The documents acknowledge that the duo had an "informal arrangement", but that Pitt has not lived up to that agreement.
The actress, 43, is shooting the sequel to Maleficent in London, while the actor, 54, is filming Once Upon a Time in Hollywood in L.A. Pitt has also spent time with at least five of his six children in the United Kingdom, after a judge ruled "not having a relationship with their father is harmful". The court filing is the latest development in Jolie and Pitt's hard-fought custody battle over their six children - 16-year-old Maddox, 14-year-old Pax, 13-year-old Zahara, 12-year-old Shiloh and 10-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne - that's been ongoing since their split in November 2016 after two years of marriage.
"Jolie's attorney, Samantha Bley DeJean, stated: "[Pitt] has a duty to pay child support. As of present, [Pitt] has paid no meaningful child support since separation. But she can't leave with the kids for several months'. According to the Jolie source, it's "ultimately up to the court" to set up "an arrangement that is in the children's best interest".
The brood is now living in London with Jolie as she films Maleficent 2, while Pitt has spent his court-ordered time with the kids in London and Los Angeles, where he is shooting Quentin Tarantino's new movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Jolie's net worth is slightly smaller, estimated at $160 million. They have six children for whom she is seeking primary custody.
Women's Month: Mothers are encouraged to breastfeed regardless of HIV status
Breastfeeding prevents hunger and malnutrition in all its forms, and ensures food security for babies, even in times of crises. It is important to note there are circumstances that make it challenging or not possible to breastfeed.
However, given the history of child support payments between celebrities, it's likely that Pitt would have to pay a substantial amount each year.
Pitt's spokesperson has yet to respond to the allegations, which emerge days after Jolie's representative, Mindy Nyby, denied reports suggesting the actress' main attorney, Laura Wasser, had quit over "internal conflicts" regarding the case.
Pitt and Jolie have three sons and three daughters, ages 17 and under.
The "Moneyball" actor said in an interview a year ago that he had quit drinking, was undergoing therapy and that he and Jolie had made a decision to abandon "vitriolic hatred" and work together to sort out their issues. "And so that is how I am coping...to find a way through that somehow makes us stronger".
