Angelina Jolie accuses Brad Pitt of evading child support

Share

According to sources familiar with the situation, TMZ explains, Brad and Angelina indeed had an informal agreement.

What's more, those close to Pitt believe that Jolie only filed the new papers as a warning shot after he told her that he wanted to restart the formal divorce process.

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. "As of present, [Pitt] has paid no meaningful child support since separation", Jolie's attorney, Samantha Bley DeJean, wrote in a two-page brief filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's divorce proceedings have taken yet another nasty turn.

"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] has a duty to pay child support". The couple have six children together and Angelina is also looking to get primary custody of all of them with the divorce.

In the court documents obtained by Access on Monday, Angelina requested a case management conference to address the lack of child support paid by Pitt.

Angelina Jolie has reportedly claimed that her estranged husband Brad Pitt has not paid any "meaningful" in the last 18 months, but sources claim the allegations are a publicity stunt to try and make him look bad.

"The dissolution of the marriage will help everyone to move forward as a family and work together as co-parents, which is something she is is fully committed to", the source continues.

The report comes soon after a TMZ story claimed that Jolie and Laura Wasser, another one of her attorneys, had parted ways.

In June, a spokesperson for Jolie also rebuked the "misleading leak" of the court documents detailing her and Pitt's new custody agreement.
