Angelina Jolie claims Brad Pitt hasn't paid 'meaningful child support' since split as she begs judge to end marriage

The Maleficent star, 43, has filed new legal documents in her messy split with the Benjamin Button actor, 54, who she separated from back in 2016.

Her lawyer has now asked their judge to issue a final divorce decree this year and make her a single woman again.

The documents also claim that Pitt has not paid “meaningful child support” since their separation and has not even lived up to an “informal arrangement” they set up.

She wants the judge to issue a formal child support order on her behalf.

Her lawyer Samantha Bley DeJean wrote in the new court filing said: "(Pitt) has a duty to pay child support. As of present, (Pitt) has paid no meaningful child support since separation.


“The payment of the children's expenses have not been regularly sustained by (Pitt) for over a year and a half.”

Under California law, each parent is responsible for providing for the children based upon the agreement reached between the couple.

Jolie's lawyers are now asking to appear before the judge to schedule a status conference in the case to address the financial issue amid the couple’s separation.

The warring pair Jolie split in September 2016, citing irreconcilable differences.

The Oscar-winning actress had six children with her actor husband, ranging in age from nine to 16.


 

The breakup between the couple – once known by fans as “Brangelina” – saw Pitt accused of being rough with one of his children on a private plane that was en route from Europe to LA.

The incident was reported to authorities but the FBI and Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services both cleared Pitt of any wrongdoing.

Pitt’s lawyers have alleged in court documents Jolie and her attorneys have compromised the children’s privacy through court filings in a bid to undercut him.
