Brad Pitt And Angelina Jolie Latest News: Actor Cleared Of Child Abuse Allegations, Investigation Of DCSF Over
Brad Pitt might be able to see his children more and possibly have joint physical custody over his six children with Angelina Jolie after the investigation of the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services (DCSF) came to an end and he has been cleared of the child abuse allegations. Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt in September.
The DCSF got involved in the divorce case of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie as it was reported that the reason for the split was because of the verbal and physical abuse that Brad Pitt inflicted to their oldest son, Maddox, 15. USA Today reported that the child abuse alleged incident took place when they were on their way home to Los Angeles via a private plane coming from France.
DCFS has not commented on the conclusion but a source confirmed the reports about Brad Pitt being cleared of the child abuse allegations. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have a total of six children together, whose ages range from 8 to 15 years old.
E! News also reported that a spokesperson for Angelina Jolie released a statement saying that the job of the DCFS is to make sure the children are in a safe and secure situation. Earlier this week, childcare professionals advised a legal agreement from both parties regarding the best interest of their six children.
The temporary agreement was that Angelina Jolie will still have physical custody over the kids and Brad Pitt will be allowed to visit them with the presence of a therapist. It is unclear until when this arrangement will be enforced. Last week, Brad Pitt filed for joint custody.
The source added, "...the DCFS is now satisfied the safeguards are put in place that will allow the children to heal." It is believed that if the joint physical custody would be granted, the parents will have a 50-50 time with their children.
The parents of the six children are yet to comment.
