Angelina Jolie says Brad Pitt not paying 'meaningful' child support

A source told Us Weekly, "Brad has fulfilled all of his commitments under any agreements with Angelina".

According to a new report from NBC News, Jolie will seek a court order to force Pitt to pay.

In the court documents filed by Jolie, the actor claimed that Pitt has not paid any "meaningful" child support for their six children - Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox, and Vivienne - in a year and a half and has asked the court to make him pay.

The declarations came in a request for a case-management hearing filed Tuesday by Jolie Pitt's attorneys in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's divorce proceedings have taken yet another nasty turn.

The order outlined a shared custody schedule for the summer in which the children would split their time between Los Angeles and London, with Jolie maintaining primary physical custody.

The ex-couple has six children together, three of whom were adopted internationally. In June, however, the court ordered Jolie to help fix Pitt's relationships with his children, as "not having a relationship with their father is harmful to them".

TMZ's sources also said that Angelina's claim that Brad hasn't paid "meaningful" child support is "a joke" and insist proof will be presented that contradicts what's in her lawyer's latest filing. In the June court documents, it showed that Angelina was at risk of losing full custody of her children if, depending on the circumstances, the children remained closed off to their dad.

Pitt was later provided with cell phone numbers for each child, in order to text and call them without Jolie's supervision. The actors are "at an impasse", the source added, so there will be "no settlement or resolution anytime soon". The actress' spokesperson said Angelina wants to provide closure to their relationship and move forward to the next stage of their lives and be co-parents to the children.

The children are now living with Jolie in London, where she is filming Maleficent 2.
