Angelina Jolie is anonymously suing the FBI to find out why her ex-husband Brad Pitt was not charged with domestic violence following the investigation of a fight between the couple during a private flight in September 2016.
According to information revealed by Variety, the actress would have filed a lawsuit against the American institution in April, requesting the documents of the investigation against the actor. Jolie would be trying to understand why no criminal case was filed against Brad at the time.
The documents reveal an intense fight between the former couple during a flight with their children. According to the report, Jolie told an FBI agent that Pitt “physically and verbally assaulted” her and her children. The agent, would have noticed that the actor took her ex-wife to the back of the plane, grabbed her head and shoulders, shouting phrases like:
“You’re screwing this family“.

During the fight, one of the children asked: “Are you okay, mom?” Pitt replied, “No, she’s not okay, she’s ruining this family, she’s crazy“. The boy then yelled, “It’s not her, it’s you“. According to the document, Pitt would have run towards his son, but Jolie held him down, suffering injuries. The actress sent photos of her alleged injuries to the FBI.
Also according to the FBI report, the actor would have spilled beer on Jolie while she was trying to sleep. At the end of the trip, she made the family wait 20 minutes to disembark, as she did not want him to take the children to a hotel in California, where he intended to rest.
“You will not take my children“, yelled the actor while pushing her.
According to the report, the assistant US attorney and the deputy chief of the US Criminal Division discussed the case in 2017 and decided not to press charges against Pitt. The actress filed for divorce six days after the episode was reported to the FBI.
