Brad Pitt Child Abuse Investigation Gets International Headlines

News outlets reported that a child welfare agency in Los Angeles is investigating the well-being of the children. Their six children include 15-year-old Maddox, 12-year-old Pax, 11-year-old Zahara, 10-year-old Shiloh, and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. The incident on the plane involved Pitt and his 15 his year son Maddox.

Jolie Pitt filed for divorce Monday and her lawyer told the Associated Press that Jolie Pitt came to the decision “for the health of the family.” She listed their separation date as Sept. 15, the day after the alleged plane incident, and the actress is seeking sole custody of all six of the children. Jolie is using the same attorney she used for her divorce from Billy Bob Thorton.

It was the second marriage for Pitt, 52, who previously wed actress Jennifer Aniston, and the third for Jolie Pitt, 41, who was previously married to Thornton and Jonny Lee Miller. Pitt hired attorney Lance Spiegel who has worked with celebrities like Charlie Sheen and Michael Jackson. He also handled Eva Longoria’s divorce from Tony Parker.

Pitt and Jolie Pitt were together for 12 years but did not marry until August 2014. They met on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, a movie in which they both starred.  They married at their French chateau in the Provence hamlet of Correns with their children serving as ring bearers.
