    In a revelation that sent shockwaves through Hollywood, Angelina Jolie accused her ex-husband, Brad Pitt, of both verbal and physical abuse during a private plane flight in 2016, casting a shadow over their once-idyllic family life.

    According to court documents, the altercation on the flight began with a verbal disagreement and escalated alarmingly. "Pitt grabbed Jolie by the head and shook her," the documents allege, describing a harrowing sequence of events where Pitt's anger turned physical against Jolie and their children. When one of their children attempted to defend Jolie, Pitt reportedly lunged at them, prompting a protective response from the entire family. The documents detail Pitt's physical aggression, including choking one child and striking another, leading to Jolie filing for divorce shortly after the incident.

    The aftermath of their separation saw Pitt and Jolie embroiled in legal disputes, notably over the sale of Jolie's stake in their jointly owned Chateau Miraval winery. Pitt sued Jolie for allegedly breaching an agreement by selling her stake without his consent, a claim that Jolie's legal team disputes, arguing there was never such an agreement in place.

    Pitt's legal team has responded to Jolie's allegations, stating, "Brad has owned everything he’s responsible for from day one -- unlike the other side -- but he’s not going to own anything he didn't do." This statement highlights the contentious and ongoing nature of their dispute, reflecting both parties' deep entrenchment in their respective positions.

    The allegations and legal battles have had a profound impact on the family, with the children, including Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, at the center of this tumultuous period. The incident not only led to the dissolution of Pitt and Jolie's marriage but also exposed the complexities and challenges of managing family dynamics in the public eye.

    As the dust settles, the focus shifts to the well-being of their children and the hope for healing and understanding. The saga of Pitt and Jolie serves as a reminder of the pressures that come with fame and the often-hidden struggles of those in the public eye.

    In retrospect, the 2016 plane incident marks a pivotal moment in the narrative of one of Hollywood's most high-profile families, offering lessons on the importance of privacy, the impact of public scrutiny on family dynamics, and the long road to resolution and healing.
