FBI Closes Review of Brad Pitt Airplane Incident

The FBI has closed its review regarding allegations made about Brad Pitt and an incident involving his children on an airplane, the agency said on Tuesday.

“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. No charges have been filed in this matter,” the FBI said in a statement.

Pitt was also cleared by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services last month.

The alleged incident involved Pitt and his teenage son Maddox while the family was on a private jet flying from France to Los Angeles, with a stop in Minnesota, on Sept. 14. The DCFS had previously concluded that, while an argument allegedly ended with physical contact, it did not constitute as child abuse. Angelina Jolie’s rep said at the time that the DCFS was “now satisfied the safeguards are put in place that will allow the children to heal.”

The FBI said on Sept. 22 that the agency was “continuing to gather facts” about the incident to determine whether or not a federal investigation was necessary.

Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt in September, citing “irreconcilable differences” as legal grounds. Earlier this month, her rep said she and Pitt reached an agreement in the divorce that granted Jolie custody of all six of their children.
