There are now reports that the Brad Pitt child abuse accusations may have been exaggerated.

It's been a bad week for Pitt, Angelina Jolie and their six kids, with the once loving couple deciding to get a divorce. Soon after this announcement, there were reports of possible child abuse on the part of Pitt. The reports accused Pitt of "verbally abusing" one of his kids on a plane, and even getting "physical" at one point while intoxicated.

Now, an insider is claiming that all of these rumors about Pitt abusing one of his kids might be fabricated.

"Angelina is a good mother," the insider noted to Us Weekly in a new report. "Brad appreciates and respects her, and knows she's a good mother. He knows that it's important to do what's right for the kids, whatever that is going to be. ... These reports about abuse on the plane are exaggerated or fabricated."

They added that Pitt has "cooperated" so far with the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) investigation, noting, "He certainly wants what's best for his kids and for them to be in the best environment and he'll do anything that will put them in the best position."

One factor that may have gone into Jolie's decision to divorce Pitt was their differences of opinion on how to raise their kids, though.

"They always had disagreements when it came to disciplining the kids," a source told People. "He has wanted the kids to have more structure. Brad will get frustrated sometimes and yell at the kids." However, the source added that they have "never seen any physical abuse" by either Pitt or Jolie.

"The kids get out of control and the house was a constant chaos," the source admitted. Yet, those "differences and arguments" Pitt and Jolie had about their kids "seemed very normal."

It remains to be seen what the DCFS investigation will come up with in the days to come.
