Hollywood actor Brad Pitt has been cleared of child abuse allegations by authorities.
Entertainment Tonight confirmed the investigation by the Department of Child and Family Services had concluded, clearing the 52-year-old of wrongdoing.
A source told the outlet the investigation had been closed after no validation or proof of abuse had been found.
“It wasn’t clearly founded that there was any abuse by Pitt,” the source said.
A spokesperson for Angelina Jolie said the 41-year-old actress was “relieved” that the probe had ended.
“The job of the DCFS 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,” the statement read.
“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.”
