The FBI is not expected to reopen the investigation into Brad Pitt after an explosive report was uncovered this week, according to a friend of the actor.
“The statute of limitations is long gone and they’ve looked at all the information available. Nothing new here. At the time, they investigated all of Angelina’s allegations and filed no charges,” the source said.
“The FBI has thoroughly investigated the incident, there is no chance they will reopen the case. It’s all a concerted effort to smear Brad.”
An FBI spokesman said it could not comment on the case.
The friend pointed out that although Jolie shared the same details from the FBI report in her ongoing custody case against Pitt, a judge still gave Pitt 50/50 custody of their children.
The report, revealed this week, included allegations of abuse of Brad Pitt by then-wife Angelina Jolie. Splash
The Oscar-winner, 47, claimed to the FBI in 2016 that her then-husband Pitt, 58, left her with bruises after drunkenly pushing her onto a private jet, leaving their six children extremely upset.
The friend told Page Six that Jolie referred the star’s alleged actions on the plane to the judge overseeing her custody case.
The friend said: “Angelina’s claims were made in at least two different legal contexts: the incident on the plane and then again during a lengthy custody case. In one case, no charges were filed and in another, Brad was awarded 50/50 custody.”

The high-profile couple have been at war over their six children for six years since Jolie filed for divorce in September 2016.
Though officially divorced, the actors are still embroiled in a custody battle over their teenage children: Zahara, 17; Shilo, 16; and twins Vivienne and Knox, 14. Sons Maddox and Pax are 21 and 18, respectively.

As reported by Page Six, Jolie claimed in the report, which was released this week, that Pitt yelled at her, “You’re making the hell out of this family,” and said one of their kids was like a “f–king Columbine kid,” on board a flight from Nice, France, to the United States in September 2016. The actress filed for divorce four days after the incident.
The Pitt friend said: “This is six year old stuff that Angelina presented at the custody hearing. This is Angelina’s six-year campaign to discredit Brad.

“It’s really just Angelina’s version of events. She claims that happened…
“These allegations were made at the custody hearing and the judge obviously didn’t believe her or Brad would never have been awarded joint custody.”
Pitt and Jolie representatives were unavailable for comment.
