Angelina Jolie claims Brad Pitt is not paying enough child support

A source familiar with the situation told InStyle, "Brad fulfills his commitments".

Angelina Jolie is claiming in court documents obtained by CNN that Brad Pitt is not pulling his weight when it comes to child support for their six children. "As of present, [Pitt] has paid no meaningful child support since separation", Jolie's attorney, Samantha Bley DeJean, wrote in a two-page brief filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Angelina Jolie's rep has been contacted for comment.

The process has been going on for the last two years after the couple split and Angelina filed for divorce in September 2016.

The document also said that Pitt had "paid no meaningful child support since separation" and said that although informal arrangements had been made with him, payments "had not been regularly sustained".

Pitt and Jolie have three sons and three daughters, ages 17 and under.

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. The court filing is the latest development in Jolie and Pitt's hard-fought custody battle over their six children - 16-year-old Maddox, 14-year-old Pax, 13-year-old Zahara, 12-year-old Shiloh and 10-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne - that's been ongoing since their split in November 2016 after two years of marriage. "Hopefully both sides can come together and resolve this, and work it out for the sake of the children". "The motion today was just created to move that process forward on those issues, including financial disclosure and child support", a source close to Jolie explained to E! The actors are "at an impasse", the source added, so there will be "no settlement or resolution anytime soon".

Angelina's spokesperson Mindy Nyby denied earlier claims by TMZ that her lawyer Laura Wasser, who has been with her since filing for divorce from Brad, quit because the Maleficent actress was being 'hostile'.
