The Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services has cleared Brad Pitt of child abuse allegations. According to TMZ, the Department concluded on Wednesday that it would close the investigation of the actor after learning that he did not commit child abuse during an argument with his son Maddox in September. Pitt was being investigated after his estranged wife Angelina Jolie claimed that he struck Maddox during an altercation on a private airplane back on September 14. Jolie, who filed for divorce from Pitt in September after two years of marriage, is seeking full custody. However, Pitt responded by filing for joint custody last week.
