Brad Pitt has been cleared by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. All ending with no charges being brought about following abuse claims made against the 52-year old.
The alleged incident occurred in September on a flight to Los Angeles involving his son Maddox. The Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services became privy to the details and became involved as a result, leaving the FBI of all bodies to conduct a review of the circumstances.
All Not Well In Pitt World
Despite being one of the most loved, best paid and iconic people in his field, none of those circumstances make you immune to heartbreak.

Jolie's lawyer closed discussions by producing a statement that explained the divorce was reached "for the health of the family."
Reaching a custody agreement with their six children earlier this month, the going of separate ways came following their marriage in August 2014. Being together almost a decade previous, the pair have a curious history. Jolie started by tying the knot with Billy Bob Thornton after doing likewise with Jonny Lee Miller, while Pitt was committed to Jennifer Aniston for 5 years leading into their divorce.
