Brad Pitt has been reported to the Federal Bureau of Investigation for child abuse after an alleged incident on his private jet, it was claimed last night (Thursday).

The FBI has said it is gathering information about an alleged incident involving Brad Pitt on a private aircraft carrying the star and his children.

Jolie, 41, filed for divorce from Pitt, 52, Monday and requested sole physical custody of the couple's children.

Children and Family Services has yet to issue a statement regarding the originally reported investigation.

File picture taken on November 5, 2015 shows writer-director-producer-actress Angelina Jolie Pitt (left) and actor-producer Brad Pitt as they arrive for the opening night premiere of Universal Pictures" "By the Sea' in Hollywood. Police officials said that any suspicions of child abuse within their jurisdiction are fully investigated.

It is believed that someone either on the plane or the airport anonymously reported the indecent to the L.A County Department of Children and Family Services. The DCFS investigation is still said to be ongoing, but an LAPD spokesman has made it clear detectives are not involved and do not have an open case on the actor.

Meanwhile, a Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) spokeswoman said: "The LAPD is not handling any reports or allegations into child abuse against Mr Brad Pitt".

The actor - whose wife Angelina Jolie filed for divorce and ended their 12-year relationship following the reported incident - is accused of being "wasted" and "screaming" while in the air with his partner and two of their children. They were married in 2014.

The former couple have six children together, including three biological children and three adopted.

She's also hired Hollywood divorce lawyer Laura Wasser, whose previous clients include Johnny Depp and Khloe Kardashian.

I'm very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids.
