The claims prompted officials from both the FBI and the LA County Department of Children and Family Services to launch an investigation into allegations of child abuse.

On Tuesday, two FBI agents paid a visit to Jolie's home in Malibu, California, where they spent more than three hours interviewing the actress and her brood about the alleged plane dispute, according to TMZ.com.

The meeting, during which the Jolie-Pitt clan was asked to recall the incident step-by-step, was reportedly held to help officials determine whether the accusations warrant a full investigation.

Jolie currently has full physical custody of the kids, as agreed in a temporary deal last month (Sep16), although Pitt has been granted visitation.

He has reportedly enjoyed two visits with their children to date.

As part of the custody deal, which will be reviewed by DCFS representatives after October 20, both stars will undergo individual counselling, in addition to family sessions with their offspring, while the Inglourious Basterds actor will also submit to random drug and alcohol tests.

He recently volunteered for a similar test, which reportedly came back negative.
