Sources familiar with the situation tell us, B.rad, Angelina and their kids were on a flight last Wednesday when he allegedly got wasted on the private jet. He allegedly went wild, screaming and getting physical with the kids.
Our sources say someone either on the plane or the tarmac anonymously reported the incident to the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services. We’re told B.rad and Angelina have already been interviewed and DCFS plans to interview the kids as well. That investigation is ongoing.
We’re also told the LAPD has the case … which is routine when anyone reports child abuse. We do not know the specifics of the alleged abuse … just that it was supposedly both verbal and physical.
Our sources say this incident triggered Jolie to separate from B.rad the next day and file for divorce just days later.
A source close to B.rad tells TMZ, “He takes the matter very seriously and says he did not commit any abuse of his children,” adding, “It’s unfortunate that people involved are continuing to present him in the worst possible light.”
