Brad Pitt got into an argument with his son Maddox last week on the family’s flight home from France according to a source close to the actor and his estranged wife Angelina Jolie, which led to her decision to file for divorce.

The actor and his 15-year-old son were at odds for unknown reasons, but Pitt did not touch the teenager at any time claims the source.

The source went on to say that allegations of abuse against the actor, both verbal and physical, have been ‘exaggerated or fabricated’.

Pitt is now being investigated by the FBI and social services in Los Angeles.

A statement from the FBI said: ‘In response to your inquiry regarding allegations within the special aircraft jurisdiction of the United States; specifically, an aircraft carrying Mr. Brad Pitt and his children, the FBI is continuing to gather facts and will evaluate whether an investigation at the federal level will be pursued.’ 

On Thursday morning, a police car was seen arriving at the Jolie-Pitt compound in the Hollywood Hills, where Pitt is believed to be staying while Jolie and the children are at a Malibu rental home.

The family is said to have been on a flight home from France when he allegedly became ‘wasted’ and started ‘screaming’ before continuing the ‘rant’ on the tarmac when the plane landed, trying to leave the scene in a fuel truck.

TMZ  was the first to report that this alleged episode prompted Jolie to split from the 52-year-old the next day and then file for divorce.

The FBI is investigating the incident because it allegedly happened mid-air. An LAPD spokesperson told Fox News that because the incident allegedly happened on an airplane, the investigation is out of their jurisdiction.

US Weekly is reporting that the anonymous call came from someone on the plane as it headed towards Los Angeles, which led to members of DCFS meeting the family on the tarmac and questioning them on the scene.

The LA County Department of Children and Family Services told KTLA reporter and anchor Wendy Burch there is an investigation into child abuse claims, but a spokesman later told DailyMail.com they have strict laws that don’t allow them to confirm or deny the subjects of investigations.

    I believe that Pitt, should be allowed to exercise whatever he believes is prudent as a father. My father used to throw steel toe work boots at me, that never missed. Pitt, rather than argue, in my opinion, should simply have laid down the law, and people on the flight, should have mind their own business.
