Brad Pitt has submitted a drug test to the Department of Children and Family Services voluntarily, according to People Magazine. He has reportedly been fully cooperating with DCFS, and this is standard procedure.
The actor, who split from his wife of two years and partner of 12 recently has been accused of being verbally abusive toward and getting physical with his son Maddox, who is 15 years old. A source told People, “He takes the matter very seriously and says he did not commit any abuse of his children. It’s unfortunate that people involved are continuing to present him in the worst possible light. Brad has been interviewed and is cooperating fully. The case remains open.”
David Kubiliun, chairman of Greenspoon Marder’s criminal law practice group added, “David Kubiliun, chairman of Greenspoon Marder’s criminal law practice group.”
It’s not been a great week for him. Pitt was also noticeably absent from his first public appearance. He skipped the premiere of the film he narrates, Voyage of Time: The IMAX Experience. In a statement, he said he is “currently focused on [his] family situation and doesn’t want to distract attention away from this extraordinary film.”
His next film, Allied, is set to be released in November. It’s been rumored that he and his costar Marion Cotillard had an affair while filming, though she has denied it.
