Angelina Jolie Says Brad Pitt Hasn’t Paid ‘Meaningful’ Child Support

Angelina Jolie Says Brad Pitt Hasn’t Paid ‘Meaningful’ Child Support

The couple separated in September 2016 after two years of marriage and filed for divorce shortly after.

Shortly before Jolie's attorney filed the two-page brief in L.A. Tuesday, a source told E!

The Maleficent star's attorney, Samantha Bley DeJean, filed new legal papers in Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday, stating Jolie's intention to seek a court order forcing Pitt to pay a significant share of the costs of raising their six children.

After a period of relative peace, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's divorce has become a battleground once again.

Angelina Jolie on Tuesday sought to move forward with her long and sometimes bitter divorce from Brad Pitt, which has yet to be finalized after nearly two years.

Angelina Jolie has reportedly claimed that her estranged husband Brad Pitt has not paid any "meaningful" in the last 18 months, but sources claim the allegations are a publicity stunt to try and make him look bad.

"(Pitt) has a statutory duty to pay child support.

Quoting an insider, People magazine reported that the 54-year-old actor had in fact provided financial support in an amount 'far more than any informal agreement would stipulate and far more than any judge would have ordered paid if there had been such an order'.

A source familiar with the situation told InStyle, "Brad fulfills his commitments".

Page Six was not immediately able to reach either of the actor's reps for comment.

Jolie, who underwent a double mastectomy and got her ovaries removed in 2013 to prevent an aggressive form of cancer that killed her mother, grandmother and aunt, also told Vanity Fair that she had developed Bell's palsy.

It is unknown at this time what - if any - informal agreement Jolie and Pitt had arrived at prior to this filing.

The divorce filing, citing irreconcilable differences, triggered a bitter custody dispute during which Pitt was investigated and cleared of child abuse.
