Brad Pitt’s career is unlikely to be affected by his ex-wife Angelina Jolie’s allegations that he was abusive to her and their children during a flight in 2016.
In court records first obtained by The New York Times Earlier this month, the malicious Actress, 47, claimed the fast train The 58-year-old star was “physically and emotionally abusive” during the long journey from Paris to Los Angeles.
Jolie claimed Pitt choked one of the children and punched another in the face.
The lawsuit, which arose from an ongoing court case with Château Miraval, the French winery the exes once owned together, further alleges that he doused Jolie and the children in beer and red wine. Days later, she filed for divorce.
The couple who first met on the set of in 2003 Mr & Mrs Smith, wed in August 2014 at Chateau Miraval. They share six children: Maddox, 21, Pax, 18, Zahara, 17, Shiloh, 16, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 14.
Pitt was later investigated by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services for child molestation following the incident but was acquitted in November 2016.
Pitt has also denied the allegations.
“Brad has heard everything he is responsible for from day one – unlike the other side – but he will not own anything he has not done,” his attorney Anne Kiley said in a statement.
“He was the target of every kind of personal attack and misrepresentation. Fortunately, the various authorities that the other side have tried to use against him over the past six years have made their own independent decisions. Brad will continue to respond in court as he has consistently done.”
Reputation expert Eric Schiffer, chairman of Los Angeles-based firm Reputation Management Consultants, said news week that the allegations against Pitt, while “serious” and “damaging,” have “no chance of materially destroying Brad’s chances of being hired by Hollywood.”
Said Schiffer, “Brad Pitt has built a unique body of work over the past 30 years and the overwhelming choice of roles has been strategic and helped create a diverse foundation for his enduring fame.
“Pitt’s roles, like those of a Nazi killer (Inglourious Basterds) and a charismatic stuntman (Once upon a time… in Hollywood) diversified his brand and built a wider fan base beyond some of his earlier films.”
Recently, Pitt has been criticized on social media for the films he has produced.
Twitter users pointed out that the Oklahoma native is a recognized producer of films like Blond and she saidFilms dealing with issues of sexual and social degradation of women by powerful men.
“Wait, Brad Pitt is producing the MeToo movie?” one person wrote earlier this month. “It’s like Hollywood is fooling us with that.”
“Ew the fact that he produced Blond‘ added another.
However, others pointed out that “allegations don’t always mean guilty…” a third said, while a fourth agreed: “Keyword: allegations.”
Pitt has not commented on the backlash.
