Things Just Got Messy: False Child Abuse Allegations Surrounding Brad Pitt

The Jolie-Pitt separation just got messy.

Earlier, TMZ reported that Brad Pitt is currently under investigation by the LAPD and LA County Department of Children and Family services for allegedly getting verbally and physically abusive with his children. This is apparently what triggered the divorce between the two A-List celebrities.

TMZ alleged that the situation in question happened last week when the whole family was on a flight on their private jet. Pitt allegedly got extremely intoxicated and completely lost his temper. TMZ said according to sources on the plane, Pitt started screaming and getting physical with his children, and continued his erratic behavior after landing on the tarmac.

However, the LAPD has confirmed to The Guardian that these rumors were entirely false and that NO claims were made against him regarding child abuse.

Sergeant Barry Montgomery of the LAPD says, "We understand how rumors get spun up and hopefully we can put a few of them to rest. We have no criminal investigation that we are actively pursuing."

In case you were wondering just how bad Hollywood breakups can be, here is your answer.
