It is being reported that Angelina Jolie was the “Jane Doe” who sued the FBI under the Freedom of Information Act, questioning why an investigation into her then-husband Brad Pitt was closed after allegations of physical and verbal assault in 2016.
According to Puck News, Jolie was the plaintiff in the suit. The suit, per the report, demanded that the bureau turn over documents related to an investigation into Pitt, after Jolie alleged that he had “physically and verbally assaulted” her and their children while traveling on a private plane “several years ago.”
Puck News reports a statement of probable cause was drafted and given to the chief of the Criminal Division of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles, before the FBI announced that Pitt would not be charged with assault.
Allegations in the statement was the accusation that Pitt was drinking and had taken Jolie to the back of the plane, grabbed her shoulders and shook her while yelling, “You’re (expletive) up this family.”
“Later, during this same flight, another physical altercation allegedly took place, and Jolie said she sustained injuries; she gave the agent a photo of her elbow in an attempt to corroborate this,” Puck reports. “At another point, Jolie says Pitt poured beer on her.”
