In Touch has exclusively learned that the LA County’s Department of Children and Family Services has extended their investigation into Brad Pitt's parenting, one that was supposed to close by the end of October, due to new accusations surfacing.
This investigation began on the heels of allegations that he’d gotten physical with some of his kids on a flight from France to the U.S. on Sept. 14, five days before Angelina Jolie filed for divorce. After more than a month of interviews, two voluntary drug tests (both negative) and little visitation with his six children, the deadline came and went.

“The investigation,” an insider with knowledge of the probe tells In Touch, “was not closed on schedule for a reason.”
“The DCFS investigation is now going to continue for at least several more weeks.”

“Now DCFS is interviewing many people to determine if they are witnesses to any improper behavior by Brad as well as searching for others who have knowledge of his actions. That includes nannies, household staff members and more,” another insider tells In Touch.
“The fact that the investigation was extended is an indication of how serious this is,” the second insider tells In Touch. This means the kids — Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8 — as well as Brad, 52, and Angelina, 41, are now going to have be interviewed by DCFS social workers again.
