American actor and director
Apparently, Angelina Jolie has been identified as the “Jane Doe” who is suing the FBI under the Freedom of Information Act, wondering why an investigation into her then-husband Brad Pitt was closed following allegations of physical assault and speech in 2016.
According to Eriq Gardner of Puck News, Jolie is in fact the unnamed actor in the lawsuit, which has long been speculated about, given the timeline and events depicted. The suit required the office to turn over documents related to an investigation into Pitt after Jolie alleged he “physically and verbally assaulted” her and her children while traveling on a private plane “several years ago.”
It was also reported that, in a recent filing update, a probable cause statement was drafted and delivered to the chief of the criminal division of the US Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles, before the FBI announced that Pitt would not be charged with assault.
Pitt denied the allegations of physical abuse
Among the allegations previously detailed in the agent’s statement was the allegation that Pitt was drinking and leading Jolie to the back of the plane, he grabbed her by the shoulders and shook her as she yelled, “You’re fucking this family.” .
“Later, during this same flight, another physical altercation would occur and Jolie said that she sustained injuries; she gave the agent a photo of her elbow in an attempt to corroborate this, “according to Puck. At another point, Jolie says that Pitt spilled beer on her.”
Pitt denied the allegations of physical abuse in subsequent years, and charges were never filed. He and Jolie divorced shortly after the alleged plane crash.
Representatives for Jolie and the FBI did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.
