According to Brad Pitt‘s attorney, he has accepted responsibility for his actual conduct but will not do so for parts of his ex-wife Angelina Jolie’s account that are untrue, and he will continue to reply in court to her claims that he choked one of their children and physically attacked her on a flight in 2016.

Pitt’s attorney, Anne Kiley, said in a statement that Pitt “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. He has been on the receiving end of every type of personal attack and misrepresentation.”

The statement followed Angelina Jolie‘s public court declaration on Tuesday, in which she claimed that he had seized her by the head and shaken her before choking one of their six children and striking another when they tried to defend her. The lawsuit was related to a French winery that the two co-owned.

When questioned, the spokesperson declined to comment further. Kiley did not explain which details of Jolie’s allegation Pitt denies and which he accepts responsibility for.

After looking over the claims, the FBI and the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services opted not to press charges against Pitt. They were also discussed during testimony at the couple’s divorce trial when a judge determined Jolie and Pitt ought to share custody 50/50. However, that decision was overturned when the judge was found to be ineligible by an appeals court.

“Thankfully, the various public authorities the other side has tried to use against him over the past six years have made their own independent decisions,” Kiley’s statement added. “Brad will continue to respond in court as he has consistently done.”

Representatives for Jolie were unavailable right away for an official response.

The events occurred as Pitt and Jolie were departing for Los Angeles on a private flight from their home and winery in France. Neither Pitt nor Jolie have spoken out about what happened on the flight, but she has openly argued for stronger domestic laws and has replayed the abuse allegations through legal actions like Tuesday’s cross-complaint to a lawsuit Pitt filed over the home and winery.

“Pitt lunged at his own child and Jolie grabbed him from behind to stop him. To get Jolie off his back, Pitt threw himself backwards into the airplane’s seats injuring Jolie’s back and elbow,” Jolie’s court filing read. “The children rushed in and all bravely tried to protect each other. Before it was over, Pitt choked one of the children and struck another in the face.”

The FBI started an investigation in the days that followed, and a report that contained many of the same specifics as Jolie’s most recent court filing was made public earlier this year with significant redactions.

Federal prosecutors stated they decided not to press charges, and the FBI announced at the time that it had reviewed the circumstances and would not look into them any further.

For 12 years, one of Hollywood’s most notable couples was the union of the 58-year-old Oscar-winning actor Pitt and the 47-year-old Oscar-winning actor and director Jolie.

When they got married in 2014, they had been romantically involved for ten years. Jolie filed for divorce shortly after the 2016 trip, and a judge ruled the couple was no longer married in 2019. However, the divorce case has not been resolved because of unresolved custody and financial matters.
