Angelina Jolie has accused Brad Pitt of failing to support their kids financially amid the couple’s long-running divorce.
Attorneys for the 43-year-old actress alleged on Tuesday that the 54-year-old actor hasn’t paid ‘meaningful’ child support for 18 months, according to court documents seen by DailyMail.com.
‘As of present, [Pitt] has paid no meaningful child support since separation,’ Jolie’s attorney, Samantha Bley DeJean wrote.
‘Given the informal arrangements around the payment of the children’s expenses have not been regularly sustained by [Pitt] for over a year and a half, [Jolie] intends to file an RFO for the establishment of a retroactive child support order,’ the filing says.
The actress-turned-director alleged her third husband has not been meeting his financial obligations and has demanded the court force him to pay up.
She has asked the judge to arrange a meeting to discuss the issue.Pitt’s team are yet to formally respond.
A Pitt source familiar with the situation hinted to Dailymail.com that the actor would likely fight the allegations, commenting: ‘Brad always fulfills his commitments’.
Later on in the day a spokesperson for Angelina explained to People why the star had requested child support to ‘provide closure to the marriage in a way that clears a path toward the next stage of their lives and allows her and Brad to recommit as devoted co-parents to their children.’
Jolie’s net worth has been estimated at $160 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth and in 2014, she was ranked 74th highest-earning celebrity by Forbes. The same site puts Pitt’s net worth at $240million.
It’s been nearly two years since their shocking split was announced. Jolie filed for divorce in September 2016 citing irreconcilable differences.
