Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie has been revealed as the unnamed plaintiff who was behind the anonymous 2016 lawsuit in which the plaintiff alleges being assaulted by her “then-husband” on a private plane.
Angelina Jolie revealed as plaintiff who has filed an anonymous FBI lawsuit against Brad Pitt for assault allegations
As shared by Variety, several years ago Jolie told an FBI agent that Pitt “physically and verbally assaulted” her and their children when they were aboard the plane. Per the agent’s notes at the time, Pitt allegedly took Jolie to the back of the plane, grabbed her shoulders and shouted things like, “You’re f***ing up this family.”
Jolie alleged that on the same flight, another physical altercation occurred, which caused her to sustain injuries, including on her elbow. She also said that Pitt was drinking at the time, and had poured beer on her. Pitt’s team has denied all accusations.
According to the report, the special agent then met with the assistant U.S. attorney and concluded that they would not pursue criminal charges, causing Jolie to anonymously file a Freedom of Information Act suit against the FBI in order to obtain documents related to the federal investigation against Pitt. That Jolie was granted permission to file a case against the FBI anonymously was an “intriguing decision” that captured attention in Washington D.C., according to Politico.
According to Jolie’s complaint which was amended in August, as shared by Variety, “Ms. Doe has been seeking the withheld information for [several] years in an effort to ensure that her children receive qualified…care and…counseling to address harm suffered…Information withheld by DOJ and the FBI contains evidence of the harm. The persistent denial of that information to Ms. Doe…a victim of the assault herself — has hampered, and continues to hamper, her efforts to obtain for her children necessary ongoing care and medical attention, and has further harmed the children in the family law system.”
Brad Pitt has denied the allegations of physical abuse in the years since, and no charges were ever filed. Pitt’s team denied that he hurt his son, issuing the following statement to People: “He is emphatic that it did not reach the level of physical abuse, that no one was physically harmed. He did not hit his child in the face in any way. He did not do that; he is emphatic about that. He put his hands on him, yes, because the confrontation was spiraling out of control.” He and Jolie divorced shortly after the alleged incident on the plane.
