Angelina Jolie Claims Brad Pitt Has Not Paid 'Meaningful' Child Support

In June 2018, court documents were filed showing a bitter situation brewing between the pair as they battled over custody and time with their children, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 9-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.

Jolie, 43, filed for divorce from Pitt, 53, in 2016 after two years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences. "As of present, [Pitt] has paid no meaningful child support since separation", wrote Jolie's attorney, Samantha Bley DeJean, in a two-page brief filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.

The new court documents come after it was recently reported Jolie and Pitt, 53, are "not even close" to settling their divorce. A source familiar with the matter, who was not authorized to speak publicly, said that "Brad is someone who fulfills his commitments".

Angelina Jolie is seeking to have her divorce from Brad Pitt sped up, according to a new report.

In a new court filing obtained by ET and filed on Tuesday, Jolie accused Pitt of not paying any "meaningful" child support for a year and a half, and said she's planning to get a court order mandating that he pay it. "The motion today was just created to move that process forward on those issues, including financial disclosure and child support", a source close to Jolie explained to E!

The report comes soon after a TMZ story claimed that Jolie and Laura Wasser, another one of her attorneys, had parted ways.

A spokesperson for Jolie, Mindy Nyby, however, later denied the rumors, telling People, "The TMZ story is not true".

"Respondent has a statutory duty to pay child support". Financial documents are yet to be exchanged between the two since it is a routine for any divorce settlements around the world. "They are kind of at an impasse at this point because the focus has been on custody; nothing else has been hashed out yet". However, they normally reside in Los Angeles, where Pitt also lives.

CNN has reached out to both Pitt and Jolie's representatives for comment.
