Washington D.C. [USA], Sept. 25 (ANI): Recent allegations claiming that Brad Pitt struck his son Maddox over a fight, might be gaining a new light as a footage caught at Minnesota's International Falls Airport shows no such sign. The footage shows Pitt screaming at his teen son but making no physical contact before driving off on airport fuel truck, reports the Daily Mail. According to a source who saw the video, "Brad is seen yelling a lot during it, but nothing physical." This may clear the 52-year-old actor on abuse allegations made when his wife Angelina Jolie filed a divorce on the grounds of 'irreconcilable differences.' Whether that was the extent of the confrontation between the father and son, or if the heated row continued after the plane took back off, is unsure. Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are still investigating into the alleged argument. There were earlier reports, which claimed the confrontation between the father and his teenage son escalated to the point that he struck the boy - 'intentionally or inadvertently.' However, a friend close to the actor had shot down such allegations saying they are "exaggerated and fabricated." "It's unfortunate for the whole family that people are insisting on continuing this endless smear campaign against Brad that hurts everyone," the friend said, adding, "They are a solid family with two caring parents and a normal share of verbal disagreements like major households."(ANI)
