Angelina Jolie Explains Why She Requested Child Support from Brad Pitt

Jolie filed papers Tuesday claiming that Pitt has not paid "meaningful child support" for their six kids since their split two years ago. Per NBC News, the actress is asking the court to compel Pitt to pony up because "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".

The documents did not clarify how much is considered "meaningful child support".

Pitt was later provided with cell phone numbers for each child, in order to text and call them without Jolie's supervision.

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. She is not allowed to monitor the minor children's text messages with their father.

Said another pal, "Brad has completely lived up to his commitments as far as child support and will continue to do so". "The custody agreement is in full effect and that has left Angelina seething with resentment and looking for any way to control the situation".
