In Touch has exclusively learned that Angelina Jolie, who is still fighting for sole custody of their six children, is making outrageous demands of Brad Pitt and his legal team.
An insider says that Angelina, 41, wants $100,000 a month in child support. “This will pay for all of the kids’ expenses as well as set up a trust fund for each child,” says the insider, adding that $250,000 would be set aside each year and put in the kids’ trust by Brad and be capped at $5 million.

Brad, who’s seeking joint custody of Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 10 and twins Vivienne and Knox, 8, “has no issue with taking care of the kids,” but he prefers the money stay in a trust instead of letting Angelina have control of it via child support payments, the insider explains.

It’s not as though she needs the money, Angelina is worth $160 million. But Brad, 53, is worth a massive $240 million, and she is trying to use that as leverage.

"I think a few months in I realized, 'God, I can't wait to get to work,' " she told Vogue in 2006. "Anything we had to do with each other, we just found a lot of joy in it together and a lot of real teamwork. We just became kind of a pair."
