The claims are part of a counterclaim filed by Jolie as part of the Hollywood power couple’s ongoing legal battle over the sale of their joint vineyard in southern France (PA).

The allegations of the alleged 2016 incidents were previously included in a redacted FBI report prepared at the time.

Documents filed in Los Angeles on Wednesday and obtained by the PA news agency claim Pitt “verbally assaulted” his ex-wife and once “pounced” on one of his children.

“On September 14, 2016, Jolie’s marriage came to an end. That day, Jolie, Pitt and their children flew to Los Angeles from Chateau Miraval,” the documents read.

“During the long night flight, Pitt physically and emotionally abused Jolie and her children, who ranged in age from eight to 15 at the time.

“After that flight, for the sake of her family, Jolie decided to file for divorce.”

The filing further alleged that Pitt’s “aggressive behavior” began before boarding the plane by confronting the children and Jolie before continuing onboard.

“When one of the children verbally defended Jolie, Pitt lunged at his own child and Jolie grabbed him from behind to stop him.

“To lift Jolie off his back, Pitt threw himself backwards into the airplane seats, injuring Jolie’s back and elbow.

“The children rushed in and everyone tried valiantly to protect each other. Before it was over, Pitt choked one of the children and punched another in the face.

“Some of the kids asked Pitt to stop. They were all afraid. Many cried.”

The documents went on to say that Pitt continued aggressively, berating the family and at one point “pouring beer and red wine over the children.”

After landing, Pitt also allegedly prevented the family from getting off the plane and again physically abused one of his children.

“After interviewing various witnesses, the FBI agent conducting the investigation concluded that the government had probable cause to charge Pitt with a federal felony for his conduct that day, and the agent prepared testimony on.” the probable cause for referral to the United States Attorney’s Office,” the documents said.

The filing added that Jolie “went to great lengths to try to protect her children from reliving the pain Pitt caused the family that day.”

“When Pitt filed this lawsuit to regain control of Jolie’s financial life and force her to rejoin her ex-husband as a frozen business partner, Pitt forced Jolie to publicly defend herself on these matters for the first time,” they explained.

The couple’s ongoing dispute revolves around the sale of their stake in Chateau Miraval SA, a French company with a home and vineyard in southern France, which they bought in 2008.

Pitt has previously accused Jolie of staging a “hostile” takeover of the wine business he “carefully built” and forcing him into a partnership with “a stranger with toxic associations and intentions” — Russian oligarch Yuri Shefler.

Located in the village of Correns in south-eastern France, the Miraval estate was bought by the couple for around 25 million euros (£20,875,500).

According to legal documents obtained by PA, Pitt contributed 60% to the purchase price, with Jolie paying the remaining 40%.
