Angelina Jolie accuses Brad Pitt of evading child support

Angelina Jolie has reportedly accused her estranged husband Brad Pitt of shirking child support payments

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's divorce proceedings have taken another turn.

Angelina Jolie Pitt says she wants her divorce from Brad Pitt finalised before the end of the year.

Jolie's attorneys claimed in the filing that the former couple had "informal arrangements" for the payment of the children's expenses, but stated that Pitt had not adhered to those guidelines.

"This happened because Brad became fed up and said he wanted to start the formal process of divorce again and filed papers to do that", one source told Page Six.

In a new court filing obtained by ET and filed on Tuesday, Jolie accused Pitt of not paying any "meaningful" child support for a year and a half, and said she's planning to get a court order mandating that he pay it. The constraints of "meaningful" support were not outlined in a brief filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court. The two have six children - Maddox, Shiloh, Pax, Vivienne, Zahara and Knox - for whom she is seeking primary custody.

China says tariff threat against US 'justified'
These new tariffs would affect about 38% of all American exports to China, which are worth about $170 billion in total. Washington suggested the rate on the proposed extra tariffs could be increased from 10 to 25 per cent.

The couple separated in September 2016 after two years of marriage and filed for divorce shortly after.

But a source claims to ET that Jolie's latest move is in retaliation over the actress being ordered by a judge in June to help fix her children's relationship with Pitt.

Brad has paid "far more than any informal agreement would stipulate and far more than any judge would have ordered paid if there had been such an order", according to People. A representative for Pitt did not immediately return a request for comment.

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".

But sources close to Pitt said Jolie has been "extremely difficult" during the negotiations and that he had told her he'd had enough of the endless back-and-forth over the kids.
