According to a spokesperson for the FBI, A-list movie star Brad Pitt, 52, whose new spy film Allied directed by Back to the Future’s Robert Zemeckis is released in cinemas this Friday, has not been criminally charged for an incident on a private jet during which he reportedly lost his temper in full view of his adopted son Maddox and possibly more of his children.

Allegations led to Pitt/Jolie divorce

The allegations came amid Pitt’s messy divorce from fellow A-lister Angelina Jolie, 41, who wants full custody of their six children, three biological, Shiloh Nouvel and twins Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline, and three adopted, Maddox adopted from Cambodia, Pax adopted from Vietnam, and Zahara, adopted from Ethiopia.

Details on the incident, which took place on 14 September, are murky, as very little about what actually happened has been released. It was also investigated by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, who also dropped the charges filed against Pitt and closed the case. Jolie (who rebranded herself as Angelina Jolie-Pitt recently and will probably be de-branding herself back pretty soon) filed for divorce just five days following the incident.

The FBI have released a statement

Laura Eimiller, the FBI spokeswoman, who works at the bureau’s LA field office, made the following statement: “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,” and concluding that, “No charges have been filed in this matter.”

While Jolie and Pitt had been seriously romantically involved since 2005, they only got married two years ago, making Jolie’s decision to file for divorce even more shocking. She has given irreconcilable differences between the pair as the reason for her decision, and says she has decided to end their marriage “for the health of the family.”
