Brad Pitt Walks As FBI Drops Child Abuse Inquiry Against Brad Pitt

The FBI has closed its inquiry into Brad Pitt’s actions while on an international flight with his children, the agency confirmed Tuesday.

“The FBI has conducted a review of the circumstances and will not pursue further investigation,” said a statement sent by FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller. “No charges have been filed.”

Due to issues of jurisdiction, the case was referred from the Los Angeles Police Department to the FBI following allegations of abuse during a family dispute on a private plane as the Jolie-Pitts traveled back from France to the U.S. in September. The plane stopped on the journey to L.A. to refuel in Minnesota.

According to TMZ and Us Weekly, the FBI agents interviewed Jolie for several hours about the matter at her Los Angeles home on Oct. 18.

Pitt, who is on a media tour for his new movie Allied, was also cleared of child abuse allegations by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services on Nov. 9.

He is pursuing joint custody of his six children with Jolie. In her divorce filing, Jolie requested sole physical custody of Maddox, 15; Pax, 12; Zahara, 11; Shiloh, 10; and twins Vivienne and Knox, 8.

Representatives for Jolie previously stated the actress was satisfied with safeguards put in place for their children. A representative for Pitt declined to comment.
