Brad Pitt is under investigation for child abuse, according to multiple reports.
People magazine reports that he allegedly got “verbally abusive” and “physical” with one of his children with Angelina Jolie on the couple’s private plane in the presence of their other kids.
The Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services is investigating the incident on the tarmac, People says.
TMZ.com first reported news of the investigation.
However, the LAPD told USA Today on Thursday that it is not investigating the incident, as some outlets first reported. “LAPD is not handling any report or allegations into child abuse against Brad Pitt,” according to a statement read by spokeswoman Officer Jenny Houser.
USA Today also reported that the Department of Children and Family Services says by law it cannot confirm or deny investigations, according to a statement from spokesman Armand Montiel.
On Tuesday, Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt, asking for sole custody of their six children.
