The court filing did not define what “meaningful” child support is.
A Pitt insider who is familiar with the situation counters, “Brad always fulfills his commitments.”
Jolie’s spokeswoman, Mindy Nyby, said on Tuesday, “The aim of Angelina’s routine court filing is to promote closure to the marriage in a way that clears a path toward the next stage of their lives and allows her and Brad to recommit as devoted co-parents to their children.”
Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt in 2016, citing irreconcilable differences as the cause of their split. Today, her lawyer, Samantha Bley DeJean, asked to appear before a judge to schedule a status conference in the case, hoping to address the financial issue amid their separation; Pitt’s rep did not immediately respond to request comment when contacted by media outlets about Jolie’s filing. Under California law, each parent is responsible for providing for their kids, based upon the agreement between the couple; per Jolie’s attorney, the exes had an “informal” agreement.
