Random Fuzzy



Some readers (Bia and Fiorella) were asking about the possibility that the investigation would extend to Brad's parents and whether it could be done by the time Brad is due in Shanghai.

I think they were clearly hoping the investigation would be closed by Oct 20 and that may have been why they agreed with the Nov. 13 trip to Shanghai. 

The expanded investigation shouldn't take too long since the DCFS are looking at specific incidents that the children spoke to the them about.  As TMZ wrote:
Our sources say through various interviews with family members, DCFS has now expanded its investigation to other alleged incidents, including interactions between Brad and Angelina which were allegedly witnessed by 1 or more of their 6 kids.

These would be other instances when Brad lost his temper and yelled at them and "interactions" between him and Angelina.  As the "legal source" told People, they are looking at "history or pattern of behavior" beyond the single plane incident.  Unless the children cited an incident that involved Brad's parents, they wouldn't be interviewed.

The DCFS just wants to get a better handle on the problem.  They are not out to do an exhaustive investigation of every instance Brad yelled at his kids -- which incidentally would not be classified as "abuse" that the DCFS would normally investigate.  Brad has said that he is the disciplinarian in the family and at least some of the yelling will fall under normal parental discipline.

As TMZ reported, "our sources say Brad has never acted aggressively toward his kids in the past -- other than verbally -- and Angelina felt the incident on the plane was a deal breaker."  We know that it had to have been bad for a third party -- probably the plane's crew -- to report it to the DCFS.

DCFS's investigation will likely establish that Brad has had problems even before he boarded the plane.  Which is why "Angelina sources say some of the children have been fearful around Brad, and Maddox in particular has problems with his dad." The fact that it was a long-festering problem will be a factor in their recommendations.

I've written several times that in addition to being very media savvy,  they are now further assisted by crisis managers.   So there is a reason for every piece of info they release.

Previously, TMZ wrote:
DCFS does have the authority to recommend custody restrictions to the dependency court, although it's looking more and more like it will not reach that stage. Furthermore, given there were no injuries to Maddox and conflicting accounts of what happened, prosecution is also unlikely.

At the end of TMZ's latest report they wrote:
None of our sources would say if the DCFS interviews turned up anything that would cause the agency to take action related to custody.

They added that last line to let us know they don't think the interviews have given the DCFS any reason not to allow Brad to get back together with the kids.


Brad has already had 5 weeks to deal with his problems. That's enough time to complete an intensive inpatient rehab program.  He's probably ready to show the DCFS that there are no longer any problems that could pose a danger to his kids.  If that is the case and the DCFS is satisfied, the investigation can be closed and they can leave all this behind.  The form for a Request for Dismissal has likely been ready for some time.

  3. Oh Fussy I really hope you are right, but I don't know. I'm preparing myself for everything :/ (or at least I'm TRYING to prepare myself...)

    2. When it was first mentioned that she could do Bride as a return favor to the studio for backing By the Sea I wasn't so sure. But a "tale of female liberation" from someone who is dead sounds like it could be fun and a good match for her. If she is indeed staying at Ron Meyer's house the odds probably went up a bit.

    2. Wth? Do u really know Brad that well??? Unless you have lived with them, it isn't right to speculate what he will do after this.

  9. For Anon Omous, i'm sure Brad is doing the best he can to fix this family situation, he's not a monster, and Angelina is a very compassionate woman. She had to protect her family . It's a very sad situation for all involved. They are working out for the best for them and their kids. When you have CPS in your life,it's a real treat.

  12. Fuzzy, do you think that there was any time that Brad and Angie were not speaking to each other? Maybe the first week.

    1. Brad Pitt Has Seen Kids Twice Since Split — but Not Son Maddox, Says Source

      And while Pitt, 52, and Jolie, 41, remain locked in negotiations, with custody arrangements front and center, the two have not been in communication with one another.

      “Brad and Angie haven’t had any contact, and it’s all being worked out via their teams,” says a family source in this week’s issue of PEOPLE. “It’s just a sad situation.”

      family source?

    2. People magazine has been caught lying before. I personally don`t believe that they have much information. But believe what you want.

  13. Can finally post...all day yesterday I couldn't see comments. Appears you did a blog update. Looks good.

    I come here for your positive forecasts Fussy and you haven't failed yet. Unlike other comments I've read elsewhere, to me it doesn't seem as if they as a couple had major problems and I'm referring to their love.

    Hoping for good news soon.
