Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie has revealed the specifics of her brawl with ex-husband Brad Pitt in a private plane in 2016. She claimed that she was Jolie, that “Pett poured alcohol and beaten me and my children.”
According to the New York Times (NYT) and Variety on the 4th (local time), Jolie filed a countersuit against Pitt’s first claim for damages related to a French winery in the Los Angeles Court.
The couple ended up divorced in September 2016 after fighting fiercely on a private plane returning to California after a two-week vacation with their six children.
“As soon as Pete boarded the plane, he grabbed my hair and assaulted me, as well as attacking my children,” Jolie said in a complaint filed with the court.
According to the complaint, Pete dragged Jolie to the bathroom at the back of the plane shortly after boarding the plane. Pete grabbed Jolie’s hair and shook it, then grabbed his shoulder and pushed it against the bathroom wall.
Jolie claims that when one of the children spoke to defend the mother, Pete ran at the child, and Jolie grabbed him from behind to prevent it.
The warden also contained the beginning of the fight. Pitt accused Jolie of being “too deferential” with her children, and the fight began when she yelled at Jolie in the bathroom.
In particular, Jolie alleges that Pitt strangled one of his children and slapped another in the face. It is also said that he grabbed Jolie’s head and shook it, pouring beer on Jolie and beer and wine on his children.
Pitt’s side is said to have denied Jolie’s allegations. However, the New York Times and others said they contacted Pitt’s lawyers, but did not respond.
After an in-flight brawl, Jolie filed for divorce, and the two are currently fighting over custody and property division. They have six children: Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh and twins Vivianne and Knox.
Meanwhile, Pitt and Jolie are also in a legal battle over the sale of the French vineyard Chateau Miraval, which they bought together in 2008 for $28.4 million.
