The Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, who was looking into allegations against Brad Pitt’s abusive behavior towards his 15-year-old son, Maddox on the flight in mid-September, has cleared Pitt of all the allegations and has found no wrongdoing.
Angelina Jolie has now responded to the news of the findings of the child abuse investigation against her estranged husband. And it is rather surprising.
A representative for the 41-years-old actress said she is “relieved” the inquiry is over and that the custody arrangements in place will “allow the children to heal“.
The statement from Jolie‘s spokesperson read, “The job of the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services is to make sure the children are in a safe and secure situation. As we said earlier this week, childcare professionals encouraged a legal agreement accepted and signed by both sides that was in the best interest of the children. Angelina said from the beginning that she felt she had to take action for the health of the family and is relieved that after their 8-week involvement, the DCFS is now satisfied the safeguards are put in place that will allow the children to heal.”
The couple has six children, three children biological ones – daughter Shiloh, 10, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 8, and two adopted, Pax, 12, and Zahara, 11. Jolie also adopted Maddox, 15, before her relationship with Pitt. The actor eventually went on to adopt the kid as his own.
Custody of their six children has been the primary issue in their divorce. Jolie is seeking sole custody of the children, while Pitt is seeking joint custody.
