Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie has alleged that her former husband Brad Pitt has not paid any `meaningful` child support since their split in 2016. 

As reported by E Online, in a two-page brief submitted at L.A. Superior Court and obtained by NBC News, Angelina`s attorney wrote that the actress plans to request a court order for the establishment of a retroactive child support order.

"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 plans to request a court order for the establishment of a retroactive child support order," read the statement.

Pitt and Angelina, who filed for divorce from Pitt in September 2016, are still fighting over custody of their children. 

Financial documents are yet to be exchanged between the two since it is a routine for any divorce settlements around the world.

The ex-couple has six children together, three of whom were adopted internationally. They were together since 2004 and tied the knot in August 2014. 

Jolie's attorney has sought judgement on the couple's divorce within the calendar year of 2018. The bitter legal battle for the custody of the couple's children as prolonged their divorce proceedings for over two years and the actress now wants a judgement on the matter by the end of this year.
