Mumbai: Actor Brad Pitt is reportedly under investigation for child abuse after he allegedly got verbally abusive and physical with one of his children with Angelina Jolie, on the couple's private plane while their other kids were present.

The Los Angeles Police Department and LA County Department of Children and Family Services are both investigating after someone anonymously reported the incident last Wednesday on the tarmac, a source told People magazine.

The source accused Pitt of getting verbally abusive and physical with one of the couple's kids and. Jolie was present at the time, along with at least some of their other children.

The report allegedly indicates he had been drinking at the time of the incident.

Another source said that Pitt, 52, did not return to the LA family home with Jolie, 41, and the children after the incident. TMZ first reported news of the child services investigation.

A source close to Pitt said that that he is not taking the investigation lightly. "He takes the matter very seriously and says he did not commit any abuse of his children," the insider said. "It's unfortunate that people involved are continuing to present him in the worst possible light."

Jolie, 41, filed for divorce and requested sole physical custody of the six children- Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, and twins Knox and Vivienne. In documents filed in court on Monday, Jolie cited irreconcilable differences in ending their marriage of two years.

She listed the date of separation as September 15, a day after Pitt's alleged blow-up.
