Angelina Jolie accuses Brad Pitt of evading child support

In a new court filing submitted on Tuesday, Angelina Jolie alleged that Brad Pitt hasn't paid any "meaningful" child support in over a year and a half.

Angelina Jolie is reportedly accusing Brad Pitt of avoiding his child support payments based on their informal arrangement. The constraints of "meaningful" support were not outlined in a brief filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court.

According to new reports, Brad Pitt was shocked by his ex Angelina Jolie's claims that he hasn't been paying child support.

In June, Pitt and Jolie's custody battle hit a fever pitch and a judge required Jolie tell their children that the "court has determined that not having a relationship with their father is harmful to them", that they are "safe with their father", and that having a healthy relationship with both parents is "critical".

Firefighters predict they'll fully contain the Mendocino Complex fire by August 15. Nine people have died as a result of other fires in the state since July, however.

This is a big deal, and another huge step deeper into the contentious, hateful divorce proceeding going down between these two right now.

Sources close to the matter told us that the Jolie-Pitt divorce - which had started off with an ugly slew of unfounded allegations against Pitt - had been put on hold and moved to a private judge so that the couple could sort out thorny custody issues.

Angelina's spokesperson Mindy Nyby denied earlier claims by TMZ that her lawyer Laura Wasser, who has been with her since filing for divorce from Brad, quit because the Maleficent actress was being 'hostile'. The TMZ story is not true. A source close to the actor told the news outlet: "Brad has fulfilled his commitments". Financial documents are yet to be exchanged between the two since it is a routine for any divorce settlements around the world. "They are kind of at an impasse at this point because the focus has been on custody; nothing else has been hashed out yet".

The 53-year-old was cleared by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and social workers and wants joint legal and physical custody of Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11, and twins Vivienne and Knox, nine, while Jolie is demanding sole guardianship.
