Brad Pitt may have less to worry about.
After reports surfaced that he allegedly hit or verbally abused his 15-year-old son Maddox on a private plane with Angelina Jolie and his family around, the FBI was called to investigate due to jurisdiction, but now, TMZ reports that a case was never opened.
In fact, the website says that sources told them the matter should have "never even been referred" to the FBI. The FBI is further fact-gathering but not calling it an investigation.
TMZ adds that Maddox did suffer any injuries and that witnesses told them that Brad's contact was "inadvertent."
Sources close to Brad have claimed that he admits to losing his temper but denied ever getting physical.
As Brad and Angelina's high-profile divorce saga continues, Brad is reportedly refusing to "play dirty," according to Us Weekly. He voluntarily submitted to a drug and alcohol test early on during his child abuse investigation, and multiple reports indicate that he came back clean.
According to the mag, the couple still share legal custody of Maddox, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, but their temporary parenting plan states that they will reside with Angelina. A friend further told the publication that Brad "will cooperate in any way he can to see the kids. By agreeing to this, he can see them, which is what he wanted."
It has also been reported that a therapist will be present during Brad's first visit with the children following the divorce filing. Brad, Angelina and the kids will all have additional therapy sessions, both as a group and individually.
With the family counseling, Brad and Angelina may be able to resolve things without getting the courts involved.
