Brad Pitt's pals come to his defense: He's no deadbeat dad

Brad Pitt's pals come to his defense: He's no deadbeat dad

The ex-couple has six children together, three of whom were adopted internationally.

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

The former couple - who have children Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and nine-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox together - split in 2016, but are still at loggerheads in court over their divorce filing, with Angelina now alleging her former partner has paid "no meaningful child support" since their split nearly two years ago.

According to an NBC News report, Jolie will now force Pitt to pay the child support, however, the two-page file does not define what constitutes as "meaningful support".

The transition from Annadurai to Karunanidhi is a rallying point not just for the DMK, but also for the state's politics. It wouldn't be until 1989, two years after MGR's death that Karunanidhi would step back into the Chief Minister's chair.


Brad Pitt's team fired back at Angelina Jolie's claims by insisting he has paid millions to support his children.

The document also said that Pitt has "paid no meaningful child support since separation" and said that although informal arrangements had been made with him, payments "had not been regularly sustained".

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".

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

Both actors are said to be keen to "work out the details of the divorce", but they have been "unable to reach an agreement that they are both happy about".

The two - who share Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 10-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox - separated in September 2016 after two years of marriage.

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.

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".
