This doesn’t sound good for Brad Pitt!
According to reports from Thursday, the alleged altercation between the A-lister and his estranged wife Angelina Jolie may’ve been caught on camera. Oof!
In regards to the rumors swirling around the Jolie-Pitts’ fight on a private plane, insiders are now saying footage shows Pitt “looking drunk” and “yelling” during the supposed incident. This update supports earlier reports which have accused the 52-year-old of drunkenly fighting with the Oscar winner before turning on one of his children.
It’s said the video was taken on September 14 when the family was stopping for a fuel stop at Minnesota’s International Falls Airport. One source dished to Us Weekly:
“Brad is seen yelling a lot during it, but nothing physical.”
Well that’s good to hear! Another insider revealed:
“He got drunk and was fighting with Angie. Maddox stepped in to defend Angie and got in Brad’s face.”
Whoa. Nonetheless, the accounts of what went down on the private plane have certainly been conflicting.
While the source (above) claims the World War Z star never got physical with Maddox, a confidant told TMZ that the father-of-six “lunged” at his eldest — who was supposedly defending his momma. Despite the activist reportedly standing in between her teenager and now-estranged husband, it’s believed Brad connected with Maddox in some way.
Regardless, insiders close to Pitt are claiming the allegations about the show down are “inaccurate”. One person close to Brad defended:
“…teenagers have fights with their parents, especially when you have teens who are strong-willed and confident. You’re going to have back and forth…the abuse suggestions are inaccurate.”
In fact, another pal told DailyMail:
“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.”
As to why Brad has stayed relatively tight lipped about all of this drama, the unnamed friend noted:
“He is focused on the best interests of the kids right now, that is why he has remained silent despite the smears.”
Huh. We doubt we’re going to have a clear picture about what exactly transpired on the plane until the reported footage drops. Don’t worry we’ll keep you posted as this troubling story develops.
