New York: Actor Brad Pitt may not be prosecuted for child abuse despite ‘lunging for Maddox’, say legal experts.
According to legal experts, the Hollywood star will not face any action over the alleged fracas with 15-year-old Maddox as there are so many discrepancies, reports mirror.co.uk.
It appears police officials did not receive a report of the recent incident and Maddox had no injuries when visited by social workers. A legal expert added: “It appears Brad made contact with Maddox somewhere in the vicinity of the shoulder area. The biggest issue — whether it was intentional or inadvertent. It’s the job of prosecutors to prove it was intentional, and we are told that would be extremely difficult.” Because of the blurred line between abuse and parental discipline, experts say a successful prosecution would be unlikely.
Meanwhile, Angelina Jolie, who is said to be staying at a top secret location with the family, is said to be stopping the 52-year-old from visiting their children allegedly until the FBI investigation has been completed.
She had filed for divorce on Monday citing irreconcilable differences and asking for sole physical custody of their six children, including 11-year-old Zahara, 10-year-old Shiloh and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
