Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie divorce was indeed the result of his parental behaviour. In a shocking revealation, it has now come to light that Brad Pitt is being investigated by Los Angeles police department and L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services for allegedly getting verbally abusive and physical with his children, according to a TMZ report.

Brad and Angelina were travelling with their children when the actor allegedly got drunk on the plane. He allegedly went wild, screaming and getting physical with the children, the report says. He was so wasted, his shouting continued even after the plane landed. Brad even tried leaving in one of the fuel trucks, TMZ wrote.

This incident was then reported by someone anonymously to the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services. According to the report, Brad and Angelina have already been interviewed and the children will be interviewed as well.

The police are also involved. While the detail of abuse have not been revealed, it is alleged that it was both verbal and physical. The incident took place on Wednesday and Angelina Jolie filed for divorce soon after.

Angelina’s Monday divorce filing comes after 12 years together and two in marriage. The couple wed in August 2014, privately at their French chateau in the Provence hamlet of Correns with their children serving as ring bearers and throwing flower petals.
