Brad Pitt, accused of child abuse, is under investigation

Brad Pitt was “caught off guard” by divorce

However, LAPD representatives insist there are now "no active investigations" involving the actor.

It comes after representatives for the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services told Mashable that due to confidentiality, they could not confirm or deny an investigation into alleged child abuse against Pitt, as per their standard policy.

Jolie has listed September 15 as the date of their separation and filed for divorce four days later. The Minnesota connection? The celebrity gossip site claims that the flight eventually landed in Minnesota, where Pitt continued to freak out.

A day later, reports started popping up that Pitt was under investigation by the LAPD for "allegedly getting verbally abusive and physical with his children", according to TMZ.

Though, in a statement, the LAPD told Us Weekly that it "is not handling any report or allegations into child abuse for Mr. Brad Pitt".

"He takes this very seriously and is fully cooperating", a source close to Pitt, who was not authorized to speak publicly, told USA TODAY.

News of Pitt and Jolie's split was announced Tuesday.

The couple first met when they played married spies in the film Mr And Mrs Smith, when Brad was still married to Friends star Jennifer Aniston.
