It’s been almost 2 years since the public fallout between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.
According to various reports, the custody battle between the former flames has only intensified. Yesterday (Tuesday, 7th August), the actress allegedly issued a court filing claiming that Pitt has not been pulling his weight when it comes to child support of their children.
“(Pitt) has a statutory duty to pay child support. As of present, (Pitt) has paid no meaningful child support since separation,” wrote Jolie’s attorney, Samantha Bley DeJean, in the legal documents obtained by CNN.
“Given that 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 (request for a court order) for the establishment of a retroactive child support order,” the documents state.
Back in June, Jolie and Pitt agreed on a temporary settlement for the actor to have custody of his 5 children and spend time with them. The custody excludes “Maddox since he is 16 and allowed to choose how he spends his time with either parent”, reports E! News.
“The aim of Angelina’s routine court filing is to promote 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 spokeswoman, Mindy Nyby, was quoted as saying.
Jolie and Pitt separated in 2016 after 2 years of marriage.
