Angelina Jolie wants divorce finalized by end of 2018

It comes amid rumours Angelina's divorce with Brad Pitt is turning sour, with the star's lawyer having to deny she was leaving the case.

Angelina Jolie Pitt says she wants her divorce from Brad Pitt finalised before the end of the year. "As of present, [Pitt] has paid no meaningful child support since separation", Jolie's attorney, Samantha Bley DeJean, writes in the legal documents that were filed on Tuesday.

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".

It's been almost two years since the once-untouchable celebrity entity known as Brangelina dissolved into just Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt after the actress filed for divorce. The documents acknowledge that the duo had an "informal arrangement", but that Pitt has not lived up to that agreement.

Angelina Jolie has reportedly claimed that her estranged husband Brad Pitt has not paid any "meaningful" in the last 18 months, but sources claim the allegations are a publicity stunt to try and make him look bad.

In June, however, the court ordered Jolie to help fix Pitt's relationships with his children, as "not having a relationship with their father is harmful to them".

Brad has paid "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", according to People.

Reps for Pitt declined to comment and Jolie's didn't get back to us. In the child custody hearing in June, the judge did not directly address Pitt's worth in relation to the child support he is allegedly supposed to pay 'informally'. A source familiar with the matter told ET at the time that it seems someone misinterpreted facts about the Oscar winner's divorce case with Pitt, and that new experts had been brought on, signifying a "new phase" of the divorce proceedings.

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.
