For a while, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were one of Hollywood’s golden couples. Although their relationship was formed under somewhat salacious circumstances, audiences can rarely resist the charms of two incredibly beautiful, talented, and successful people getting married, especially when their names form a decent portmanteau. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s divorce was finalized in 2019, but like so many acrimonious splits, it looks like things aren’t completely over. According to various reports, it is alleged that Angelina Jolie at some point attempted to have Brad Pitt arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
It gets a bit tricky here, so bear with us. Per Politico, it was reported in April that U.S. District Court Chief Judge Beryl Howell refused to seal a freedom of information law by an anonymous woman, saying anonymity was enough to protect privacy. complainant’s children. The unnamed woman (or ‘Jane Doe’) had invoked FOIA to find out why the FBI had closed an investigation into allegations that Jane Doe’s husband had ‘physically and verbally abused’ her and their children during a private plane trip several years earlier. . Essentially, the FBI had closed the investigation without arrest or explanation, and Jane Doe wanted to know why.
According to The Puck, it was speculated that Jane Doe was Angelina Jolie alleging the assault of Brad Pitt. The timeline matched a high-profile altercation on a private plane, in which it was claimed that Brad Pitt had become very drunk. Accounts of the chaotic journey differ greatly between legal portrayals of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, but it’s certain the actress filed for divorce soon after. According to these reports, it appears that there were efforts to have Brad Pitt investigated and potentially arrested for his actions on the plane. However, that didn’t happen and if these claims are true, Angelina Jolie wants to know why.
Since their divorce in 2019, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have continued to capture the public’s attention. Angelina Jolie starred in the sequel to her revisionist Disney villain film, Maleficent, alongside Michelle Pfeiffer, Elle Fanning and Juno Temple. Last year she also starred in one of the most controversial films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Eternals; despite being directed by Oscar winner Chloe Zhoe, the film was a box office disappointment and is one of the lowest-rated MCU projects on Rotten Tomatoes.
After his divorce from Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt publicly gave up alcohol (which also lent some credibility in the public eye to allegations of his drinking behavior). He won an Oscar for his performance in Quentin Tarantino Once upon a time in Hollywood and would star in the science fiction film Ad Astra. Most recently, he appeared in a well-received cameo role in The lost city alongside Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum, followed by a starring role in the ensemble action comedy film High-speed train.
