Angelina Jolie Pitt wants divorce finalised by year's end

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's divorce proceedings have taken another turn. A source close to the actor told the news outlet: "Brad has fulfilled his commitments". "Jolie plans to request a court order for the establishment of a retroactive child support order", read the statement.
Angelina Jolie reportedly wants to divorce Brad Pitt as soon as humanely possible - even though the pair have been fighting for custody of their children for nearly two years.
Just when we thought the dramatic divorce proceedings between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt (aka Brangelina) were coming to a close, it seems there's a new wrinkle to the almost two-year battle.
DeJean goes on to state that Jolie would like the court to have Pitt pay her the money she is owed. The problem is, every single time their attorneys have tried to hash out the terms for child support, just as they're about to reach an agreement, Angelina has suddenly changed the goalpost.
Angie originally made their split super ugly in 2016, by making all sorts of private details of child custody issues public.
According to the ruling set down by the judge in June, Pitt has been given a summer schedule to see his kids, minus the oldest child, Maddox, who has been deemed old enough to decide how much time he wants to spend with his adoptive father.

But a source claims to ET that Jolie's latest move is in retaliation over the actress being ordered by a judge in June to help fix her children's relationship with Pitt.
