Brad Pitt is finally talking about his child abuse allegations after it's revealed he was caught on video

As more and more information leaks about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's shocking split, things keep looking worse for Pitt.

It's now been revealed that the incident on a private plane that led to Pitt being investigated for child abuse was caught on camera. The video hasn't been made publicly available.

And maybe because he was backed into a corner by the tape, Pitt now admits that he did yell at his eldest son, Maddox, but still insists he never hit him.

The alleged abuse complaint, which was filed anonymously, claims that Pitt got drunk on the plane and, during an argument with Jolie, became physically violent.

"Angelina and Brad got into an argument while on the plane, and their [15-year-old] son, Maddox, stepped in and got caught in the middle," a source told Page Six. "Brad may have been drinking and admits that he yelled at his son, but he insists he did not hit him or attempt to harm him. It was a confrontation that got out of hand."

The insider continued, "Angelina is putting out the [abuse] story to take the kids away from him. Angelina’s team’s campaign to smear him is so aggressive."

While the Los Angeles Department of Child and Family Services has been unable to comment on whether it's investigating Pitt, the FBI confirmed to Us Weekly this week that it's gathering facts about the case to decide whether it needs to begin a formal investigation. The video of the plane incident shows it happened just before Jolie filed for divorce, and many have speculated that that's why she pulled the trigger and made a move to end the marriage.
