Even with Pretty People, divorce proceedings often turn ugly.

Brad Pitt is now reportedly being investigated for him hitting his fifteen-year-old son while aboard the family’s private jet. Pitt’s famous wife, Angelina Jolie, filed for a divorce shortly after the incident took place. They have been together for quite some time but have only been married for two years.

Mr. Pitt is trying to get joint physical custody of their six children together. Ms. Jolie stated that their problems were “irreconcilable differences” in filing for divorce on the 19th of September.

The LA Department of Children and Family Services said the agency could not confirm it investigated Pitt. People Magazine cited an anonymous source close to the family which claimed the DCFS investigation was real and ongoing.

While Pitt and Jolie were shooting for the movie Mr. and Mrs. Smith in 2005 they grew very close, beginning a love affair that led to a marriage nine years later.

It was Pitt’s second marriage after Friends star Jennifer Aniston, and Jolie’s third marriage after Billy Bob Thorton and Johnny Lee Miller.

The couple have two biological children together, Shiloh and twins Knox and Vivienne, plus they have three adopted children, Maddox, Pax, and Zahara. So therefore they have six children total.  Maddox is the fifteen-year-old that may have triggered the DCFS complaint, which People characterized as an argument about how best to discipline the children.

When Pitt was 51 and Jolie was 41, they got married at a private wedding in France, since they had been together so long they had to make it special. All of the children were the ring bearers for the day and helped display Jolie’s beautiful dress.

It is entirely possible that a simple family argument is being used as “leverage” in the divorce case, to make Pitt look bad in the custody battle.
