Angelina Jolie Claims Brad Pitt Has Paid No Child Support

Angelina Jolie Claims Brad Pitt Has Paid No Child Support

So, she wants the judge to issue a retroactive formal order of child support against Pitt to force him to pay up. TMZ is reporting that before they settle the child custody issue, Jolie is asking the judge in her divorce case to end the marriage immediately, so she can be single again.

It comes amid reports from TMZ, that allege Ange filed documents that stated Pitt has not paid "meaningful child support" since they first separated nearly two years ago.

DeJean goes on to state that Jolie would like the court to have Pitt pay her the money she is owed. Among them: a visitation schedule was determined for the summer, and Jolie was ordered to provide Pitt with the children's cell phone numbers and arrange a phone call for the kids and their doctors to explain that "the court has determined that each of them are safe with their father". "As of present, [Pitt] has paid no meaningful child support since separation", Jolie's attorney, Samantha Bley DeJean, wrote in a two-page brief filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.

"[Pitt] has a statutory duty to pay child support".

Brad Pitt's friends have rallied around the actor following claims he has not been paying "meaningful child support" to his estranged wife, Angelina Jolie. He was also accused and then acquitted of child abuse - the initial cause of their separation back in 2016.

A source familiar with the matter, who was not authorized to speak publicly, said that "Brad is someone who fulfills his commitments".

It's unclear, however, what "meaningful" support means in this context, as their "informal" agreement, as her lawyer describes, has yet to be made public.

But a source claims to ET that Jolie's latest move is in retaliation over the actress being ordered by a judge in June to help fix her children's relationship with Pitt.

Pitt's spokesperson has yet to respond to the allegations, which emerge days after Jolie's representative, Mindy Nyby, denied reports suggesting the actress' main attorney, Laura Wasser, had quit over "internal conflicts" regarding the case.

Pitt adopted Jolie's other adoptive son, Pax, two years earlier, due to local adoption laws that allowed it to be an easier process.
