Brad Pitt actor calls Angelina Jolie’s latest 2016 plane crash allegations ‘completely untrue’



CNN

A counter-suit filed by actress Angelina Jolie on Tuesday against ex-husband Brad Pitt includes more information about an alleged physical altercation between the former couple that took place in plane in 2016.

In a statement to CNN, a representative of Pitt called the latest allegations “completely untrue.”

Jolie and Pitt compete to sell Jolie her stake in the joint French winery Château Miraval. Jolie sold half of her winery in 2021 to Tenute del Mondo, a subsidiary of the Stoli Group, controlled by Russian oligarch Yuri Scheffler.

Pitt sued Jolie in February, claiming that he and Jolie had an agreement that neither would sell without the consent of the other.

Jolie claims in her counterclaim that there was never any such agreement and that she sold her share of the winery in an effort to gain “financial independence” from Pete and “to have some form of peace and an end to this painful and traumatic separation of who she and their children’s lives”.

In court documents obtained by CNN, Jolie also shares more details about an alleged incident on a private jet on September 14, 2016, five days before she filed for divorce.

In a section of Jolie’s counterclaim titled “Why Jolie and Pitt broke up,” the document claims that before arriving at the airport, Pitt got into an argument with one of their six children, who at the time were between the ages of 8 and 15 and goes on record to allege that Jolie “What’s wrong?” asked Pete on the plane. and that Pete continued to verbally attack her and then after an hour and a half “pulled” her into the bathroom, “he grabbed Julie by the head and shook her, then grabbed her shoulders and shook her again before pushing her against the bathroom wall.”

The prosecution also alleges that “Pete strangled one of the children and hit another in the face. Some of the children pleaded with Pete to stop. They were all afraid. Many were crying.”

In a statement provided to CNN on Tuesday, a representative of Pete said: “(Jolie)’s story continues to evolve each time she tells it with new, unsubstantiated allegations. Brad has accepted responsibility for what he did but will not do anything he didn’t do. These new allegations are wholly untrue. “.

CNN previously reported some of these details from a heavily redacted FBI report in August.

Pete was not arrested or charged in connection with the incident after the FBI completed its investigation in 2016.

“In response to the allegations made after a flight within the jurisdiction of United States Private Jets that landed in Los Angeles with Mr. Brad Pitt and his children on board, the FBI has conducted a review of the circumstances and will not continue to investigate,” FBI spokeswoman Laura Emilyer said in a statement to CNN. At that time, “no charges were brought in this regard.”

All parties have had this information for nearly six years and have used it in previous legal proceedings. “There is nothing new here and it serves no purpose other than as a media ploy designed to inflict pain,” a source close to Pitt said of the August report.

CNN has contacted Jolie’s representatives regarding the latest court filing, which states that during the plane incident, Pitt allegedly “rushed toward his child and Jolie took him from behind to stop him. To get Jolie off his back, Pitt threw himself backwards into the plane seats resulting in injury.” Julie’s back and her elbow.”

The court documents also claim that the children “rushed and all bravely tried to protect each other” and that Jolie and the children “sat silently under the blankets. No one dared to go to the bathroom.”

For this reason, legal documents state that Jolie and her six children were unable to return to Chateau Miraval due to “the pain that Pete inflicted on the family that day”.

Many of the details in Jolie’s reflective suit mirror those filed in a countersuit filed last month by Nouvel LLC, Jolie’s former company.

In his earlier claim, Pitt claimed that Jolie “did nothing to drive (the growth)” of the business, which he turned into a “million dollar international success story.”

In the counterclaim, Nouvel disputed this, saying, “Pitt refused to give Jolie or Nouvel equal access to the records of Château Miraval or an equal voice over management,” effectively “holding the most significant portion of her net worth hostage.”

The countersuit Jolie wore adds that “like other couples,” “the two divided their responsibilities and generally divided the costs.”

Jolie has made her career as an actress and director subordinate to her primary responsibility of raising children. She also oversaw the day-to-day management of the Jolie-Pitt Foundation, to which she contributed not only large amounts of time but also large sums of cash (more than double what Pitt contributed), The document states. “Pitt continued his career in Hollywood and took primary responsibility for the mansion’s renovation.”

She also alleges that she repeatedly tried to sell her stake in the winery to Pitt, as recently as last year and that Pitt would have bought her stake for $54.5 million in February, but Pitt “asked” her to sign a broad non-derogation clause “that would prevent Jolie from discussing any personal behavior of Pete towards her or her family outside of court,” including allegations of abuse from the 2016 incident.

Jolie claims she refused to sign the clause, calling it “arbitrary and controlling for the deal.”

The counterclaim asks the court to declare Jolie sold her final stake so that the actress can “move out of the winery and mansion.”
