Angelina Jolie has reportedly filed court papers through which she has accused her ex-husband Brad Pitt of attacking her and their children in an inebriated state during a plane ride in 2016. The said incident reportedly prompted her to file for a divorce against the actor. The countersuit from Jolie’s side comes after Pitt sued the actress in February over selling her stake in one of their French wineries claiming their agreement stating that neither would sell the same without the other’s consent.
