The post Angelina Jolie sued the FBI over why Brad Pitt wasn’t arrested for domestic violence appeared first on Consequence.
Angelina Jolie has been revealed as the Jane Doe behind an anonymous lawsuit under the Freedom of Information Act demanding the FBI provide information on why they didn’t arrest Brad Pitt after he allegedly “physically and verbally assaulted” her and their children while traveling on a private plane “several years ago,” reports Puck News. The FBI investigated the case and declined to press charges.
The FOIA request was first noted in a short Politico Playbook article last April. The article reported that Jane Doe retained an exceptionally famous and expensive attorney, and that some of the FOIA allegations were followed by statements Jolie made about her ex-husband Brad Pitt, whom she asked about. divorce in 2016.
Puck News has now confirmed that Jolie has filed a lawsuit, and she did so to find out why Pitt hasn’t been arrested. A week ago, on August 9, Jolie amended the complaint with new information she learned from a FOIA last year. In September 2016, the investigating officer “prepared a probable cause statement” and presented it to an assistant U.S. attorney in Los Angeles. But after meeting this lawyer, the FBI decides not to press charges. Now Jolie wants to know why.
She claimed that Pitt “physically and verbally abused her” and their children. Apparently, a drunk Pitt took her to the back of the vehicle and started shaking her by the shoulders, yelling, “You’re fucking this family!”
During the same flight, Jolie claimed to have been injured in another physical altercation and she provided evidence in the form of a photo of her elbow. She also alleged that Pitt threw his beer at her.
Jolie’s Amended Lawsuit is now seeking documents related to that meeting between the Assistant US Attorney and the FBI. She demands “unredacted records and corroborating evidence,” which she says the FBI still has.
Six years after their split, Pitt and Jolie’s divorce remains acrimonious. Earlier this year, Pitt sued Jolie for selling his stake in their co-owned winery to a Russian oligarch.
