FBI: No charges for Brad Pitt in alleged flight dispute

The FBI says it will not file charges against Brad Pitt stemming from an alleged dispute with his family aboard a private flight. The FBI released a statement Tuesday saying that it has reviewed the circumstances of the accusations and would not pursue further investigation. Sources familiar with the allegations have said they center on the actor’s treatment of his 15-year-old son, Maddox, during a private flight in September.

In response to allegations made following a flight … carrying Mr. Brad Pitt and his children, the FBI has conducted a review of the circumstances and will not pursue further investigation.

Pitt, 52, earlier this month was cleared by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services for the incident on Sept. 14. His wife, the actress Angelina Jolie, filed for divorce five days later. Jolie, 41, filed for divorce from Pitt, her husband of two years and romantic partner since 2005, citing irreconcilable differences and seeking full physical custody of their children, ages 8 to 15. At the time, the Oscar-winning actress said her decision to end the marriage “was made for the health of the family.”
