Bombshell allegations have been reported against Brad Pitt following his split from wife Angelina Jolie — and though you might expect an A-list actor to already have a team of representatives in place, as of Thursday Pitt continued to be without a personal publicist or attorney.
ET can confirm that prior to Jolie filing for divorce on Monday, the power couple did not have personal public relations representatives, which is extremely rare for Hollywood stars of their stature. Instead, they have been relying solely on agents and managers to handle announcements about their children or marriage, for example. But a source tells ET that a New York-based strategic communications firm has now been asked to advise Pitt.
Meanwhile, Pitt is also bulking up his legal team, enlisting Beverly Hills attorney Lance Spiegel as one his lawyers, ET can confirm. Spiegel has previously represented many celebs in family law issues, including Eva Longoria in her divorce from Tony Parker.
On Tuesday, the actor addressed the split in statement, saying, "I'm very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids. I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time."
Jolie’s entertainment lawyer, Robert Offer, also released a statement on Tuesday to say her decision to file for divorce "was made for the health of the family.”
On Thursday, reports surfaced claiming the A-list actor was physically and verbally abusive to one of his six children while traveling on a flight from France to the U.S. on Sept. 14. In her divorce filing, Jolie lists the couple's date of separation as Sept. 15.
According to People, an anonymous tip was made to the L.A. County Department of Child and Family Services after the alleged altercation within their family last week. The DCFS told ET, “We have very strict confidentiality laws and the laws do not allow us to confirm or deny the subjects of our investigations."
The LAPD released a statement to ET on Thursday that they are "not handling any reports or allegations into child abuse for Mr. Brad Pitt."
