In a statement to CNN, reps for the actor say he takes responsibility for mistakes, but ‘not for things he didn’t do’
Brad Pitt has spoken out for the first time about the allegations of assault made by his ex-wife, Angelina Jolie. In a statement sent to US broadcaster CNN, the actor called the allegations “completely false”.
Angelina told the FBI that she was physically and verbally assaulted by her then-husband during an argument on a private plane in September 2016.
In documents obtained by the American press this Tuesday (4), the actress details the alleged attacks. Pitt would have grabbed her shoulders and pushed her against the bathroom wall, in addition to having assaulted two of her children.
The actor’s reps have denied the allegations. “(Jolie’s) story continues to evolve each time she recounts it with new and unsubstantiated allegations. Brad takes responsibility for what he did, but not for things he didn’t do. These new allegations are completely false,” the statement reads.
Jolie started legal proceedings for divorce a few days after the flight on which the assaults allegedly took place. At the time, the situation was investigated by the FBI and Pitt was not arrested or charged over the incident.
