FBI clears Brad Pitt in child abuse investigation

Brad Pitt will not face any charges after the FBI closed an investigation into allegations that he lost his temper in front of one or more of his children on a private plane on Sept. 14, according to an FBI spokeswoman.

The Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services cleared Pitt of the allegations earlier this month.

“In response to allegations made following a flight within the special aircraft jurisdiction of the United States which landed in Los Angeles carrying Mr. Brad Pitt and his children, the FBI has conducted a review of the circumstances and will not pursue further investigation,” Laura Eimiller, a spokeswoman for the FBI’s Los Angeles field office, said Tuesday. “No charges have been filed in this matter.”

According to E! News, court documents show that Angelina Jolie, 41, separated from Pitt on Sept. 15 and filed for divorce on Sept. 19. The two began dating more than 10 years ago and were officially married in 2014.

Pitt and Jolie, who share three biological children and three adopted children, have not commented on the FBI ruling. Custody of the couple’s six children, who range in age from 8 to 15, has been an ongoing battle. Jolie has reportedly asked for physical custody of the children and will allow Pitt visitation. Pitt filed for joint custody with his soon-to-be ex-wife in early November, CNN reported.
