Angelina Jolie Alleges Brad Pitt Abused her Before Plane Incident

Angelina Jolie alleges instances of physical abuse by Brad Pitt predate the infamous 2016 plane incident, amid an ongoing legal battle over their French winery, revealing new details and seeking evidence to support her claims in a recent court filing.

The ongoing legal battle between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt over their former French winery, Château Miraval, has taken a dramatic turn as Jolie’s legal team alleges a history of physical abuse by Pitt. According to court filings, Jolie’s lawyers claim that Pitt’s alleged abuse began before the highly publicized plane incident in September 2016.

Pitt initially sued Jolie in 2022, accusing her of violating contractual rights after she sold her share of Château Miraval without his consent. In response, Jolie’s countersuit revealed details of negotiations breakdown, alleging that Pitt demanded she sign a restrictive nondisclosure agreement (NDA) that would silence her regarding his alleged abuse towards her and their children.

Allegations of Abuse on Multiple Fronts

In the latest court motion, Jolie’s legal team seeks to unveil communications indicating Pitt’s refusal to allow Jolie to sell her share of the winery without signing an expansive NDA. The filing alleges that Pitt’s abusive behavior was not limited to the 2016 plane incident but had begun earlier, escalating during the family’s flight from France to Los Angeles.

The motion describes disturbing events aboard the plane, where Pitt allegedly assaulted Jolie and their children. Accounts detail Pitt choking one child, striking another in the face, and physically assaulting Jolie herself. Despite the severity of the altercation, no criminal charges were brought against Pitt, and investigations did not lead to his arrest.

Legal Maneuverings and Custodial Concerns

The legal back-and-forth between Jolie and Pitt extends beyond the Miraval dispute. Pitt’s attorneys have responded to Jolie’s claims by filing motions requesting disclosure of any NDAs Jolie entered into with third parties, suggesting inconsistencies in her allegations. Meanwhile, Jolie’s team seeks access to communications related to the plane incident investigation and the breakdown of Miraval negotiations.

The custody of their six children remains a central issue, with both Jolie and Pitt sharing joint custody. The legal proceedings shed light on the complexity of their relationship post-divorce and the contentious issues surrounding financial and parental rights.

Implications and Continued Legal Strife

As the legal battle intensifies, public attention remains focused on the allegations of abuse and the complexities of high-profile divorces. With both Jolie and Pitt maintaining their positions, the dispute over Château Miraval serves as a backdrop to broader issues of power, control, and accountability within celebrity relationships.
