The 41-year-old actress applied to legally end her two-year marriage to the 52-year-old actor earlier this week, reportedly due to concerns over the way he parented their six children and an "incident" involving their oldest son Maddox, 15, on a private jet.
An anonymous individual tipped the LAPD and DCFS when the plane landed on Wednesday where Pitt was reported to be intoxicated and tried to run away from the scene using a fuel truck.
A source close to the actor said to Page Six, "He was never physically abusive to her or the kids".
We may now know the reason behind Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's split.
And the Public Information Officer for the LAPD said: "We don't have anything on Brad Pitt right now".
She is said to have made a decision to end their marriage because she was "extremely upset" with the way the "Moneyball" star has been parenting the kids and so chose to seek joint legal custody, but not joint physical custody.
And while the divorce did not come as a surprise to Pitt, he was thrown off by the time according to those close to the actor.
Pitt and Cotillard star together in the upcoming war drama Allied.
Do you think Brad Pitt deserves to have joint physical custody of his children with ex-wife Angelina Jolie?
'I am not used to commenting on things like this nor taking them seriously, ' she continued, 'but as this situation is spiraling and affecting people I love, I have to speak up'.
He said in a statement: "I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the wellbeing of our kids". A source told the Sun they were brought in to help with her campaign work and speech writing and urged Pitt to reduce the couple's support staff. It has been speculated that this caused the couple to separate the very next day and file for a divorce on Monday.
Fellow A-lister George Clooney, who is a good friend of Pitt's, found out when a CNN reporter told him during an interview outside the United Nations, where Clooney was attending a meeting on the refugee crisis with President Obama.
