FBI interviews Angelina Jolie and kids over alleged plane row

Two FBI agents quiz actress over mid-air incident between Brad Pitt and Maddox

| Updated:

Angelina Jolie and her kids have been interviewed by the FBI – to find out exactly what went down between Brad Pitt and eldest son Maddox.

Two FBI agents showed up at the actress’s Malibu home and spent three hours quizzing the family, according to TMZ.

They wanted to know exactly what happened on the family’s last plane journey together last month, during which Pitt, 52, allegedly got verbally and physically abusive with adopted son Maddox, 15.

Sources claim the FBI wanted Jolie, 41, and the kids to take them step by step through the incident, which is believed to have sparked the couple’s split,

The FBI wanted to pin down exactly where the plane was at the time of the alleged row to determine if it was in US airspace at the time.

It is thought they were on a fact-finding mission to see whether there is enough evidence to launch an official investigation.

The LA Department of Children and Family Services has already opened its own investigation into the incident.

Meanwhile reports claim the actor had a tearful reunion with several of the kids – but not Maddox.

A source told Us Weekly magazine that Pitt has met with several of the kids – but Maddox chose to stay with his mother.

The couple, who married in 2014,  haven’t had any contact with each other since the split – opting to have their custody battle and divorce hashed out by members of their teams, according to People.

“Brad and Angie haven’t had any contact, and it’s all being worked out via their teams,” a source told the magazine. “It’s just a sad situation.”

Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt five days after the plane incident, ending their 12-year relationship.

As well as Maddox, they are parents to Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, ten, and twins Vivienne and Knox, eight.
