Angelina Jolie accuses Brad Pitt of abuse

Angelina Jolie has filed court papers accusing ex-husband Brad Pitt of drunkenly attacking her and their children during a private plane flight, prompting her to file for divorce.

But new details were alleged in Tuesday’s filing in Los Angeles by Ms Jolie’s legal team.

It is part of an ongoing lawsuit over Chateau Miraval SA, a home and vineyard in the south of France that the former Hollywood couple acquired together.

Mr Pitt argues that he and his former wife had agreed not to sell their stakes in the venue without the permission of the other.

Ms Jolie disputes this and blames Mr Pitt for ending negotiations over purchasing her shares of the property.

According to BBC,Her cross-complaint on Tuesday says the actor was physically and emotionally abusive towards her and their six children – aged 8 to 15 at the time – during the private plane flight.

Her lawyers allege the Fight Club star began shouting, accusing her of being “too deferential to the children”.

Shortly into the flight, Mr Pitt “pulled her into the bathroom” in the back of the plane, says the lawsuit.

“Pitt grabbed Jolie by the head and shook her, and then grabbed her shoulders and shook her again” Pitt then punched the ceiling of the plane numerous times, prompting Jolie to leave the bathroom.”

After one child verbally intervened, Mr Pitt “lunged at his own child”, says the filing.

Ms Jolie then “grabbed him from behind to stop him”, according to the court papers.

“To get Jolie off his back, Pitt threw himself backward into the airplane’s seats injuring Jolie’s back and elbow,” the legal filing continues.

“The children rushed in and all bravely tried to protect each other. Before it was over, Pitt choked one of the children and struck another in the face.”

Ms Jolie’s lawyers say she and her children “sat still and silent under blankets” for the remainder of the flight.
