(Newser) – Brad Pitt saw son Maddox on Wednesday, their first time coming face-to-face since the incident aboard a private jet last month during which Pitt may or may not have gotten physical with the 15-year-old. Sources tell TMZ Pitt and the teen met with a therapist present; the therapist hadn't "felt the timing was right" until Wednesday. Pitt had already reunited with the rest of his children (on two separate occasions, People reports) prior to his meeting with Maddox, a meeting TMZ refers to as a "turning point." Sources previously told Us Maddox was refusing to see Pitt and "doesn't really see himself as Brad's son."

Also this week, Angelina Jolie and the couple's children were interviewed by the FBI Tuesday as part of their fact-finding mission (not an official investigation, and there likely won't be one, sources tell TMZ) into the plane incident. The LA County Department of Children and Family Services is still investigating the plane incident, and prior reports have indicated that the temporary custody plan created by DCFS (in which Jolie has temporary physical custody of the kids while Pitt only gets visitation) expires Thursday. It's not clear what the next step is, but sources tell TMZ Jolie's goal is to be able to co-parent with Pitt successfully. (Read more Brad Pitt stories.)
