FBI probe plane row

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

Al­le­ga­tions of abuse against Brad Pitt are “ex­ag­ger­ated and fab­ri­cated”, ac­cord­ing to sources close to the star.

Af­ter it was re­vealed that Pitt is re­port­edly be­ing in­ves­ti­gated by the FBI for child abuse af­ter a con­fronta­tion while drunk on a pri­vate jet, sources close to the ac­tor have hit out at the “smear cam­paign” against him.

Dai­lyMail.com quoted source as say­ing: “These claims are ex­ag­ger­ated and fab­ri­cated. It’s un­for­tu­nate for the whole fam­ily that peo­ple are in­sist­ing on con­tin­u­ing this end­less smear cam­paign against Brad that hurts ev­ery­one.

“They are a solid fam­ily with two car­ing par­ents and a nor­mal share of ver­bal dis­agree­ments like ma­jor house­holds.

“Hope­fully peo­ple can move on and leave them all alone to work this out.”

It has been claimed that Mad­dox, 15, stepped in when a row between Brad and his now-es­tranged wife An­gelina Jolie be­came heated on board a pri­vate plane from France to Los An­ge­les ear­lier this a month. Mad­dox was adopted by An­gelina from Cam­bo­dia when he was only a few months old in 2002 and Brad, who started dat­ing An­gelina a few years later, adopted him in 2006.

The cou­ple also have chil­dren Pax, 12, Za­hara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivi­enne, eight to­gether and all six chil­dren were on­board the flight when the row broke out.

But, Brad, 52, is said to be hope­ful that the al­le­ga­tions will be dropped soon af­ter cam­eras at Min­nesota’s In­ter­na­tional Falls Air­port – where the plane stopped to re­fuel – cap­tured the ar­gu­ment.

A source told US Weekly: “Brad is seen yelling a lot dur­ing it, but noth­ing phys­i­cal.”

Brad is said to be tak­ing the in­ves­ti­ga­tion “very se­ri­ously” and is “scared” he will lose his chil­dren over some­thing that never hap­pened.

An­gelina, 41, filed for di­vorce last week and re­quested joint le­gal, but sole phys­i­cal, cus­tody of their chil­dren.
