Due to the simple fact that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are two of the most famous people on the planet, all eyes are on them during what is likely a painful and challenging time for them and their six children. It’s often hard to separate false and sensationalized tabloid reports from the truth, especially in light of the recent allegations that Angelina filed for divorce due to Brad’s allegedly violent outburst towards one of their children. It seems, however, that Brad is fully cooperating with the Department of Child and Family Services and has submitted to a voluntary urine test, according to a report by TMZ.

Anonymous sources close to the investigation reportedly told TMZ he took a urine test “within a couple days of the alleged incident on the plane,” with Brad voluntarily providing a urine sample “in an attempt to show he had nothing to hide, and to clear up any ‘exaggerations.'”

Brad apparently had been “drinking heavily” on the plane after the incident, but InTouch Weekly reports that Brad “is no abuser. His attempt to control the kids turned into an ugly scene but there were no punches thrown.”

A source told the magazine “Brad admitted to being drunk and losing his temper, but that’s it. He even took a urine drug test on the spot … He was extremely remorseful about the entire situation.”

Of course, take these reports with a grain of salt, but we’re sending positive vibes to the family and hoping that this ends in a peaceful and healthy way for both parents and their six children soon.
