Angelina Jolie accused ex-husband Brad Pitt of physically abusing her  & their childrens in 2016.

Angelina Jolie has filed court papers accusing ex-husband Brad Pitt of drunkenly attacking her and  their children.

She accused Pitt of attacking them during a private plane flight, prompting her to file for divorce.

In a lawsuit over a French winery that the stars bought, Jolie says Pitt grabbed her by the head and attacked two of their children on the 2016 trip.

Pitt also verbally abused & poured alcohol on his family during the flight from France to Los Angeles, she says.

However, Brad Pitt has denied all the allegations made by her ex-wife.

A source close to the actor told the BBC that Jolie's claims were false.

The accusation is made by Jolie's team during an ongoing lawsuit over Chateau Miraval SA, which the  duo bought in 2008.

Pitt argues that he & his former wife had agreed not to sell their stakes in the venue without the permission  of the other.

Jolie disputes this, & blames Mr Pitt for ending negotiations over purchasing her shares  of the property.
