New details about Brad Pitt’s relationship with his children have come to light with private documents regarding the momentous 2016 flight he took with his family, after which his then-wife Angelina Jolie filed for divorce.

The documents relate to a case where Angelina sued the FBI for their decision to close an investigation into her ex-husband after he allegedly harmed her on a 2016 flight.

It’s alleged that while he clashed with Angelina on the flight, he also argued with his eldest son, Maddox, who would have been 15 at the time.

The documents claim that Brad said one of the children looked like “a f—ing Columbine kid,” and that one of his kids also called him a p—k.

At that point, the claims allege that Angelina had to step in to stop Brad from harming the child, who is believed to be Maddox.

The wording of the case alleges that Angelina’s children have “experienced lasting physical and mental trauma” after being “verbally and physically” assaulted by her ex-husband while on the private plane.

These new details have come to light as the exes remain gridlocked in a custody battle.

After filing for divorce, Angelina had full custody of all their children up until 2021, when a judge granted joint custody of the children.

However, this would change again when the judge’s impartiality was questioned, and he was forced to step back from the case.

While Angelina is often pictured with her children, the same can rarely be said for Brad.

A source revealed to In Touch that Brad is “super upset” that he doesn’t have a relationship with his eldest son.

Maddox, who is now 21, is attending Yonsei University in South Korea.

However, Brad seems to still have a relationship with some of the six kids he once shared with Angelina.

“I’m so proud of her,” he said of his daughter, Zahara, who recently began her university studies, in a chat with Vanity Fair.

“She’s so smart. She’s going to flourish even more at college.”

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, he also made a rare comment about his eldest biological daughter, Shiloh, who recently went viral when she appeared in a video online, showing off her dancing skills.

“It brings a tear to the eye,” he said. “I don’t know where she got it from. I’m Mr. Two-Left-Feet here.”

“I love when they find their own way, find things they are interested in and flourish,” he added.

Since the incident on the flight, Brad has become sober.
