Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s long-winded court battle is heating up! Jolie and her attorney, Samantha Bley DeJean have filed new court documents noting Pitt has not paid any child support towards their six kids since their split in September 2016. Jolie is now requesting the court enforce Pitt to pay, as she plans to file a request for court order. The court document reads,
Given that 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 a court order] for the establishment of a retroactive child support order.
According to Jolie, Pitt is obligated to help her support their children. The documents also state,
[Pitt] has a statutory duty to pay child support. As of present, [Pitt] has paid no meaningful child support since separation.
