Angelina Jolie has filed a new court document claiming Brad Pitt isn’t contributing enough to help support their six children. In fact, Jolie claims Pitt hasn’t paid any “meaningful” child support at all during their ongoing year-and-a-half long split.
“[Pitt] has a duty to pay child support. As of present, [Pitt] has paid no meaningful child support since separation,” wrote Jolie’s attorney, Samantha Bley DeJean, in a two-page brief filed in Los Angeles Superior Court and obtained by NBC News.
“Given the informal arrangements around the payment of the children’s expenses have not been regularly sustained by [Pitt] for over a year and a half, [Jolie] intends to file an RFO [Request for Court Order] for the establishment of a retroactive child support order.”
Nowhere in the filing was it made clear how Jolie defines “meaningful.”
Under California law, each parent must provide financially for the children, but it is all to be based on agreement between the parents; it is unclear what agreement they’ve reached.
