Angelina Jolie accuses Brad Pitt of failing to pay 'meaningful' child support

  • Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's Kids Through the Years

Sources close to Pitt told Page Six that Jolie made the court filing as part of a smear campaign to tarnish her estranged husband's reputation after he chose to re-start the formal divorce process. "As of present, [Pitt] has paid no meaningful child support since separation", Jolie's attorney Samantha Bley DeJean wrote in a legal briefing obtained by NBC News.

On Aug. 7, one of Angelina's new lawyers filed court papers claiming that Brad has failed to pay "meaningful child support" for their six children over the almost two years that the actress and Brad have been separated.

Jolie claims there was an "informal agreement" for child support, but the Fight Club actor has not honored it.

Jolie's spokesperson, Mindy Nyby, tells ET, "The aim of Angelina's routine court filing is to provide closure to the marriage in a way that clears a path toward the next stage of their lives and allows her and Brad to recommit as devoted co-parents to their children". He was also accused and then acquitted of child abuse - the initial cause of their separation back in 2016.

The court filing did not specify what "meaningful" support is, but a spokesman for Pitt says that the 54-year-old actor has fulfilled all of his commitments.

Access has reached out to reps for both Brad Pitt for comment.

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.

However, that hasn't prevented some information from leaking.

People who know Brad Pitt are denying his ex Angelina Jolie's new claims that he's shirked his financial obligations to their kids.

Earlier this week, the news broke that Jolie's lawyer, Laura Wasser, was ready to quit the case because of how hard the Oscar victor has been to work with. Jolie wants the judge to issue a formal child support order, making it retroactive.

Jolie's attorney filed papers in Los Angeles Superior Court saying the actress wanted a judgment "returning the parties to single status during calendar year 2018".
