Brad Pitt cleared of child abuse allegations
TVC E. 52-year-old Brad Pitt has officially been cleared of child abuse allegations by the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services.
TMZ reports the case, involving an incident between the actor and his 15-year-old son Maddox on a private jet, has been closed.
According to the DCFS, Brad did not commit child abuse during an argument that ended with physical contact.
TMZ reached out to Angelina Jolie’s representatives who say the actress feels relieved that the investigation has concluded and her children can heal.
“Angelina said from the beginning that she felt she had to take action for the health of the family and is relieved that after their 8-week involvement, the DCFS is now satisfied the safeguards are put in place that will allow the children to heal,” her rep told the entertainment website.
They also say an agreement has been put in place that gives Angelina primary custody with monitored visitation for Brad. The Hollywood actor was spotted for the first time since Angelina Jolie filed for divorce last month at a private screening of “Moonlight” in Los Angeles with Julia Roberts.
