Angelina's attorney Samantha Bley DeJean stated in papers filed on Tuesday, August 7: "Pitt has a duty to pay child support".
"Brad has fulfilled his financial commitments, so it's unfortunate that anyone would misrepresent the situation and continue to play this out in the press", a friend of Pitt told ABC News.
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.
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 towards the next stage of their lives and allows her and Brad to recommit as devoted co-parents to their children".
According to the latest report by TMZ, Pitt has not paid "meaningful child support" since he and Jolie officially separated, though it is not clarified what exactly he was expected to do for child support.
Jolie, 42, filed for divorce in September 2016, citing irreconcilable differences.
Now Pitt pals are fuming to Page Six that the "Seven" star has in fact been forking over hundreds of thousands a month - and that Jolie is just trying to smear her ex by claiming he's a "deadbeat dad". They have six children for whom she is seeking primary custody.
Sources close to the matter told us that the Jolie-Pitt divorce - which had started off with an ugly slew of unfounded allegations against Pitt - had been put on hold and moved to a private judge so that the couple could sort out thorny custody issues.
The arrangement for child support was allegedly informal, per the TMZ report, but Jolie claims that Pitt has not even lived up to those informal expectations.
Pitt admitted in his first post-split interview in May that heavy drinking contributed to the breakdown of his marriage, and said he was now a teetotaler.
