Angelina Jolie wants divorce finalized by end of 2018

"Via NBC, Jolie's attorney, Samantha Bley DeJean, said, "[Pitt] has a duty to pay child support.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's divorce is not getting any easier.

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

In June, Pitt and Jolie's custody battle hit a fever pitch and a judge required Jolie tell their children that the "court has determined that not having a relationship with their father is harmful to them", that they are "safe with their father", and that having a healthy relationship with both parents is "critical". Initially, she sought sole physical custody of their six children, Maddox, 17; Pax, 14; Zahara, 13; Shiloh, 12; and twins Knox and Vivienne, 10, though Pitt later filed for joint custody.

Angelina Jolie has reportedly accused her estranged husband, Brad Pitt, of shirking child support payments.

DeJean goes on to state that Jolie would like the court to have Pitt pay her the money she is owed.

Nearly two years after the Hollywood power couple separated, Jolie is trying to kickstart the process so that it can be finalised by the end of the year.

The divorce filing, citing irreconcilable differences, triggered a bitter custody dispute during which Pitt was investigated and cleared of child abuse.

Sources close to Pitt told Page Six that Jolie made the court filing as part of a smear campaign to tarnish her estranged husband's reputation after he chose to re-start the formal divorce process.

ET has reached out to Pitt's rep.

Pitt was later provided with cell phone numbers for each child, in order to text and call them without Jolie's supervision.

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.

The "Moneyball" actor said in an interview past year that he had quit drinking, was undergoing therapy and that he and Jolie had made a decision to abandon "vitriolic hatred" and work together to sort out their issues.
