Brad Pitt Not Being Investigated For Child Abuse

The LAPD is dispelling rumors that Brad Pitt is being investigated for child abuse.

“We have no criminal investigation that we are actively pursuing,” Sgt. Barry Montgomery, of the LAPD, told The Hollywood Reporter. “To my knowledge, [Pitt talking to police] never happened. And right now, that is where our office is. We are not investigating any case, nor do we have any allegations against Mr. Pitt. We understand how rumors get spun up and hopefully we can put a few of them to rest. We have no investigation involving Mr. Pitt.”

In case you missed it, Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad earlier this week, sending the internet into a downward spiral and scrambling for answers.

TMZ published a report claiming the Fury actor was being investigated by the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services and LAPD for child abuse after he allegedly got drunk while traveling on the family’s private jet and got verbal and physical with his children.

A source told TMZ, “He takes the matter very seriously and says he did not commit any abuse of his children,” adding, “It’s unfortunate that people involved are continuing to present him in the worst possible light.”
