LOS ANGELES — 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 it has reviewed the circumstances of the accusations and will 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.
Angelina Jolie Pitt filed for divorce a few days later. Her attorney said it was "for the health of the family."
A spokesman for Pitt had no comment Tuesday. A representative for Jolie Pitt did not immediately return messages seeking comment.
Custody of the actors' six children has been the primary issue in their divorce. Jolie Pitt is seeking sole custody of the children, while Pitt is seeking joint custody. A final agreement will be part of the couple's divorce judgment when it is entered.
California law favors joint custody, although details about custody arrangements are rarely made public in celebrity divorce cases.
