Brad Pitt Accused Of Being Deadbeat Dad; Angelina Jolie Takes Him To Court

Angelina Jolie filed papers with court on Tuesday alleging that her estranged husband hasn't paid any 'meaningful' child support since the couple split up in 2016. Thus far, the arrangements for child support have been 'informal', according to court documents, but now Jolie is calling for a support order.

"[Pitt] has a duty to pay child support. As of present, [Pitt] has paid no meaningful child support since separation," read the papers, written by Jolie's attorney, Samantha Bley Dejean. "Given 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 for the establishment of a retroactive child support order."

RFO stands for 'request for a court order'.

The amount Pitt may have paid has not been revealed, and Pitt has not commented on the filing.

Pitt and Jolie's separation has been tumultuous from the start. The divorce is still pending, and the battle over children has gotten heated at times. This new court filing may mean things have been heating up again.

The couple met when they played a married couple in the film 'Mr. & Mrs. Smith' back in 2005, when Pitt was married to actress Jennifer Aniston. Pitt and Aniston had been Hollywood’s golden couple, with him becoming one of the top-earning box office stars, and her on the wildly popular sit-com, ‘Friends’.

Both Pitt and Jolie dismissed rumors of the affair, but soon after, Pitt and Aniston were divorced. One rumor swirling around Pitt and Aniston was that he was eager to start a family, and she did not desire children.

Within a year, Pitt had adopted Jolie's two adopted children, and they were expecting their first natural child together. Though they did not get legally married at the time, they went on to have six children in total-- three natural and three adopted.

The children were all given the surname ‘Jolie-Pitt’, and the large family was often spotted together. Pitt and Jolie appeared to be very hands-on, involved parents, though they did their best to keep their personal lives out of the public eye.

For twelve years, they were known as 'Brangelina', and considered one of the most beautiful and powerful couples in the world. They were legally married in 2014, but in hindsight it seems it was just the beginning of the end for them. Things went downhill quickly and their split was so sudden it was a shock even for those who didn’t think the relationship would last.

In September of 2016, the couple abruptly separated and Jolie filed for divorce, asking for physical custody of the children. Pitt was accused of being drunk and becoming abusive in an incident on a private jet. Jolie even alleged that he verbally abused their oldest son when the teen jumped into their quarrel to defend his mother.

As of 2018, a court ordered the couple have joint custody, and ordered that Jolie not interfere in the relationship between the children and the father. The mother was also prohibited from listening into Pitt’s phone calls with the kids, or checking the kids’ phones for messages from Pitt.
