LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com)   —   Police are not actively investigating actor Brad Pitt for alleged child abuse despite reports to the contrary, the LAPD said Thursday.

A spokesperson for LAPD’s juvenile division says police are not investigating any type of report involving Pitt or his kids.

“LAPD is not handling any reports or allegations of child abuse against Mr. Brad Pitt,” LAPD spokeswoman Jenny Hauser said.

TMZ reported early Thursday the LAPD and county Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) for alleged verbal and physical abuse against his children with estranged wife Angelina Jolie.

Jolie announced Wednesday she filed for divorce from Pitt after 2 years of marriage “for the health of the family”.

TMZ’s Harvey Levin told KNX 1070 that although the LAPD says they’re not investigating any allegations against Pitt, he believes DCFS referred the case to police.

“I don’t know the status of LAPD, I am told the children’s services always refers over to them when it is a child abuse allegation,” said Levin. “I don’t know the status, but I’m told it was done.”

According to Levin, Pitt has acknowledged that “some incident” had occurred but that no abuse was committed.

Levin told CBS2, “What the allegation is, is that Brad was drinking and possibly smoking weed, and went nuts on the plane and that Brad then verbally and physically abused the children.”

He said it was this incident that led to Jolie deciding to end her marriage.

DCFS spokesman Armand Montiel told CBS2, “State law does not allow for us to confirm or deny the subjects are under investigation.”

This is the second marriage for Pitt, 52, who previously wed Jennifer Aniston. It’s the third for Jolie, who was previously married to Billy Bob Thornton and Jonny Lee Miller.

KCAL9’s Amy Johnson quoted a New York Post story that quoted a source saying he “never” was physically abusive to her or the kids. He did acknowledge yelling at the child but said it never got physical.

Said Levin, “Anglina begs to differ.”

Since the alleged incident happened in the air, the FBI would also have possible jurisdiction. The bureau’s LA field office issued the following statement to the media Thursday evening.

“In response to your inquiry regarding allegations within the special aircraft jurisdiction of the United States; specifically, an aircraft carrying Mr. Brad Pitt and his children, the FBI is continuing to gather facts and will evaluate whether an investigation at the federal level will be pursued.”

        You want to know another thing about Transgender people. Well, you pu$sies think I need so much protection when I already get paid more licking buttlips than what most of you’ll ever see with or without these people. Jail is punishment, but constitutionally it can’t be “cruel or unusual,” so every time you brain dead pu$sies give in and vote for more tough on crime laws check from where the “ferry dust” is coming. Transgender is not sexual deviance, know your terms, dumba-$ses.

    If you suspect criminal physical or sexual abuse call 911 to get the police. DCFS / CPS should not be investigating crimes. DCFS / CPS agencies routinely cause harm to families because they try to overstep their purpose which is to find placements for children that police take into protective custody.
    The best way to protect yourself and your children from the horrors of DCFS is to never speak to them in the first place. I have been a foster parent and have adopted three children from Los Angeles County DCFS. Even with that, they traumatized my six children when they stormed my home with armed deputies based on a false anonymous allegation to the DCFS hot line (it was later proven to be by one of the birth mothers and her Moranic friend). When I started posts such as this one to advise people of their rights, DCFS Directors Armand Montiel and Xiomara Flores – Holguin retaliated against me by directly contacting my employer in an effort to silence me. My advice to everyone everywhere is to never speak DCFS, never let them into your home, never let them see or speak to your children, never give them any information about your family, and never sign anything from DCFS. They can not legally enter your home without your consent, an emergency (such as a child screaming for help), or a warrant. Even with a warrant, you and your children can not be compelled to speak to DCFS; you should all continue to exercise your right to remain silent. If you think DCFS will return with a warrant, move or go on vacation. Most importantly, never become a foster parent.
