Brad Pitt, accused of child abuse, is under investigation


Brad Pitt is being investigated after being accused of verbal and physical abuse against his children.

Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services spokesman Armand Montiel told media by law the agency cannot confirm or deny investigations.

But a source close to Pitt, who was not authorized to speak publicly, told media that Pitt is taking this matter “very seriously and is fully cooperating.”

“The claims are greatly exaggerated or fabricated,” the source said. “But he’ll always do whatever is best for his kids. Despite being on the receiving end of an onslaught of allegations, he remains focused on doing whatever is best for the children.”
