After several weeks of intense investigation, Brad Pitt has been cleared of abuse allegations by the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services.

On Wednesday DFCS determined that Brad did not commit child abuse during an argument on a private jet that ended with him making physical contact with his 15-year-old son Maddox. Officials interviewed Pitt and estranged wife Angelina Jolie, along with their six kids and witnesses on the plane, and now that this is over, it gives him a big advantage in his custody battle with Jolie.

Despite the recent custody agreement reached between the former couple, things will change, as that was only in place during the DCFS investigation. Angelina is asking for sole physical custody and Pitt has petitioned for joint custody, but TMZ reports California judges favor Pitt's position. A rep for Angelina told the site, "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."

Still, Jolie is reportedly hell bent on proving Pitt abused at least one of their kids, and if he doesn't drop his claim, she'll "present evidence to the divorce judge that Brad has committed abuse." Seeing as the DCFS investigation just wrapped, we're not sure how this is going to go down, but it's just as ugly now as it was when the A-list supercouple first announced their split...
