Brad Pitt not paying meaningful child support: Angelina Jolie

"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", Mindy Nyby, spokesperson for Angelina Jolie told Access.

As reported by NBC News, Jolie's lawyer, Samantha Bley DeJean, is asserting that Pitt "has paid no meaningful child support since separation", specifically in over a year and a half.

Earlier this year the pair clashed over Angelina's wish to take the children to Europe whilst she was shooting Maleficent 2 - a move Pitt opposed.

The court prescribed an gradual increase in the amount of time the kids had with Pitt, saying, "It is critical that each of [the six] children have a healthy and strong relationship with their father and mother".

Jolie, 43, filed for divorce from Pitt, 54, in September 2016, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. As of present, [Pitt] has paid no meaningful child support since separation.

A source close to Pitt told CNN, "It is sad that someone would deliberately misrepresent the situation, especially after Brad has continued to fulfill his commitments".

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

Jolie, who underwent a double mastectomy and got her ovaries removed in 2013 to prevent an aggressive form of cancer that killed her mother, grandmother and aunt, also told Vanity Fair that she had developed Bell's palsy.

Actors Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie attend the premiere of "The Normal Heart" in New York, NY, U.S., May 12, 2014. "Hopefully both sides can come together and resolve this, and work it out for the sake of the children". The actors are "at an impasse", the source added, so there will be "no settlement or resolution anytime soon". Pitt, for his part, has previously and repeatedly expressed a desire to amicably co-parent his children with the Academy Award victor.
