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

Share

Angelina Jolie has reached a new low in her court battle with estranged husband Brad Pitt after accusing the actor of failing to pay "meaningful" child support.

As reported by E Online, in a two-page brief, which was filed in L.A. Superior Court and obtained by NBC News, Angelina's attorney wrote that the actress plans to request a court order for the establishment of a retroactive child support order. It's not been made clear what agreement they previously reached, if any, regarding child support.

The arrangement for child support was allegedly informal, per the TMZ report, but Jolie claims that Pitt has not even lived up to those informal expectations. Their source called Angelina's deadbeat dad allegations a "joke" and that proof will surface that Brad has been paying her and that her accusations otherwise are totally false.

The ex-couple has six children together, three of whom were adopted internationally.

The judge warned Jolie directly, "If the minor children remain closed down to their father and depending on the circumstances surrounding this condition, it may result in a reduction of the time they spend with [Jolie] and may result in the Court ordering primary physical custody to [Pitt]".

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

Jolie wants the judge in charge of their case to issue formal child support orders retroactively against him. The same site puts Pitt's net worth at $240 million.

However, given the history of child support payments between celebrities, it's likely that Pitt would have to pay a substantial amount each year.

Reps for Pitt declined to comment and Jolie's didn't get back to us.

Jolie filed for divorce in September 2016, ending two years or marriage and a 10-year romance that had made the pair one of Hollywood's most glamorous and powerful couples.

In the filing, Jolie's lawyers requested to appear before a judge to schedule a status conference to address the financial issue.

Jolie is also asking that the divorce be finalized this year.
