Brad Pitt won't be charged by FBI

Brad Pitt will not be charged by the FBI after an investigation into an alleged altercation between him and his son Maddox.

The 'Allied' actor was said to have "got physical" in a row with his 15-year-old son on a private jet in September as the family headed back to the US from France, which supposedly prompted Angelina Jolie to file for divorce, but no further action will be taken.

FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said in a statement: "The FBI has conducted a review of the circumstances and will not pursue further investigation. No charges have been filed."

Angelina was said to have been questioned by the FBI in October over the alleged incident on the private plane.

Brad - who also has Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and eight-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, with the brunette beauty - is thought to be seeking joint custody of his kids.

The 41-year-old actress has primary custody of the children with Brad, 52, allowed to have supervised visits.

Last week, it was claimed he "stormed out" of a meeting with his brood and is concerned Angelina is trying to turn them against him.

Kris Herzog, a bodyguard who works for both the family and Angelina's father Jon Voight, recently admitted the actor's two supervised visits with his children have not gone well.

He said: "Brad is so angry. From what I've heard from Brad and Jon, even the kids are turning against him.

"He's alleging they won't even speak to him and they won't call him Daddy or Father.

"They've had two meetings with Los Angeles family services and in both none of the kids would talk to him.

"He stormed out of the second one really angry, it was the straw that broke the camel's back. This fight is going nuclear now."

Angelina filed for divorce from Brad in September following a 12-year relationship, two of which they were married.
