Angelina Jolie has had it up to here, ya’ll! According to TMZ, Angelina wants to put William Bradley Pitt in her rear view mirror, have her driver put the Bentley in reverse, and run over his nogoodnik ass. Angie’s got two things cooking at the moment. For starters, her NEW attorney (Angie, you’re giving us whiplash, sweetie!) has just filed papers claiming that Brad hasn’t been paying enough child support. She’s seeking a court order to get the money she believes she is owed. But secondly, before that happens, she’d like the judge to make their divorce official because she cannot stand to be married to him for one second longer. And all this happened before noon today. Poor Brad probably just woke up!
NBC News is reporting that a new court filing shows that Angie is asking for back child support from Brad, even though they never agreed upon an official settlement. Angie’s new attorney, Samantha Bley DeJean, wrote in the filling that Brad “has a duty” to pay child support but has not done so in “a meaningful way”. Loose change for when the ice cream truck comes isn’t gonna cut it, Brad!
“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 RFO for the establishment of a retroactive child support order.” (An RFO is a request for a court order.) The court filing did not define what is “meaningful” support.
It’s been almost two years and we’re only now finding out that Brad’s a deadbeat? It seem like this would have come up earlier. I guess it must cost a lot to keep Angie’s army kitted and fitted; their sneaker budget alone is probably the GDP of some small nations. If Brad’s not pitching in, that’s a damn shame. But the timing of these accusations seems a little suspect. Hell hath no fury like a woman- not so much scorned, but more like, super not getting her way. If we’re to believe previous reports (a lifetime ago, for a gnat) that Angie has a ball of rage stuck in her throat over the fact that Brad may get joint custody, these new claims of unpaid child support might seem like retaliation.
Meanwhile, TMZ reports that Angie is so ready to be a divorcee, she’s asked the judge to end the marriage officially, even before the custody has been finalized.
Angelina’s new lawyer just filed legal docs asking the judge to issue a final divorce decree this year.
So I guess if Angie does get her way it’ll go down like this: The judge makes them officially divorced, Brad pays Angie a huge lump sum for back child support, he doesn’t get joint custody of the kids and continues to pay child support for at least the next 8 years (the twins are 10, my where does the time go?), his nuts get mangled in a freak yoga accident, and she goes on to win a Nobel Peace Prize AND two Oscars (directing and acting) for a movie featuring her stirring portrayal of a martyred Saint of the same name.
