Angelina Jolie wants divorce finalized by end of 2018

Angelina Jolie wants divorce finalized by end of 2018”

After a period of relative peace, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's divorce has become a battleground once again.

Washington D.C.: In a court filing on Tuesday, Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie alleged that her former husband Brad Pitt has not paid any "meaningful" child support since their split in 2016. "As of present, [Pitt] has paid no meaningful child support since separation", Jolie's attorney, Samantha Bley DeJean, wrote in the documents, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court and obtained by NBC News on August 7.

"[Pitt] has a duty to pay child support".

Angelina Jolie's rep has been contacted for comment.

A source familiar with the situation told InStyle, "Brad fulfills his commitments". Per the filing, Jolie intends to file for retroactive child support.

The actress, 43, is shooting the sequel to Maleficent in London, while the actor, 54, is filming Once Upon a Time in Hollywood in L.A. Pitt has also spent time with at least five of his six children in the United Kingdom, after a judge ruled "not having a relationship with their father is harmful".

Nearly two years after the Hollywood power couple separated, Jolie is trying to kickstart the process so that it can be finalised by the end of the year.

But a source with knowledge of the case has claimed the court filing by the 43-year-old "Maleficent" actress was done in order to get their marriage "dissolved" quickly.

Additionally, the documents state that Jolie must provide Pitt with personal cell phone numbers for each child and allow him to text them whenever he wants.

Now Pitt pals are fuming to Page Six that the "Seven" star has in fact been forking over hundreds of thousands a month - and that Jolie is just trying to smear her ex by claiming he's a "deadbeat dad".

Their summer custody agreement was finalized in mid-June, detailing a very specific per-hour outline of time in which five of their six kids were to spend with Pitt-the eldest child Maddox, 17, was given the agency to choose how much time he'd spend with each parent.

Pitt and Jolie also have three children together, biologically: their daughter Shiloh was born in 2006, and their twins Knox and Vivienne were born in 2008.
