Angelina Jolie is ready for her marriage to Brad Pitt to be over! The star has reportedly demanded the court speed up their divorce and – shockingly – she’s allegedly accusing him of not paying child support!
Angelina Jolie, 43, is done with being married to Brad Pitt, 54, and she wants their divorce to be finalized as soon as possible, according to a new report. The mom-of-six has allegedly filed paperwork asking the judge to make their split official, TMZ is claiming. Even worse, the actress is reportedly alleging that the heartthrob is not paying “meaningful child support.” In the court documents her lawyer also reportedly alleges that the Fight Club actor hasn’t complied with the “informal arrangement” that they are said to have in place. (But a source familiar with the situation strongly denies this and tells HollywoodLife that “Brad fulfills his commitments.”) Ironically, despite these claims that she’s upset, when she originally filed for divorce in 2016, Angelina did not request child support, as court documents obtained by HollywoodLife at the time prove.
The breakdown of the relationship between the former Mr. & Mrs. Smith stars has turned nastier, nearly two years after they separated. It has also been claimed that Angelina wants the judge to issue a formal child support order and she allegedly wants it to be made retroactive. This bombshell news comes days after it was reported that Angelina’s lawyer Laura Wasser wants to quit because the star is allegedly difficult to work with.
As fans of the couple know, during their 12-year relationship they had a total of six children between them – Maddox, 17, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12. and 10-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. And it’s the custody arrangement, which is reportedly proving to be a stickler for the former couple. On June 12 court documents obtained by Us Weekly reportedly claimed that Angelina risked losing physical custody if she didn’t allow the kids to have a good relationship with their dad. A temporary custody arrangement was then reportedly put in place allowing the children to spend more time with their father after the Superior Court of Los Angeles County ruled that “not having a relationship with their father is harmful to them,” and that “it is critical that each of them have a healthy and strong relationship” with both parents.
California divorce attorney Kelly Chang Rickert told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY about the case that – if reports that Angelina is being difficult are true – it doesn’t bode well for her. Rickert said: “What people don’t understand is that judges are more likely to award custody to the party that shares. The most awful example of parenting in family court is a ‘gatekeeper’ – someone that refuses to allow the other parent to see the children. Angelina has already been warned. Continuing the fight will fare very badly for her.”
HollywoodLife has reached out to both Angelina and Brad’s reps for comments in the latest development of this case.
