And the saga continues…
On Tuesday, sources say Brad Pitt's child abuse investigation conducted by the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services has now been expanded to include the entire family including Angelina Jolie.
While the case primarily focused on an incident where the Troy actor allegedly attacked son Maddox on a plane, authorities are now looking at other alleged incidents involving Brad AND Angie that were allegedly witnessed by 1 or more of their children.
Most notably, there are reports of "unintentional contact" between the actor and a child.
This new development was based on interviews the DCFS did with members of the family and members of the flight crew of the said plane incident.
Because of these new claims, the investigation has been expanded "several weeks." While officials may interview more people, they hope to wrap things up very shortly.

Jen's bestie Chelsea Handler was one of the first to chime in on the situation, calling Miz Jolie a "f*cking lunatic," and even wondered on air why Brad "would need to self-medicate." Tell us how you really feel, Chels!
Anyway, in a new interview with Grazia Daily, the 41-year-old once again brought up how "stupid and pathetic" it was that people even dragged Miz Aniston into the divorce headlines in the first place.
The Chelsea star explained:
Well, apparently, the Fight Club actor feels that by responding to the divorce filing he will spark a nasty legal battle between himself and his estranged wife — a situation he doesn't want to drag his children into.
According to TMZ, the 52-year-old's answer was due to be filed on Wednesday. However, Pitt let the deadline come and go as he's
Brad Pitt is one step closer to mending his relationship with his son Maddox.
As we previously reported, the 15-year-old refused to accompany the rest of the Jolie-Pitt kiddos to an emotional reunion with their famous father earlier this month. This wasn't necessarily shocking news as the teenager supposedly faced off against the Fight Club actor during an alleged plane incident.
Angelina Jolie is NOT happy!
As you may or may not know, Perezcious readers, these two have had a rocky relationship over the years, and really don't speak to each other much!
But, that's clearly not stopping the World War Z star from dishing about his high-profile split with the 77-year-old! A source spilled:
"[Brad] told her dad that what he loves about her is how passionate and extreme she is. He's been drawn to that."
And, while the 52-year-old gushed about his former flame, the Ray Donovan alum wasn't as pleasant when describing his darling daughter.
In fact, an insider added that Jon supposedly said the 41-year-old is "erratic" like her late mother, Marcheline Bertrand.
Jon and Brad have been pretty close throughout the Fight Club actor's marriage to Miz Jolie, but Angie is apparently LIVID that her dad is giving her ex some tips in the wake of their big breakup!
A confidante confessed:
As you know, Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from her longtime love after an alleged incident occurred on a flight back to LA from Europe (stopping in Minnesota) — and the FBI has been trying to gather all the facts ever since.
According to TMZ, two officials met with Angie and all the kids for about three hours on Tuesday in order to determine
According to Us Weekly, 15-year-old Maddox Jolie-Pitt refused to attend the monitored meet-up with Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox on October 8.
A source close to the actress revealed:
"He chose not to go and stayed with Angie."
While no explanation was given, an insider asserted "Maddox is very close with Angie," while another explained of the 15-year-old's choice, saying:
