LOS ANGELES (AP) – The FBI says it’s gathering information about an incident involving Brad Pitt and his family aboard a private flight last week.

Spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said in a statement late Thursday that the agency is still evaluating whether to open its own investigation into allegations Pitt was abusive during the flight toward one of his six children with actress Angelina Jolie Pitt.

Several media outlets, using anonymous sources, have reported that the actor is under investigation by a child welfare agency because of the incident. The Los Angeles County Department of Children and Families refused to say whether it was investigating Pitt.

Messages left for Pitt’s representatives were not immediately returned.

Jolie Pitt filed for divorce Monday, saying she came to the decision “for the health of the family.”
