Brad Pitt will have to spend a fortune to prove his innocence of child abuse allegations as he faces a "trial by media", says the former editor of Loaded.
Martin Daubney also described the actor as "just another vulnerable, isolated and terrified father" in light of the abuse allegations and his impending divorce from Angelina Jolie.
The FBI has revealed it is considering an investigation into claims Pitt had an argument with his son Maddox on a plane. The claims were made just days after Jolie filed for divorce against Pitt, citing irreconcilable differences.
According to TMZ the incident happened on a flight from France to Minnesota last Wednesday, in which Pitt allegedly got drunk before screaming and getting "physical". However the New York Daily News reported the argument was verbal. The Los Angeles Police Department has said it is not involved.
"When the end game [in a marriage] is reached like this, quite often these very serious allegations come out," said Daubney, who is now a prominent campaigner for men's rights. "He's going to have to spend a lot of money on very expensive lawyers to prove himself.
"It's now up to him to prove that he's innocent, and by nature of this it's going to be carried out as a trial by media, we've seen this with Johnny Depp."
Daubney added: "What we're seeing here is the realisation that Brad Pitt, for all his millions and his charmed life, is at the moment just another vulnerable, isolated and terrified father.
"When it comes down to anything of this matter then the police have a responsibility to investigate, quite often there's a restraining order put up on the father."
