The New York Times reports that Angeline Jolie has filed a countersuit against Brad Pitt that provided additional details about a 2016 incident on her private plane. Multiple reports state that what happened on the plane has led to the dissolution of their marriage, which is still not officially over as the two continue court proceedings toward a divorce.

The filing states, "Pitt choked one of the children and punched another in the face" and "grabbed Jolie's head and shook her." It continues: “He poured beer on Jolie; other times he poured beer and red wine on the children.” After the incident, sources close to Pitt told Page Six that the allegations were false.
Part of the legal battle involves what will happen to the winery they once owned together, Château Miraval. When Jolie tried to sell her shares in the company, she claimed that Pitt insisted that she "sign a nondisclosure agreement that would have contractually barred her from speaking outside of court about Pitt's physical and emotional abuse of her and her children." “.
Earlier this year, Pitt accused Jolie of violating his "contractual rights" after she sold half of the company to Stoli Group. In today's counterclaim, Jolie says she was forced to sell after Pitt pressured her to sign the non-disclosure agreement. Her lawsuit adds that an FBI investigation "concluded that the government had probable cause to charge Pitt with a federal crime for his conduct that day."

"After reviewing the document, a representative of the United States Attorney's Office discussed the merits of this investigation with the case officer," according to a report obtained by the New York Times. "All parties agreed that no criminal charges will be filed in this case due to several factors."
"She went to great lengths to try to keep her children from reliving the pain Pitt inflicted on the family that day," Jolie's legal team wrote in today's filing. "But 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."
