Angelina Jolie has released a statement after ex Brad Pitt has been cleared of child abuse allegations.

Angelina has confirmed that she had wanted to take action against her ex to protect her six children and is now hoping the whole family can move forward after accepting the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services’ conclusion, reports The Mirror.

In statement to TMZ, a representative for the actress said: “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 representative also confirmed that Angelina and Brad have reached an agreement where Angelina reportedly has primary custody of their children, while Brad will have supervised visits.

The L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services has now decided to close the investigation, which involved an alleged incident that occurred on a private jet in September between Brad and his eldest son Maddox, reports TMZ.

The former couple, who have six children – Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and eight-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne – have agreed they will remain in the care of the 41-year-old actress.

Do you think this is a good outcome?

  • Why does Brad still have to have supervised visits seeing he was cleared of all charges, & the last article I read said he was going for joint custody. How come they aren’t drug testing Angelina?


  • Intersting situation,we fully don’t know the full story.


  • It says Brad Pitt has been cleared of child abuse allegations, but safeguards are put in place that will allow the children to heal and Brad has supervised visits ?
    Too little info to say something about it, but many divorces cause damage and require healing and restoration of hurt feelings, emotions and self-image.


  • wow I had no idea that this was part of the reason for the split! – I agree though there wasn’t enough info to decide if it was a good decision or not. It does sound like (from this article though) that Brad is ok with Angelina having all the kids – will wait for further info I think


  • There isn’t enough information about what Brad Pitt supposedly did in order to know whether this decision is a good one, however, I’m sure the authorities would have made this decision in the best interests of the children.


  • I wich that the couple and kids been good


  • It depends whether the abuse claims are true.
    It also depends whether he can provide them with a stable living location, environment and the physical quality time he can devote to them.
    Can they stay at the same school or will they constantly be moved or miss school for lengths of time.


  • Angelina Jolie is crazy. She needs psychiatric help. She was always going to chew Brad up and spit him out. Not really surprising that she used the kids.


  • I’m not sure! I’ve got very ambivalent feelings about this couple.


  • It must be serious if child protective services had to be involved. It does sound that Brad has anger issues, I’ve heard that there could be alcohol and drug issues too, not sure how true that is at this stage?
