Brad Pitt will not face charges from the FBI regarding an incident that occurred on his family’s private plane in September.

“In response to allegations made following a flight... carrying Mr. Brad Pitt and his children, the FBI has conducted a review of the circumstances and will not pursue further investigation,” the FBI said in a statement. “No charges have been filed in this matter.”

The Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) also ended their investigation earlier this month. “It was a full and thorough investigation and the determination has been made that no charges should be brought,” a source told People magazine.

Child abuse allegations against Pitt surfaced in September after the 52-year-old actor was involved in an altercation with his eldest son, Maddox, aboard a plane. According to TMZ, Pitt allegedly got “verbally abusive” and “physical.” The incident was then reported by an anonymous individual on the tarmac.

Pitt’s wife, Angelina Jolie, filed for divorce a few days after the incident asking for sole physical custody of their six children – Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne and Knox – and for Pitt to be given visitation.

While the former couple reached a custody agreement earlier this month which gives Jolie sole custody of the children, Pitt is still seeking joint legal and physical custody.
