Brad Pitt calls out ‘personal attack’ after Angelina Jolie accuses him of abuse

Brad Pitt is addressing allegations of abuse recently brought up by his ex-wife, Angelina Jolie. Jolie filed a response to the Bullet Train star's lawsuit over their once-shared winery, alleging in a cross complaint that Pitt – who is dad to their kids Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh and twins Vivienne and Knox – "choked one of the children and struck another in the face" during an international flight in 2016. The alleged incident led the Los Angeles Department of Child and Family Services and FBI the launch their own investigations, though both cases has since been closed without any charges filed against Pitt. Now, the actor is responding to the claims brought forth by Jolie's new legal filing. His attorney, Anne Kiley, said in a statement, "Brad has owned everything he's responsible for from day one – unlike the other side but he's not going to own anything he didn't do. He has been on the receiving end of every type of personal attack and misrepresentation." The former couple were married for almost five years until 2019, when they were declared legally single amid their divorce proceedings.
