The FBI is closing its investigation into Brad Pitt‘s incident with his son Maddox on the family’s private jet in September.

“In response to allegations made following a flight within the special aircraft jurisdiction of the United States which landed in Los Angeles carrying Mr. Brad Pitt and his children, the FBI has conducted a review of the circumstances and will not pursue further investigation. No charges have been filed in this matter,” the FBI said in a statement to PEOPLE.

Pitt was in Madrid, Spain today, where he and Marion Cotillard celebrated the premiere of their new WWII spy thriller Allied.

While the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) also concluded its investigation into the incident earlier this month with no findings of abuse, Pitt and Angelina Jolie remain in the midst of a complicated legal battle for custody of their six children. Pitt filed a response to Jolie’s divorce petition on Nov. 4 and asked to share joint physical and legal custody of Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. Jolie has requested sole physical custody, with visitation for Pitt.

Per a temporary recommendation by DCFS, for the past several weeks, the children have been living with Jolie, with supervised visitation for Pitt. But Pitt “has been very unhappy with the arrangement,” a source recently told PEOPLE. “He loves his kids and wants to spend more time with them.”
