he got physical with kids as well. Once the plane landed, Pitt continued yelling and causing a scene. Sources told TMZ that Pitt and Jolie have already been interviewed by DCFS and the kids will supposedly be interviewed next.

There is no information regarding who might have reported the abuse but Pitt is taking the matter very seriously. Sources says that this incident is what trigged Jolie to start the divorce process. It makes sense now why Jolie would be asking for sole physical custody if the allegations end up being true. This mess just keeps getting sadder and sadder.

Brangelina is No More

Jennifer is finally avenged. Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt. She filed legal documents this week that site irreconcilable differences as the reason for the divorce. The date of separation is cited as September 15th, 2016.

For those of you that have been in a coma for the last decade, Brad Pitt was married to Jennifer Aniston  when he worked with Angelina on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Soon after the movie was released, there were rumors abound about a secret relationship between Jolie and Pitt. Pitt and Aniston divorced and very shortly after, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were a couple. It didn’t take a genius to figure out the timelines overlapped a bit. The world was divided into Team Aniston and Team Jolie but in the end Pitt and Jolie were together for about 10 years and everyone thought that they would be the Hollywood couple that would actually make it.

Sources tell TMZ that the main reason for the divorce stems from how Pitt is parenting their children. She is asking for physical custody and she wants the judge to give Pitt visitation. She only wants joint legal custody with Pitt and not physical custody. This is pretty telling as to how she feels about his parenting. She is not asking for any child support.

Color us shocked. We thought that this crazy couple was going to actually make it. They both seemed slightly weird enough and in love enough to defeat all the odds.
