Brad and Angelina are still getting divorced and, as Vanity Fair points out, the proceedings will probably “outlive us all.”
At this point, the post-marriage back and forth between the celebrity couple – famous for adopting everything that moves – looks like it’s going to last longer than the marriage itself.
Brangelina accumulated a ton of kids in their time together, and until very recently, Angie was claiming that Brad wasn’t contributing as much to their upkeep as he should be.
A court brief filed by Jolie’s attorney, Samantha Bley DeJean, claims “as of present, [Pitt] has paid no meaningful child support since separation.”
It continues, “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 R.F.O. [request for a court order] for the establishment of a retroactive child support order.”
In California, child support is decided between the parents, so it’s unclear what “meaningful” means in the context of two ridiculously wealthy celebrities – especially when your kids are so kitted out in designer brands that an average outfit costs the same as a university degree.
Brad has admitted to substance abuse problems before, in a revealing Vanity Fair article. He was also accused and then acquitted of child abuse – the initial cause of their separation back in 2016.
Angie has been reluctant to give him too much time with the kids:
A document surfaced earlier this summer, which showed their judge ordered Jolie to give Pitt more time with their six children. Jolie had taken a job in London, bringing the kids with her, so the leak did not make her look good.
The court prescribed an gradual increase in the amount of time the kids had with Pitt, saying, “It is critical that each of [the six] children have a healthy and strong relationship with their father and mother.”
Fair enough. Also, can we stop reading about this now.
