As their messy divorce battle continues, we reported last week that Angelina Jolie has accused her ex-husband Brad Pitt of domestic violence. According to a source close to Pitt, the allegations made by Jolie have left him “heartbroken.”
Jolie filed court papers last week showing that she and her six children, whom she shares with Pitt, are willing to testify and provide “evidence and authority in support” of her allegations against the actor.
“Brad is devastated that Angelina Jolie has chosen that path. After their marriage, there’s a lot of emotion left,” a source close to Pitt told Page Six.

“He has accepted responsibility for his actions and admitted to his previous problems; he has also stopped drinking.”
“The marriage was very passionate and toxic at times, and they had fights like all couples, but they also shared many good times together,” the source continued. “During their time together, he talked about his alcohol and drug problems.”
Pitt has never been charged with or jailed for domestic violence. While he and his family were involved in a highly publicized incident aboard a private jet, he was never charged.
“Brad and his team have never targeted Angelina Jolie. But his camp believes the leak was timed to sway public opinion ahead of their trial’s conclusion,” the source said. “Brad feels like he’s becoming increasingly estranged from his children, and he’s heartbroken.”
Pitt and Jolie divorced in 2016, and the couple has been fighting over custody of their six children ever since. Both the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Child and Family Services cleared Pitt of child abuse allegations in 2016. Jolie expressed her relief at the conclusion of both investigations at the time.
“The DCFS’ job is to ensure that the children are safe and secure,” she said in a statement released through a spokesperson. “As we stated earlier this week, childcare professionals advocated for a legal agreement that was in the best interests of the children and was accepted and signed by both parties.”
“Angelina stated from the start that she felt compelled to act for the family’s health, and she is relieved that after their 8-week involvement, the DCFS is now satisfied that safeguards have been put in place that will allow the children to heal,” her statement continued.
