Angelina Jolie is ready for her marriage to Brad Pitt to be over now!

TMZ's sources also said that Angelina's claim that Brad hasn't paid "meaningful" child support is "a joke" and insist proof will be presented that contradicts what's in her lawyer's latest filing.

Meanwhile, TMZ reports that Jolie has asked the judge to finalize the divorce before their custody dispute is even settled.

On Tuesday, Angelina Jolie alleged in court papers that her ex Brad Pitt was failing to to support their six children financially following their split.


The declarations came in a request for a case-management hearing filed Tuesday by Jolie Pitt's attorneys in Los Angeles Superior Court. According to a new report from NBC News, Jolie will seek a court order to force Pitt to pay.

Actors Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie attend the premiere of "The Normal Heart" in New York, NY, U.S., May 12, 2014.

The judge warned Jolie directly, "If the minor children remain closed down to their father and depending on the circumstances surrounding this condition, it may result in a reduction of the time they spend with [Jolie] and may result in the Court ordering primary physical custody to [Pitt]".

However, given the history of child support payments between celebrities, it's likely that Pitt would have to pay a substantial amount each year.


ET Canada has reached out to Pitt's rep for further comments.

The court filing did not specify what "meaningful" support is, but a spokesman for Pitt says that the 54-year-old actor has fulfilled all of his commitments.

Jolie, 42, filed for divorce in September 2016, citing irreconcilable differences.

Jolie's lawyers are requesting to appear before a judge, so they can schedule a status conference to address all of the financial issues in the separation.


Angelina Jolie has reportedly claimed that her estranged husband Brad Pitt has not paid any "meaningful" in the last 18 months, but sources claim the allegations are a publicity stunt to try and make him look bad.
