Angelina Jolie Explains Why She Requested Child Support from Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie is claiming in court documents obtained by CNN that Brad Pitt is not pulling his weight when it comes to child support for their six children.

Brad Pitt is hitting back hard at Angelina Jolie's accusations that he hasn't paid a dime in child support for their six kids. "As of present, [Pitt] has paid no meaningful child support since separation".

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".

The children have been living with Jolie with Pitt allowed visitation. The actor was later cleared of all charges, while Jolie still retains full custody of their children.

Their eldest son Maddox was adopted from Cambodia in 2002.

However, it's unclear whether Pitt's designated time with the children will be affected by the latest filing by Jolie's attorneys, amidst their allegations that Pitt has not lived up to his "informal agreements" for child support. The same site puts Pitt's net worth at $240 million.

Everton later announced the signing of 18-year-old goalkeeper Joao Virginia from Arsenal. "I said two times "no" because I am a Blue".

Jolie's net worth has been estimated at $160 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth and in 2014, she was ranked 74th highest-earning celebrity by Forbes. In the child custody hearing in June, the judge did not directly address Pitt's worth in relation to the child support he is allegedly supposed to pay 'informally'.

The incident was reported and Pitt was investigated by both the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, but was later cleared of wrongdoing.

The Moneyball actor said in an interview a year ago that he had quit drinking, was undergoing therapy, and that he and Jolie had made a decision to abandon "vitriolic hatred" and work together to sort out their issues.

Sources close to Pitt told Page Six that Jolie made the court filing as part of a smear campaign to tarnish her estranged husband's reputation after he chose to re-start the formal divorce process.

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. "And so that is how I am coping...to find a way through that somehow makes us stronger".
