Angelina Jolie accuses Brad Pitt of not paying enough child support

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

Hollywood actor Angelina Jolie on Tuesday announced that she has made a decision to go ahead with her divorce with Brad Pitt and wants it finished by the end of 2018.

In a new court filing obtained by ET and filed on Tuesday, Jolie accused Pitt of not paying any "meaningful" child support for a year and a half, and said she's planning to get a court order mandating that he pay it. Her attorney has filed for the papers in the Los Angeles Superior Court stating that the two parties return to single status by the end of the year.

CNN has reached out to both Pitt and Jolie's representatives for comment.

Jolie, 43, filed for divorce from Pitt, 54, in September 2016, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split.

But sources close to Pitt said Jolie has been "extremely difficult" during the negotiations and that he had told her he'd had enough of the endless back-and-forth over the kids.

Angelina Jolie is reportedly accusing Brad Pitt of avoiding his child support payments based on their informal arrangement.

Initially, she sought sole physical custody of their six children, Maddox, 17; Pax, 14; Zahara, 13; Shiloh, 12; and twins Knox and Vivienne, 10, though Pitt later filed for joint custody. The documents say there was an "informal arrangement", but that Pitt has not met those arrangements.

"Respondent has a statutory duty to pay child support". Last week, Jolie's spokesperson denied to ET that Jolie was parting ways with Wasser after a TMZ report claimed that the attorney was quitting over internal conflicts with Jolie. Pitt, for his part, has previously and repeatedly expressed a desire to amicably co-parent his children with the Academy Award victor.

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