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

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

Angelina intends on filing a request for a court order for the establishment of a retroactive child support order.

Jolie filed papers Tuesday claiming that Pitt has not paid "meaningful child support" for their six kids since their split two years ago. "As of present, (Pitt) has paid no meaningful child support since separation".

The judge also ordered that Jolie arrange a phone call "with her kids and their doctors" to confirm to them directly that they are safe with Pitt.

Jolie was granted physical custody of all six children in a December 2016 custody agreement, but last month, she was ordered by a judge to help fix the children's relationship with their father. It's not been made clear what agreement they previously reached, if any, regarding child support.

They add: 'There will be no settlement or resolution anytime soon.

The brood is now living in London with Jolie as she films Maleficent 2, while Pitt has spent his court-ordered time with the kids in London and Los Angeles, where he is shooting Quentin Tarantino's new movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. The actor was later cleared of all charges, while Jolie still retains full custody of their children.

Jolie wants the judge in charge of their case to issue formal child support orders retroactively against him.

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.

Jolie's net worth has been estimated at $160 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth and in 2014, she was ranked 74th highest-earning celebrity by Forbes.

Pitt has kept a low profile in the past two years, while Jolie has recently been filming a sequel to fairytale drama Maleficent in London and directed a 2017 film about the 1970s Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia in which more than one million people died.

Nearly two years after the Hollywood power couple separated, Jolie is trying to kickstart the process so that it can be finalised by the end of the year.

Jolie is also asking that the divorce be finalized this year. And as I said, we are and forever will be a family.
