The FBI is no longer investigating Brad Pitt regarding his involvement in an alleged incident with a child aboard a private plane on Sept. 15, E! News has learned.

An FBI spokesperson released the following statement to E! News:

"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. No charges have been filed in this matter."

Earlier this month, Pitt was cleared of child abuse allegations by the Los Angeles Country Department of Children and Family Services.

Back in late October, the FBI visited Angelina Jolie's residence in Malibu for several hours and conducted interviews with all potential witnesses, including some of the former couple's childrenMaddox Jolie-Pitt, 15, Pax Jolie-Pitt, 12, Zahara Jolie-Pitt, 11, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, 10, and twins Knox Jolie-Pitt and Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, 8.

E! News reported at the time that they also questioned other witnesses like the flight crew that was on the private plane during the alleged incident.

At this point, Pitt has only seen his children twice since Jolie filed for divorce on Sept. 19, though son Maddox was notably missing. According to an insider, he was "mad at his dad." 

Earlier this month, both A-listers made their way back into the spotlight after the family matter.

Jolie appeared in a video for the International Criminal Court in support of a recent policy regarding children.

"Successful prosecution and new legal benchmark, whether at the ICC or elsewhere is part of the long and vital generational effort," she was shown explaining. "That is the light in which I believe the court's new policy on children should be seen."

Meanwhile, Pitt attended a red carpet for his film Allied and stopped to answer a few of his fans' questions.

"Everyone has been really kind out here," he shared before adding, "It's really nice to have all the support."
