The actor Brad Pitt will not “own anything he did not do.” During Angelina Jolie’s accusations, a lawyer says
Under-fire After the actor’s ex-wife Angelina Jolie alleged additional charges of violence, Brad Pitt’s lawyer asserts that the actor won’t “own something he didn’t do.”
According to Pitt’s lawyer, Anne Kiley, “Brad has owned everything he’s accountable for from day one — unlike the other side,” she told Page Six on Thursday.
The statement said, “He’s not going to own anything he didn’t do.” “He has been the target of every kind of defamation and personal attack.”
The public authorities that the opposition has attempted to use against him over the past six years, Kiley continued, “gratefully, have taken their own independent conclusions. In court, Brad will continue to reply as he always has.
In court filings submitted on Tuesday, Jolie accused Pitt of choking one of their six kids on a private jet in September 2016.
The “Maleficent” actress, 47, detailed what allegedly happened on the now-famous trip that prompted her to seek for divorce in a countersuit acquired by Page Six.
The “Fight Club” star, 58, was accused of “choking one of the children,” “slapping another in the face,” and “shaking Jolie.”
Along with pouring beer on her, Jolie said that Pitt also gave their kids wine and beer.
The petition stated that the actress attempted to step in at one point and “grabbed” her ex-husband from behind in an effort to stop him.
The docs stated that Pitt “threw himself backwards into the airplane’s seats to remove Jolie off his back, bruising Jolie’s back and elbow.”
“The kids ran in and fiercely sought to defend one another. Pitt choked one of the kids and hit another one in the face before it was all done. A few of the kids begged Pitt to stop. All of them were terrified. There were many sobs.
Six children were born to the former couple, who tied the knot in August 2014. They are twins Vivienne and Knox, 14, Maddox, 21, Pax, 18, Zahara, 17, and Shiloh, 16. They have been engaged in a contentious custody battle for their minor children since their 2016 divorce.
The FBI opened an inquiry into Pitt about the alleged in-flight incident of child abuse.
Authorities did not press charges against the “Bullet Train” actor, who announced his sobriety in September 2019.
A representative of the United States Attorney’s Office decided not to prosecute Pitt after speaking with the case agent, according to documents previously obtained by Page Six.
The documents said that “it was agreed upon by all parties that criminal charges in this instance would not be pursued owing to many circumstances.”
This is all for show, as a source close to the “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” star informed us in August, adding that “Angelina and her crew have been urgently trying to find something.” She already knew all of this knowledge five and a half years ago. Nothing new is presented here.
However, Jolie’s attorneys argued in the latest countersuit that there was “probable cause to charge Pitt with a federal crime for his conduct that day” according to the FBI agent who looked into the claims.
In response to a lawsuit Pitt had brought against Jolie over the sale of her share in the French castle where they were married months before, Jolie filed a countersuit on Tuesday.
In a prior filing, the “Moneyball” actor asserted that neither of them would sell their respective portions of Château Miraval and its lucrative vineyard without the consent of the other.
According to the filings, Jolie’s cross-complaint requested “the Court to certify that no such ‘consent’ agreement exists.”
In the complaint, the “Salt” actress said that Pitt “demanded she sign a non-disclosure agreement that would have contractually banned her from commenting about Pitt’s physical and mental abuse of her and their children outside of court.”
The documents assert that Pitt walked away from the contract because Jolie reportedly “refused to agree to such a stipulation,” and that any agreement about the château is “invalid” as a result of Pitt’s attempt to condition the deal on Jolie’s “silence.”
