Good news for Brad Pitt fans (read: basically everyone): the FBI's investigation (opens in new tab) of the actor is officially concluded. In case you've forgotten due to election-related memory loss, Pitt was accused of getting into an altercation with his son Maddox during a flight from France to Los Angeles—and because the alleged incident took place on a plane, the FBI had jurisdiction.

"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," the FBI said in a statement (opens in new tab). "No charges have been filed in this matter."

The Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services concluded their own investigation (opens in new tab) into Brad's behavior earlier this month, and it remains to be seen how this will affect Pitt's petition to share joint custody (opens in new tab) of his children with Angelina Jolie (who has requested sole custody).
