Actor Brad Pitt has been cleared of allegations of child abuse by the Los Angles Country Department of Children and Family Services, reports E! News.
The investigation ended earlier today and was initially undertaken in responded to an incident involving Pitt's eldest son Maddox on a private airplane in September of this year.
Pitt is currently fighting for joint custody of his and Angelina Jolie's six children.
Pitt has had visitation with his children under terms agreed upon by the former couple. Jolie Pitt's representatives said Monday that an agreement on custody had been reached, although a final agreement will be part of the couple's divorce judgment when it is entered.
California law favors joint custody, although details about custody arrangements are rarely made public in celebrity divorce cases.
Much was also made of Pitt appearing publicly for the first time in a while.
And, just like everything else this election season, the story was linked to politics.
