Brad Pitt Allegedly 'Choked' One Of His Kids And 'Struck Another In The Face' On 2016 Flight

On Tuesday (October 4th), Angelina Jolie filed a cross-complaint in the legal battle over a French winery she and Brad Pitt once owned together. The court documents detail abuse allegations against Pitt from the plane incident in 2016 that led to their divorce.

"When one of the children verbally defended Jolie, Pitt lunged at his own child and Jolie grabbed him from behind to stop him. To get Jolie off his back, Pitt threw himself backwards into the airplane's seats injuring Jolie's back and elbow," the filing reads. "The children rushed in and all bravely tried to protect each other. Before it was over, Pitt choked one of the children and struck another in the face. Some of the children pleaded with Pitt to stop. They were all frightened."

The documents also claim that Pitt "periodically emerged from the back of the plane to yell and swear at them" over "many tense hours" on the flight, and "at one point, he poured beer on Jolie; at another, he poured beer and red wine on the children."

The filing states that Jolie "has gone to great lengths to try to shield their children from reliving the pain Pitt inflicted on the family that day, but when Pitt filed this lawsuit seeking to reassert control over Jolie's financial life and compel her to rejoin her ex-husband as a frozen-out business partner, Pitt forced Jolie to publicly defend herself on these issues for the first time."

Constance Wu Opens Up About Sexual Harassment In Emotional Interview

Constance Wu broke into tears on Late Night With Seth Myers Monday (October 3rd) while discussing the sexual harassment she experienced on the sitcom Fresh Off the Boat. Wu details the allegations in her new memoir Making a Scene.

The Crazy Rich Asians star shared that she "didn't want to write" about what happened during the first two seasons of the show. "That was the last essay I wrote for the book, and only after being, like, pushed by my editor, like, 'You should write about this. This is what people want to hear.' And I was like, 'I'm done with that chapter in my life,'" she said.

Wu writes in her book that one of the producers on Fresh Off the Boat dictated what she should wear, such as "short skirts," and who she should be friends with, among other accusations. She also claims that he touched her inappropriately at a basketball game.

"I had never done anything big before. I had just graduated from being a waitress. I was scared of being fired," she said. "Once I, sort of, felt a little bit of job security then I started saying no to this producer, which infuriated him. But it was okay, so I thought, 'You know what? I handled it. I don't need to stain the reputation of this show or of this producer. I can just keep it inside,'" she told Seth Myers.

The Hustlers actress added that all of this happened "before the #MeToo movement" as well. "I was just like, 'Nobody's going to believe me.' … I didn't know what to do."

However, Goldberg clarified that she wasn't wearing one.

"I don't really care about how you felt about the movie," the Ghost actress said. "But you should know that was not a fat suit, that was me. That was me. That was steroids. Remember last year? I assume you don't watch the show, or you would know that was not a fat suit." Goldberg was taking steroids at the time of filming to treat her sciatica symptoms.

She added, "It's OK not be a fan of movie, but you want to leave people's looks out. Just comment on the acting. And if you have a question, ask somebody. I'm sure you didn't mean to be demeaning."

Kim Kardashian Pays Over $1 Million To SEC For Promoting Cryptocurrency

Kim Kardashian has agreed to pay $1.26 million to settle Securities and Exchange Commission charges for promoting EthereumMax's crypto asset on Instagram and failing to disclose a payment she received for the promotion.

Gary Gensler, the chairman of the SEC, said on Monday (October 3rd), "This case is a reminder that, when celebrities or influencers endorse investment opportunities, including crypto asset securities, it doesn't mean that those investment products are right for all investors."

A lawyer for Kardashian said in a statement, "Kardashian fully cooperated with the SEC from the very beginning and she remains willing to do whatever she can to assist the SEC in this matter. She wanted to get this matter behind her to avoid a protracted dispute. The agreement she reached with the SEC allows her to do that so that she can move forward with her many different business pursuits."

Also on Monday (October 3rd), Kardashian launched a true crime podcast called The System on Spotify, according to Today. Spotify said in a statement, "Narrated by Kim Kardashian, alongside veteran true crime producer Lori Rothschild Ansaldi, ‘The System' dives into the story of Kevin Keith, a man convicted of triple homicide who, for nearly three decades, has been working alongside his family to prove he was wrongly accused."

Jameela Jamil Condemns 2023 Met Gala Theme

She Hulk actress Jameela Jamil is speaking out against the recent decision to choose controversial designer Karl Lagerfeld for the theme of the 2023 Met Gala. Vogue announced news of the theme last week.

"This man... was indeed, supremely talented, but used his platform in such a distinctly hateful way, mostly towards women, so repeatedly and up until the last years of his life, showing no remorse, offering no atonement, no apology, no help to groups he attacked... there was no explanation for his cruel outbursts," Jamil wrote on Instagram Saturday (October 1st).

The Good Place actress continued, "Those groups were women who were sexually assaulted, the entire me too movement, gay couples who wanted to adopt, all fat people, specifically fat women, and some of his greatest harm was against Muslim refugees, and the disgusting way he spoke about people fleeing their homes for fear of their lives."

She noted that saying her piece would "probably end" her relationship with Vogue. Regardless, she pointed out, "Why is THIS who we celebrate when there are so many AMAZING designers out there who aren't bigoted white men? What happened to everyone's principles and ‘advocacy.' You don't get to stand for justice in these areas, and then attend the celebration of someone who reveled in his own public disdain for marginalized people."

Marlon had called them in advance and asked them to watch the Academy Awards, which they did. As they saw me, up on stage, refusing that Academy Award for the stereotypes within the film industry, and mentioning Wounded Knee in South Dakota, it would break the media boycott," she told Variety recently.

Whoopi Goldberg Says Producers Were 'Trying Forever' To Get 'Till' Movie Made

Whoopi Goldberg spoke with The Hollywood Reporter on Saturday (October 1st) at the world premiere of Till, a film about the brutal murder of Emmett Till in 1955 and his mother Mamie Till-Mobley's subsequent fight for justice. Goldberg is a producer on the film and stars as Emmett's grandmother Alma Carthan.

Goldberg told the outlet that producers were "trying forever" to make the movie, but the movement for racial justice following the tragic deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery is what helped them finally secure funding. "People thought we should do some stories about Black people, after all that went on over the last couple of years. I always say, we got popular. We got back in vogue and people started saying maybe we should be doing more, we should be telling these stories and we got in through that and MGM's Orion division said, ‘We should do this.'"

She added, "Yes, thank you. Because we've been trying forever, just forever, to get it done. And people say, ‘No, it's an important story and we really feel for it.' And it's like, ‘So you're not going to give us any money for this?'"

Mentioning Amy Winehouse, Britney Spears, and Princess Diana as examples, Ratajkowski said, "I'm not surprised to hear that it's yet another movie fetishizing female pain, even in death … We love to fetishize female pain … We obsess over dead girls and serial killers."

The iCarly actress added that she wants this to change. "So I have a proposal. I think we all need to be a little more pissed off. 2022, baby, is my bitch era. I think we should all be in our bitch era," she said.

In a "special message" posted online by The Daily Show, Noah explained, "After seven years I feel like it's time, you know. I spent two years in my apartment, not on the road. You know, standup was done. And when I got back out there again I realized there was another part of my life I want to carry on exploring."

He added that this isn't an "instant" goodbye and said, "We'll fill out the timings and the whens. We'll still be here for the time being."

Noah took over hosting duties at The Daily Show in 2015, following Jon Stewart's 16-and-a-half years behind the desk.

Bruce Willis Sold His Image Rights Prior To Aphasia Diagnosis

Bruce Willis may have retired from Hollywood due to his aphasia diagnosis, but that doesn't mean he won't be seen on the big screen.

According to the Daily Mail, the 67-year-old actor sold his image rights to Deepcake, an artificial intelligence powered content optimization platform. Engineers at the Delaware-based copy created a "digital twin" of the Die Hard actor, which will make it possible to insert him into film projects.

The image was created using his likeness in Die Hard and The Fifth Element, and his estate will have final say on its use.

Willis' deepfake has already appeared in an August 2021 commercial for MegaFon, a Russian telecommunications company.

Willis said in a testimony on Deepcake's website after the ad ran,"With the advent of the modern technology, I could communicate, work and participate in filming, even being on another continent. It's a brand new and interesting experience for me, and I am grateful to our team."
