Brad Pitt child abuse investigation extended

Brad Pitt and kidsFollowing an alleged violent incident between Brad Pitt and his 15-year-old son Maddox in mid-September, the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services is reportedly expanding their investigation to include all of Brad’s six children.

The investigation was initially focused on the alleged altercation between father and son and supposed end in October; however, according to a source at In Touch, it will be extended “for at least several more weeks” after new accusations against the actor have surfaced, which include multiple alleged instances of verbal abuse.

TMZ is reporting that the DCFS will investigate other alleged incidents between the Allied star and his estranged wife Angelina Jolie which were reportedly witnessed by some of their children. Because of these incidents, a source told the outlet that some of the kids are now afraid of their father.

News of the alleged abuse between Maddox and Brad was first reported by TMZ on September 22, shortly after Angelina filed for divorce. According to the report, a witness saw Brad intoxicated, yelling and “getting physical” with his son, which reportedly caused the actress to seek sole physical custody of their children. Both the LAPD and the FBI reportedly launched an investigation into the claims.

A source close to the actor vehemently denied the accusations, while a source at Us Weekly said Angelina, who currently has full custody of the kids after signing a temporary custody agreement, “is not trying to poison the kids against Brad. … She wants them to have a relationship with him once their health and safety is assured.”

    I really doubt he’s abusive to them

    I doubt it too, although Maddox not wanting to see him says a lot.

    Well he’s also a 15 year old, someone is always the enemy

    I’m curious to see what shenanigans Maddox will get into in the coming years.

    Verbal abuse? What did he do, as him to clean up his room? This is ridiculous. I don’t understand why people can’t just get divorced without all this other nonsense. If it is true, then that is sad but I doubt it.

    Managing one or two children can be difficult, but six is unimaginable to people who have not been in that situation. It is not always possible to have a calm conversation with kids about what is expect and what behaviour is not acceptable. Frustration will pump up the volume. So I am not in a hurry to see Brad as abusive unless clear evidence is presented. And what about Angelina. I have heard that in her attempts to be seen as a great humanitarian, has taken her kids with her on her jaunts to trouble torn places in the world, putting their safety at risk, all for the sake of image. Being that her children are famous by association, kid-napping for ransom is heightened on these jaunts.

    Maddox was Jolie’s before she got together with Brad. Brad isn’t his father. My God couldn’t these two find any kids in their own country to adopt??? There are enough of our own needing loving homes. Adopting kids for these two people is like campers who collect trailer stickers from every place they’ve visited. Just a collection — that’s all those kids are.
