Angelina Jolie: I Won't File Child Abuse Charges Against Brad!

by at .

The last thing we heard about the sordid saga that is Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's divorce, they'd reached a temporary settlement.

According to the terms of the settlement, which will last three weeks, Angelina gets full custody of the kids while Brad gets visitation rights -- but a therapist has to be present for the first visit, and the therapist will decide if Brad's future visits should be supervised or unsupervised.

Brad has to undergo random drug testing because, as we've heard, Angelina believes Brad has been drinking too much and smoking too much weed.

And finally, the whole family has to get a whole lot of therapy.

The word is that all of this came about because of an incident on a plane in which Brad is said to have attacked their oldest son, Maddox, in some way.

There's been a lot of confusion as to what exactly happened, but whatever it was, it was enough for witness to contact authorities.

But now we're hearing more details about what went down on that plane.

And what's more, we're hearing about what Angelina wants to happen to Brad in the aftermath of the incident.

According to sources on Angelina's side who spoke with TMZ, she told the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services that Brad actually struck Maddox in the face.

Sources close to Brad maintain that he simply lunged at Maddox and accidentally hit him when Angelina got in between them.

But the point is that, whatever happened, Angelina is reportedly refusing to cooperate with any actions to file charges against Brad.

Yeah, this is an interesting turn of events.

As it stands now, authorities can determine whether or not to charge Brad with child abuse. And if they decide to go after him, Angelina will refuse to help them.

It's kind of strange that Angelina would take this stance, since she was obviously disturbed by Brad's actions.

But this report claims that Angelina is firm -- Brad shouldn't be prosecuted.

She's said to be more concerned with "protecting her kids" instead of with "punishing Brad."

And that makes sense, right?

If Brad were to be charged with child abuse, it wouldn't be good for him, to say the least. And it would have to be hard on the kids to see their father like that. 

Maybe he deserves to be prosecuted, maybe he doesn't. It's hard to say without knowing all the details.

But either way, what a sad, sad situation this is.
