41-year-old Angelina Jolie
had recently filed for divorce from the actor citing 'irreconcilable differences' and has asked for physical custody of the couple's six children.
On the other hand, a source close to the actor is reported to defend him saying, "He was never physically abusive to her or the kids."
"He did yell at one of their children on the plane during an argument, but he didn't hit the child. Brad is denying claims of inappropriate behaviour," the source explained.
Another source had also stood up for the father of six who takes the matter "very seriously" and says he did not commit any abuse
of his children.
"It's unfortunate that people involved are continuing to present him in the worst possible light," the source added.
