Brad Pitt Breaks Silence After Being Cleared of Child Abuse Allegations

Brad Pitt has made his first public appearance after being cleared of any allegations of child abuse.

At the recent premiere for his film Allied, Brad thanked his fans for their support during his divorce from Angelina Jolie. 

“It’s really sweet, everyone has been really kind out here. It’s really nice to have all the support,” he told E! News.

Brad walked the red carpet alongside his co-star, Marion Cotillard, who was forced to defend herself earlier this year against rumours she and Brad were having an affair.

Meanwhile, Angelina has made her first statement following the closure of child abuse investigations into her husband.

Los Angeles' Department of Children and Family Services began investigating Brad after witnesses claimed he abused his 15-year-old son, Maddox, at an airport earlier this year.

Brad was recently cleared of any allegations of child abuse.

"The job of the DCFS is to make sure the children are in a safe and secure situation," Ange's spokesperson said in a statement.

"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. 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."

Brad and Ange recently reached an agreement in which she would have physical custody of their children, with Brad receiving monitored visitation rights.

However, Daily Mail Online reports the couple still plan to fight this agreement, with Brad pursuing a joint physical and legal custody agreement, while Ange wants sole custody.

The couple has six children: Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, Vivienne and Knox, both eight.

Angelina announced the pair's divorce in September this year, after two years of marriage and several years of dating.
