Angelina Jolie 'relieved' investigation into Brad Pitt abuse claims has ended

Angelina Jolie is 'relieved' to learn that the Department of Child and Family Services (DCFS) has ended its investigation into child abuse claims against Brad Pitt, this according to a statement from the actress's spokesperson.


DCFS has closed its investigation into Brad Pitt.

In a letter sent to Entertainment Tonight, the star confirms that the "DCFS is now satisfied the safeguards are put in place that will allow the children to heal." It further adds: "Angelina said from the beginning that she felt she had to take action for the health of the family."

An investigation into Brad's actions was launched in September after an alleged incident took place between the actor and his son Maddox on board a private plane.

The news comes days after the couple revealed that they reached a custody arrangement for their six children. The legal agreement states that the actress will continue to retain sole custody of their kids while her former husband will be granted "therapeutic visits".

The couple recently reached a custody agreement for their six children.

In a new statement issued on Monday (Nov. 7), Angelina's spokesperson said the custody agreement was reached more than a week ago in consultation with childcare specialists.

It read: "We can confirm that childcare professionals have encouraged a legal agreement accepted and signed by both sides over a week ago. In accordance with this agreement, the six children will stay in their mother's custody, and the children will continue therapeutic visits with their father. This has been determined by childcare professionals to be in the children's best interest."

After keeping a low profile for the past couple of months, Brad returned to work on Wednesday, walking the red carpet at the premiere of his film Allied.

Brad stepped out for the premiere of Allied on Wednesday evening.

The 52-year-old actor appeared to be in good spirits at the event, happily posing for photographs and signing autographs for delighted fans. "It's really sweet, everyone has been really kind out here," he told E! News. "It's really nice to have all the support."
