According to the Star, in the latest filing, Jolie’s lawyers alleged Pitt grabbed the actress by the head and shook her and then grabbed her shoulders and shook her again before pushing her into the bathroom wall during a fight from the couple’s Chateau Miravan winery in France.

“Pitt insulted Jolie, when one of the kids defended Jolie, the actor lunged at his own child and Jolie grabbed him from behind to stop him, Pitt then threw himself back into the airplane’s seats injuring Jolie’s back and elbow.”

“The children rushed in and all bravely tried to protect each other. Before it was over, Pitt choked one of the children and struck another in the face. Some of the children pleaded with Pitt to stop. They were all frightened. Many were crying,” the suit continued.

According to a report in USA Today, the allegations of abuse became public shortly after the flight, but details, till now, were vague and kept sealed in divorce documents.

Investigations by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services found no action against Pitt necessary. Pitt has never been charged in relation to the alleged plane incident.
