Angelina Jolie is reportedly accusing Brad Pitt of avoiding his child support payments based on their informal arrangement. Now, she’s filed divorce papers in court asking for the star to both pay child support and retroactively pay what he’s missed.
According to TMZ, Jolie filed legal documents asking a judge to issue a final divorce decree. She allegedly claims that Brad Pitt has not paid “meaningful child support” for their six children since their separation two years ago. The documents acknowledge that the duo had an “informal arrangement,” but that Pitt has not lived up to that agreement. As a result, she’s seeking formal child support as well as retroactive pay against him.
It’s unclear at this time how much money the “World War Z” star is on the hook for but, given the amount of children, it’s likely a lot. Jolie, 43, filed for divorce from Pitt, 54, in September of 2016 citing irreconcilable differences as the cause. Since then the split has been very public and, at times, very contentious.
According to E! News, the duo are keen to formally end their marriage, but they are focused on the custody battle above all else. As a result, the process does not seem to be taking big steps forward.
