Brad Pitt Investigation Extended
An investigation into Brad Pitt’s parenting skills has been extended by officials at California’s Department of Child and Family Services.
The voluntary “safety plan” was implemented last month, shortly after Pitt’s wife Angelina Jolie filed for divorce amid reports the actor had been abusive on a family plane ride.
It was set to expire on October 20, but it has been extended, according to multiple sources.
Friends and family of the estranged couple, as well as staff members, are being interviewed by DCFS experts as part of the ongoing investigation.
Jolie and Pitt agreed to a temporary custody deal last month after the DCFS officials made their recommendations. The so-called “safety plan” is standard practice in any ongoing child welfare investigation. The former couple also volunteered to participate in individual counseling.
Meanwhile, Jolie was visited by two FBI agents at her home in Malibu, California, last week to follow up on an incident that occurred on a private jet between Pitt and his 15-year-old son, Maddox, on September 14.
Jolie filed for divorce from her husband five days later, citing irreconcilable differences and requesting physical custody of the couple’s six kids.
