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

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

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's ongoing custody battle continues to intensify.

The former couple - who have children Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and nine-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox together - split in 2016, but are still at loggerheads in court over their divorce filing, with Angelina now alleging her former partner has paid "no meaningful child support" since their split nearly two years ago. As a result, she's seeking formal child support as well as retroactive pay against him.

Jolie Pitt filed for divorce almost two years ago and now has primary custody of their six children.

"From the start, Angelina has been focused on their health and needs, which is why it was so important that this last court hearing be conducted privately", the statement provided by her representative continued.

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.

Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt in September 2016, after two years of marriage and 12 years together, citing irreconcilable differences. A source close to the actor told the news outlet: "Brad has fulfilled his commitments".

She did not explain her actions, but her partner did speak a lot in court during the two-month trial, Spiegel reported. Several men, believed to be pedophile "clients" of the couple, have also been prosecuted in connection with the case.

"It's just been the hardest time, and we're just kind of coming up for air", she told the magazine, shortly after moving into a $25 million, six-bedroom, 10-bathroom home with her children in the Los Angeles neighborhood Los Feliz.

Pitt's attorney Lance Spiegel did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

According to the ruling set down by the judge in June, Pitt has been given a summer schedule to see his kids, minus the oldest child, Maddox, who has been deemed old enough to decide how much time he wants to spend with his adoptive father.

Pitt was later provided with cell phone numbers for each child, in order to text and call them without Jolie's supervision.

The "Moneyball" actor said in an interview past year that he had quit drinking, was undergoing therapy and that he and Jolie had made a decision to abandon "vitriolic hatred" and work together to sort out their issues.
