Angelina Jolie seeks 'meaningful' child support from Brad Pitt

After a period of relative peace, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's divorce has become a battleground once again.

A source close to the star tells EXCLUSIVELY that Brad has done everything to fulfill his obligations to his kids, but that Angie keeps changing the rules.

On Tuesday, Angelina Jolie's lawyers brought a new filing to court alleging that Brad Pitt hasn't paid ANY "meaningful" child support for the a year ago and a half during their ongoing divorce proceedings - a HUGE accusation, if proven to be true!

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". They have six children for whom she is seeking primary custody.

It's been almost two years since the once-untouchable celebrity entity known as Brangelina dissolved into just Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt after the actress filed for divorce.

The estranged couple has not yet finalized their divorce, and reportedly put the process on hold as they worked out a shared custody agreement.

Mindy Nyby, a spokeswoman for the actress, said on Tuesday that the court filing was intended "to provide 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".

Reps for Pitt declined to comment and Jolie's didn't get back to us.

A TMZ report previously claimed Jolie was fighting Pitt "so hard and nasty" that her lawyer, Laura Wasser, was ready to quit. 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".

However, it's unclear whether Pitt's designated time with the children will be affected by the latest filing by Jolie's attorneys, amidst their allegations that Pitt has not lived up to his "informal agreements" for child support.

Pitt and Jolie have three sons and three daughters, ages 17 and under.

When asked how Jolie was coping (as seen in the video above), she said, "My focus is my children, our children, and my focus is finding this way through".
