- Now at 5:30, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's divorce drama keeps getting uglier. And Entertainment Tonight's Nischelle Turner has stunning new details of what Jolie is accusing her ex-husband of.

NISCHELLE TURNER: Hi, Elliot and Lauren. It's been nearly five years since Brad and Angie filed for divorce. And now she's accusing Brad of domestic violence. We have new reporting on how the allegations have rocked his world.

BRAD PITT: You have challenges. And you've got some uphills to face. It's scary for a moment, and then you look at your options, and you make the best decision, and you carry on.

NISCHELLE TURNER: A source close to Brad tells ET he is heartbroken, never attacked Angie, and is anxious to get custody worked out so the family can finally move on. We're also told those close to Pitt feel Jolie's recent domestic violence claim is simply a ploy to sway the family court in her favor. Angie's end game--

- If Jolie wins sole custody, I think the worst case scenario would be she then moves the kids away. And then Brad would not be able to regularly see them, which would sever the bond.

NISCHELLE TURNER: Earlier this month the case took an ugly turn after new court records revealed Angie is claiming she has proof of alleged domestic violence against Brad. And the kids could testify. But ET has learned Angie's filing was routine and not a new allegation, but one from 2016 where Brad was cleared. We reached out to Angie's rep for comment. Our Brad source also says it's worth noting how much Pitt's life has changed since that 2016 incident. Quote, "Brad has acknowledged his past drinking and taken responsibility for it." And tune in tonight to ET for our exclusive with Jessica Simpson. She's talking about her return to reality TV, weight loss secrets, and does she plan on having another baby. Find out on Entertainment Tonight. I'm Nischelle Turner.
