Source Says Brad Pitt Has Paid "Millions" in Child Support Despite Angelina Jolie's Claims He's Not Paid Enough

Poor Brad Pitt! According to a source, the actor has paid "easily millions" in child support to his ex-wife, Angelina Jolie. In fact, the insider told People it's been "far more than any informal agreement would stipulate and far more than any judge would have ordered paid if there had been such an order." But Angelina is saying otherwise. Her lawyer, Samantha Bley DeJean, filed papers with an La court on Tuesday, Aug. 7 claiming that "[Brad] has a duty to pay child support. As of present, [he] has paid no meaningful child support since separation."

Angelina Jolie Gushes About Queen Elizabeth: "She's a Lovely Lady Who Really Cares About People"

When Angelina Jolie famously shook Queen Elizabeth's hand at Buckingham Palace back in 2014, the royal clearly made a lasting impression on the A-lister. In the new ITV special The Queen’s Green Planet, the actress visits Namibia with her six kids to teach them about forest conservation in Africa. In fact, Angelina learned much of the insight she's passing on to Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 11, and Vivienne and Knox, 9, from the Queen herself when they met nearly four years ago. "For us to come here and say to the children, 'This is why it’s important to plant a tree,' that’s the biggest message I can teach my kids, and it’s something that they’ve certainly learned from Her Majesty and her message," she says in the documentary airing on Monday, April 16.

Brad Pitt Sees His Kids, but Not Nearly as Much as Ex Angelina Jolie Does!

It's no secret Angelina Jolie has been enjoying custody of her children — Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 11, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 9 — but does her soon-to-be-ex-husband Brad Pitt see the kids, too? From what In Touch's informants have told the news outlet over the past year and a half, it sounds like the War Machine actor's visitations are few and far between. Brad and Angelina's divorce proceedings have been nothing short of savage, by all reports, but we almost got a ceasefire. Earlier this month, a Life & Style source said the exes were "days away from signing off on their [divorce and custody agreement]" and Brad "was looking forward to spending a large amount of quality time with the kids this coming summer."

Count Arthur Strong and the comforts of traditional sitcom

Louisa Mellor Sep 26, 2016

When life hurts, well-crafted, traditional sitcom like Count Arthur Strong can be an indispensable salve…

There’s a period a little while after a family death, after the days spent in a traffic jam of errands, decisions and phone calls, when you have to merge back into the regular lane. Normal life demands to re-start. The fridge needs filling and the lawn needs mowing, even if, impossibly, the person who usually does both has vanished forever.

For my family like most others, normal life means watching television. Telly is the cradle that rocked us through the decades. Whatever happened to us happened against a backdrop of soaps and sitcoms.
