Movie star icon Brad Pitt is cleared on any charges originating from an incident on a private plane in which he was reported to have lost his cool with alleged physical assault in front of one or more of his children, an FBI spokeswoman said on Tuesday.
Pitt, 52, earlier this month was now cleared by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services for the incident and filed case on September 14. His estranged wife, Angelina Jolie, filed for divorce five days later.
"In response to allegations made following a flight within the special aircraft authority 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," said Laura Eimiller, a spokeswoman for the FBI's Los Angeles field office.
This Might Reversed The Decision About Children's Custody
"No charges have been filed in this matter," she said. Jolie, 41, filed for divorce from Pitt, her husband of two years and romantic partner since 2005, citing incompatible differences and seeking full physical custody of their children, ages 8 to 15.
Pitt's hugely publicized divorce with Jolie has created somewhat of a married relations nightmare in recent months, though the closure of the FBI's review found no charges, the latest in a series of good news in favor for the actor. Earlier this month, the Associated Press reported that the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, which had also reportedly been considerate so-called airplane misbehavior, had closed their case with no findings of abuse.
At the time, the Oscar-winning actress said her decision to end the marriage "was made for the health of the family." Their children include two adopted sons, Maddox from Cambodia and Pax from Vietnam, an adopted daughter from Ethiopia, Zahara, and three biological children, Shiloh Nouvel and twins Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline.
