Cape Town – Brad Pitt is reportedly under investigation for child abuse.

TMZ reported the Fury actor is being investigated by the LAPD and the LA County Dept of Children and Family Services for allegedly getting verbally and physically abusive with his kids.

According to the gossip website, sources familiar with the incident claim Brad got intoxicated on a private jet last Wednesday and as a result "went wild, started screaming and got physical with the children".

Brad and Angelina have reportedly already been interviewed by the DCFS in an ongoing investigation. The organisation plan on interviewing their six kids as well.

While details of the abuse claim have not been released the investigation is said to be routine when anyone reports child abuse.

A source close to Brad told TMZ, "He 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."
