Angelina Jolie detailed Brad Pitt’s alleged abuse of her and their children on a private plane in 2016 in a cross-complaint filed Tuesday in Los Angeles court.

The New York Times obtained the counterclaim that Jolie filed with the court.

On the flight from France to Los Angeles, “Brad choked one of the children and struck another in the face” and “grabbed Jolie by the head and shook her,” according to the latest filing that stems from a battle over a  French winery they bought together in 2008.

The actress also alleges that Pitt poured beer on her and “beer and red wine on the children.”
“After reviewing the document, a representative of the United States Attorney’s Office discussed the merits of this investigation with the case agent,” the report stated. “It was agreed by all parties that criminal charges, in this case, would not be pursued due to several factors.”

Jolie’s filing currently states that the FBI agent who investigated physical assault allegations had “concluded that the government had probable cause to charge Pitt with a federal crime for his conduct that day.”

Pitt alleges that Jolie violated his “contractual expectations” when she sold her interest in the wine company to Tenute del Mondo, a subsidiary of Stoli Group.
