Angelina Jolie wants divorce finalised by this year, claims Brad Pitt is shirking child support
Reuters: Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie on Tuesday (Aug 7) sought to move forward with her long and sometimes bitter divorce from fellow actor Brad Pitt, which has yet to be finalised after almost two years.
Jolie’s attorney filed papers in Los Angeles Superior Court saying the actress wanted a judgment “returning the parties to single status during calendar year 2018”.
The document also said that Pitt has “paid no meaningful child support since separation” and said that although informal arrangements had been made with him, payments “had not been regularly sustained”.Jolie filed for divorce in September 2016, ending two years of marriage and a 10-year romance that had made the pair one of Hollywood’s most glamorous and powerful couples.They have six children for whom she is seeking primary custody.
Mindy Nyby, a spokesman for the actress, said on Tuesday that the court filing was intended “to provide closure to the marriage in a way that clears a path towards the next stage of their lives and allows her and Brad to recommit as devoted co-parents to their children”.
Pitt’s representatives declined to comment.
