Brad Pitt under investigation for child abuse: report

Brad Pitt is reportedly under investigation for child abuse.

TMZ reports that Los Angeles Police and the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services are investigating an incident that took place last Wednesday on a private jet in which Pitt allegedly "got wasted and went wild", screaming and getting physical with the kids. Witnesses say he continued his rants on the tarmac, and tried leaving in one of the fuel trucks.

The incident was reported to the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services, who interviewed Pitt and Jolie as part of their ongoing investigation.

Jolie filed for divorce days later and is seeking sole custody of their six children.

A source close to Pitt tells TMZ the actor did not abuse his children and said the allegations are an attempt to show Pitt in the worst possible light.
