Back in April 2005, Wenner owned US Weekly and shared that a photographer who worked with the publication received a tip that Jolie, and her son Maddox, were staying at a resort on the coast of Africa with Pitt, who was still married to Aniston.
The actress’ lawyers wrote that Jolie’s attempts to sell her share of Château Miraval to Pitt fell apart after Pitt demanded she sign “a nondisclosure agreement that would have contractually prohibited her from speaking outside of court about Pitt’s physical and emotional abuse of her and their children,” the Times cited from the filing it obtained.
Jolie’s new filing detailed the couple’s alleged altercation during a plane ride on Sept. 14, 2016 that ultimately led Jolie to file for divorce from Pitt days after, on Sept. 20, 2016.
The New York Times reports her suit said the incident began when Pitt accused her of being “too deferential” to their children and then yelled at her in the bathroom.
“Pitt grabbed Jolie by the head and shook her, and then grabbed her shoulders and shook her again before pushing her into the bathroom wall,” the filing stated, per the New York Times. “Pitt then punched the ceiling of the plane numerous times, prompting Jolie to leave the bathroom.”
