Brad Pitt Hits Carpet as Abuse Allegations Get Closed

  Brad Pitt has officially been cleared of abuse allegations by the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services, according to TMZ.  The case, involving an incident between the 52-year-old actor and his 15-year-old son Maddox on a private jet, has officially been closed according to DCFS. Angelina has filed for primary physical custody of the 6 kids ... Brad has responded, saying saying he wants joint custody. Sources connected with Angelina say she feels the kids would be at risk if Brad gets joint custody, and if he doesn't drop his claim she'll present evidence to the divorce judge that Brad has committed abuse. And on the heels of all that news, Brad stepped out with costar Marion Cotillard at the Los Angeles premier of the WWII drama "Allied". A smiling Pitt posed for photos alongside his pregnant costar and happily signed autographs and took photos with fans along the carpet. He looked thin, but in good spirits. 3A37ECD700000578-3921816-image-a-1_1478748964904  Brad Pitt has officially been cleared of abuse allegations by the L.A.

And of course he occasionally picks up an oscar for his work ("Whiplash").   But it's true.  The guy who not only sells you insurance and plays the red M&M (seriously) is selling a house for $4,495,000.
