Brad Pitt’s team thinks Angelina’s FBI lawsuit is a ‘desperate fishing expedition’

As we heard, it appears as if Angelina Jolie is suing the FBI for their investigative and bureaucratic records into the 2016 plane incident. In September 2016, Angelina, Brad Pitt and their six children were on a private plane, flying from France to California, when some horrible sh-t went down. Over the years, we’ve gotten an idea of what happened – Brad was very drunk and abusive. He verbally and physically abused Angelina or the kids. Maddox was singled out, and I’ve always believed that Maddox (who was then 15) got in between Jolie and Pitt as Pitt was screaming at or hurting Jolie. In the years that followed the incident, the kids don’t want to have anything to do with Brad, and Angelina has fought for their rights and for their mental health.

As for the FBI… they briefly investigated the incident and then closed the investigation without charging anyone. Angelina’s lawsuit – which she filed as a Jane Doe, but everything lines up – says that the FBI closed their investigation without warning her or the kids, and she’d like to know why they didn’t investigate thoroughly too. Those are the records she’s seeking, and the FBI has been stonewalling her for a while. Well, wouldn’t you know, Team Pitt ran straight to Page Six to put their stink on the story:

Legal insiders say there is “an extremely strong possibility” that the suit was allegedly filed by Jolie, because all the facts line up. We reached out to reps for both Jolie and Pitt, who didn’t comment.

A source claimed Jolie is allegedly trying to find damaging information against Pitt as the custody battle over their six children continues.

The legal source said, “There is little precedent for the FBI sharing information about an investigation that was closed with no charges. Angelina is likely looking for a morsel of information, something else to use against Brad, to hurt him. This is a desperate fishing expedition trying to find something that likely doesn’t exist in FBI notes and make it public.”

The source added that both Jolie and Pitt were given information about the investigation when the FBI closed the case five and a half years ago.

Amanda Kramer, the attorney who filed the lawsuit on behalf of Jane Doe, said, “I am unable to comment on the identity of Jane Doe, who has sought to preserve the family’s privacy. Our position is that victims and survivors should be able to access federal agency records of crimes they experienced or reported, as is common at the state level, so they can advocate for health and trauma care and legal protections for their children and themselves.”

A spokesperson for the FBI stated that agency policy “prohibits comment on pending litigation.”

Yeah, so… Team Pitt’s argument is that after Angelina successfully got a compromised divorce judge thrown off the case and won her California Supreme Court appeal to get the judge’s f–ked up custodial ruling overturned, that now she’s just looking for little morsels of damaging information to “hurt” Brad? Out of spite! Isn’t it more likely – and I’m just spitballing here – that Angelina has fought really hard for her children and their rights for the past six years because the domestic abuse on a private plane was the final f–king straw? That moment changed everything for Angelina – she filed for divorce, hired lawyers, and spent years working with therapists and trying to help the children process what happened. She’s truly suing the FBI to find out why Brad wasn’t arrested and charged with child abuse and felony assault. She is looking for justice for her kids.

    It will surprise everyone when Jane Doe turns out to be one of the kids, who don’t get why their father got to skip out on charges for a public display of abuse. I’m sure, though, that many of the aging HW bros who wanted Will Smith “dragged out” of the Oscars will agree that Jolie is “spiteful”. Because violence is, to some stupid people, only okay when you’re targeting women and children.

  2. Taylor Brown says:

    His victim narrative contuines. If the case was closed because nothing happened then he has nothing to worry about. Of course, there not being enough evidence for charges to be filed doesn’t equivalent to nothing happening. She has every right to request documents and has every right to tall about her experiences. Many of the advocates she works with does.

  3. Chaine says:

    I’m guessing the fbi closed the investigation because they decided “it was a private family matter” and that the fbi only deals with “important” airplane assaults, like terrorism.

  4. AC says:

    It’s not a family private matter when you attack your wife and children violently! Plus we know that they fight terrorism and if they can’t handle more than one thing at a time, we are in trouble! I don’t know why I think Jan Doe is Zahara. I think something happened and bruises couldn’t be seen on darker skin also why we always saw her work with her mother and even going to DC each time. Either way, he’s ridiculous and he needs to be held accountable. It’s telling that those same people who claim to be traumatized by Will Smith, prefer to believe BP. The fact that they think it’s pettiness that he assaulted his family is very telling, but it’s still the Hollywood morals. He just does not want this to come out and tarnish his image.

    • Alycea says:

      The academy is fine with violent crimes crimes as long as its behind close doors. As Brad said when asked about Maddox “let’s keep it indoors.”

      They fail to understand no one has to stay silent anymore.

  5. HeyKay says:

    I hope one of the kids comes out with a book one day.
    The paps and tabloids have been following all of them most of their lives.
    I can not imagine how that must be growing up. No thank you, I’m fine being a private person.

    Brad Pitt is looking pretty shady to me. Still.

  6. Hang on says:

    Hang on, why do people think it’s one of the kids? The filing refers to her ex husband and kids?

    But as always this man never fails to disappoint in providing to be a world class ahole.

    However, whenever things are starting to get bad for him, he starts desperate smear campaigns. I see this as him panicking. But he’s likely going to get really nasty as a result.

  7. Mememe says:

    I know the prevailing wisdom on CB is that Brad is a monster. He might be. I honestly think it’s hard to know given everything we hear is skewed by the press and publicists. Yes, there was a violent outburst on the plane. Was it evidence of systemic abuse or a teenage boy and his kind-of dad losing their respective tempers? I’m not suggesting child abuse is ever ok but there’s a difference between pushing a teenager who’s in your face (when you are drunk – again, not a good state of being around young children)and routinely beating and physically abusing said teenager and your other kids.
    It wouldn’t surprise me if this were one of the children wanting impartial information re: what happened. Some of the kids were quite young and group-think re: what actually happened may have taken over the narrative. When with Angelina, they’re getting her side/Maddox’s side. When with Brad, they’re getting his side. Perhaps with the help of a good therapist this is a teenager wanting to make up their own mind.

    • Coco says:

      ( Was it evidence of systemic abuse or a teenage boy and his kind-of dad losing their respective tempers?) WHAT

      I hate when people saw I’m not making excuse while actually then try to make an excuse.

      All of the kids were on the plane and witnessed what happened so what are you going on about.

      • Alycea says:

        One violent outburst is enough. The filing suggested multiple kids were involved in both the physical and verbal attack as well.

    • crogirl says:

      “a teenage boy and his kind-of dad”

      WTF does that mean?

      • sunhine says:

        The discrimination against adopted children always pops out. It’s absolutely disgusting.

        Brad was there since he was a child and legally adopted him. Brad is father.

      • NotSoSocialB says:

        I think this type of comment probably came up from Bshitt on the plane about the older kids. I wouldn’t put it past him AT ALL.

    • AC says:

      But you are ok with what he did because it was Angelina Jolie. You, like his fans, have a high opinion of him, even though he said that he was the reason his relationship ended because of his drinking problem. I also bet you think that he should go back to Jen. This is the problem; when people say they are abused, we don’t listen and say, “we don’t believe you.” No one on CB said he was a monster; those are your words. People don’t like abuse, and those are two separate things. I dislike it when people say, “I am not making an excuse,” because that’s exactly what’s happening. You say child abuse is not ok, but your entire statement suggests that you think it’s ok. Who cares if it was a teenager and drunk hitting him? You think it’s ok, and I beg to differ.

    • NotSoSocialB says:

      I’m sorry to tell you this, but it’s a really bad take and smacks of misogyny at its core. Peel away the comments about kid curiosity and you’re still damning the mother, the VICTIM. It’s so wrong.

    • huh says:

      His kind of dad?! that man adopted all 3 kids, he IS the dad. Just say you don’t see at as abuse because you don’t care about adopted kids and don’t give them the same respect and importance as you would to a biological child.

  8. Case says:

    His arrogance and petulance throughout this entire ordeal is stunning to me. I’m so sorry that Angelina and her kids have to keep dealing with his nonsense.

  9. Elsa says:

    Also, She KNOWS what happened. She was there! So she isn’t fishing but looking for official evidence to finally back her up. My thoughts anyway.

    • TeamMeg says:

      AJ may be looking for evidence as to why FBI dismissed the case. Something unkosher could have occurred during the investigation.

      Angie knows what precipitated her leaving—so why was the case dismissed so quickly?

      Presumably, Brad knows what happened, too, no matter how drunk he was on the plane (or any other time). Therefore, I find him a total idiot for choosing to fight Angelina on any aspect of the divorce settlement. Yes, he’s BRAD PITT, megastar. But still, to use his own GQ-interview word, what “hubris”! No one is untouchable. Does he have any idea who he is dealing with? A mama bear does not back down.

      • NotSoSocialB says:

        We *know* the FBI has bowed to pressure on the Kavanaugh investigation and who knows what else. It’s not impossible to think it could have happened here, as well.

  10. Adorable says:

    I’m truly curious as to why,Brad has been egging Angelina on..Did he really think she’d roll over & play dead?Its just so fascinating to me.

  11. Zut Alors says:

    Angelina wanted to seal this request and the Judge declined to do so. She wasn’t looking for this to be put out in the public sphere.

  12. AD says:

    Did Somebody do a detective job for Jane Doe that is worth digging deeper? Was she informed of FBI malpractices during their case investigation! Why is Brad Pitt bothered about Jane Doe’s activities not his business he should just relax & wait of the outcome.

  13. Isabella says:

    Could it be that Brad is still trying to get custody of the younger kids? Maybe she needs the ammunition? I have no idea how these things work.

    • Coco says:

      No first he doesn’t want the kids nor dose he care about them outside of his public image and secondly he would have went all over the media that he wants full custody.

    • Coco says:

      No if he was he would have posted all over the media. Not to mention he dose not what them or care about them outside his public image.

    • sunhine says:

      i dont think so. In the decision it said she wanted it for the therapists and it sounds like for her advocacy work. That’s why his team said she’s going to make the information public. That’s why his team is freaking out in my opinion
