The FBI says it has "conducted a review of the circumstances and will not pursue further investigation."

The FBI has closed its abuse investigation on Brad Pitt with no charges. 

"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," the FBI said Tuesday in a statement.

The investigation covered an alleged incident with Pitt and his son Maddox while flying to Los Angeles in September. The Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services also cleared Pitt of charges in its child services investigation, finding that Pitt was not abusive toward his son. 

Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt in September, citing irreconcilable differences, and her lawyer released a statement the following day saying she came to the decision "for the health of the family." The couple was married a little more than two years. 

The couple reached a custody agreement regarding their six children earlier this month, which calls for the children to remain in Jolie's custody, with Pitt to continue to receive "therapeutic visits" with his children.

Jolie and Pitt married in August 2014 after a nearly 10-year relationship. The couple, together since 2005, made their engagement official in 2012. Earlier that year, Pitt told The Hollywood Reporter that he and Jolie did hope to get married, for the sake of their children.

Pitt previously was married to Jennifer Aniston for five years. Jolie previously was married to Jonny Lee Miller and then Billy Bob Thornton. 

Pitt will next be seen in the Robert Zemeckis film Allied, which opens in theaters Wednesday. He also is a producer on The Lost City of Z, starring Charlie Hunnam, and is an executive producer on Moonlight, which just received six nominations for the 2017 Independent Spirit Awards.
