“Eternals” actress Angelina Jolie claimed her ex-husband Brad Pitt made her feel “like a hostage” during the infamous 2016 flight that ended their two year marriage.
People obtained the FBI report about their relationship ending fight the celebrity couple had during a private flight they took with their six children from France to California on Sept. 14. Jolie told investigators that drunken Pitt was “becoming a monster” and made her “feel like a hostage” during their fight in the plane bathroom.
After the “Bullet Train” star “consumed about two or three drinks,” which “was not a lot of alcohol” for someone who could admittedly “drink a Russian under the table with his own vodka,” he yelled at Jolie and grabbed her head and shook it.
He punched “the ceiling of the plane approximately four times,” before pushing “her into the bathroom wall” and yelling loud enough that the children could hear. When one called through the door to see if she was okay, Pitt replied, “No, she’s not OK. She’s ruining this family. She’s crazy.”
When an unidentified child yelled that he was a “pr–k,” Jolie sustained injuries to her elbow and back as she physically restrained the actor. She also said that the children, who were all minors at the time, were “shell-shocked” after he “mimicked the behavior of a monster and screamed at them.”
The “Maleficent” star also claimed that Pitt poured a beer on her while she tried to sleep and caused $25,000 in damages to the plane from spilling red wine. She filed for divorce days later, and neither the FBI or DCFS filed charges against the “Fight Club” star.
Jolie filed a lawsuit under the Freedom of Information Act earlier this year for the release of the heavily redacted report; she and Pitt are still in an ongoing custody war for their minor children.
Pitt made headlines on Thursday for settling his Make It Right Foundation’s lawsuit with residents of the third-rate homes they built in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina. Environmental non-profit Global Green agreed to fund the $20.5 million in damages to repair the homes.
“I am incredibly grateful for Global Green’s willingness to step up and provide this important support for the Lower Ninth families,” Pitt said on Thursday.
