The ongoing legal battle between two divorced couples, Angelina Jolie, 48, and Brad Pitt, 60, is entering the next round. As Jolie's lawyer Paul Murphy, 48, has now told the Daily Mail, Pitt allegedly became violent before the alleged violent altercations on a flight from France to the US in 2016. Jolie announced this in court on Thursday. Pitt's alleged outburst of violence during the flight was the first directed at these children. Jolie herself was already physically abused by him.

Serious allegations of violence against actor Brad Pitt

The long-running dispute between the two Hollywood superstars appears to be over the sale of their former joint winery, Château Miraval in the south of France. Both acquired the property in 2008 at a price of around 26 million euros. In 2008, her twins Knox Léon and Vivienne Marcheline were born in a hospital in Nice. In 2014, they celebrated their wedding in the manor with their six children. The events surrounding the flight from Nice to Los Angeles just two years later destroyed the family idyll forever.

Eight years ago, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt flew again from Nice to Los Angeles on a private plane with their six children. Their winery in southern France, which they bought in 2008, was considered their safe haven. But a heated argument reportedly broke out during the flight, with Brad Pitt on one side and Angelina Jolie and some kids on the other. This incident is considered one of the reasons for the breakdown of their marriage, which officially ended in divorce in 2019. In 2022, Jolie claimed in an ongoing legal battle that Pitt became violent towards her and some of her children during the flight. Shaking, choking and impact were reported. The pain caused was so great that Jolie and the children could no longer return to their winery.

Angelina Jolie was pressured to sign a confidentiality agreement

Since Thursday, Jolie has been making serious allegations against her ex-husband. Her documented antics by her ex-husband against her were far from the first of their kind. She had suffered for a long time because Pitt couldn't control his temper – even in an estate in France. The events that took place during the flight were nothing new. According to Jolie's lawyers, she refused anti-aggression training. That's why Pitt pressured his ex-wife into a non-disclosure agreement in 2021. Jolie and her children should have made a commitment at the time not to talk about his alleged assaults.

Brad Pitt denies physical abuse

Pitt has denied all allegations of physical abuse and was not charged following an FBI investigation into the 2016 incident. Her legal representatives always wanted the same strategy behind Jolie's claims: “Every time she doesn't get what she wants, she adds completely false information,” her lawyers said in 2022. In the ongoing custody battle for the six children, Pitt is seeking the same side before sole custody. And this despite the fact that, according to Jolie's lawyers, she has not had a stable relationship with some children for “years”. Still, the attorney Thursday advocated that their client put the children's wants and needs first. The legal battle between the dream couple once dubbed “Brangelina” is likely to continue for a long time.
