JOHANNESBURG - Brad Pitt is reportedly under investigation for allegedly getting verbally abusive and physical with his children.

Angelina Jolie filed for a divorce from Pitt, her husband of two years and romantic partner since 2005, on Monday.

The actor, Jolie and their kids were on a flight last Wednesday when he allegedly got drunk on the private jet. He went wild, screaming and getting physical with the kids.

According to reports, Pitt is being investigated by the LAPD and LA County Department of Children and Family Services after someone anonymously reported the incident.

Reports also suggest that the incident triggered Jolie to separate from Pitt the next day and file for divorce just days later.

The Oscar-winning actress filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday, citing irreconcilable differences, court documents showed. Jolie sought full physical custody of their six children ages 8 to 15 with visitation rights for Pitt but did not seek spousal support.
