Angelina Jolie Claims Brad Pitt Has Paid No Child Support

News, "Brad and Angelina are not even close to settling their divorce".

The ongoing saga of the Brangelina split is back in the headlines after Angelina Jolie's attorneys filed a complaint that claims Brad Pitt has paid no "meaningful" child support since the couple announced their intention to divorce almost two years ago. "As of present, [Pitt] has paid no meaningful child support since separation", Jolie's attorney Samantha Bley DeJean wrote in a legal briefing obtained by NBC News.

"[Pitt] has a statutory duty to pay child support".

Reps for Pitt did not immediately return InStyle's request for comment.

A source close to the star tells EXCLUSIVELY that Brad has done everything to fulfill his obligations to his kids, but that Angie keeps changing the rules.

Angelina Jolie has reportedly accused her estranged husband, Brad Pitt, of shirking child support payments.

Jolie, 42, filed for divorce in September 2016, citing irreconcilable differences.

This claim comes as a shock considering how long and hard the 54-year-old actor has fought for partial custody of his children-in fact, it's the main reason the parents of six have yet to finalize their divorce.

But a source with knowledge of the case has claimed the court filing by the 43-year-old "Maleficent" actress was done in order to get their marriage "dissolved" quickly.

The arrangement for child support was allegedly informal, per the TMZ report, but Jolie claims that Pitt has not even lived up to those informal expectations.

Additionally, the documents state that Jolie must provide Pitt with personal cell phone numbers for each child and allow him to text them whenever he wants.

According to the latest report by TMZ, Pitt has not paid "meaningful child support" since he and Jolie officially separated, though it is not clarified what exactly he was expected to do for child support.

But a source claims to ET that Jolie's latest move is in retaliation over the actress being ordered by a judge in June to help fix her children's relationship with Pitt.

It is unknown at this time what - if any - informal agreement Jolie and Pitt had arrived at prior to this filing.

Jolie's team is asking for a status conference to address the issue.
