As you’ve no doubt heard by now, Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt last month.
The actress’ abrupt decision to end her marriage came after an incident aboard a private jet, during which Pitt was involved in an altercation with 15-year-old son Maddox.
It remains unclear what exactly took place aboard the aircraft, but it was bad enough that it resulted in Pitt being investigated for child abuse.
As of now, Jolie has sole physical custody of the kids, and Brad is allowed only supervised visits.
That may soon change, however, as at least one former associate of the couple’s has come forward to reveal that he never witnessed any abusive behavior on Brad’s part, but did overhear Angie issuing threats of violence.
An unnamed former bodyguard claims that he once heard Angelina threaten to “beat [Brad] to death” during a particularly heated argument.
He adds, however, that he never saw her become physically abusive, and has no reason to believe that she ever did.
It’s also important to note that the bodyguard doesn’t claim that Angelina ever made any threats to the children.
If this is the sort of character testimony that Brad is relying on for his upcoming custody battle, he may be in trouble.
Of course, several media outlets have reported in recent weeks that the Department of Child and Family Services investigation into Brad’s behavior has been expanded to include Angelina.
It’s unclear, however, if the department is investigating claims against Angelina, or attempting to determine if she was abused by Brad.
Last week, Jolie was interrogated by the FBI for several hours, but it is not believed that there is any reason for her to face criminal charges.
So basically, we don’t know much more about this case than when we first found out about it six weeks ago.
Brad’s team has successfully muddied the waters, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that he’s blameless of that Jolie is guilty.
After all, he’s hired some of the best-known lawyers in Hollywood, and those folks pull in eight figures for a reason.
