FBI Closes Brad Pitt Investigation: "Will Not Pursue Further Investigation"

Brad Pitt Allied - LEAD

After months of uncertainty, the FBI is officially closing its investigation into an incident that occurred between Brad Pitt and his 15-year-old son Maddox on a private plane back in September.

In a statement, the FBI told PEOPLE: "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’s findings are certainly a weight off of Pitt’s shoulders, but the Allied actor is still in the throes of a custody battle with his ex-wife, Angelina Jolie. Pitt has requested joint physical custody of their six children (Maddox, 15; Pax, 12; Zahara, 11; Shiloh, 10; and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8), while Jolie is seeking full physical custody.

Since the Department of Children and Family Services first launched its in September (which ended earlier this month), Pitt’s time with his children has been relegated to supervised visits.
